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)

She knows sit, but that's about it. She can be the sweetest dog, but needs someone who is familiar with pits ... (Read More)and has the time to train her. She needs a dominant personality owner and I would prefer no kids or other animals. if she isn't found a new home she will be put down. I believe she is pure bread. (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.

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. 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.
