Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Labrador Retriever (medium coat)
Weight: Adelaide currently weight 8.6 lbs. We expect she will weigh between 55-60 pounds when she is full grown.
Height: 6 in
Estimated Birthdate: 11/11/2020
Fence Needed: Yes

Special Needs: Adelaide is a young dog. She is up to date on all vaccines for his age. Due to her age, she will not be spayed prior to placement. Adopting Adelaide will require you to sign a contract committed to spaying her at your cost within 6 months. ADELAIDE REQUIRES A HOME WITH ANOTHER CONFIDENT DOG.
What kind of home would be best for me? Thank you for carefully considering the addition of a puppy to your family. Puppies can be a joyous experience, but they can also be a tremendous amount of work. Since our goal is to place each of our dogs in forever homes, we are especially cautious with puppies. We like to stress 3 major things when considering a puppy vs. an adult dog: 1) many adult dogs are well bred, well trained dogs who find themselves in rescue through no fault of their own, 2) adult dogs are eager to share their love and bond with their new family, and 3) puppies will always require far more time, energy, and training than an adult dog. Our ideal puppy adopters are -experienced dog owners with a solid record of excellent vet care of their previous pets, scheduled away from home for no more than 4 hours per day OR have another canine companion already in the home, stay at home type of people (work at home, home schoolers, retired, etc)
What is my personality like: Adelaide is a young, rambunctious puppy with a little bit of sass. She is active and playful and needs the companionship of another dog to play with and learn from. Adelaide is always hungry and can be picky about letting others near her food when she is eating. This is easily corrected, but if not could turn into full food aggression.
Adelaide already has a strong recall. In a pack, she will follow closely without a leash. She is at a perfect age to really begin training and is eager to learn and follow. Adelaide has a big personality in a tiny body. She has so much love and energy to share!
How do I act when I first meet new people: Friendly
Tips and Tidbits: Adelaide's estimated birthday is 11/11/2020
House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
