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 is now ready for preapproval! He and his siblings will all be spayed and neutered by mid-October and will be ready to go home soon afterwards. Once approved, a hold fee of $100 is required and will be applied to the full adoption fee of $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!
