Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Bella aka “Big Mamma” is the perfect couch potato dog. She was a mamma dog late in life and has earned her right to bask in the sunlight and just relax. It is apparent that she did not spend her recent years with humans but probably as a back yard breeder dog. It took Bella a little while before she learned to appreciated all the fun that a relationship with people can bring...like treats and toys. Once she trusts you Bella loves to cuddle and accept petting and also loves to get people to throw her ball. She loves toys and treats and can entertain herself very well. She is crate trained and seems to enjoy her down time with a good bone to chew. Bella has no allergies or food sensitivities. Bella is a big girl so a strong handler is key. She has no interest in sharing her home with another dog, after giving birth to all those big puppies who could blame her. Bella walks well on a leash and can be dog reactive, but easily managed with a strong leader. If you have a soft spot near the TV that needs filling, Bella is your girl. Please consider sponsoring Bella with either a one-time or monthly tax-deductible donation. Your donation will help It's The Pits with day-to-day care, including food, vaccinations, flea treatment, treats and toys. Click on the Sponsor This Pet link above to make your donation today.

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. I am backed into a corner. I have a 9-year-old Am Staff mix who I rescued for my niece 6 years ago. He initially did not like men but came right up to me to the surprise of the staff at the pound. Long story short, my niece after five years decided she did not want the financial responsibility of caring for Zeus. I took Zeus in because I did not want him to go back to the pound or humane society. He does not do well in a cage. My other two dogs have not fully accepted Zeus into the pack, but they do sleep together, pal around etc…but there is a divide between my other two and Zeus.  My HOA is on me about having three dogs.  Only allowed to have two.   I have recently had all my dogs trained via a dog psychology center. The center trained me in how to behave/control the dogs. Best training, I have ever had. Zeus responded extremely well to this. Basically, I let the “pack” know that I’m the Apex Predator and not to worry about other people, animals etc…I have control. They are all now a pleasure to walk with both on and off leash. Pros about Zeus : He is extremely loving and will be glued to your side once he imprints on you, he is very protective in that he will try to save you from drowning in the pool, he loves to lay right next to you, he loves horse poop…wait, that’s a con, he looks tough but he’s a softy. Cons about Zeus : he has separation anxiety but has improved dramatically, does not like to be kenneled, does not do well around aggressive dogs but is chill with cool dogs. He does not like shady men or men who are not confident and act weasley, needs to take medication (vetmedin) for a low-grade heart murmur (on a scale of 1-10 he is considered a 3), he does have a high prey drive and no lizard is safe. I want to keep him with my pack, but it is becoming difficult for me working, single dad, moving, and not having the time to fully dedicate myself to three dogs. I walk them twice a day. I will not send him to the pound or humane society, so I am looking for a good home. He will not just go to anyone. Also, one of my dogs has high anxiety and it bleeds off into Zeus. I know Zeus will do amazing as an only dog or with another dog that is chill and not dominant. Open to suggestions and advice. My heart is already broken but I know in the long run it will be better for all parties involved. Escondido, California. $200 rehoming fee.  Contact  bojak80@yahoo.com.

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Meet Harley Quinn, female, under a year old! She looks to be a boxer/pit bull mix, is housebroken but needs training to learn how to walk on a leash. She has not chewed anything other than her toys and has not dug up the yard. She seems very smart and is protective of the house barking alerts whenever anyone approaches. She loves people and other dogs, and although she has bursts of puppy energy she is very chill and just sits by me when I am working. She loves attention and tummy rubs. I have a 12 year-old dog and this is just too much puppy for him. I want to find her a loving family who has the time to give her all the attention she deserves. She is an absolute sweetheart.   Please contact  beth1826@gmail.com for more information.Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.July 19, 2024, 7:49 pm
