Lightning's Story...
Lightning is one of six boys among Amelia Earhart's Fighter Jets. He loves to snuggle with his people and his siblings! This sweetheart comes to you wanting to be picked up!

Lightning and his siblings were born in the shelter on 7/29/16, mere hours before we were able to rescue them and their momma Amelia Earhart. While Amelia is a pit bull, we have no idea what dad would have been...possibly a newfie or border collie, or who knows?! These puppies will do great in any home, including one with kids, cats and other dogs. Breed experience or another dog is required.

We send our weaned puppies out to their foster homes in pairs at 8 weeks old to continue proper dog etiquette and social skills on top of their foster families' guidance, structure and love. They are learning all about crate training, potty training, leash skills and basic manners, including sit. It will be on the new family to continue what we have started, as they are babies and still learning and will need time to adjust to their new family's schedule.

Lightning's adoption fee is $250 at the time of the home visit. All MVPC dogs are heart worm tested, completely vetted, spayed/neutered, microchipped, crate-trained and on a great potty training schedule.

ALL inquiries begin with a submitted adoption application, which is found on our website, www.miamivalleypitcrew.com. DO NOT USE THE PETFINDER/ADOPTAPET CONTACT/ADOPT BUTTONS--we are unable to monitor those--only submitted applications through our website will receive a response once approved. We do not adopt to individuals under the age of 25 and do not consider an electric fence a form of confinement. Because we are volunteer based and a home visit is required, we have a two hour adoption radius from Kettering, OH for our adult dogs and 75 miles for our puppies. Thank you for your understanding!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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