Lucille's Story...
Welcome little Lucille! This precious pocket pitty weighs about 35lbs and is probably around 3 years old. She has so much love for her humans and just wants to melt into them when they give her pets and attention. Lucille has finished her heartworm treatment and can finally be a dog again!

When meeting new people, Lucille just walks right up, expecting to be the center of attention! She isn’t a big licker, but if you let her, she’ll give out some kisses :) Her overall demeanor is extremely mellow. Spurts of energy will shine through occasionally (especially when Foster Mom comes home after being in class!), but other than that, she’s just a bump on a log, who occasionally will chew on a toy – her favorites are Nylabones & stuffed toys. Short walks and some mini play sessions are all it takes to satisfy Lucille’s exercise needs. Her favorite past time is rolling on her back, be it in the grass, the middle of the street, or the rug! She just wants a free back scratch!

Structured introductions are always a good idea and Lucille tends to do fine with pups outside when on a leash. There is absolutely no hesitation as she struts her stuff and walks right up to them. Upon first introductions, she doesn’t seem particularly interested, but her habit of being an ‘in-your-face’ dog when she gets to roam freely, is not always welcome. She would probably do best as an only dog because of this. If she is going to live in a home with other dogs, it’s important that she is properly introduced and monitored until she fully settles in. Once settled, she’s just a love bug! Cats do not reside in Lucille’s current home, so we aren’t sure how she would do with them. But children are certainly a friend of Lucille’s as all she wants is love :)

Lucille is basically housebroken; if she is left for more than 6 hours at a time, she may have an accident. But in the presence of her Foster Mom, there have been no issues at all! Her crate is not a favorite spot but she does fine with the run of the house (other than the pottying if left alone for more than 6 hours). We don’t think she’d do well with cats based on her overly excited pull when seeing them on walks. Her affection outweighs her minor flaws and she’s mastered the “Why’d you stop petting me?” look like no other… being curled up and smushed between pillows is where she prefers to spend her time if she isn’t being showered with pets and attention already.

Since her heartworm treatment, Lucille has really started coming out of her shell. She does this funny thing where she pulls toys out of the toy basket, then hoards them in her crate. It’s like she’s hiding them from…someone? She also gets super excited when it’s time for a walk and she’ll do some mad hops at the door to hurry you up!

Love and affection are two things you will not fall short of with this cutie! If you’re looking for a dog who will have unconditional love for you and just love on you as much as you love on her, Lucille is your lady! Come and meet her and you’ll understand what I mean!

We require a home visit for all of our adoptions. Because of this, we only adopt to homes within 30 minutes of Athens, GA. Please visit our website for more info.(

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lucille, a Athens 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 Athens, or seeking a Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Athens.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Athens 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 Athens 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 Athens paves the way for another one to be saved.
