Pit Bull    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Needs Vaccinations 

    Jasmine is sweet, in a single dog environment. She has a companion (older)dog she hurts when they play. She needs other dogs who can take her play energy. I rescued her from her 'bait dog' status a year ago and have now realized I cannot foster any other animals for fear she may not get along with them. I got her shots when I first got her but fell on hard times as most do these days and have let them lax. She is kennel kept at night, and she actually prefers it most of the time.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Riley is a very sweet and beautiful pit bull mix with brindle coloring. She is very affectionate and really good with children. $75 adoption fee will cover a flea dipping and nail trimming. She is not house trained but she comes with a training crate, toys and collar. She gets along with my other dogs fine, but she eats a lot and and pit bulls are actually illegal in Pearl. We didn't know. She was a rescue (we adopted her at 12 weeks) and we honestly thought she was a boxer puppy. It wasn't until we took her to the vet for the first time that we were made aware she was a pit mix, and that just isn't really what we wanted. My oldest dog is 8 ... (Read More)yrs. old and Riley is just too much for her. I want her last years to be pleasant, and Riley plays too rough - because she's still a puppy, not because she's mean. She is a good dog, but she keeps jumping the fence (4 foot cyclone) and I'm afraid she's going to get out and get picked up. We need to find a *GOOD*, caring home for her ASAP. Please and thank you.

Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Needs Vaccinations 

    Sugar is a very happy loving dog! She will do best in a home with a single male most likely. She needs someone who wants to spend time with her. She has always been an inside dog but never kennel kept. She pretty much runs my house. Lol she is spoiled and in charge. She does not like to share so she can't live with other animals. She is not aggressive towards children but she will chase u down if u run or are on a riding toy or bike so best she isn't around them. She plays too rough.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Heartworm Positive 

    The volunteers called me 'Cookie' because I am 'sweet' and 'kids love me'. I would just love to call me 'adopted' so I could have a home of my own. I know that my chances are not as good at getting adopted like they would be if I were a Yorkie, or a Labrador because they tell me that I am a Pit Bull terrier. I know that we don't have the best reputation in the world, but I am not like all those other Pit Bulls that you hear about. I was used as a breeding dog to produce more Pit Bull puppies. I just wanted to be a good family pet and a great mom to my little babies. But my babies were always taken from me even when they were very tiny ... (Read More)and I was never sure what happened to them. I just longed for a home where I would be loved and not just kept in a fence, no love, no affection, and just enough food and water to survive. My only purpose was to produce more puppies. Fortunately, that has ended. I have been spayed and I have had all of my vaccines and been wormed so I am feeling great and very healthy. I have a beautiful brindle coat except for a spot on my back. I heard it was a home remedy for fleas and ticks to use burned motor oil to kill them, but it burned my back where they poured it on me. The burn is healed, but my beautiful coat is marred because of that. But my spirit is not dulled! I am very active and playful. Very loving and affectionate. I love giving kisses. I love going for walks and just napping in the sun. I am good with other dogs and people of all ages. I really am a very good girl. I just need a great home just like any other dog. I am hoping that you will see my beautiful face---I think it's beautiful---and the longing in my eyes and just say, 'Now there's the dog for me!' And if you do, you will make me the happiest dog alive. (Less)

    He was thrown out of a car at my daughter's house in Mantee, Ms. and I took him in to help, but I can not keep him and I had to take him back to my daughter's house. He needs a permanent home. He is a sweet dog. We have 1 other dog and 2 cats. He has no problem with them at all. My daughter has 2 other pits and 2 smaller dogs along with a 2 yr. old child and Apollo gets along with them great. He showed no signs of abuse or a 'bait' dog at all. He's very healthy. I just can't keep him with my lifestyle and the other animals I have.

    Great dog, we just cannot keep him in the place we are living. The people who were keeping him for us could not give him the attention he needed, so they gave him back. He loves lots of attention and walks and his stuffed bear (now not so stuffed). He needs a good home with room to run.

Rescue Me ID: 14-03-31-00020Sasha Fierce (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    Hi! My name is Sasha Fierce. I'm a 2-year-old 'pocket pit.' I have been searching for my forever home for 1 year and 3 months! I am black, approx. 45 lbs, and have the most adorable bat ears you've ever seen. I'm not the 'prettiest'' little girl, I have many scars on my body from my hard life before I was rescued, but I am very sweet and would love to be your best friend! You might be wondering how I got the name 'Sasha Fierce.' Well, I was only 19 lbs. when I came to my foster parents, and they named me after a bootylicious diva (Beyonce!) as inspiration for me to get healthy and put on some weight. Well, it worked! I'm all ready for a ... (Read More)home of my own. Like my namesake, I tend to be an 'alpha female.' I need to go to a home with no other pets and can have all the food, toys and love for myself! :) I am spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and house trained. I am kept in an crate inside when my foster parents aren't home, but I HATE being in the kennel and sometimes have accidents if I am in there all day. My ideal home would be with an active family, couple or individual that could get me plenty of exercise. I haven't had too much experience with kids since my foster parents don't have any, but I would likely do will with older kids. I would do great living in the country (but I cannot be off-leash unless in a yard with a secure fence on invisible fence!). I am a 100% inside dog and my foster parents want my new owners to bring me inside and make me part of the family. I am absolutely positively NOT a fighter, guard dog or lawn ornament. I will not be kept on chain - period! A little more about me: I love toys, treats, food and peanut butter! I love to lay on my back and get my belly rubbed. I love love love walks and am working on my leash manners. My foster parents require that potential adopters submit an adoption application. If approved, potential adopters will be required to allow a home check and provide a vet reference plus 2 personal references. My foster parents would like to receive occasional updates after I am adopted about how I am doing and to make sure I am safe and happy. If you have any questions or are interested in meeting me, please contact my foster parents: Ariel King 318-237-8447, aking22@tigers.lsu.edu. Tyler Gamble 601-319-2653, tylergamble@me.com. (Less)

    Hi, my name is Geraldine and I am an 8-year-old Pit Bull that was brought to the shelter by my owner who could not keep me.

I don't want to spend my holidays in a shelter, so give me a chance to show you what a great addition I will be in your family!

PIease Read Before Adopting a Pit Bull in Mississippi
    Pit Bull Dogs can make good pets in Mississippi 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 Mississippi Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Some people believe that Pit Bulls are identical to what Bulldogs were in the past. Unfortunately, Pit Bulls are often used for illegal dog fighting.
