    Choco! This guy is full of personality and has just the cutest face. He's had a rough past and has never been in a home before. Can you imagine never feeling safe your entire life?? Poor guy doesn't even know what a couch is. He's stolen our hearts for sure and is making great progress. He does really well with house training and actually prefers to do business outside. He loves to play with toys, run around, and absolutely goes crazy for bum scratches! He has lived with two large dogs in the past but he can come on a bit strong. He needs work on a leash because his previous 'owner' never walked him. Choco a Boxer mix, 2-3 years old, UTD on ... (Read More)vaccines, neutered, and microchipped.

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. Unfortunately, Pit Bulls are often used for illegal dog fighting. American Pit Bull Terriers are very similar, and some argue identical, to Staffordshire Bull Terriers.
