Hi! I am Venus! I am a happy go lucky two-year-old pittie. I was brought into Riverside shelter by animal control with a huge chain and padlock around my neck that they had to cut off with bolt cutters. Thankfully I was rescued on Valentine's Day, which is why I am named after the Roman Goddess of love! I have A LOT of love to give! I am friendly with dogs of all sizes on pack walks and just hanging out. We are working on my reactivity towards dogs I see from afar. I just want to hang out with them!! I LOVE people! my foster mom has been very diligent in helping me with my obedience skills and basic commands. I love hikes, belly rubs, chewing my toys, and being a social butterfly. I would do best in a home with an active, large breed experienced family. If you have pittie or dominant breed experience, even better! I would love to hang out with you, exercise with you, watch TV with you - anything with you! Oh, and my favorite thing is giving puppy kisses! Lots and lots of puppy kisses!
