Facts about Porkchop Snugglemuffins

  • Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Unknown
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 60522
Porkchop is an intelligent young lady. She seems to be housebroken, at least crate trained. Porkchop knows sit, and loves to play fetch. She has a tendency to demand bark if you dont throw it fast enough, but other than that she's normally quiet. Porkchop loves to play tug too, but could accidentally nip fingers as she gets very excited. We would prefer a home with older kids because of her excitable nature. It doesnt take much to tire her out though. Porkchop loves to lay in your lap, and she walks nicely on leash. Porkchop is a little nervous around other dogs. When she arrived to RACC she had numerous wounds consistent with bite marks from another dog, but nothing too significant. But being that she has had one bad experience, she is cautious around other dogs and would do best in a home as either an only dog or with a polite player/companion. Porkchop can not go home with cats.

Our Adoption Process...

Adopters are required to complete a written adoption application and meet with our adoption placement coordinator. Adoption fees cover the cost to spay/neuter, vaccinate, micro-chip and test for heart worms (dogs) and FIV/FELV (cats). Our adoption phone number is 804-646-5575. www.Richmondgov.com/animals

Those interested in adopting an animal from RAC&C must visit our shelter in person to meet and interact with the animals. Once a selection is made, the prospective adopter completes a two-page written application. The application is immediately reviewed by staff and will be approved on the spot unless the adoption staff feels this adopter and animal are not a suitable match. If the adoption is approved, the adopter pays the pet's adoption fee. If the animal is spayed/neutered and current on vaccinations, the pet may go home on the spot! If the animal is not spayed, our staff makes arrangements for the pet to be spayed/neutered at a local vet clinic. The adopter picks the pet up at RAC&C after the pet's surgery. Appointments are made quickly, and the adopter usually has the pet within a few days.
Adoption fee - $100
Cats and kittens may be adopted two for the price of one!
Pets age 9 years and older may be adopted for no fee with an approved application.

All City of Richmond, VA residents are legally required to purchase an annual $10.00 license for each pet owned.
