Story
This is Darby, She is as much a part of our family as our children. We found her after she had been hit by a car. Her pelvis was broken, she was emaciated, and she had just had puppies. We looked for days for them and never found them. She is the most loving, calm, wonderful soul. She is almost a truly perfect dog. I am forced to rehome her because she is extreemly protective of us and went into our neighbors yard and bit thier 7 year old lab. They have involved the police and we are being forced to either euthanize her or find her a new home. I cant even explain how painful this is, she is bonded to me like a child as I spent a lot of time with her durring her healing. We are guessing she is about 3 to 5 years old. She has escape artist tendencies so a solid fence is a must. She also has had sever trauma on a leash at some point as she is petrified them along with car rides. She prefers women, but has never shown aggression with a man either. There's so much more but I'm out of words

Story
We have had Kash since he was 3 months old. We have the papers and he is registered UKC pure breed American Pitbull Terrier. We would like him to go to a loving home. He is an inside dog. He has always been well taken care of. He learned to be potty trained at a young age and does very well. He is playful and very attentive. Doesn’t bite and loves kids. We don’t have enough time to give him attention and we do not have a fence.

These pups are in Athens, Alabama too!
