Rescue Me ID: 15-03-31-00128Maisey (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    My name is Maisey. I'm a tiny package of fun, that has adorable written ALL over me! I have so much going for me, besides my good looks, that you are just going to want to make me yours in a heartbeat. I am house and crate trained. I know the command 'sit' and I am learning to 'lie down'. I LOVE car rides and think the best place to co-pilot from is in your lap. I should probably be secured in the backseat so we both can concentrate on the road. :) I have two furry foster siblings that I get along with very well; even the grouchy foster sister has succumbed to my charms and lets me hang out with her now. I'm a very well-balanced gal. If ... (Read More)you take the time to introduce me properly to other doggies, I can get along with most any of them. I love, love, love to cuddle. I can curl up into such a small ball next to you, that you'll think you adopted a cat instead of a petite pittie that actually comes when you call, unlike those felines that could care less. I LOVE to curl up on any soft surface; beds (yours), couches and cushioned chairs are the bomb-diggity. I can't get enough of cuddles and cushions and blankies! Don't get me wrong, cuddling is only part of my charm. I love, love, love to play. I have the cutest little dance I like to do when I get excited; which is most anytime I see you. I stomp my little front feet and wiggle my butt for all I'm worth. I talk too, when I get excited'|play with me'|play with me'|play with me. Please excuse me, though, if it takes me a few seconds to make sure you are best friend worthy. I am doing my best to overcome my past, but someone way back when wasn't so nice to me, and that has made me just a little bit timid with strangers. Once you pass muster, I'm all kisses and butt wiggles. Because I am still working on my confidence, I will do best in a home with big kids that know how to be gentle with doggies like me, who are happy dogs in scaredy-cat bodies. So what do you say? Are you looking for a happy dancing, couch cuddling, want-to-please, friend to other dogs kind of girl? Well, look no further! That's ME. You can learn all about how you can make me yours by checking out BARC's policy page: http://barcdogs.org/Adopt_Info.html (Less)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Mange (Demodectic) 

    Cuteness alert! Yep, I'm warning you ahead of time'|if you don't want to fall in love, close your eyes and move on. My name is Apple. I'm part pit bull; part pocket pet. No one actually knows my heritage, but at 5 1/2 months and 23 pounds, I'm going to be a TINY girl when I grow up! You won't have to worry about me taking up too much room on the sofa. I am currently being treated for demodectic mange, so I'm missing a lot of hair right now. Don't worry though, it will grow back in soon. What I do have is brindley perfection, with sparkling white trim. Brindles are the BEST, you know! And my EARS'| Everyone says my ears have a life of ... (Read More)their own. I even have the cutest 'turkey' neck. Gobble. Gobble. I am a unique and wonderful conversation starter. I'm already crate trained and pretty close to being house-trained. I've only been out of the shelter a few weeks, but my fosters say I'm doing really well learning my house manners. I know how to sit for a treat, and I'm willing to learn all the things doggies need to learn to be great companions. I am looking for a family that will take the time to teach me all kinds of fun and interesting new things. I'm great with other dogs and well-mannered children of all sizes. I'm what they call 'quite the catch'! So if you can't get enough of my cuteness, let my people know that you would like to make me part of the family. I'm quite the catch, you know!

Rescue Me ID: 15-03-27-00458Miley (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Adult

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

    She is a very sweet, spayed 32 lb. female mixed breed. She is 7 yrs old, but as fit & healthy as a 1 yr old. She is completely housebroken and crate trained, but also trustworthy when left loose in the house. She is obedient, friendly, and LOVES to snuggle. She is great with children, but best with older kids because she can get rambunctious when she plays. It would be best if she were the only dog in the home. She would most likely be fine with submissive dogs, as she has always played well with our relative's two female dachshunds. If you are interested in adopting her and are able to provide her with a responsible, loving home, please ... (Read More)contact me. Please note: She will come with a wire crate (if you need it), a leash & collar, some of her food, and her vet records. I will require a re-homing fee to ensure she goes to a responsible home. We are re-homing Miley because she and my young female dog got into a fight shortly after my husband and I married and moved in together. We believe Miley intended to correct my dog's relentless obnoxious, nipping, and mauling behavior, but my dog fought back rather than back down. We have kept the two dogs apart ever since. My daughter was traumatized by this and now has anxiety and fear over the two dogs getting together again. Her therapist urged us to remove one of the dogs. My younger dog was abused as a puppy and is not friendly with strangers, so we cannot re-home her. Miley is such a sweet and loving dog that she deserves a home where she can be free to be a part of the family again. She loves to snuggle up on the sofa, give lots of kisses, and give and receive lots of affection. (Less)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    Luca is full of love he is still rather puppy like in his antics and loves to be played with. He is great indoors and out. He will be a great companion for a single or a couple. He has to warm up to people and when he trusts he loves. I have had him since he was 6 months old, but he hasn't been socialized. I must travel with my job and I am having a very difficult time managing his care while I am out of town. I probably have until winter and I will have to put him down...I cannot bear to leave him unattended any longer. I truly wish someone would come to this loving boy and give him a chance to love them the way he has me.

