Rescue Me ID: 16-07-26-00565Sophia (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Sophia definitely needs a young family and most definitely needs kids or other playful dogs. No older people or old dogs, she loves her people and really needs to have kids to play with her. I truly believe that. She's amazing and so loving and loyal and is an excellent guard dog with new people or outside sounds (just alert, not attacking anyone or anything) and she loves the kids.. So much. She's very playful, loves her toys and will chase a ball or toy all day but then wants to just cuddle on the couch. She has never destroyed anything in the house if left unattended and never ever pees or poops in the house.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Donovan is one of our newest rescues,and he is pretty amazing. He is approximately 3 years old. He is Heartworm Positive and still on his Doxy. He will be on slow kill for now. He has already been through far too much. We believe that someone really loved him at one time but came in as a stray and was extremely thin, but he loves every single dog that has been presented to him. Right now Donovan is being fostered in VA Beach with a male bully mix who climbs all over him and even chews on his lips. Donovan has no care. Cats are unknown at this time but I almost feel like you could toss one at him and he could care less about that also. He is ...

    This big strong boy wins Mr. Personality--- paws down! Sam is a perfect gentleman-sweet, well-mannered and loyal. He'd love a family who will be as loyal to him as he will to them and give him all the love he deserves, but being a bigger boy, he's best suited to a home with older children to be his new pals.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hey world, I'm Odie! I'm around 1 1/2 years young and I've got loads of personality to share. I love to play with my favorite hamburger squeaky toy and give lots of kisses. Netflix isn't really my style, but I'll lay patiently at your feet while you binge away. I am 55 pounds of pure love, but since I'm still a puppy my rambunctious play can be a little too much for very small children. I'm incredibly loving and loyal, so I prefer to be introduced to strangers slowly so I can get used to them. Same goes for dogs, sometimes I can be a little nervous when meeting new puppy pals. But don't let that stop you from checking me out, I'm very smart ... (Read More)and eager to learn and would love to meet you in person to show you that my stunning looks have an awesome personality to match. (Less)

    Hey y'all! My name is Dandelion but I really prefer Dandi. I'm really happy now because for the first time in a long time, I have a house to sleep in and humans to pet me. But it's not permanent. I really want a home to call mine forever. My foster mommy loves me but she can't keep me forever. My foster mommy found me last week after I had been abandoned by my owner. I don't know why but my owner just couldn't keep me any longer. My foster mommy took me in and fixed my boo-boos I got from being outside and took me to a nice doctor to get medicine. Now my boo-boos don't hurt so much. The doctor said I'm a health 2 year old little girl and I'm ... (Read More)all set to go to a forever home. I've been trained and know lots of stuffs. I can sits and go potty outside. I come when told and I know NO means NO. My foster mommy tells me all the time I'm a good girl! I really like other doggies. I also love kids of all ages. I'm really friendly towards everyone. Foster mommy says if you want to adopt me, we still have to meet your family first human and furry. She also said there's an adoption fee to bring me home and it's $150 and its just to cover the dollars she spent on taking me to the doctor. I'm healthy and have my heart worm preventer stuff so I won't necessarily need a vet visit when adopted. I just went on Monday and have papers to prove it! If you're interested in adopting me or learning more about me, please message Tatiana or you can email her at tatichriscart@gmail.com. If you can't adopt me, please share my story so my new mommy and daddy can find me! Lots of kisses, Dandi (Less)

To resolve this, we only give treats that can be eaten with 30 minutes. She has also show aggression to her personal space when crated but nothing serious unless you are trying to take her food. She however, does fine sharing everything else. (Less)

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    He's great with kids, cats, and dogs. We have a lot of training to do but the good news is that he's extremely responsive to positive reinforcement. His high energy needs a lot of space. He needs training and would make a great working dog for someone willing to take the time. My niece, who lives with me, was dog sitting Buster. The owner failed to return to pick him up. She has an older dog that needs a lot of care and cannot manage both dogs. I have two cats and can't handle Buster's level of energy. If he isn't adopted soon, we will have to take him to a shelter.

