In shelter Dog

Fairfax, VA, 22038
Pet name:
Geneva (aka Winnie) *Adopt*
Pit Bull Terrier
Foster Homes Needed!

Do you have time and room in your life for a foster dog?


Winnie is 1.5 -2 yrs old, 45lbs, has plenty of energy and loves to run and play in the yard and really looks forward to her daily walks. The word that describes Winnie the most is: sweetness. Winnie arrived as a stray in the Summer of 2021 and was very timid at first. She is sometimes still easily spooked at loud or unfamiliar noises or fast movements but has learned to trust people and she loves to snuggle with her humans on the sofa or bed in the evenings.

Winnie is 100% house trained, has never tried to chew things that dont belong to her or get into the trash. She loves having a fenced in backyard where she can chase squirrels, play fetch with a tennis ball, or just take in some sun.

Shes very trainable and already knows a broad vocabulary of commands, including: come, sit, stay, lie down, leave it, walk, kennel up, eat?, lets go!, you wanna go out?, inside, give me a kiss, to name a few.

Although Winnie is staying in a house with cats and other dogs right now we recommend Winnie not live with cats, dogs or young children as it would be best for Winnie to be the only pet in the home.**BECAUSE OF OUR REQUIREMENT FOR A HOME VISIT, WE ARE ONLY ABLE TO ADOPT TO HOMES IN THE NORTHERN VA / MARYLAND / DC METRO AREA**

FindpetTM is a Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry for the AAHA Universal Pet Microchip Lookup Tool. AAHA provides an internet-based application that enables veterinarians, humane organizations, pet owners or other persons to search various Pet Recovery Service registries and identify those registries on which a particular microchip is registered. AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
