    Sasha is 3 years old. We were told she is Pit mix but I do not see it in her so much at all. She has the sweetest temperament of any animal I've come across.

Loves to cuddle, house broken and crate trained. Loves to take walks and play outside with her ropes and other toys. She has been on a medical plan since her birth and is up to date on all vaccinations and physicals, along with routine Trifexis meds.

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 

    Found Honey (Red Nose Pit Bull) in Okolona area by Arby's at Preston Highway and Outer Loop intersection. She had a collar on with a Meade County tag on but couldn't locate owner. Cannot keep due to financial and work demands, but refuse to give to shelter/ pound because of her breed. Very sweet baby girl, listens to commands. She knows sit, lay, and shake. She loves to play with tug toys or anything she can chew on, and enjoys playing fetch. She doesn't seem to like bones. The only food we can find that she liked was Beneful Chicken. She has never been around kids, but she has never met a person since in our care that she doesn't want to ... (Read More)kiss and love on. However, she doesn't interact well with other animals. We need a home for Honey where she can run around and get a lot of one- on- one time. She will get sad and stop eating if left alone too long. (Less)

Personality: Low Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    This gentle, broken spirit is a LOVE BUG who will absolutely thrive with a family of his own. He has been a street dog for his life this far & was taken in by our local shelter when he was shot with a BB gun & threatened with poison. His crime? He was stopping to visit & nap in the shade with a chained dog. He absolutely adores other animals & in fact, they give him great comfort. Just a few short weeks ago, he was terrified of humans but has blossomed into a sweetheart who now asks for attention & seeks out affection. He is neutered, HW-negative & is fabulous on a leash. He never potties inside - only on grass! I have personally worked with ... (Read More)this dog weekly & can answer any questions. He needs a schedule and home of his own ASAP! Our shelter is incredible, but is an over-crowded, under-funded rural facility that does euthanize. Please help me save this little prince! He's been through too much & deserves to live a life of royalty. (Less)

    Rosie has 2 weeks left to live unless someone without animals and kids can adopt her. Her owners are giving me 2 weeks to get her adopted or they are euthanizing her. She will be 11 in a month. She has nipped and bit their newborn baby and is biting the other dog in the home. Praying someone can let her live out her final years because she still has a lot of life left in her :(

PIease Read Before Adopting a Pit Bull in Kentucky
    Pit Bull Dogs can make good pets in Kentucky if they match your IifestyIe. The American Pit Bull Terrier is a powerful dog with an undeserved reputation for inherent viciousness. A Pit Bull that receives attention, firm training, and thorough socialization makes a wonderful family guardian that is trustworthy with children. Pit Bulls need committed, experienced owners that exude leadership. Pit Bulls excel at high level obedience with proper training. Pit Bulls have been bred for dog fights, and unfortunately a dog that is abused, neglected, or whose instinctive aggression is encouraged, can become hostile and dangerous. Pit Bulls can adapt to apartment life with enough exercise.

lnteresting Pit Bull Trivia Low-Cost Kentucky Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Some people believe that Pit Bulls are identical to what Bulldogs were in the past. American Pit Bull Terriers are very similar, and some argue identical, to Staffordshire Bull Terriers.
