Looking to rehome this sweet girl Mia. She is a 2 year old spayed pit bull. Microchipped, up-to-date on vaccines, monthly preventative flee/tick/heart worm treatment, recent wellness exam by local veterinarian. She is timid and takes time for her to trust people.

Story
I adopted Rocky and Creed from my neighbor when he had to move before they were a year old. Lived there for four years and had a very large fenced private back yard. In past year, I’ve had to move and don’t have the finances to install a large fence. Have a much smaller yard and they can’t run like they need to. They are great around my four kids and neighbors kids but do get jittery around other dogs they don’t know. They are crate broke as that’s where they come in and sleep at night and part of day while at work. They are very smart and energetic, they need to have a large fenced yard or farm area.
