Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament

    Cenzo is a Lab Pit mix. He has a good easy going temperament. He is good with other pets and loves humans. He needs activity in walks and playing on the beach. He is house trained, he is fairly good on a leash. I rescued him two years ago and enjoy being with him. I am being relocated out of country by my employer and cannot take him. He needs a strong person to control him but he is a very good dog.

She is very laid back and easy going. Have pictures of her with the shelter cat --very cat friendly. She is very sweet and gentle. We need to find a home for her soon.

    Gulliver is a locally surrendered dog. He was surrendered along with a female Pit bull. Gulliver is male, neutered, currently weighing 56 lbs. He has received a rabies vaccination, but would need other vaccines. He is testing heart worm positive. His ears were trimmed professionally by a veterinarian. No evidence that he has been a fighting dog. He is very sweet and gentle and seems to adore his female companion, Gracie. Our rescue will consider doing more in the way of vetting if an adopter is identified for Gulliver.

Health: Spayed, Needs Vaccinations, Heartworm Positive 

    Gracie was a local surrendered dog. The woman 'claimed' she was NOT her dog, but Gracie was picked up sleeping under the carport at the woman's home. Gracie is female, approx. 55 lbs and very thin. Ribs are showing. She has been given rabies. Not spayed, but in heat currently. Our rescue will do more with vetting if someone will adopt her. We will seriously have to consider putting her to sleep soon if we cannot find a home for her. She is great with dogs, adults and children, but is NOT cat friendly at all. Very good on her leash. She appears to be approx. 2 - 3 years old.

    Cookie is a female, brindle Pit bull. She is fully vetted. NOT CAT FRIENDLY. Good with most dogs and is great with adults and children.

Rescue Me ID: 15-01-02-00068Precious (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Very Submissive 

    Precious and her brother were seen roaming on 12/28 and it was said the brother was aggressive. On Monday morning she showed up in my garage to take shelter from the rain and cold. There was no aggression shown at all from Precious. In fact, she was incredibly loving and thankful. Late the same morning I called the shelter to find her brother was picked up by a Good Samaritan and was not adoptable because he was aggressive. Well lo and behold Precious was aggressive toward my other dogs. That was until we introduced them each one by one and properly. She is not aggressive toward humans or food and is aggressive or sounds like it if the ... (Read More)dogs come up to her in her kennel or they are not put together to play in the right setting. By this I mean Precious breaking into the house and running toward them never seems to work out well. Each dog has been introduced to her in the field where there is room to run, frolic, and play. Those times there were never any problems. She is housebroken, has good manners, and does sit on command. All she wants is a place to be safe, loved, feed, and be the dog she knows she is. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-12-30-00362General (male)

Pit Bull    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Heartworm Positive 

    General is one of the sweetest most kind hearted dogs I have ever met. He needs a home where he will have unconditional love and where someone has the time for him. He does not jump, bark, or growl. He doesn't get on furniture unless you let him or coaxed him to get up there with you. He has been great around my children which are six and one. He is an older dog so he's not so much into playing a lot anymore but he will play some.

Rescue Me ID: 14-12-20-00033Hope (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Malnourished,
 Abused/Neglected, Fearful/Anxious 

    I was alerted to this pup living in the woods by the side of a country road. I trapped her and have cared for her. I have completed all of her vetting. She was treated for demodectic mange with complete recovery by August 2014. She has been dewormed, vaccinated and spayed by my vet. She needs someone experienced who can work with her fearfulness of people. She is sweet and submissive, but needs more socialization than I can provide her. I'm a cat rescuer and cannot safely work with her as I already have 6 children, 7 cats and 2 dogs in my home. I cannot surrender her to our shelter as she would be euthanized. I do not feel ... (Read More)comfortable adopting her out as she is not ready. I am praying if you have experience with such situations you would be willing to give Hope a chance, because at this point, it is all I have to offer her. (Less)

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.
