Well hello there! My name is Akyah and I'm what you might call a "pocket pit" because I'm just so tiny, I could fit in your pocket! Not really, but I am much smaller than some other members of my breed! I'm still a young girl so being able to play and work off some energy is important to me! I love to go for walks, but sometimes forget that you aren't as excited as I am to be outside....what I mean to say is, I might pull a little bit, so it's probably a good thing I am so small! My front feet are kind of "pigeon toed" but that doesn't bother me at all - I think it just gives me more character! So far I have done really well with the children that have come to visit me at the Muskingum County Dog Warden & Adoption Center but I have not been tested with other dogs or cats yet. If you're looking for a sweet, goofy, spunky girl, look no further!!!
