    Tucker is a 7 year old boxer/pit mix who has been in and out of our adoption program for the past 6 years! Poor Tucker has just never been able to find a family who loves him unconditionally and can make a commitment to him! Tucker is a very laid back guy who enjoys lounging in the sun, napping and watching TV. He is also happy to go for runs or chase balls around the yard. Tucker does not care for other animals and does take his possessions at little too seriously at times. He would be successful in a quiet, adult only home where he can play when he wants to play and relax when he wants to relax. He is house trained and has very good ... (Read More)house manners. $175.00 adoption donation ($200 for puppies under 6 months old) helps us take care of all the dogs we rescue. All dogs are spayed/neutered, tested for heartworm and tick borne diseases (if old enough) , microchipped and vaccinated for rabies (if old enough), distemper/parvo and bordetella. They are also treated for internal and external parasites if needed. Many dogs also receive extensive medical care such as surgeries and dentals.

    My family desperately needs help now!!! Meet Kinsley. She is up to date on all vaccines and spayed (vaccines are do soon, and we will pay for vaccines if adopted). Loves kids of all ages and is a total cuddle bug and couch potato, but needs to be in a single dog home. She found her way to my mom as a stray puppy, emaciated and covered in scabs, maybe 6-9 months old? She's been living comfortably with her canine brother and sister for 5 years now, up until a year or so ago. She starts fights with them, sometimes with triggers like food or toys, but more recently with no triggers. I've witnessed a few of the fights and I've helped all I can. ... (Read More)And my mom and step dad have been trying several different training methods over the last year with no success. All they can do now is keep them separated. Unfortunately, a fight broke out this weekend and a toddler almost got in the way. This was the last straw for my family and if I can't find someone or a rescue to give Kinsley a second chance, she will be put down. Can anyone help? (Less)

    Bella is a 4 year old Pit Bull. I have had her all 4 years. She is eager to please and loves all people. She was attacked by a German Shepherd when she was two, and ever since then she has not liked other animals. She knows basic commands: sit, stay, shake, down when getting fed. She is house broken. I am moving into an apartment that won't let me have her, and it's heart breaking. I hope someone with a good heart, and lots of knowledge about the breed can give her a new home. Thanks for looking

    My name is River. I'm a beauty with a wonderful disposition. I'm currently living with 2 dogs; one is bigger than me, one is much smaller. I do great with both of them. The big one and I love to play together. The little one stands by and watches us like we are crazy! There is also a cat in my foster home. I get along fine with the kitty, as well. In fact, there isn't much I don't do well with. I have been great meeting kids in the neighborhood that want to pet me, and I will pretty much do anything for some love and a cuddle. Praise and petting go further with me than even treats do. My foster mom says I'm a shadow dog. I just want to be ... (Read More)near you. I do great in the car, in the crate when no one is home, and I am getting the hang of this house-training business. I am learning how to walk politely on leash, and I know how to 'sit' on command. I'm an all-around really great dog, if I do say so myself. You would be lucky to have a best friend like me.

    Sherman is as sweet as they come! He loves people and gets along well with all other dogs. Sherman is house broken and a quiet gentleman in his crate. He is so outgoing and adapts very quickly. Sherman was surrendered to a kill shelter by his former owners when they could not afford to care for him. He has a mass on his leg which will need to be removed, will need surgery on a non-cancerous mass on his chest as well. However; Sherman's prognosis is very good, and we believe he will live a long and happy life after his surgery. He needs a forever home to recover in and live happily ever after. 7 years old, 50 pounds (1/2016)

Rescue Me ID: 16-01-13-00543Leia (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Hi, my name is Leia and I'm desperate to find a new home! I'm very sweet and loving and would love to be a lap dog. My current owners think I'm a Pit Bull cross (someone suggested Pit Bull/Blue Heeler and that's about my size but I don't remember my parents); I'm about 3 yrs old, a spayed female with a thick short chestnut/chocolate brown coat and a lovely white heart marking on my chest. I'm told I have an under bite so I look cute when I smile. While I love to crawl into laps, I have good manners, so I'll respect you if you tell me to lie down and I never get on the couch unless I'm invited. I'm small enough that I can almost fit on ... (Read More)your lap, or at least cuddle next to it! I love giving kisses. I'm very quiet in the house and am happy sleeping on my bed, but I also love to play and run outside - I'm very fast and agile! I have Invisible Fence where I live now and I respect the boundary even when my collar battery is dead. I'm also good on a leash. I used to pull when I first moved here, but my owner gave me leash lessons (I might need a refresher, it's been almost a year). I don't mind being in my crate. I'm good with farm animals like horses and donkeys - they're big enough that I don't chase them and I'm smart about staying out from under their feet. I would probably do best in a home without kitty cats. I think they are fun to chase! I do get along well with other dogs, but I can be a little protective of food and toys when I'm around other dogs, so I should I fed separately from them. I haven't met any small children so I can't give you my opinion on them. But if you are a grown-up human who loves smiling, affectionate Pitty crosses, I'm your girl! (Less)

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.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    My name is Roman & I am a super sweet wild child who would love a home of my very own where I would prefer to be a only child. I can be dog selective so they rescue is requiring I go to a only dog home (no cats either please...they look like squeaky toys to me). Because I have tons of energy the rescue also asks that I attend a training class to make me the best friend I can be for my new family. I am about 2 years old & I love people of all sizes. I walk pretty nice on a leash & I ride well in the car. I am UTD on all my shots & will be neutered prior to adoption. Adoption fee is $175 to cover costs...

