Hello friends! My name is Arya, and I am a 10 month old pit bull. I live in Arizona with my mommies, and a whole gang of furry pals! I was adopted from a local rescue at 12 weeks old, and I have been loved ever since! My goal is to help change the way people see my breed – we are not the monsters that the media often makes us out to be. I am definitely a lover, NOT a fighter, as the saying goes.
I am a gentle soul, and I love EVERYONE! Whether you’re a person, dog, cat, or mailman; I consider you my friend. Mommy says I don’t know what strangers are, and I doubt I ever will! I live with a big dog, little dog, and several cats. I love them all very much, but I don’t think they are always that keen on me – I really like to lick their faces.
Since I was adopted, I have been “in training”. I really love working with mom, and I am always eager to figure out what it is that she wants me to do. I know a lot of commands, and I’m pretty smart (at least that’s what I’m told!). I graduated from my puppy class with my trainer, Brenda, at Awesome Mannered Canines last year. I am now taking a class with my mom every Sunday to work towards earning my Canine Good Citizen certification. This is an AKC title that shows people that I am a well-mannered canine in my community. I have to work very hard, but mom thinks I am almost ready to take my test!!
Mom also takes me loads of places for socialization. I don’t really know what that’s all about, but it MEANS that we get to go to all kinds of cool places! We like to go to dog-friendly restaurants every week, and I get to go anywhere that dogs are welcome! My favorite places to go are Buzzberry, