Pit Bull Terrier

Pretty Heaven arrived at NCCR in May this year, rescued from an uncertain future in an Ohio dog pound.  She is a 5-6 year old female Pit Bull mix.  When Heaven arrived, she was very pregnant and soon gave birth to a litter of 10 healthy pups on Mother's Day.  The pups all went to homes of their own and Heaven now awaits her forever home.  She is very affectionate with people that she knows well!  Care will need to be taken to ensure she doesn't become overly protective of her new family and home and learn her place in the household; an adult home is preferred as we do not know her background. She walks nicely on a leash and has been paired up with quite a few dogs at the Rescue and gets along just fine with them!  She gets a little too excited around cats, so a cat free home is desired.  Heaven is food motivated, she really loves to eat.  Napping and sunbathing are also on her list of favorite (in)activities! 

Heaven is sponsored by Ann Odell, Suzanne and former NCCR residents, Tillie Mae and Bron Bron, Dave and Nancy Nuzzo, Lisa and Jason Weaver, Dawn Tunstall and Mark Zafuto, Barbara Nodes-Nokoski. Heaven is also sponsored by Meg Thering in memory of her friend Karen's dog Juniper. Thank you everyone! 		

Heaven is spayed, vaccinated and microchipped.  Her adoption fee is $190.00.  (cash or check only, we are unable to accept credit cards)

 If you think you might be interested in adopting, your first step should be to complete an adoption application which you'll find under each dog's photo.  If you are on Petfinder, you will need to go to our webpage at http://www.caninerescue.org/available-pets/ (just copy and paste that link in your browser).   The application to adopt is  in the very lower left hand corner of each pet's webpage. 

We do adopt out of state, however we do not transport or ship dogs.  Potential adopter must be able and willing to travel to the Rescue to meet the dog they are interested in.  

*PLEASE double check all of the phone numbers that you provide as if they are incorrect, we will be unable to process your application.  Please also let your references know that someone from NCCR will be calling them. Most adoption team members call from their personal phone so advise your references that there may be an unknown number or a private number calling them.
