Breed: Pit bull mix
Age: 7 months old
Color: White and tan
Pearl is a 7 month old pit bull mix. Being young, she’s very excitable and likes to bounce around. While she is a very good-natured dog, in her last home she chased after small children and cats in an effort to play with them. With that in mind it’s imperative that Pearl’s next family bring her in for dog training so she can learn better manners (she already knows some commands like “sit.”) It’s also important that her next family not have cats or young children (kids should be at least 13 years old), as Pearl needs to learn how to be more calm before she can be around them. She should be with someone who has some experience raising bully breeds, as well as high-energy dogs. Seeing as she’s a pup, she will love to go for hikes and runs, as well as walks. Pearl will do very well with a family who can provide lots of love as well as rules and discipline. She’s currently at Dakin’s Springfield location.