Rescue Me ID: 15-03-24-00718Rudolph (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult


    1 year old Rudolph's body shows us that he hasn't exactly had the most amazing, well cared for life. He has his share of scars and whatnot, most likely from a life outside (no he's not a fighting or bait dog, different scars) and he would really like to experience the family life. Truthfully, right now Rudolph is a truckload on a leash, has a bit of anxiety, and seems like he's hungry all the time. We are working on all of that. Some dewormer, some one on one time, and some leash manners will go a long way with this boy. Underneath all of that, Rudolph is sweet. He has a beautiful and loving heart worth knowing. Rudy may very well really ... (Read More)like other dogs, but he he may have a higher energy play style. He REALLY wanted to play with a free roaming Chi yesterday. Rudy will be putting on the weight, gettig some extra love and attention, and will need someone to fall in love with him so he can have a family of his very own. An indoor family. A family that shows him how to be pampered and adored. In return, that family will be the center of Rudy's world for life. Stop in and visit with Rudolph and see just how much he is waiting to hand his heart over to his forever people. It will melt your heart. He is waiting for you at Isle Of Wight County Animal Shelter.

Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Great family dog. Loves to play ball. Likes kids and adults. She lives on a farm and is trained to invisible fence containment...so, doesn't really know how to walk on a leash. She will come when called. She is aggressive toward strangers. She got out of our invisible fence because her collar battery was weak and she bit a neighbor walking down our lane. My neighbor is going to make life very miserable for us and for Willa if Willa remains with us. I am hoping she can find a good home in a more suitable environment. She has been well cared for.

    Great dog! My wife and I took him in when he was around 6 months old from my brother who was moving to Texas for a job and couldn't take Leroy with him. We've had him for about two years now and unfortunately we can't keep him any longer. He is great around other dogs and people but he does get hyper when you return home after being gone for several hours. He is house trained and neutered. If you have any specific questions, please let me know.

She is a people loving, people pleasing, dog loving puppy who will be an absolute delight for an active family. We did discover that cats are not her thing. We also found out that Pandora is going to need long lines, training, and supervision when outside as she tends to jump fences to visit other doggie friends. This ...

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Heartworm Positive 

    Sara and her 8 newborn puppies were surrendered to a rural high-kill shelter in SC. She could not deal with the stress of being a mother. So her puppies had to be raised by shelter staff. The 3 surviving puppies have been adopted. Since Sara is still waiting for someone to love, DDB is bringing her to the DC metro area where she has a greater chance of finding a home. She is a sweet, loving girl who is about 4 years old and weighs 44 lbs. It is her hope that someone will see her picture and let her share their life. Sara is good with adults and children over the age of 7. This girl needs a foster home with a patient, understanding ... (Read More)person to give her a lot of love and help her learn to trust again. Sara is very dog-selective and would prefer to be the only dog. Since she does not like cats, she must find a feline-free home. Sara will need refresher training in house manners, leash walking, and basic obedience. She has been diagnosed with heartworms and will receive treatment. Her adoption fee includes spay and transport to the DC area. Are you the special person or family for Sara? She will repay you with gentle sighs, loving looks, and joy for a lifetime. Please apply to foster or adopt Sara today. (Less)

    My name is Charlie & I am a beautiful pitty boy who had the misfortune of having owners who didn't take good care of me. They put a collar on me as a puppy & chained me up but they never changed my collar as I grew up so it became embedded in my skin & it hurt me badly. Thankfully I was rescued by the animal control officers who took me to the vet and had the collar cut out of my skin. Then I was taken to the animal shelter where I waited to see if someone would want to add me to their family...sadly nobody was interested in me and my time ran out. That's when the people here at the rescue stepped up to give me a safe place to live until my ... (Read More)family can find me. I am good with people of all ages & I seem to be good with the other dogs here. I walk great on my harness (I can't wear a collar yet) and I like to ride in the car.

