Story
A coworker gave me the puppy at 6 weeks of age and she has been to a good vet since i got her. She is spayed and is up to date on her shots. She is smart and full of energy. The company I work for has added more responsibilities to my job title which put me on the road 12 hours a day. I hate that she has to stay in a kennel that long. I cant afford to bring her to doggie day care, Ree loves to play ball and does a good job bringing the ball back. She knows how to sit by just folding your arms, she loves to go for walks and is good on a leash. Ree needs more attention & a little more training and she would be a great dog. I have a large kennel & other gear to go with her. Harness, collar,leash etc

Story
Hi my name is Darwin. And yes I am a Pitbull. I am so happy you asked! Yeah yeah I know I look big and scary sometimes but I am also a beautiful flower if you can't tell. I have the utmost patience for people and new environments and absolutely love stuffed animals and soft things. I will steal you bed and your favorite couch cushion right from under you. I have been here for quite a while, since before Christmas, and although I did in fact get gifts from Santa, I would much rather do that this year with a new family and a much bigger Christmas tree. I look forward to meeting all of you.
