Ariel Pit Bull Terrier Puppy Female
Saint Louis, MO
Ariel is a 9 mnth old, 45lb pitbull terrier mixture who is looking for her forever home! She is currently completing a two week Board and Train with Complete Canine Academy to work on confidence building, crate training, and basic obedience. She has already mastered sit, down, stay, place, and come! We saw potential in this sweet girl and wanted to give her the tools she needs to make a precious companion for a lucky family. Ariel can be a bit shy around new people, but warms up quickly. She is a playful and energetic girl who loves to play (and destroy) her toys and would love to have many of her own. She is a super cute and intelligent girl. At training, Ariel has picked up on new commands very quickly and is showing good progress with becoming more and more comfortable in her crate for extended periods of time. Ariel used to be terrified to go anywhere near a crate, but now, she will walk in on her own without a struggle. How impressive!We are not positive about Ariel's past, but it appears that she might have a history of abuse. Quick motions (swatting a fly, tossing a stick) often make her very uncomfortable, and she sometimes cries out, runs out of the room, or flattens herself to the floor when motions like this happen near her. Her trainer is diligently working with her to make her more comfortable with every day motions like these and is showing her that no 1 will hurt her again. Ariel is learning that she can trust people again and is making nice strides in the right direction. Ariel would do best in a home with older kids due to this possible history of abuse. Small kids will likely be too unpredictable for her, as they tend to like to swing toys and throw things. We want Ariel to feel comfortable and safe in her new home, so a home with kids over eight years old will be necessary for her.Ariel loves other dogs! A confident, friendly medium-large dog would be beneficial for her as she likes to play and have companionship from other canines, but sometimes also enjoys just being near other dogs to relax. She does well with cats and has not shown any negative behaviors towards them while at training. Ariel's perfect home would be an active family who enjoys hiking, jogging, or exploring, or a family with a fenced backyard who is able to spend time playing with her every day. She thrives on activity and will continue to gain confidence and trust in her people with continued training (either formal weekly training or just regular practice of commands at home). This special girl deserves nothing but the best and we are determined to find her the perfect home. Her adoption charge is $250.If you are interested in adopting Ariel, fill out an application at istodaymydayrescue.org!Please email XXXX@istodaymydayrescue.org if you have questions about Ariel.
