Lady, an American Pit Bull Terrier is looking for a new home. To ensure this happens for her, there are some things she wants to point out about herself!
At just 9 months young, she knows a few basic commands such as ‘sit’ and ‘stay’. Even though she is just partially housebroken, she wants to point out that this is just an opportunity for her new family to bond with her and get acquainted with what a sweet and affectionate dog she is. And if that isn’t enough, she’ll promise to entertain you with chewing on the soft toys you’d given her, help you get fit with the daily walks she’ll want to go on and at the end of the day let you watch how adorable she is when she’s curled up on a soft dog bed.
Lady is located at the Arizona Humane Society-Campus for Compassion location (602) 395-3874. It’d be best if her new family has older children only (meet-and-greet required). If other dogs are in the household a meet-and-greet is necessary to ensure a good match.
Lady’s pet id number is A386953
The common conceptions of the American Pit Bull Terrier are they are aggressive and violent animals. While they are generally more aggressive towards other dogs, an adequate amount of exercise, training and socialization will minimize this.
What should be known about this breed is that they are incredibly friendly, good-natured and affectionate towards people. While their obedience makes them eager to please their owner, they do need someone who is a very firm and consistent pack leader. That person must know how to be the boss to discourage this breed from thinking it is the boss of the house. Unlike other types of less physically powerful dogs, it is important to keep consistent boundaries for the American Pit Bull.
They can live in an apartment, but do need a good amount of exercise.
Generally, the American Pit Bull is a healthy breed, but is susceptible to hip dysphasia and congenital heart disease. Their average life expectancy is about 12 years.