    Hi there! I'm Bella, they say I'm a pit bull dog, but I think I'm actually a Southern Blue Bell. While a Southern Bell doesn't normally reveal her age, I'll will say it's somewhere around 2, I know my house manners, that means I potty outside and will tell you when I need to. I'll even sit in front of the door until you open it. I am what they call crate trained, but I really don't like the thing. I'm currently fostered in Virginia Beach, Va where I'm busy learning all the important things a good Pit Bull Ambassador needs to know. I get along well with most other dogs and totally adore children. I have lived with toddlers and find I ... (Read More)prefer children old enough to understand how to behave around ladies like me. Did I mention the toys? Yes, lots and lots of puppy toys, I really like balls and nyla bones. I'm even learning how to work puppy treat puzzles! If you find you can't live without me please contact...... (Less)

Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Bentley is a 9-month old Red-Nose Pitbull that is very playful, loves to cuddle, great with kids, loves to play tug of war or any outside activity. He is potty trained and will let you know when he needs to go outside. He listens very well and learns quickly. It breaks my heart to lose Bentley but he is my family's first pet and unbeknownst to us, my youngest son is allergic to him. I'm having to keep Bentley and my son away from each other as much as possible and it's become a strain in the house. I hope that someone is willing to take the time to play with Bentley and love him as much as we do. I am looking to re-home him as soon as ... (Read More)possible. Please contact me anytime. (Less)

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    My husband found Clark running down the middle of the highway on his way to work one morning. He scooped him up and brought him home. He was just a bag of bones then. His energetic personality was a bit of a handful in the beginning. Over time he has become a wonderful companion. He best buds with my boxer and absolutely adores my 8 year old. It is with a heavy heart that I look for a new family for him. Clark needs a fenced in yard, and lots of space, that we just can not provide for him. My handsome Clark would be a loyal and protective family member to his forever home.

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    She is very loving to people she knows, loves hugs and belly rubs. She has fear aggression with some strangers. I believe with the right trainer she could get past this. She is smart, house trained and will also go in a crate for short periods of time. The fear aggression is a result of her not being socialized when she was young because we did not intend to keep her. She is used to being around another dog. She has no known health problems. I cannot keep her any longer as I have to move.

Rescue Me ID: 16-06-12-00100Charlie (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    This is Charlie. Charlie needs a new home very soon. These aren't super good pictures because I can't get close to him. I am allergic to Charlie and my reaction to him (hives mainly) is increasing in severity. We can't keep him in the house because of me, and he isn't happy being by himself in the garage or outside. I can't take the kids to play with him because of my allergy, so he can only be played with when my husband is home. Charlie just isn't happy with us, he deserves a better living situation. Help us find him one. Charlie was born May 9th 2009, and we've had him ever since. His mother was our dog, and she passed away a few years ... (Read More)ago. Charlie is up to date on his shots and has received all of his care from the good folks at the Animal Hospital of Ivy Square. We aren't sure what breed he is other than being a hound mix with some pitbull. His mother was hound and pit, we don't know who his father is. He is crate trained and prefers to sleep in his crate at night and when he naps. Charlie is about 85lbs at my best guesstimate, I would call him a large dog. He loves to play, walk, run, and just be loved on. When he was able to be in the house with us he very much thought he was a giant lap dog. He is very protective of us, our house, and our kids. He used to put himself between Cooper's gated off play area and the front door anytime I stepped out of the room. But because of this protectiveness he doesn't appear to be friendly at first. He does need time and space to warm up to strangers and new people at his own pace. He has been to obedience school/received training and responds well to leash commands, hand gestures, verbal queues etc with some practice of course. Charlie is not a fence jumper or hole digger, and did well in a standard height chain link fence in a wooded area with wildlife. However, he will take advantage of a poorly latched gate or one that can be easily knocked open. He does not bark without provocation (he HATES the UPS truck. The FedEx truck and usps truck, totally fine LOL) and has never howled. We have tried everything we can to keep Charlie with us over the years, and barring someone giving us a house with farm land and another animal of some sort to keep him company outside, it just isn't possible and that makes us completely and utterly sad. We've been trying everything we can think of to rehome him. We've called shelters and SPCAs, posted on Craigslist and Facebook. And here we are, moving today and our poor baby can't come with us (there is no where for him to be outside of the house and he can't be in it with me). We want him to be happy. (Less)

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

    Evan means 'young fighter' and that's just what this boy is. (You can see the beginning of Evan's story here: http://barcdogs.org/Save_Evan/Save_Evan.html ) At under six months old, he has already been through a broken leg and head trauma, resulting in a surgery to fix his leg and the sweetest little head bump you'll ever see. After all that, with a long stint of crate rest, when most would think he doesn't have much fight left to give, Evan is still going strong. He is sweet beyond words, a heart dog in the making. Evan is extremely intelligent, learning new tricks in just a matter of minutes. He's very treat motivated and wants to please ... (Read More)his people. He is currently living with two dogs, a large male pit bull and a tiny female toy poodle and gets along with both of them. He's also living with 3 very young, energetic children and while he isn't quite sure of his size and strength, he loves them to pieces. Evan is very smart but being so young, he has a lot left to learn and a lot of energy. He will do great in an active family who wants both a young puppy to grow up with them and a snuggly companion to be by their side. Evan is completely crate trained, loves the car, and is currently learning many simple commands. If you would like to know more about making him part of your family, you can check out our adoption policy page: http://barcdogs.org/Adopt_Info.html (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-05-13-00217Floki (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    My name is Floki. I'm a sweet boy who lives for love and affection. And sticks. And food. I just want to snuggle and my dream is to be a lapdog. Mom says I'm too big for that, but I haven't given up yet. I'm house trained and finally growing out of the chewing phase (except for sticks and toys, of course.) I grew up with lots of dog friends, but lately I don't get along with others. That's why I have to find a new home; I cause fights too often with my adopted brothers and once I hurt a neighbors dog. I'm ready to be an only child (no cats, either,) so I can have all the attention for myself. It would be great if my new family had a ... (Read More)fenced-in backyard, because I don't do very well on a leash. But I know how to sit and shake and give kisses. I might be willing to learn more if you give me treats...or sticks... **Floki is a courtesy listing to help his owner find him a new home. He is already neutered and up to date on vaccines. Please email rubytuesdy@hotmail.com for more information. (Less)

