My name is Darwin, aka Darwin Lovebug. I am an extremely GENTLE, massively sensitive, and personable 4 year old  Staffordshire Terrier/Pit Bull mix. I weigh about 70lbs, but I'm essentially just an oversized lap dog (no, really- I am). I am always curious about what you are doing- so if you hear someone tip-toeing behind you, that would be me, Mr. Curious!  I know basic commands, and I am housetrained- I do not like to be crated, but because I'm such a good boy, my foster mom trusts me alone while she's at work all day. Speaking of home life, I'm actually agreeable to smaller spaces, so apartment living is fine with me because I don't even like to go on walks.  I'm just happiest and most content to be inside of a home all day, curled up with my favorite stuffed animal that I carry around for comfort and entertainment- I don't want much activity or have a desire to be outdoors as I am super sensitive to scary noises and activity (I think this is from being chained up in someone's backyard in my previous life before I was rescued).
I have been living with the same foster since June 2013, and little by little I have become less anxious around other dogs. I have been through socialization camp, which has boosted my confidence quite a bit, but I'm still scared of most other dogs when I am outdoors on leash (again, because I was always a backyard dog, I just never learned how to walk on leash calmly or how to meet other dogs). I guess you can say I am dog selective- a dominant, loud or pushy kind of dog will only upset me, but if you are a fun, calm dog, you and I can be best friends- just like my foster sister Mynka and I are (she's the white pit bull in the pictures- she is my favorite and yes, she's also looking for a forever home). I also have no toy or food aggression issues- I am not jealous and do not have any issues sharing, which is also great for any families out there with kids (which I do love as well, someone fun to follow around, take naps with, and watch tv next to at night).
All I want is a home to call my own, and a family who understands that I am just a sensitive but extremely loving dog whose confidence comes from the security and patience you give me.
I am neutered, microchipped and up to date on all of my shots. If you are interested in fostering or adopting me, let's set up a meet and greet! Please contact my foster mom Rachel  at:

About Angel City Pit Bulls

About Our Rescue Group...

Mission: Angel City Pit Bulls is creating a better future for pit bulls by promoting their positive image as loving family companions through education, public advocacy, adoptions and responsible pet ownership.

Goal: To reduce the number of pit bull terrier type dogs in animal shelters by increasing adoptions, providing community education to increase owner retention, and participating in targeted spay/neuter programs. As a member of the NKLA Coalition, it is our goal to be an integral part of making Los Angeles no-kill.

History: Angel City Pit Bulls is a 501c3 non-profit organization founded in 2010 to address the problem of overpopulation and high euthanasia rate of pit bull terrier type dogs in Los Angeles area shelters. ACPB continues to evolve through the efforts of dedicated pit bull owners, educators, rescuers, and supporters working together to respond to the challenges facing pit bulls in our community.

Our Adoption Process...

Angel City Pit Bulls has dogs that fall under the generic term 'pit bull' who demonstrate stable, fun, people-oriented, outgoing personalities- making them fantastic family dogs. We have a wide range of energy levels, so whether you are looking for a running partner or a potential “therapy dog”, we will typically have a dog that will fit the bill.

Our goal is to provide adopters with the best possible adopter-dog match and we will work with you to find a dog that is right for your situation. Most of the ACPB dogs live in multi-dog foster homes, and enjoy the company of other well-matched dogs and some even with well-matched cats. We are happy to assist with family pet introductions.

To get started, we will ask that you to fill out a brief questionnaire and we'll set up a meet and greet for the dog(s) you are interested in. When you are ready to move forward with the adoption, we will arrange a home delivery to help you get settled in with the newest member of your family.

Resources, support, and education are always available, and you can expect an extensive level of knowledge and support from ACPB for the lifetime of your dog.

We ask for an adoption donation of $200 for dogs over 6 months old, and $300 for a puppy under 6 months old. This non-taxdeductible contribution assists us in continuing our mission to help more dogs in need.
