Pete's Story...
My name is Pete, and I love everybody! And my red blanket! And my Nylabones! I am between 18 mos. and 2 yrs old, 60 lbs. of muscle, house trained, crate trained, good on a leash, neutered, tattooed, microchipped, current on vaccinations. Don’t be fooled by my scary pit bull face. I’m just a very handsome goofball who hogs the bed and snores just a little. I’m athletic, but not hyper, and am a good sleeper. I’m friendly to cats, other dogs, and kids. I used to jump up on visitors, but have improved dramatically. I occasionally must be reminded because I’m so happy happy HAPPY to see them!

I am intensely loyal and affectionate, a TERRIFIC watch dog, but not an attack dog! When I’m not napping or playing with my buddy Jack the Pyrenees, I follow Foster Mom around, gazing at her adoringly. I’m very smart, and so eager to please! I sit politely and wait for my dinner dish to be placed on the floor, and I know “sit” and “stay.” I should of course have a fenced yard so I can show off how fast I can streak across the grass.

I was adopted in May by a man who saw at once that I was not a good fit for an elderly stroke victim on a walker. Foster Mom helped him find a calm senior dog, and now I live with her, waiting for a permanent home. She loves me sooo much, but already has 3 special needs dogs, 2 of whom are big boys. Her 3rd dog is Hopsey, a senior shepard mix missing a front leg. She is the boss of everybody, especially me. If she thinks Jack & I are playing too rough in the house, she barks at me sternly and I obey at once!

Please contact Foster Mom if you think I may be your guy, ctaite@dcso.nashville.org, I am so easy to love, and this is my chance!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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