    Romeo is a sweet and friendly dog, thus the name 'Romeo'. He loves everybody! He is about 6 years old and weighs 70 lbs. He listens well, likes to play with his toys and other dogs. Loves attention, will sleep in your bed if you let him, but has his own. Romeo has the run of the house while owner works and is very well behaved. Never destructive. He is not aggressive toward strangers. Enjoys riding in the car. The reason I can no longer keep Romeo is that I am moving and the rental that I'm moving to does not allow dogs. Please help me find my best friend a new home!!!!!

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Clover is a dog that is built for lovin! She has a happy disposition, is eager to please and is an easy student. Clover loves to learn new things! This pup recently had her check up and she is happy, healthy and ready for her forever family. No known health issues, completely house trained, up to date on her shots and current on heartworm and flea/tick meds. Clover will be around 50 pounds once she gains a little needed weight. She is a dog that seems to get along well with other dogs, including large ones. She hasn't been cat tested, but with a proper and slow introduction, she could probably learn to love them too. Clover has shown no ... (Read More)territorial issues, has no food/treat aggression and in fact has displayed no aggression, period. This wonderful and peaceful dog is happy to share a blanket and chew a bone while her foster brother lays across from her and chews on his own. She is curious and will bark when looking out the front door and notices people walking up the drive, but otherwise she is pretty quiet. Clover is now crate trained, but honestly would probably do fine having access to the house during the work-day. Her foster mom is crating her when she is not at home, because her foster brother is still in the puppy stage and together they may become mischievous. At 5 years old, Clover is the best of both worlds; calm and loving, with plenty of playfulness and energy to fit in with a fun-loving family. Clover is sharing a Facebook page with her foster brother. You can learn more about her on his page: https://www.facebook.com/basilhaydenthedog Interested in adding Clover to the family?

Tucker is a 7 year old boxer/pit mix who has been in and out of our adoption program for the past 6 years!

She is 2 years old and has been with her current family since she was 5 weeks old after they found her through a listing on CraigsList. She is spayed and current on all vaccinations. In her current home, her mom says that she will sleep and sunbathe with the other dogs. She allows the other dogs to clean her and even growl a bit on occasion and there are no issues. However, if the other dogs become agitated (barking or nervous/cowering), her mom ... (Read More)writes that they have to 'grab [Oakley] and control her.' Her mom goes on to say 'we are now dealing with a pregnancy in our home and the stress of keeping all the dogs safe is too much' and 'we need to find a home for her within the next 6 months.' Oakley needs a home with an experienced dog owner or rescue group who understands what needs to be done to identify, manage and/or resolve her issues. Her owner had contacted several other rescues but none have been able to offer Oakley a space. If you would like to help Oakley, please go to www.momsrescueva.org to submit an adoption questionnaire to MomsVA. (Less)

    I'm Nyla, a 4 year old, sweet, tail-wagging beauty. I'm a LOVER-GIRL! I can't get enough attention. I just want to hang out wherever you are. You want to go on a walk; I'm your girl.

I'm an active girl and I'm looking for a fun family to share my zest for life with. I enjoy a good snooze by the fire after a walk through the neighborhood meeting my fan club. The public adores me! I am easily entertained chasing the squirrels in my fenced backyard, chasing after a ball or zipping around chasing my flirt-pole toy. You may have ...

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Hi guys! My name is Apache, and I sure am glad to be out of the shelter. I was found wandering the street with my two little puppies and was brought to the local animal shelter. The shelter was filling up, and I was in a tight spot. Luckily, Virginia Paws for Pits came to my rescue and helped my family out when we needed it the most. Now, I'm in a foster home getting lots of love and am ready for a home of my own. I really LOVE other dogs, so I would be happy to share my home with another dog or two. I can even live in a home with kitty cats! I think they're cute and they don't bother me at all. My favorite thing in the world is love and ... (Read More)affection from people. My foster mom says I'm a very sweet boy and that all I want is approval. Apply to adopt me today and I will be your new best friend! I am approximately 2-3 years old, and I weigh about 55 pounds.

