Adopt Gem

Female Pit Bull Terrier


Meet Gem!  This girl is so special; you might end up calling her your Precious Gem!  She's had a rough time lately, having just given birth to three puppies, but she's recovering nicely in a loving foster home.

Gem is content to relax and hang out with her people.  Her foster mom loves her expressive eyes that seem to tell a story.  This sweet girl loves being pet, and will sit for ages while her humans pet her.  She also loves treats!

Gem's ideal home is a low-key one.  She needs a quiet environment with a family who will shower her with love and attention, and treat her as one of their own. Since she's in need of so much affection, a home without another dog competing her for it may be best - although she has yet to interact with dogs other than her puppy! 

This amazing mama is deserving of a second chance at a better life. Could it be with you? Apply to adopt Gem today!

Gem is available for pre-adoption only at this time, as she is heartworm positive. Heartworm disease is a non-contagious and treatable condition in dogs, but is fatal if left untreated. For more information about the spread, treatment, and prevention of heartworms visit:
