In shelter Dog

Newport, NC, 28570
Pet name:
Pit Bull Terrier
Meet this cutie named Bruce! He came into the shelter with his sister Heidi on August 22, 2022 when Animal Control picked them up as a strays and owner never came to reclaim them. Sad for them. They seem to be well taken care of. Bruce is 5 years old,  current on shots, and already neutered. He loves spending time outside of his kennel with his sister Heidi and is just a happy guy who is full of unconditional love to share. Loves to play fetch with a tennis ball (but will chew up the tennis ball once he’s done playing and loves soaking up all the attention and loving one has to give. A sweet and laid back personality. Maybe you should have the most perfect loving FOREVER home for Bruce and maybe even his sister too.? Visit with them today and give him a chance at a wonderful life!! 
If you have another dog and are interested in meeting another potential new furry member please bring him or her to the shelter and meet on neutral ground before adopting. No need to shuffle the animals around any more than necessary. Please know that 1 mosquito bite can create heart worms and they can be fatal if not treated. It is VERY important to keep your pets healthy and protected by keeping them on a once a month heart worm and flea/tick prevention. These animals are counting on you as their owner to provide them with lots a love and the proper health care so PLEASE make sure you are aware and prepared before adopting. Owning a pet is an extra expense and responsibility but is so worth every minute and penny you invest in them. They will add lots of joy and unconditional love if given a fair chance.
The shelter is open Mon.-Fri. 10-1, 2-5, Sat. 10-4.  Adopt a homeless pet and save a life. If you can not adopt right now come out and volunteer and make a difference in the lives of these animals while they await their FOREVER home.  
In order to adopt any of our "bully breeds" there is special paper work that will need to be collected and approved prior to the adoption.  We love all of our dogs and want to make sure to place our "bully babies" in homes best suited for them.
