Facts about Polly

  • Breed: Pit Bull Terrier
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Female

Polly is a beautiful 2-year-old pit bull who came into rescue when her family moved and left her tied in the yard. She's an affectionate and sweet girl who wants to be with her family and loves snuggling with both her human and canine pals.
Polly has some house manners, is not destructive, is crate trained and house trained (with only the occasional accident) and loves to ride in the car. She does know some commands but will benefit from more basic training and leash work. She is very smart and eager to please, with excellent eye contact, and is responsive to praise and food rewards. So her training should be easy and very rewarding.
Polly is a little nervous when meeting new people, particularly men. She will growl and bark at new people including older children, but settles once she knows them. Polly gets very excited when meeting new dogs, barking and jumping at them. However she settles quickly and really loves to play and romp. She loves racing around the yard and loves all toys--her favorite toy being another dog to wrestle with.
We're looking for a home for Polly that has experience with pit bulls, perhaps one with another large dog(s), and time to help her learn the things she has missed in her early years. We do NOT recommend small children or small animals given her size and excitability. A home that is calm will be an advantage as she continues to improve her social skills.
