Nikita is a 10-11 year old spayed female white and black-brindle pit bull. Nikita came to the shelter through no fault of her own. Her owners were no longer capable of caring for her so Nikita has found herself in our care. Nikita still has a lot of energy and will need a bit of extra training to help curb all that excited energy. Nikita is HEARTWORM POSITIVE and currently being treated for it. She needs to be kept as calm as possible and limit the amount of exercise so the heartworms don't spread to the rest of her body. She also must be kept INDOORS because of the heartworms. She walks well on a leash when she does go out. Nikita lived with smalls dogs but has not tested well at the shelter with other dogs. We recommend that she goes to a home without dogs or cats. She would do fine in a home with older children(8+) since she could accidentally hurt a small child when she gets excited.

Nikita would like to spend her golden years in a home and being loved; not at the shelter where she is extremely stressed out.
If your family sounds right for Nikita please come by the shelter or contact the shelter at 804-520-9397.
