found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, purebred, up to date with shots, and not good with kids.
Rugby is a neutered male, FAWN and WHITE PIT BULL TERRIER. The shelter thinks Rugby was about 2 years old when he arrived on May 3, 2005.
Rugby is a great dog, sweet, all muscle, strong and very handsome. He is a pit bull terrier and a big boy at that. However, he is a good dog, walks well on leash and enjoys the play yard with big rubber squeaky toys to entertain him. If you are familiar with the breed, great! Rugby can be a great companion and buddy for someone without small children and can spend quality training and play time with a really good dog.
A volunteer went to take him out of his kennel for a walk and his HUGE head came right at me and he waited so patiently while i attached the gentle leader. Rugby walks well on leash and loves to roll in the grass. He has beautiful markings, he is not white... he's tan with splotches. Come see for yourself what a wonderful companion Rugby would make for you.
BREED HISTORY = AMERICAN PIT BULL TERRIER
Official U.K.C. Breed Standard; Revised October 21, 2004 .
Sometime during the nineteenth century, dog fanciers in England, Ireland, and Scotland began to experiment with crosses between Bulldogs and Terriers, looking for a dog that combined the gameness of the terrier with the strength and athleticism of the Bulldog. The result was a dog that embodied all of the virtues attributed to great warriors: strength, indomitable courage, and gentleness with loved ones. Immigrants brought these bull and terrier crosses to the United States. The American Pit Bull Terrier's many talents did not go unnoticed by farmers and ranchers who used their APBTs for protection, as catch dogs for semi-wild cattle and hogs, to hunt, to drive livestock, and as family companions. Today, the American Pit Bull Terrier continues to demonstrate its versatility, competing successfully in Obedience, Tracking, Agility, Protection, and Weight Pulls, as well as Conformation.
The United Kennel Club was the first registry to recognize the American Pit Bull Terrier. U.K.C. founder C. Z. Bennett assigned U.K.C. registration number 1 to his own APBT, Bennett's Ring in 1898.
