She is a 2.5 year old Pit Bull mix that is is housebroken and crate trained, and good with other dogs and people. But she is not very fond of cats.
Recycled Pits told me the following about Phoebe:
Phoebe is a pit mix and is approx 2.5 years old. She came to us from a high intake shelter. She was dumped there by her owners when they were done breeding her along with her 2 pups. Her 2 pups were fortunate enough to get homes, but she wasn't even going to be put on the adoption floor. Why? Because she has a slight heart murmur. (She can have a long healthy life, google it, it's quite more common then you would expect.) Phoebe has been attending obedience classes and gets along great with other dogs. She is a temp foster home and is looking for a foster to adopt or forever home. Since she gets along great with other dogs and kids and she's active, she would like a home like that or a place where someone can throw her a ball or two. But no cats please. She thinks cats drool and dogs rule.
By the way, I personally have owned 2 dogs with heart murmurs. Both had perfectly normal and full lives and spent lots of time and energy running around and fetching a ball. Each lived well into their teen years!
Do you have some concerns because this beautiful girl is a member of what some call the 'Bully Breeds?' I'd like to share some important information with you. First of all, please have a look at the list of dog breeds recognized as bully breeds. Once you look at the list you might be confused. You might wonder why some of these breeds are considered bully breeds. So take a moment to learn what the term bully breed really means. And if you still have some concerns please take a moment to see how well Pit Bull type dogs did on standard temperament testing. Their scores are better than so many popular breeds. And even if a Pit Bull is not for you, please take a few moments to review some of this information and become educated about these wonderful dogs.
Phoebe is currently located in the Chicaco area. If you would like to learn more about her please visit her Facebook Page or contact her rescue by emailing Stana at Recycled.Pits@gmail.com and copy Bree.Recycled.Pits@gmail.com.
