    My name is Ziggy and I'm the sweetest Pocket Pittie you will meet. I am about two years old and my very most favorite thing to do in the whole world is to ride in the car, with giving kisses running a close second. I am pretty confused because I used to ride in the car with my human dad, but then, one day, he stopped the car and set me out on the road and drove away. I thought he would come back for me but never did. Why would he do that to me? Some nice people from a shelter picked me up and then my rescue friends now keep me safe and warm. My new family should plan on walking or jogging with me lots, as I am an athlete, and love to ... (Read More)walk and play. I have liked everyone I met-dogs, cats, and people, though groups of small children can be a bit scary for me. I'm just not used to all of that activity around my face! I am housetrained and current on my vet care'|And neutered, of course. If you would like for me to join your family, please write pals@psknet.com. (Less)

Personality: High Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Fearful/Anxious 

    Chloe is a very affectionate 60 pound baby who often thinks she's a lapdog! Though Chloe can be very energetic and get wild while playing, she also has a lot of anxiety and doesn't like to spend a lot of time alone. She has very itchy ears due to chronic yeast infections. Due to finances, she hasn't been able to see the vet for these issues and I sadly need to give her up. Chloe is not housebroken yet but she is good about using her puppy pads. Chloe needs a lot of space to play and get exercise! She definitely loves to play tug of war with people too!

    Hi! I'm Jameson.%A0 I am an amazing dog who gets along with other dogs, hoomans of every size, and although I'd like to play with cats... I think they avoid me. My foster mom says whoever gets me will be very lucky! I have a mild case of mega esophagus - it isn't too hard to manage. Basically, it just takes a little longer to feed me from his special feeding 'bench'. Sometimes I need to wear%A0a soft cone overnight and when napping. I'm%A055 lbs. of solid muscle so I don't think I would be great around small kids. I just loves people and other dogs. I%A0love visits to the bark park. My foster mom says we are 'still working on leash ... (Read More)manners.' It seems I also do better with a grain-free diet. I'm%A0such a loving and relaxed dog just looking for someone to love me Fur-ever! (Less)

    Bella Gray is a 9 month old mixed breed female who came into rescue when she was found on a busy road. Unfortunately, no owner could be found so she is now searching for her forever family. Bella is going to be a great dog for someone as she is very smart and is super responsive to training! She knows the 'sit' command and learned it within a day.

She is learning her leash skills and is already very conscious about crate training and does not mess up her crate when left ... (Read More)overnight...it should not be hard to house train her. Bella has been to our vet, tested negative for Lyme and heartworms, and has been treated for intestinal worms. She has been started on Heartgard and Advantix. Bella will be spayed and microchipped before moving on to her forever home. She weighs about 35 lbs. and will be a medium sized dog when fully grown.

This handsome lab/bully mix was rescued from a small high-kill shelter in NC when he was dumped by his family as they moved out of town. This solid built love-bug lived with kids, ages toddler to teenager and another dog but wasn't given much exposure to any other dogs' especially small dogs or cats. Because of this, he would do best in a small dog/cat free home. He can be very active and bouncy at times so he may do best with older children who can ... (Read More)handle this boy with the heart of a puppy! He can get along well with dogs his own size but isn't quite sure how to properly introduce himself. He needs a gentle yet confident, knowledgeable owner to help guide him on meets. He is easy to work with though because he wants to please you. This boy has a heart of gold, with a silly, engaging personality and the most expressive eyes that are sure to make you smile and melt your heart. He loves playing with toys, car rides, and just hanging out with you. He's housebroken, has pretty good house manners, and listens well to you. He is good on a leash, and loves to go for walks but could use some extra training. He loves head scratches, endless belly rubs, giving kisses and naps on top of the couch cushions. The key to unlocking this boy's great potential is exercise. He likes to do laps around the yard to show off his super speed! He must have a way to release his energy and once he does, he is happy and content and his personality really shines through. He is truly a great companion, he just needs someone to give him a chance to prove how wonderful he is!

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.

Pit Bull
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.
