Facts about Rome
Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier Mix
already neutered and housetrained.
I am already neutered and housetrained.
Rome is a very gentle and sweet boy. He is about 8 months old. He enjoys cuddling in someone's lap and having belly rubs. Rome needs some encouragement on a leash, but loves treats! Rome does great with his kennel mate Greece and yard mate Italy. He was tested with other dogs as well and did great. He has not shown any interest in cats. Rome is ready to have an adventure of a lifetime by finding his forever home. Will that be with you?
Update: Rome went to our prison program where he received around the clock training and now does well on a leash and knows his basic commands! He is houstrained and very calm/non-destructive in the home. He currently is in foster care so he didn't have to come back to the shelter. His foster parents report that he is well behaved and doing great! Primary Color: Tan Age: 0yrs 10mths 3wks
The Paris Animal Welfare Society (P.A.W.S.) is a private 501(c)3 organization, established in 1992, which runs an animal shelter located in beautiful Paris, Kentucky. As a private organization, we are solely dependent on private donations and community support.
Our mission is to save and protect homeless animals through responsible adoptions, to provide humane care for all animals entrusted to us, to advocate for animal welfare, and to enhance the human-animal bond by promoting healthy relationships between pets and people in our community.
P.A.W.S. serves mainly Bourbon County, taking in stray animals and those relinquished by their owners. We are open admission, which means we will never turn away an animal in need regardless of age, health, or behavior issues. Despite being a small organization, we took in almost 1700 animals in 2015. At P.A.W.S., we do not euthanize healthy adoptable animals.
