My story

Meet Arielle!

This lovely lady came to Pitties and Purrs in October of 2020. She has had quite the journey thus far— Ending up as a stray at a shelter down south, extremely pregnant with a severe case of heartworm. Her heartworm treatment was completed successfully during her time with P&P although she does have an occasional cough, she is otherwise doing great!

Arielle can be shy upon first meet, but is incredibly gentle and sweet. She is a couch potato and will shower the people she loves in kisses. This sweet girl is the definition of low maintenance and would love to be your one and only, and have all of your undivided attention.

You must be over 21 and a home owner to adopt me. Please visit to fill out an application. For further information contact

Additional adoption info

Our comprehensive adoption process includes a pre-adoption application, background checks (including vet check), home visit and adoption contract. You must be 21 or over to adopt from us. Unfortunately we are unable to adopt our Pitties or Pitty mixes to adopters living in Prince George's County, MD, due to the BSL in place there. Please remember to check your home owners policy to make sure that your insurance company will cover you for bully breeds.

Our adoption fee is based on the age and health of the animal.

More about this rescue

Pitties and Purrs is a small 501c3, foster-based rescue in Baltimore, MD. Our rescue dogs come from all over the country in order to be rehabilitated and to ultimately find their forever homes. Because we are a foster-based rescue, we completely rely on our incredible volunteers to care for & to temporarily welcome the dogs and cats into their homes to prepare them for adoption.
