Rescue Me ID: 16-11-17-00313Petey (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered 

    Petey just arrived at the shelter a couple days ago and he's already won everyone's heart. He's young - probably around 1 - and is such a sweet loving guy. He's around 40 pounds. He knows sit but he needs work on all his other skills. Really all he wants to do is love and be loved. He will most likely be a gem with kids but we've not had the opportunity to find out yet. Cats are also an unknown. I dare you to deny that face anything.

Rescue Me ID: 16-11-11-00166Princess (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adult Women Only 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Vaccinations Current 

    Princess is a gorgeous brindle lab pit mix. This sweet girl has been at the shelter for 2 years because folks can't see past her pit bull side. For the lucky lady who can look at this girl for her insides, she will find a happy, eager to please, enthusiastic companion who wants nothing more than to love and be loved. Her favorite game is chasing the ball. She knows her basic commands but needs work on the leash - it's hard not to pull when you've been in a kennel for 2 years! She will warm up to men but takes her time. She's selective about other dogs.

She is fine with cats as long as they don't run or scratch her that is why I cannot keep her. Plz adopt her as I cannot. Email me as my phone is out of min. Ty josh

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

    Hello! We've decided that we have to part ways with our sweet girl Stella. We plan on doing everything we can to find her a great new home. With the nature of our jobs, the lack of a yard, our small apartment, and the arrival of our baby boy in August, we don't see how we can give Stella the home she deserves. Stella has dog aggression, and we don't know how she is with kids, but she's an absolute sweetheart around adults. Her hobbies include snuggling, cheese, and tennis balls. If you happen to know anyone looking for a spunky dog who needs to be an only child, we'd appreciate you passing Stella's information on. Here is the Facebook page ...

Rescue Me ID: 15-01-28-00162sheila (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Adult Women Only 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Needs Vaccinations, Fearful/Anxious 

    Sheila was my son's dog. She is about 3 years old, weighs about 50 pounds, and has been spayed. My son moved out of state and couldn't take her with him. We started trying to find her a home 2 months before he moved but have not been able to find her a home. I had no choice but to take her along with my 3 smaller dogs. It just isn't working out very well. My 9 pound chi-pin is terrified of her and stays in his crate in another room almost all the time. My oldest dog just stays out of her way and Ginger, the youngest of my dogs has been Sheila's playmate from the time she was big enough to play until recently. Sheila has recently been giving ... (Read More)a little growl and lunging at Ginger, her tail between her legs and her head low and I don't know why it is happening. Her behaviour is totally different than it used to be around my dogs. I don't' understand it and it makes me nervous. I am sure she can sense my feelings and that isn't making things any better. I love Sheila with all my heart, I have been around her since she was 3 months old but I can't keep her,I am waiting a little while longer in hopes that she can get a second chance with someone that understands the breed better than I do and can work with her. Where I live there are very few options, we don't have a shelter and the no kill shelter will only take animals from kill shelters or strays. I only have one option if I can't find someone that will take a chance with her and I don't want to even think about it but if her behaviour towards the other dogs gets worse I will be forced to have her put down. Please, I know there is someone out there that she would be the perfect companion for, I only hope I can hold out long enough to find them. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Pit Bull in West Virginia
    Pit Bull Dogs can make good pets in West 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.
