September 2023 will mark a year that Destiny has been in foster care with Pet Adoption Services. She and her sister, Brianna, were found abandoned in a cardboard box on the side of the road in Metairie. At 8 weeks old, both pups were suffering from malnutrition. They were nursed back to health over a couple of more months, which accounts for missing out on events during what is often considered the "most adoptable" puppy months. But at almost 14 months, with a more clearly evident personality and balancing young energy with evolving maturity, Destiny is a perfect fit for a home wanting to avoid full-on puppy stage. She is great with other dogs and clearly loves people.
Current on vaccinations, neutered, and microchipped. Current on flea preventative and heartworm preventative.
Puppies and young adults should remain socialized to other dogs in their formative stages, so homes that can provide exposure to fully vaccinated and healthy well-behaved adult dogs is strongly preferred.
We ask that anyone applying take the extra obligation of owning this breed seriously, which means that you understand you must always strive for a any bully breed-type dog to be an ambassador for the breed.

This dog shows good other-dog tolerance at this time. However, dog tolerance levels in Pit Bull-type dogs can change as the dog matures. Please visit these links which will explain "dog-selectiveness" and how to set up multi-dog homes for success before you proceed with an application:
Some homeowners insurances exclude bully breeds, including staffordshire terriers and/or pit bulls and mixes of those breeds. It is the applicant's responsibility to know the terms of their homeowner's insurance prior to applying.
Landlords may have breed and weight restrictions. It is the responsibility of renters to have spoken with their landlord and reviewed their lease agreement and to have this information available for the application.
