Neko, pit bull terrier mix
Neko is a handsome male pit bull terrier mix currently residing at Last Hope K9 Rescue.
Neko gets along well with other dogs. His ideal forever home would be a cat-free environment. Last Hope K9 Rescue, however, wants to place him in a home without small children. Neko is neutered, and he has had all his shots. He's already house-trained. Neko is a special needs pet, so please inquire about his specific care requirements.
Notes from Neko's caretakers:
Neko is an active, goofy, playful dog. Even though he only has three legs it does not slow him down at all. Neko is very strong and will need continued work on his manners, and requires an adult only home. He takes a few minutes to warm up, but once he does he really loves his people.

Notes from Tito's caretakers:
Tito is a really sweet guy who is trying his best to learn the new ways of life off of a chain. He's still learning a lot of new things to him. He loves human attention and hell be a wonderful companion. He would love a patient home to support him through new learning experiences.

Zara is a winsome female shar-pei dog currently residing at A Place for Ace.
Zara loves cats and dogs. Good news: She is already house-trained. Zara has been vaccinated.
Zara's current caretakers say:
Zara is good with dogs, but not very small puppies. She lives with other dogs over age one, and gets along well with them all. She also ignores cats. Zara is a tripod and has only three legs. She can still play and walk just fine.
