Description: 
Kira is in desperate need of a new Foster home or a loving, responsible and permanent Family to call her own! Kira's current foster family are the only reason that Kira is alive today, they nursed her back to health after being found incredibly emaciated and neglected. 'We rescued a 10 month old, emaciated pit mix several months ago. She Her tail bone protruded from her tail and ball/socket hip joints were coming through. Needless to say, even knowing nothing about pit bulls, I couldn't turn her away. She has had all vaccinations, on HW preventive and is being spayed 7/18. Kira is good with cats and children and just thrives on attention. Kira is housebroken and now knows basic commands such as sit, down, crate, and sometimes (lol) stay. She does run, bark & jump at new people, but is fine within minutes. We consulted several trainers and are working on this behavior and are seeing improvement. I have three other dogs, two cats and a son who is paraplegic and we cannot keep her. My husband has literally said it s him or the dog. I am desperate to find a new foster home. This dog deserves a forever home. Kira's Adoption Donation will be $250, this goes to help cover the cost of her vetting and time in Foster Care.

A Little Bit About American Pit Bull Terriers: The Pit Bull immediately strikes one as being a dog of power, passion, and undying willingness. The American Pit Bull Terrier has a strong pleasure to please. By no means are these dogs people-haters or people-eaters. Their natural aggressive tendencies are toward other dogs and animals, not people. However if they are properly socialized they will not even be aggressive with them. These are truly quality companions for quality owners only! The American Pit Bull Terrier is a good-natured, amusing, extremely loyal and affectionate family pet, which is good with children and adults. Almost always obedient, it is always eager to please its master. It is an extremely courageous and intelligent guard dog that is very full of vitality. The American Pit Bull Terrier can be willful and needs a firm hand. Excellent with children in the family, they have a high pain tolerance and will happily put up with rough child play. A minimum of training will produce a tranquil, obedient dog. It has given outstanding results as a guardian of property, but is at the same time esteemed as a companion dog. When properly trained and socialized, this is a very good dog and a great family companion. Unfortunately, some choose to promote the fighting instinct in the breed, giving it a bad name.