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Heartworm Positive,
 Abused/Neglected 

    Jezabel was taken from a backyard breeder and now is in a rural high-kill shelter in SC. The shelter is closing and all of the dogs still there on 3/31/15 will be euthanized. DDB would like to rescue Jezabel. But she needs an approved foster or adopter before we can bring her to the DC metro area. Despite a neglected past, she is sweet and lovable wiggle butt. Jezabel is about 4 years old and weighs 63 lbs. She is a gorgeous girl who likes attention. Jezabel will follow people around being calm and attentive. She really craves a human companion of her own. Jezabel gets along with cats. While she is good with most other dogs, Jezabel ... (Read More)does better with male dogs. Since she is an alpha female, she might tell a male dog to knock it off if he gets too pushy. While she knows some basic commands, she might need a refresher course in house manners and leash walking. Unfortunately, her previous owner did not keep her on monthly preventatives and she was diagnosed with heartworms. Once her treatment is over, Jezabel will be as good as new. Her adoption fee includes spay/neuter, shots, and transport to the DC area. Can Jezabel come and live with you? Your reward will be a lifetime of kisses. Please apply to foster or adopt Jezabel today. (Less)

Pit Bull    Age: Puppy

Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered 

    I was given a puppy pit a couple of months ago and was going to keep him because my 16 year old Rottweiler died about a week earlier- My boss brought the puppy to my house and gave it to my son who was devastated about the loss of our dog, he did not ask but thought he was doing us a favor. I have 4 son's and currently fell into some finance issues so am staying with family until our place is available but unfortunately I have not been able to find a place that accepts pets- I brought him to a shelter- they told me it was a no kill shelter but a couple of days later they called me and said if we do not pick him up in 3 hours he will be put ... (Read More)to sleep- I could not handle him being put down so I picked him up and brought him with us from Florida to Virginia but I still can not find a place for him and am scared that if it comes to finding shelter for my kids or keeping a dog I have to make sure my kids are first.He loves to play- good with babies and young children- but older teens and adults he does jump up and plays a little rough- if he has a yard to run and burn some of that energy or is able to go on long walks than he is a great dog- but being that I am staying with family and their place does not accept dogs I am hiding him and he must stay in a cage at all times- and the place I'm moving into I can not bring him- I do not want to bring him to a shelter when I know they will end up killing him- (Less)

    Papa came to SABR from the shelter, who in turn had picked him up from a very bad situation involving a chain around his neck and starvation. The life he'd lived had not been a good one and it has apparently left lasting effects on him. He is such a loving and wonderful dog. He bonds very strongly with his caretaker, a little too strongly in fact. He feels the need to guard his caretaker from any preceived threat, which means he is going to need a home without any kids and probably without any other animals too. His foster mom is absolutely in love with him and wishes she could keep him without having to give up fostering. She lovingly ... (Read More)calls him Creature, after the dog from one of her favorite shows, Pit Bulls and Parolees. He cuddles in her lap each night and is very good with basic obedience. He is crate trained and house trained, and is very grateful to be out of the weather and inside to enjoy household comforts. (Less)

She has a shy personality and needs an owner who will be patient with her and allow her to come around on her own. She prefers women and is very unsure of men, but will come around if given time. For that reason, she really needs a home with a woman there, so that she will feel comfortable. She is good with other medium/large dogs, but is a bit too interested in cats. She has moderate energy and enjoys daily walks and some exercise, but also enjoys just lounging around and napping while watching ... (Read More)tv.

I am UTD on shots/monthly preventatives and have already been crate-trained and housetrained. Currently, I am working on my basic obedience and doing very well.

    Got a place in your heart for a sweetheart like me who loves nothing more than to hang out with her favorite people? I love to cuddle and soak up attention. I would love to find a home with a fenced-in yard so I can play ball with you to our heart's content. I'm great at bringing my ball back and dropping it so you can throw it again and again. Don't worry, I won't keep you out all day or cause injury to your arm because of overuse%BD'%BD|I tire out quickly enough and then am ready to go back in and cuddle up some more. My foster peeps say I have just enough energy to be fun, but not enough to drive anyone crazy trying to keep me ... (Read More)exercised. I'm what you'd call medium to low energy. I get along with most everyone, though I prefer my doggy friends to have the same energy level I have and not too much more. Puppy energy is a bit much for me. I love children of all ages and have never met a stranger; everyone is a potential belly-rubber in my book! Cat-free homes are definitely preferred as they are a bit too much fun to chase and bark at. For some reason, the kitties just don't appreciate that too much.

    Bonjourno to my future family! My name is Sophia Bella and I'm looking for my fairy tale to come true! You are so going to love me. I am a sweet girl, a loving girl, and a girl who has enough wisdom to know how to be the best kind of friend. I am only about 8 years old. I come with all the goods: housetrained, crate trained, good with other dogs and even most likely cats! I am deaf, but I am awesome at understanding hand signals. The rescue that took me out of the shelter made sure to have all my medical needs taken care of. I now have sparkling clean teeth, had some tumors removed, and have been spayed! I love to go for walks, but I'm at ... (Read More)that stage in life where snuggling up to my person afterward is a great joy and pleasure. And we can even stay inside and get lazy on those cold, rainy days. I am a good copilot in the car, and my only goal is to enjoy the world as it comes. We can go far together, you and I, as we live life to the fullest! You can read more about me on my very own Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/SophiaBellaAFairyTale (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.

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. American Pit Bull Terriers are very similar, and some argue identical, to Staffordshire Bull Terriers.
