Mavis is a submissive, sweet and gentle, affectionate one-year-old Pit Bull Terrier/Labrador Retriever mix. She is taller in the back end with a more bushy tail like a Lab, and she does not have the overall confirmation of a pure-bred Pit Bull. Mavis is a wonderful blend of light, playful energy, in spurts, and overall, is low to moderate energy. In the house, she is calm. Mavis weighs about 50 lbs. She is a love, and she enjoys coming over to you to say Hi, putting her head in your lap for some petting and kisses, but does not need your constant attention. Mavis is essentially a house dog who also enjoys the outdoors and the yard. She is not a dog to be matched up to an overly energetic pit bull type; she, in fact, gravitates to the smaller dogs and knows how to tone her play style down for their benefit. (This is not to say that Mavis cannot also be paired up with a dog her own size or larger; it just depends on the dog and the level of energy.)

Mavis was rescued from the South L.A. Shelter where she was going to be euthanized in spite of being a shelter favorite. No rescue would pull her, due to, she had a simple tibia fracture to her right leg. The shelter cast her leg to support it, and once Angel’s Heart saved her, straight to the Ortho Specialist she went. Lucky for Mavis, under the supervision of a top orthopedic vet, her leg healed on its own. She has now been completely cleared by that Orthopedic Specialist for adoption (documentation can be provided) and there are no impediments or restrictions.

Mavis sleeps in a large wire crate at night and is quiet. She enjoys relaxing with a thick raw hide chew. She is so potty trained (though potty reinforcement is needed in any new environment) that she goes to the farthest corner of the yard to do her business. So far, she has never had an accident in my house, however, I do avail all of the rescue dogs with proper potty opportunities. So if you are looking for a sweet and gentle, lower energy dog who is still somewhat playful, and who will be nice to all dogs, even small dogs, then Mavis is your girl!

Mavis is spayed, de-wormed, vaccinated including rabies, and micro-chipped.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mavis, a Bellflower Pit Bull Terrier/Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pit Bull Terrier/Labrador Retriever for sale in Bellflower, or seeking a Pit Bull Terrier/Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Bellflower.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Bellflower 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 Bellflower 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/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Pit Bull Terrier/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Bellflower paves the way for another one to be saved.