    Always ready to step into the spotlight, Goofy wins the prize for THE most photogenic dog on campus. As soon as the camera was turned his way he became a total HAM, posing every which way for his centerfold. He soaked up all the attention with glee, wiggling about, lounging in laps, and flashing his broad smile at everyone. If his expressive face isn't enough to win you over, Goofy's happy carefree nature is certain to draw you in. Goofy arrived at the shelter as part of a neglect case and he is still very underweight and in need of some TLC to restore him to prime form. But his spirit is undamaged and he would love to share all his ...

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Titan is a beautiful big boy with tons of playful puppy like energy. He always needs a never ending supply of toys and hard bones to chew on so he doesn't chew on things he's not supposed to. He is mouthy but listens well when corrected and given something proper to chew on. He doesn't seem very snuggly due to always being on the go but I'm sure that would change with time. He has no leash training and is very strong. I would recommend he have a fenced yard because he likes running around in ours but will not stay out there alone and will scratch frantically at the door if it's closed. He knows how to sit and lie down and is extremely treat ... (Read More)motivated. He listens very well when corrected. He is house broken and will go into a crate but does not like being alone and will bark and whine. Other than in the crate I've not heard him bark. He's very alert to sounds and is always interested in what you're doing. He snores and snorts like a pig which is adorable. He would make a great family dog with older children due to his size and puppy like nature. He needs someone who will be very patient with him and devote a lot of time helping him become the perfect dog. (Less)

    Brutus is truly a joy! His one goal in life is to get love and affection from his humans! He does well in the bathtub, and is an absolute angel in his crate. He actually really enjoys his crate and goes in and lays down without being asked! Loves, loves, loves to go on walks and on car rides! I think he would be great with a submissive female or two, and with SLOW introductions I think he could do okay with a submissive male in home with parents that are bully educated. He so far, he's done great with his foster brother and sister on long walks. He will need to be fed in a crate without other dogs around, as he is a little over zealous of ... (Read More)his food. He will let his humans take his bowl away and even stick their hands in there, but will bark at other dogs if they walk by him while he's eating. It is not an aggressive bark, it is more like 'Keep it moving, buddy!' He does have a bit of a prey drive and will chase squirrels, rabbits, and cats, so a no cat home would be best for him. He is super smart, and eager to please. He has learned 'look,' sit, down, and is working on stay. He loves to have his head and his chest rubbed and absolutely melts into you if you do either. We cannot say enough wonderful things about this boy. He is pure joy, and Wants to please every step of the way!! (Less)

I am very friendly, I want to play and run the whole day, yes I am a puppy, so I am full of energy. I love music for dogs and if I have my ...

I've never been around cats or small dogs too much, so i dont think I'll like them too much... and in my house there are no kids, so I am not sure if I am good around them. So please help me to get a home and help my human mommy to keep her job and her mental health (she is already devastated thinking she will have to let me down) please help us! I will pay with love and licks :) update: unfortunately I had to surrender Nola to the Fairfax county animal shelter. She is being there since June 6.

    Enough kidding around already, I just want a home of my own to have forever! My name is Rocco and I'm still waiting for my happily ever after. I know I deserve one! I've been in my foster home for 1 1/2 years now. I love my foster mommy and we've learned a lot together. I was what you'd call a 'handful' when she first took me in, but now I'm just pain handsome, and the only thing I'm full of is love and doggy farts :) My foster mommy has to move soon, and I can't come with her, so I need a new home very fast. VPFP has been trying hard to find me a home, but for some reason, no one has noticed me yet. I had to go into long term boarding one ... (Read More)time before my foster mommy had me, and I really didn't like it. I was scared and anxious and it took me a very long time to be comfortable in a home again after all that stress. I hope I never have to go to boarding for a long time like that again, I just can't stand the thought of it. This is the reason I need a home so super bad and super fast so I don't have to go back there. I do like other doggies and will go for walks beside them on my leash no problem! I think that is so much fun. The VPFP humans say I'm a 'resource guarder' because I don't want to share special cool things like toys and bones with other doggies that I live with. I might be best as an on only dog for that reason, but if there is an experienced doggy person out there who knows all about those kind of things already, I think I would like to live with another dog. My birthday is coming up in August and I will be 5 years old. I don't want to be in a boarding kennel on my birthday. I want to be in a home eating doggy cake. Will you please share my pictures and my story so my new mom and dad can find me? If you have any questions about me, I (er, I mean my foster mom and the VPFP rescue ladies) can answer all of them! Just email them at virginiapawsforpits@gmail.com! (Less)

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