Ardent - URGENT!



Ardent is an adult female dog. Probably Classic American Bully or just a more heavy set bully type Pit Bull Terrier. She’s fairly short and stocky weights 45-48lbs (45 is her ideal weight).  She’s food motivated and eager to eat and will eat anything you put in front of her so she needs help keeping her slim. She’s named after a microbrewery in Richmond and needs an owner willing to keep her from looking like a keg.  If we were describing a cat we’d call her dilute tortishell but she’s a dog.  She’s blue and fawn brindlish. We say brindlish because she does not have well defined brindle stripes, but more a swirly mix of blue and fawn.  It’s unusual and very pretty.

Ardent is fully vetted including spay, vaccines and heart worm treatment (treated in Feb 2015).  She is currently on heartguard heart worm prevention. She needs to get a dental to address a few bad teeth (not an urgent issue) but otherwise she is ready to be adopted.  She is housebroken and crate trained. She is good in a crate and probably is the kind of dog that will need to be crated when you aren’t at home. She’s prone to getting into trouble like climbing on the table looking for food.

She’s has a moderate energy level. She’s not a sport dog and doesn’t need an athletic owner, just one who is willing to take her on a walk.  She will exercise as much or as little as you want. She’s happy to play in the yard and bake in the sunshine.  She prefers women to men but would bond well with either it just happens that her foster mom is female and she’s pretty attached.  She’s great in the car and is a good dog to run errands with on a cool day.  She is used to walking with a gentle leader.

Ardent is current on vaccines and has been spayed. She is excellent on lead, house trained, crate trained, loves the car, loves people of all sizes, loves to snuggle, and loves to go places. Ardent needs to be an only dog, although she is fine with other dogs in passing. Ardent is located in the RVA area. Anyone who is interested in more information about Ardent can contact me through Facebook or via email at Please share!

Ardent needs to be an ONLY dog (non negotiable). She's fine out on a walk or in training class, does not pay any mind to other dogs.  She has had significant problems with dogs in her foster home and should be an only pet.

To apply for her online:

We are helping Ardent's current owner find her appropriate placement. All adoption decisions will be made by her current owner. She does have an urgent situation and needs to find a new home soon. We are unable to take her officially into our adoption program and would be interested in finding her experienced rescue placement/foster care.
