Izzy's Story...
Izzy is as loving as she is unique looking!
Izzy is a happy and playful dog. She is close to overcoming her separation anxiety and has done well being left alone in a crate for limited amounts of time. Izzy would do best in a home with another easy-going confident dog. Currently Izzy is on a stable anti anxiety medication regiment, we hope in her furever home her medication can be reduced and possibly eliminated. Her doggie daycare exercise routine along with medication works wonders with her ability to self regulate and gain confidence, as we have seen her blossom with this combination!
Izzy knows her basic commands, and happily shows off ‘sit’ and ‘down’ for treats, as well as coming when called! Basic obedience classes would be recommended in order for her to reach her full potential, as she loves to learn. Izzy comes with 6 months of FREE doggie daycare at Northwest Kennels, to help her adjust to her new home while providing a sense of familiarity and routine!
Izzy is a non discriminating human lover! She is good with men, females, and dog educated kids, but new people need to go slow and let Izzy come to them. This girl loves to cuddle, play with toys, and does great with car rides. She is treat motivated and walks great on a leash!!
Izzy has a strong prey drive, while there hasn’t been a bad interaction with little dogs, we recommend a small dog/small animal free home.
Izzy will thrive in a household committed to creating a stable and consistent environment for her, while providing her with opportunities to succeed and patience while she adjusts. This lucky home will be rewarded with the loyalty and unconditional love pitties are famous for!

While Izzy is now a happy and playful dog, she is working on overcoming is her separation anxiety, and need help gaining confidence with new situations and in large public environments. To aid with her separation and social anxiety, Izzy is on a stable anti anxiety medication regiment, and will need to stay on her medication plan for now. As she grows more confident and calm in a consistent home, her medication may be reduced. Her daycare exercise routine in conjunction with medication works wonders with her ability to self regulate and gain confidence, as we have seen her blossom with this combination!

Izzy is currently in process of learning basic commands, and happily shows off ‘sit’ and ‘down’ for treats, as well as coming when called! Basic obedience classes would be recommended in order for her to reach her full potential, and Izzy loves to learn.

For now, we do not recommend Izzy for dog parks, but with more training and stability dog parks may be in her future. She plays well with dogs of all ages, but is still learning proper play etiquette and not all dogs understand this. She has come a long way but is still learning proper “dog language”. All of the dogs at Northwest Kennels daycare have been temperament assessed and proven compatible, which cannot be said for strange dogs at public parks. Northwest Kennels would be happy to give Izzy 6 months of FREE daycare, to help her adjust to her new home while providing a sense of familiarity and routine!

Izzy is a non discriminating human lover! She is good with men, females, and dog educated kids, but new people need to go slow and let Izzy come to them. This girl loves to cuddle, play with toys, and does great with car rides. She is treat motivated and walks great on a leash!!

We have seen her focus with intensity with small animals, and although she hasn’t had a negative encounter with other animals, we would recommend a small dog/small animal free home. With large dogs she may be shy at first but has not shown signs of leash aggression, and is eager to be everyone’s friend.

Izzy will thrive in a household committed to creating a stable and consistent environment for her, while providing her with opportunities to succeed and patience while she adjusts. This lucky home will be rewarded with the loyalty and unconditional love pitties are famous for!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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