Free at last, Monroe, along with another dog, were rescued from living in a small outdoor kennel together since they were puppies (over 7 years!). Monroe is a black/white Pitbull Mix who weighs about 55 pounds. Her estimated date of birth is 10-15-12. Monroe is very loving and just wants to be loved, hang out with and be part of the family. She is good with kids, although might be too enthusiastic with small toddlers and children. Monroe is a happy, active, inquisitive and a love bug! Due to high prey drive, Monroe needs a home with a secure high fence and no cats or small dogs or other small pets. Monroe is good on walks and in public. She does well with obedience training and knows to sit for food and treats. She is house trained and crate trained. Monroe has not been around many dogs and is a bit undersocialized with other dogs and will need proper introductions when meeting new dogs and probably would do best with male dogs. She is looking for a home where the owners are home much of the time and have time to give her the love and attention she deserves. If left alone, another dog to keep her company would be best. We recommend her new potential adopter be an experienced dog owner who has experience with bully breeds. Monroe is healthy and has been spayed, vaccinated, dewormed and microchipped. She is ready and waiting to go to her new forever home. $100 adoption fee, cash only, which is to help reimburse for a portion of expenses of dog rescue and rehabilitation.

If interested in this dog, please tell us a little about you, your family, your lifestyle, your other pets, your experience as a dog owner (which breed, etc.), where you live (which city in a home or apt) and what you are looking for in a dog. Thank you. Our adoption process involves meeting the animal by appointment. We have the best interest of the animal in mind and our goal is to find a good, permanent home for each of our rescued animals. We have the right to decline an application if we feel it is not a good match/fit or suitable home. If you like the animal and we both feel it is a good match, an application and adoption contract is completed. A convenient day/time is arranged for us to deliver the animal to its new home to do a home/yard check (to make sure the home and yard is safe and secure). We will collect the adoption fee (cash only) when we deliver the animal to its new home. All our adoptions are on a trial basis because our goal is to have a successful adoption where the animal has a good permanent home and never ends up in a bad situation again. We ask that you give the animal a chance to adjust and settle in his new home and environment. Going to a new home with new people and a new environment is traumatic and stressful. It might be nervouse at first. It will take time for the animal to become comfortable around you and his/her new home. This should be a bonding period where you get to know the animal and connect with it, spend time with it and take things slow. He/she will need to get to know and trust you and learn the rules of the house and what is expected of him/her. This takes time, sometimes 2-3 weeks. During this time we will hold the adoption fee and if the adoption is not working out, we ask that you contact us and return the animal and we will refund your adoption fee.
