Oakley's Story...
**Courtesy Listing: Oakley Needs a Very Special Person**

MomsVa is hoping to help Oakley find a special owner who can help her with some behaviors that make her unsuitable for her current home. She is 2 years old and has been with her current family since she was 5 weeks old after they found her through a listing on CraigsList. She is spayed and current on all vaccinations.

In her current home, her mom says that she will sleep and sunbathe with the other dogs. She allows the other dogs to clean her and even growl a bit on occasion and there are no issues.
However, if the other dogs become agitated (barking or nervous/cowering), her mom writes that they have to “grab [Oakley] and control her.” Her mom goes on to say “we are now dealing with a pregnancy in our home and the stress of keeping all the dogs safe is too much” and “we need to find a home for her within the next 6 months.”

Oakley needs a home with an experienced dog owner or rescue group who understands what needs to be done to identify, manage and/or resolve her issues. Her owner had contacted several other rescues but none have been able to offer Oakley a space.

If you would like to help Oakley, please go to to submit an adoption questionnaire to MomsVA.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Richmond 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 Richmond 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 breeders who help with American Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Richmond paves the way for another one to be saved.
