Arrival Story:
I am active in pit bull rescue. While I was at a local animal shelter visiting a dog that would have to be euthanized, I decided to pull a needy pit bull into our rescue group. I asked the kennel lead who the BEST pit bull was available for adoption. She said there is one dog that for some reason no one has adopted in 2 1/2 months, and the is the favorite of the shelter staff. In fact, every week volunteers and kennel attendants pleaded with the shelter manager not to euthanize her. I met Mia and fell in love, and now she is safe in our foster care. Now she is looking for her perfect forever home. Update: Mia has found her perfect match! She is now the apple of her mom's eye, and the sister to her four-legged brother, Goose! She is living the high life having finally found the place she was looking for all this time...

Mia is all about pleasing people and gets along very well with her dog pals, and even hangs out with her foster cat siblings. Mia is happiest time is cuddling and she will weasel her way into your lap, your arms, your bed, anything to get close to you. Maybe she learned that from the ferrets she also shares a home with. She craves human companionship, so the perfect owner will be her best friend, who will return her attention in kind. Mia was on the available dog row at a local shelter for 2 + months, eagerly awaiting her new home, which never came. But she did not lose hope and she stayed resilient. She was the favorite dog of the shelter staff and volunteers, who saved her week after week, knowing she was extra special. She is playful, kind, and eager to please. Mia is now crate and potty trained, and is quickly learning obedience skills. The person who becomes her new parent will sure be one 'lucky dog'!
