Story
We found Brutus in a trailer park after he was abandoned by his original owner. He's a young dog, but he hates being left alone and he has some behavioral issues. (gets excited and will jump on you without any warning which can be a little scary to some people) He loves chewing things. He's a great walking dog, always on high alert. He's a sweet boy, but a little slow. All he needs is someone who has enough time on their hands to train him. His groin area may need surgery that we cannot afford. He has a permanent "lipstick" and he pees in a different direction. He cannot sit properly and will lay on his butt rather than a normal sit pose like a regular dog. He cannot tolerate any wet food. Ultimately, we are already breaking the bank with our elderly dog Oakley that is nearing the end stages of her life and we would like to focus on her health during this difficult time as we are also moving in a week.

Story
His name is Tank we have had him for a couple weeks. Me and my wife rescued him on the side of the road over near Charleston Falls. We were unable to find the owner and didn’t want him to be in a shelter so we adopted him. We thought that eventually he would become less interested in our cat but that seems to not be the case. Beside his over curiosity with the cat he is a great dog that seems to know some tricks. He has shown no aggression towards people or babies but has a very very high energy level and loves to play tug of war. We have bought him a bunch of stuff which we are willing to give to the new family including a food bowl and a very heavy duty cage (he is a escape artist) along with a new Kong collar and leash. He is a great dog and we are hoping we can find a more suitable home for him.

Story
Cairo is an 8 month old pure bred pitbull. He has all of his shots and is already neutered. He doesn’t have any health concerns and his temperament is great with other people and other dogs. He knows the basic sit, lay and wait for his food commands. He is house trained but, he has his moments where if you don’t recognize he has to use it, he will use it in the house but, he knows right from wrong in that aspect.

Story
Hi, my name is Misty Blue and I am a spitfire, but in a good way. First, I am beautiful, but that can’t be all you love about me. I came into the rescue very pregnant and gave birth within 36 hours of arriving. I was a very protective, good momma, and learned to trust my foster mom slowly. Once my puppies were weaned and adopted, we set out to make me the best version of myself. I am an athlete through and through and would excel at agility, hiking with a backpack and anything and everything that involves a job. I can jump several feet into the air, climb most things and I balance like a champ. I am stubborn, and bonding and trust are very, very important to me. I need daily interaction, exercise and mental stimulation to be happy. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the sprinkler and will play in it, biting at the water for as long as you will let me. I also swim! And my favorite game may be parkour. I'll climb ladders, go down slides...anything physical I am totally game. Then, I'lll happily snuggle in for a nap. I spent two weeks at a board and train, where I began learning how to play appropriately with other dogs and meet some new people. I am good with people, and am good in public, so training can continue anywhere! An experienced owner is a must, as I am smarter than most dogs (and people) and need a firm but fun family. I chase all small creatures and will need a good fence to securely run my energy out. If you are looking for a workout buddy, someone to go on adventures with, then lay on the couch to watch a movie when all the excitement is done for the day, I may be your girl. ADOPTION FEE: $175 (All MVPC dogs are heartworm-tested and on prevention, completely vetted, spayed/neutered, microchipped, crate-trained and house-trained). ADOPTER: Breed/Working dog experience a must BIRTHDAY: 1/25/2020 FENCE: Required (an electric fence is not an acceptable form of containment) DOG FRIENDLY: Dog tolerant in public, learning to have fun and play DOGS IN HOME: male or solo CATS: No KIDS: Yes, over 10 A $100 hold fee is required for approved applications and will be applied to the full adoption fee of $175 when MVPC comes to visit your house with me! INQUIRIES: ALL inquiries begin with a submitted adoption application, which is found on our website, www.miamivalleypitcrew.com. We do not adopt to individuals under the age of 25. DO NOT: USE THE PETFINDER CONTACT/ADOPT BUTTONS--we are unable to monitor those and you will not receive a response. PLEASE NOTE: We are volunteer based and a home visit is required; we have a two-hour adoption radius from Kettering, OH for our adult dogs and 75 miles for our puppies. Exceptions for our ADULT dogs only, though rare, may be made on a case-by-case basis but we must be able to do a home visit. Thank you for your understanding!

Story
Hi, my name is Tom Bodett and I’ll leave the light on for ya…. In all seriousness, I, along with another dog, were abandoned at a local hotel and some awesome police officers got us to MVPC. I am a beautiful boy, and very devoted to my people. I love to play, and am quite active, but I am also a lover through and through. I love people and my only goal is to make you happy. While I get along with other dogs outside the home, inside the home, I get nervous around them. I am working on this in professional training! I am very strong and will need a family that will continue my training and take me on adventures to get my energy out, but dog beds and jammies are also much appreciated! I have THE best facial expressions and will literally try anything with you and for you. I really am that sweet and devoted! I cannot, however, swim…I tried and it didn’t go well. I sank. It wasn’t pretty and kinda embarrassing. But don’t worry, I’ll still happily travel with you…hotels with pools and all. I am currently on seizure medicine for a condition called “fly strike syndrome” where I would look like I was trying to catch a fly but there is nothing there. With the medicine, I no longer do this! It runs about $50 a month, but it definitely helps me be the best version of myself! ADOPTION FEE: $175 (All MVPC dogs are heartworm-tested and on prevention, completely vetted, spayed/neutered, microchipped, crate-trained and house-trained) I AM READY TO GO HOME!! If you are approved to be my new family, a hold fee of $100 is required and will be applied to the full adoption fee of $175 when MVPC comes to visit your house with me! ADOPTER: Dog experience, must be able to continue medication BIRTHDAY: 3/26/21 FENCE: Required (an electric fence is not an acceptable form of containment) DOG FRIENDLY: Yes DOGS IN HOME: preferred an only dog, as I get nervous CATS: Yes CHILDREN: Yes, 8 and over INQUIRIES: ALL inquiries begin with a submitted adoption application, which is found on our website, www.miamivalleypitcrew.com. We do not adopt to individuals under the age of 25. DO NOT: USE THE PETFINDER INQUIRY/CONTACT/ADOPT BUTTONS--we are unable to monitor those and you will not receive a response.

Story
Hi, my name is Juliana and MVPC took me and my five 3-week old puppies into a foster home, because let's face it. Shelters are no place for a mom and babies. I raised some amazing puppies (known as the "J" litter) and now I get to join them in my quest for a forever home! I am a velcro dog, meaning I really want to be with you. I like other dogs, and am learning to mind my manners now that the puppies are in their foster homes! We were DNA tested, and several breeds popped up, so I really am a fun, Heinz 57 mutt. I need a bit of time to warm up to men, but it isn't necessarily because I was abused, I just don't have much exposure to life! So I need a family who is looking for a sweet, athletic dog that can go on adventures and experience life with them! ADOPTION FEE: $175 (All MVPC dogs are heartworm-tested and on prevention, completely vetted, spayed/neutered, microchipped, crate-trained and house-trained) ADOPTER: Dog experience BIRTHDAY: 1/11/21 FENCE: Required (an electric fence is not an acceptable form of containment) DOG FRIENDLY: Yes! DOGS IN HOME: Yes, can be solo CATS: Dog savvy cats, as I will chase CHILDREN: Yes, 8 and over I AM READY TO GO HOME!! If you are approved to be my new family, a hold fee of $100 is required and will be applied to the full adoption fee of $175 when MVPC comes to visit your house with me!
