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

    A truly lovable snuggler this guy is :))) The first time I met him he immediately ran up to me wiggle butt all the way. He had originally been saved from NYC 2 minutes before being euthanized. After some time of settling in we learned he couldn't get along with the senior pit in the home. Now with his second new owner they have found the same situation after living with his new owners of about 2 months. The problem is although he gets along with kids, other dogs & cats in time he seems to not like sharing his turf. My self and his current owner know this could be corrected with an experienced dog owner to show him who's boss. we are asking a ...

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Sam is, for the most part fine and is easy to get along with. However, there are times he growls and gets dominant. He has been hand fed, because he was having food aggression. This is my son's dog, but after Sam growling at him, he fears Sam and the well being of his young daughter, so he has been staying with us. We have been working with him and he has seemed to be better, but still has moments where his dominance kicks in. I am a dog lover and it breaks my heart, because I love him so much, but he needs the patience and attention of someone that wants to somewhat rehabilitate him. We aren't young adults anymore and we have two other ... (Read More)dogs, as well that are reaching old age. I want him to get the attention and understanding that he needs to be in a great home, with people that will love him and give him a good life. We have contacted shelters and also asking around for someone to adopt him, but the shelter will euthanize him, due to his issues and it isn't fair, knowing for the most part, he is a good and lovable dog!

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)

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

    I am Moo. I am a Medium Black & White Young Male Pit Bull. I am 2 years old (DOB 1/31/2013). I am also called Moo Moo or Mighty Moo. I know my name VERY well. My mother was found tied to a fence pregnant and taken to the shelter where she gave birth 10 days later. She shoved me out several times, abandoning me totally when I was around three weeks old. I was hand raised from this point on by my fosters. Because of this I had a difficult time the first three months of my life and became very spoiled. I am a complete mamma's boy. I love to snuggle. My foster mama says I eat like horse but I run and play like a gazelle. I am pure muscle! I ... (Read More)know the commands 'Sit' and 'Shake'. I have spent my whole life in foster on a farm. I have never been to the city so I am unfamiliar with traffic. I am high energy and I do play hard. I have food guarding issues so I'm fed in the same proximity as all the other dogs in my foster home but my foster mom stays close by and stands guard, constantly reminding me of my manners. I live with some cats, too, and do well with them but I'm never leave unattended with them because I play way to rough if they show any sass! I enjoy running and playing. I'm also totally house broken and wonderfully crate trained but I've never been in a kennel so it's not known how I would do in one. I was recently introduced to a little girl who was 3 years old and I loved her but they were afraid that in my exuberance I might knock her over! SWVAL recommends I not be adopted into a home with small children or the elderly and also that, due to my alpha tendencies, I be the only dog in the home.

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.

lnteresting Pit Bull Trivia Low-Cost West Virginia Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Some people believe that Pit Bulls are identical to what Bulldogs were in the past. Teddy Roosevelt owned Pit Bulls. 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.
