History: I was a stray mama living on the streets of Memphis with my babies. We were brought off the streets by these amazing people. I hung out there for a little bit before coming to NE. I went to a training facility so I could work on my manners of pulling and jumping. Then one day this lady came and picked me up and I have been living with her, her husband and her 11 year old son.

Personality traits: I am a loving goofball who never met a belly rub I didn’t like. I am the best cuddler but I also have a playful side and can act like a puppy.

Likes: Naps on my favorite humans lap, my hedgehog toys, zoomies, and visiting pet stores so I can pick out my favorite treats (which is everything), and lastly I love cleaning up the peanut butter off the spatula after my foster dad makes his lunch.

Dislikes: I am not a fan of being left home alone but I am working on that. I was on my own for so long and just love being with people.

Quirks: I have a bit of separation anxiety that I briefly mentioned above. I need a patient owner to help me be comfortable by myself. Oh yeah, I like to mouth play with my foster moms arm. She doesn’t find that fun so she gives me a toy so I can play with that instead.

Housetrained/Crate Trained: “Inside” is still new to me. I will go potty outside when given the opportunity, but I never had to ask to go outside before, so I need help developing that ability. My foster mom is teaching me to ring a bell to go out and I rarely have an accident. I don’t mess in my crate. Crates are not my favorite. I’m OK when someone is home but when my people leave I get upset.

Training: I am currently working on a few things. I am very strong and may pull here and there during my walk. I am walked on an easy walk harness which helps a lot. My foster mom will stop walking until I ease up. I also like to jump but I am sooo much better at controlling myself. Sometimes I can’t help it, I just like being loved up. I am learning that I need to sit to get some loving rather than jumping. I know how to sit and I am learning how to lay down. I am very smart and pick things up quickly.

Other dogs - Are a definite yes BUT I play rough and need an occasional time out. I get a bit worked up and I have a hard time calming down. I would also be great on my own - someone active would be amazing as I am a strong girl and won’t be happy crated all the time. I am a great ambassador for my breed.

If you have another dog in your home, pittie experience would be a must - as mentioned, I can play until the day is over but will need someone to recognize when it’s time to stop.

Children: Due to me being strong and my exuberance, I would do best in a home with older, dog savvy children or a home with adults only. I could easily inadvertently topple over smaller kids.

Health history: I am up to date on all vaccinations, and I am healthy. I am spayed and microchipped too.

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.
