Story
Meet Kira, a very cuddly 5-year-old pit bull and lab mix looking for a new family to love near Federal Heights, CO. She is a kisser who loves belly rubs, scritches, walks, playing ball, and cuddle time. One of her favorite things is drinking out of the bathtub faucet! Kira is VERY cuddly and will always want to be by your side. Kira is healthy, up-to-date with her vaccines, and spayed. She does have some food allergies, so she eats Hydrolyzed (HR) food with some sprinkled treats. She would be happiest as a one-and-only pet so she would get all the cuddles to herself. Although Kira is in CO, she is willing to travel for love. Love knows no distance. Do you have room in your home and heart for this snuggly girl?

Story
Are you looking for a loving and loyal companion? Meet Luna, the two-year-old Pit Bull Terrier mix who is looking for her new forever home in Clovis, CA! Luna is a sweet girl who loves to cuddle, play with her toys, and go for walks. She weighs about 40 pounds and would thrive as the only dog in the home. Luna had a rough start to her life and was hit by a truck when she was just a year and a half old. As a result, she can be wary of new people and animals, but she has been through some training to help her overcome her fears. She would do best in a quiet home with a patient and understanding family who can help her build trust and confidence. Despite her difficult past, Luna has a lot of love to give and is a funny, loving, and sweet girl who would make an amazing companion. She loves to play with rawhide bones, squeaky toys, and balls, and she will be your loyal and devoted friend for life. So if you're looking for a loving companion to share your life with, please consider adopting Luna today!