    [Read About Natural Incontinence Care] This is Hope,she is a red nosed pit around 3 years old we took her in about 2 years ago, after my sister in law who had rescued her from a very bad breeding/abuse situation but could not keep her we thought the name 'Hope' was fitting given her history and new life she has had many health issues that we have gotten taken care of including ear infections and heartworms..she is a very very loving animal but we just can no longer keep her as our toddler seems to be developing an allergy..there is nothing 'wrong' with her per-say other than she was not potty trained when we took her in and shortly after when ... (Read More)we took her to get fixed she was diagnosed with heart worms so we got her all treated but any progress we made in potty training her was lost over the course of the year of treatment and limited outdoor time,but I'm sure given the proper time and dedication she'll pick it back up she's a very smart girl. I know she would make another family very happy..she is warm and loving and a total snuggle bug, she has been very loved and if not for the allergies would not be giving her up, I don't want to send her to the local animal shelter because I know the stigma attached to pit bulls and how often they get put-down..and she deserves better..she deserves a loving family and I'm hoping by going through rescue me I have more of a chance of ensuring that..you can call, text or email me anytime day or night (Less)

    Boston has a kind soul. He is everyone's favorite dog. He is quiet, sweet, and well-mannered. Poor Boston ended up at a high kill shelter in SC with a death sentence because there just wasn't enough space in the shelter to keep him alive. We saved him and moved him to boarding where he sat and waited with a broken heart for someone to come and take him home. While in boarding, Boston was attacked by another dog in the run beside him. Despite being mangled by the other dog, Boston remains dog friendly and doesn't even pay any attention to kitty cats. Boston is just a dog that wants someone to love him. Are you Boston's happy ending?

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)

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

    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)

    China, nicknamed 'Ladybug' is a sweet little girl that still acts very puppy-like. She is a fairly high energy dog and loves to play, but will settle at the end of the day (preferably snuggled up right beside you!). She definitely is a 'with you' dog. She is good with dogs of all sizes, is house trained for the most part and does well in the crate. We would recommend that she not go to a home with small children only because she doesn't always know her own size, especially when excited. She is working on learning basic commands with her foster mommy. Is China your new best friend? Apply today if you think so!.

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Brody is a VERY SMART boy. Too smart,sometimes. He needs more room to run than I can give him. He deserves better. I love him and that's why I need to rehome him. I am asking a rehoming fee to help pay off vet bills. When he wad 4 months old, he came down with Parvo, and I had to spend almost 1200 dollars to keep him alive. He was well socialized before but after parvo he isnt too fond of other dogs. He is choosy. He does fine with my corgi amd border collie. He does need a fenced yard, not somewhere he will be chained up.Please call or text for more info. He is also microchipped. Thanks for looking.

    Jax is a one year old male Pit Bull. This beautiful black and white bully boy is a sweet boy, but lacks good manners as he spent most of his puppyhood in a shelter. Jax is good with all people, but as he wasn't taught better as a small pup, he is very mouthy and rambunctious, so is not recommended for children or adults that are slight in stature. Jax needs a stable home with lots of love and patience, as it will be needed to train this good boy on the proper way to behave!

    Beautiful brindle girl Somaya wants to be your new best friend! Somaya was adopted from us as an itty bitty puppy after we pulled her from a shelter several years ago. Now, nearly 3 years later, she's back with us and waiting for a REAL forever home this time. Somaya was picked up by animal control running loose in her neighborhood and taken to our local shelter. Shelter staff was able to get in contact with her previous owner, but unfortunately, they decided not to return for her. Somaya has been living in a home as the only animal in the house her entire life, so she needs her new owner to be patient and introduce her to other pets ... (Read More)slowly. Somaya has lots of wonderful, playful energy, and would make someone a terrific hiking, running, or biking buddy. Because she's so playful and happy to meet everyone, we recommend a home with older children so no little ones end up getting bumped, tail-thumped, or knocked over by once of Somaya's famously powerful lick baths.

    Poor Niles was thrown from a vehicle going down interstate and rescued by a family that witnessed this horrible incident. The family was unable to keep him so he was taken to a high kill shelter in south Carolina. Thanks to some amazing volunteers the funds were raised to amputate his severely broken leg. Niles joined VPFP in 2012 and was adopted shortly after. Poor guy thought he had a family off his own until they decided to move and not take him.

    Mixer was saved once from a mean person who was abusive. He thought he found a wonderful family, but unfortunately when they moved, they decided not to bring him along. He is so sweet and so scared. He wants to be pet, but spends his time trembling (you can see him trembling in the video). Poor Mixer is so sad at the shelter, you can read it on his face that his heart is broken. He is so cute with his short legs, big brown eyes, and little floppy ears.

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. 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.
