Breeds: Pit Bull Terrier
There are just some very special fosters in TN that we work with and when they saw Bianca Bean listed at Bartlett Animal Shelter they knew they had to get her out. She was picked up as a stray and at only 2 months old she had been shot at, she has a scar on her right hip/upper leg. This didn’t keep her down, Bianca is a very high energy puppy.
Of course being a stray, she was underweight and her fosters are working to get some meat on her bones. Her fosters have other dogs and she is friendly with all of them. She does play a bit rough and sometimes they separate her from the smaller puppy they have. She is a bit of a bully when she plays, so being adopted to a home with a larger dog to help keep her in her place would be best. Dogs of the same size or smaller might be pushed around by her.
She does go into her crate willingly. She sometimes even goes in when the door is just left open to rest. She doesn’t typically bark when crated, when she does she will settle quickly. She will sleep all night in her crate with no issues.
She is mostly house trained, being a puppy accidents do happen. She sleeps all night with no accidents in her crate.
She is typically only alone a few hours at a time when her fosters go out to run errands. She would love a family who will be home often with her or will consider doggie day care if they are gone long hours.
She hasn’t been much of a chewer or destroyer of things that has been observed, but her fosters don’t typically leave her out unattended either. She shares toys, she doesn’t really care when you take away a toy or another dog takes it away. She just walks away and goes to look for something else to do. She will play with them when available.
Bianca Bean is going to be a great new addition to any family who has time. She has not lived with small kids only teens.
Her fosters call her a feisty survivor.

ATTENTION PUPPY ADOPTERS: You will be required to attend training/behavior classes with your new dog unless you are experienced dog owners and your adoption coordinator is comfortable with your experience. This requirement is for the benefit of you and your puppy so if you experience behavior issues you have a point of contact.
PLEASE - Think long and hard before adopting a puppy - consider the lifestyle change this puppy will come with - he cannot be crated for more than 3-4 hours at a time until he’s older, puppy proofing your home will be necessary, puppies scratch and nip so if you have small children, can they handle this?? Training will be so important in this puppy’s life, do you have the time??
Please consider purchasing this book before adopting. Perfect Puppy in 7 Days - How to Start Your Puppy Off Right, Sophia Yin, DVM - it is an amazing book that we recommend very highly and have had amazing feedback on.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION -
Paws New England is a foster-based rescue - our dogs reside in various locations throughout the south and New England.
Adoption donations cover pre-adoption vet costs (including vaccinations, spay/neuter when age appropriate, and heartworm testing/treatment when necessary), a microchip, and transportation to New England if necessary.
Donations for our young, healthy puppies and dogs support their fellow canines of advanced age or suffering from injuries and abuse whose donations are reduced but whose veterinary costs are typically much higher. We appreciate your understanding that your newly adopted dog will help others in need.
