Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (medium coat)
Weight: 40 lbs
Height: 20 in
Estimated Birthdate: 10/30/2020
Fence Needed: Yes
Location: Dreamweaver Farms in Pacolet, SC
Reason for being in rescue: Rhea was found as a stray by a volunteer on her way to the farm. No one came forward for this beautiful girl.
Special Needs: Rhea is spayed, up to date on vaccines, and heartworm negative. Rhea arrived in rescue with dirty, itchy eyes and ears. She was diagnosed with an acute allergic reaction likely environmental. She has been treated for her symptoms and responded quickly. However, due to her young age, she may develop more allergies with allergic skin disease and needs close monitoring.
What kind of home would be best for me: Rhea is a young, active dog looking for an active home. She would thrive with another energetic dog that will play with her and teach her - just no puppies please. Rhea is very smart and will benefit from training. She is a velcro dog that wants to be with you all the time. Rhea's ideal home has someone home during the day or someone who can take their dog with them to work. She is clean in her crate and will be fine if crated for up to 4 hours with breaks. Rhea has so much happy, positive energy that she is eager to share!
What is my personality like: Rhea is a young, fun girl. She is so happy and people oriented, we know she must have been someone's pet. She wants to be with people constantly and is very eager to please and be rewarded with praise and love.
Rhea tried out living in a foster home with one of our caregivers, but life with a young puppy was too much for her. She is great with other large dogs and enjoys their company, but prefers not to live with puppies. Rhea is clean in her crate and did great with potty training in her foster home. She regularly asks to go out. Like any training, she needs routine and commitment but she is very smart and picks things up quickly.
Rhea walks well on a leash. She wants to be with you so is far more focused on being with you than actual leash manners. She loves toys and will play all day long with something. Mental stimulation in addition to physical exercise is very important with this girl. Rhea does show some light signs of separation anxiety. With training while she is young, this can be corrected. This girl has also just had a lot of change and doesn't ever want to be abandoned again.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Friendly
Tips and Tidbits: Rhea's estimated birthday is 10/30/2020. She was found as a stray so this is purely an estimate based on her overall health and physical condition.
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.
