Leia's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Leia's Story...
This sweet 6 month old princess was found roaming the streets of Miami. When Leia was brought in to Miami-Dade Animal (high kill) shelter she was severely emaciated, anemic, full of worms, marked with scars and sick with kennel cough. No one knows exactly what she’s been through or how she survived. Leia weighed only 16 pounds when we rescued her. Nearly all her bones were visible and she was very weak.
For the past month we have been nursing Leia back to health, and we are happy to say she has nearly doubled her body weight!
Leia gets along great with most dogs and prefers a cat-free home. She loves to sit by your feet, on your lap or anywhere close to you. Consistent meals and toys are new and wonderful to her, and she enjoys laying out in the grass working on her tan. She is learning commands well and is (expectedly) very food driven.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Leia, a Coral Springs American Pit Bull Terrier/Pharaoh Hound dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Pit Bull Terrier/Pharaoh Hound for sale in Coral Springs, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier/Pharaoh Hound dog from a breeder in Coral Springs.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Coral Springs already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Coral Springs breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even American Pit Bull Terrier/Pharaoh Hound breeders who help with American Pit Bull Terrier/Pharaoh Hound rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Coral Springs paves the way for another one to be saved.
