Raksha (or as she's now called, Penny) is an incredibly sweet and beautiful pittie lady!  She loves cuddles and sleeping next to her people while they watch TV!  She can be reluctant of some strangers but typically loves all adults! Her favorite things are spinning in circles of joy when she's about to go outside and chewing on her toys!  
She's only 2 years old but she does incredibly well when left to roam the house on her own.  She has only chewed on her own toys and has not had any accidents!  She is glad to be allowed to be left out when her people leave the house too because her former family said she wasn't a big fan of going in her kennel.  
Raksha can be very particular about her dog friends and would not do well around small dogs or cats, so a fence is ideal for this girl and no dog parks either.  She would love to be your only pet!  She doesn't get annoyed by her foster families yappy neighbor dogs though, so if you also have tiny, loud fluff balls next door that shouldn't be a problem for miss Raksha! 
If you are looking for a non-destructive, potty trained, young pitbull who rarely barks and maybe has a little extra energy to give you kisses and crawl in your lap, then this is the dog for you! 
 

An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal. Once we receive your application, a placement coordinator will be in contact with you as soon as possible.

Please check out our website, www.ruffstartrescue.org for more details and additional pictures on any of our animals!

All Ruff Start dogs and cats are spayed/neutered, up to date on age appropriate vaccines, microchipped, dewormed, and on monthly flea/tick and heartworm prevention (dogs) as well as heartworm tested (dogs).
