Animal ID: 14FC08Ivy (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Ivy is a sweet and loving beautiful pit bull. She is strong willed and independent at times, wanting her time to run around and sniff what she would like to sniff. Ivy is a big 'love bug' who loves attention and treats. She knows her basic commands of sit, stay, and come and will do them willingly. Ivy gets along with most dogs but would need to meet your pooch just to make sure. She DOES NOT get along with small dogs. She can walk on a leash and doesn't pull too much. Ivy loves to give dog kisses and would rather sit with you to cuddle then play all day. Ivy has been spayed and is current on all vaccinations.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    This is Miss Jessa! she is a sweet, happy little girl, and I do mean little she is only about 40 pounds. She is up to date on vaccinations and fixed, and has just started her basic training skills. She is very smart and attentive. She loves to go for walks, but is also happy so cuddle on the bed and watch tv She gets along with everyone and anyone, but she does have a habbit of jumping up so until that is worked out I would not recommend small kids. she deserves a home and has had a rough beginning at a high kill shelter and is now ready to start a new life with a great loving family...could that be you?

PIease Read Before Adopting a Pit Bull in Rhode Island
    Pit Bull Dogs can make good pets in Rhode Island 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 Rhode Island Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Some people believe that Pit Bulls are identical to what Bulldogs were in the past. Teddy Roosevelt owned Pit Bulls. A disproportionate number of Pit Bulls are put down in major American cities each year. American Pit Bull Terriers are very similar, and some argue identical, to Staffordshire Bull Terriers.
