Mya or "Mya Moo" is our resident "nerd"! She loves to interact with people and work on her manners...especially when cheese is involved! String cheese is her favorite but she will accept American slices when foster mom fails to stock appropriate quantities of string cheese. Being a nerd, Mya prefers to avoid athletic activities and sticks more to short intimate walks or evenings at homes working on puzzles. She is a Master Puzzle solver!! Movie nights spent on the couch are also on Mya's top ten list. Comedy, romance, animation and documentaries are among her favorite genres. She loves to snuggle, and show you just how much she loves you by showering you with kisses! She eats a special food that is easy to absorb, smells like roast beef and keeps her breath fresh too. Mya is a home body who loves monotony. I think she keeps a secret calendar! Lol She finds comfort in routine and really bonds with humans to point where we actually hold conversations. She isn't shy about voicing her opinion but can be easily swayed when pointed in the right direction. Mya is crate trained and she is happy to nap or chew on her nylabone while I'm at work and during the night. She would much rather snuggle in a bed but the resident, spoiled brat Sam doesn't like to share his bed. If you want a dog that loves to spend time with you but also appreciates her alone time, Mya wants to meet you!!

Our adoption fee is $175.

*Puppies too young for rabies or final boosters will need to be vaccinated post-adoption at the expense of the adopter.
*All adopters must be at least 21 years of age.
*We will only place dogs with indoor ONLY homes.
*A home visit and application are required prior to adoption.
*We do check home owners insurance or with your landlord to ensure pit bull type dogs are accepted in your home or apartment.

IMPORTANT: Many homeowner's insurance companies have breed blacklists or "dangerous dogs" lists which include, but are not limited to, pit bulls, American Pit Bull Terriers, American Staffordshire Terriers, Staffordshire Bull Terriers, Rottweilers, Dobermans, Akitas, American Bulldogs, Chows and wolf-hybrids and WILL NOT insure you if they reside in your home or may cancel your insurance if you add a dog of these breeds to your home. If you rent, landlords may also have these same breed restrictions due to their insurance policies. Please check your homeowner's insurance policy or ask your landlord regarding breed discrimination before submitting this application to adopt a pit bull type dog.
