In shelter Dog

Cedar Rapids, IA, 52405
Pet name:
Pit Bull Terrier
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Vega is truly a bright star! She came to LHAR starving and heartworm positive. She has soared through her treatment and beefed up to become an affectionate pack member who loves to follow her people around and snuggle on the couch. She is now a big girl who loves to go outside for her limited walks. Her activity has been limited because of her heartworm diagnosis, but she would love longer walks. She will need some more leash training since she has become a big strong dog, and she should be back to full activity within the next month. She does not appear to be reactive to other dogs on leash and we have only heard her bark once in 4 months when surprised by another dog. She is very mellow and is relaxed through vacuuming, thunder and fireworks. She enjoys car rides. Vega does not know how to play and ignores balls, sticks and pull toys. She loves playing wheres the biscuit ?" and will happily search a room until she has found it. She is a smart, housetrained, kennel trained and basic command trained, affectionate dog who will become a lifelong companion for a lucky owner! Vegas adoption fee is $250 and includes her spay, microchip, current vaccinations and preventatives plus a free basic obedience course at Cedar Run Company in Hiawatha. Last Hope requires that all animals be kept as indoor pets only, be altered and current on vaccinations and preventatives. We look for adopters with current/former pets to have a demonstrated history of this and do request a vet history check and a home visit. Please submit an adoption application for consideration through our website,
