Facts about Italia

  • Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier/American Pit Bull Terrier Mix
  • Color: White - With Brown Or Chocolate
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Italia was rescued from SC just days before she gave birth to 11 puppies. All of her puppies have been adopted and she is patiently waiting her turn. Italia does great with other dogs, in fact she gets her confidence from another dog and will need to be adopted by a family with another dog. She is also great with children as she currently lives with 4 small girls. She is scared in public settings and is timid with strangers so she would do best with a home body family or someone willing to go slow and help her learn to trust new things and new people at her own pace. She is a sweet and loving dog with so much to give to her family.

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.
