Olive's Story...
In her shiny black coat with white chrome, Olive turns heads wherever she goes. Four-year-old Olive is very smart and learns quickly. She is anxious to please, and looks to her person for guidance. When she feels safe Olive will astound you with her stellar manners. She will "sit," "down," "come," "wait," and walk on loose leash.

Olive is fearful of strangers and needs to meet new people slowly and on her terms. She is initially hesitant and cautious, and takes time to let a new person into her world. She’s in enrolled in Outbound Hounds Pit and Pals C.L.A.S.S. where she has met many new people and is becoming more comfortable every day. With the help of shelter volunteers, her circle of friends and admirers has grown considerably over the past few months. Olive is now showing her trust and faith in people as she enjoys belly rubs, cheese sticks, and pleasant walks once she’s acclimated.

The right home will include owners who follow up with positive reinforcement training, structure, and gentle support. Her adoption includes Take My Lead training, which provides free private training sessions to assist in the transition from shelter to home life. Olive will bond strongly to people who are committed to her. She is the kind of dog that would be happy to lie around the house all day, but she can get very excited and rambunctious when she greets her favorite people. Consequently, a home without young children would be best for her. A fenced yard would be nice, but isn't entirely necessary. Olive doesn't need a lot of exercise and enjoys her leashed walks with her friends. First thing on her list of must-haves is a couch to cuddle on.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Olive, a Cranston 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 Cranston, or seeking a Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Cranston.

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