Description: 
Meg is a one year old spayed female Pit Bull Terrier. Meg has had a rough life for such a young girl. She was found running loose in a rural area. Her skin was so raw from flea and tick bites that we weren’t sure if her hair would ever grow back. Luckily, Meg’s beautiful coat grew back with a lovely shine! Meg has been in a foster home for a few months and she has learned how to be a nice young lady. Meg has learned not to jump on visitors, how to sit, lie down, “kennel,” and play nicely with her foster siblings. When she first arrived, Meg loved to try and hold your hand with her mouth. She has decided she much prefers to hold toys instead, but will still occasionally reach out for your hand and gently hold it. Meg is very good at behaving in the house, but she sometimes forgets her manners when she is over-excited. With a bit of obedience reinforcement in new surroundings she will settle right down and behave beautifully! While she is still a young dog, her foster siblings are very happy to report that she has shed some of her overzealous puppy play tactics. Meg is a very happy, peppy girl! She loves to trot around the yard picking up sticks as she goes. Meg is very curious to meet other dogs; she makes fast friends with them at the dog park. She especially loves to play tug-o-war with her foster brother (a Staffordshire terrier). Meg would like to be able to swim, but she isn’t very graceful yet. She does enjoy lounging in the puppy play pool in the back yard during the summer. Meg loves to stick her face under water to find out what is going on under there. She also likes to play with the water hose. After a long day of play, Meg enjoys snuggling for some T.V. time with her foster family. She often uses her foster brother as her pillow, sometimes even choosing to completely cover him with her body. Meg is kennel trained and is crated during the day while her foster mom is at work and for bedtime. Meg has had no accidents in her foster home, and she is quite willing to let you know when it is time to “potty.” Meg would be fine with older or sturdy kids. She loves the 11 year old sibling of her foster mom. Meg has a little bit of energy, and while she would never intentionally hurt a child, she may move too fast for younger children. Meg gets along great with every dog she has met, and would definitely love a home with another dog who would play and snuggle with her, even though snuggling with her human is her favorite thing! Could this peppy girl be the perfect fit for your home? *Home Inspections and References Required.
