Ike is a four-month-old (as of 1/30/19) Pit Bull puppy. Ike is a typical puppy who loves to explore and play. He is doing great with his crate training and can make it through the night really well. He is still learning that the house is not where we go potty. He is also learning sit and can do it pretty well when there's food involved! Ike does get car sick and is very scared of the car because of this, but we are working on learning that it is not so scary. Ike loves to play with his foster sister, Diamond, and see what she is getting up to. He can be timid on walks when he's on his own, but he is super confident when his foster sister is by his side. 

 

He loves to chase the resident cats and doesn't understand why they don't want to play, so he would probably do best in a home without cats (or with someone who will work on teaching him to leave them alone). He loves his food and he loves his human. When given the choice to play with a toy, or get love from his human, he chooses his human every time. Ike is not a mouthy puppy so far, but he does try to jump up on everyone and everything so he will need help learning not to do so. Ike has not been around kids yet, but his foster thinks he would do great with them since he just wants to be in your lap and isn't mouthy! Ike has the cutest sweetest face and just wants all the love!

 

Ike will have basic medical treatments done before adoption is finalized, but we are accepting applications now so he can go to his furever home as soon as he is ready!

Please read through our adoption policies and requirements at www.awfpva.org/adoptions prior to requesting an application. 

 

We require all animals in the household to be up-to-date on core vaccines. Dogs must be vaccinated against rabies, canine distemper, and Bordetella. They must also have a current heartworm test. Cats must be vaccinated against rabies and feline distemper. 

 

All of our animals are in foster homes. We will schedule meet and greets after approving your adoption application to ensure our fosters are only meeting with serious applicants. Please allow 1-2 weeks for approval as AWFP is run by volunteers who are full-time veterinary students.
