Italia is a sweet soul that needs a quiet household to relax and collect her thoughts in. Country life seems to suit her, and she would be glad to share an evening with you relaxing on the porch and just listening to the birds. Italia is very timid and does take a little while to warm up to you. We don't know everything that happened in her past, but her personality gives us clues about what might have been done to her before she came to rescue, and it’s a past we don’t want to think about. We do know that Italia was dumped at the shelter while she was extremely pregnant. Within just a few weeks, she gave birth to 11 puppies! All of her puppies have found their forever home, but Italia is still waiting. Italia is extremely gentle and would do fine in a home with children. She gets along great with other dogs, and a happy and confident doggy friend would do wonders for her.

About Virginia Paws for Pits

About Our Rescue Group...

VPFP is on a mission to educate the public on the misconceptions that go hand in hand with "pit bulls" we strive to match families with the perfect dog for their lifestyle and activity level to ensure that the adoption is a success for all involved. Pit bulls and mixes account for 58% of dogs in shelters and nearly 2800 are killed every day in the united states. We promote spaying and neutering in the community and encourage our adopters to use their dogs as ambassadors for this misunderstood class of dogs, by going out into the community and making a difference.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption fees vary from $50-$250 depending on the age of the animal, the amount of care provided, and the duration of their time in our rescue program. You can apply online via our website and we will be in touch with you in 48-72 hours. We do a reference check with your vet to make sure all animals in the home are current on vaccinations and have been spayed/neutered. We verify with landlords that the applicant can have a pet and there are no size or breed restrictions and finally we conduct a home inspection. Once approved there is an additional contract to sign stating that the adopter is taking over responsibility of the dog and that if at ANY time he/she is unable to care for the dog they must be returned to VPFP with ample notification to our board members.
