Please read my description carefully. I know I am beautiful and I know I am a Red-nosed Pitbull, but you need to want to adopt Me for Me, for who I am as a dog, not for my breed or my looks. I am a very very shy, submissive female. I have been with my foster family for over 3 weeks and I am now liking them and happy to go for walks and greet them - but it has taken patient, very patient calm consistent work on their part to gain my trust. I am very sweet and smart, there is nothing mean about me at all, I am just very timid. New things, new people, noises, movement they all scare me. I will make a loyal and loving family member, but confidence building and patience will be key, along with the understanding that I will always be a shy, submissive dog. What I am looking for in a home: -Experienced, patient, kind humans with no young children - not that I don't like them, the little ones move too fast and are too much for my timid self. -Another Dog - this dog must be calm and confident, as well as great with other dogs. Friendly and a leader that will help me gain confidence -Cats - these would be acceptable in my forever home, truth be told I am kinda scared of them too, but I am good at walking around them or just sniffing at them if they come to see me -An indoor home, preferably in a quiet area. Yard should be fenced as when I get scared I do tend to want to run and hide. I need a good amount of exercise, I definitely prefer walking or hiking to running when I am on leash. When I am comfortable with my surroundings and feel safe I do like to run around and have fun in a yard. My foster family suspect I have spent much of my young life tied up and unfortunately having puppies ( I am now spayed so no more of that nonsense) not experiencing life. None of us are perfect, we all have scars and life experiences that have shaped us, but I have a super personality and a soft loving spirit, I need a home to help me grow and gain confidence and I will be a loyal companion.

Please note: If other cats/dogs in your home are not spayed/neutered, we may deny your application. SCARS exists due to lack of spaying/neutering and it is our goal to end this cycle. If there is a documented medical reason for your animal to not be spayed/neutered, we will work with you.
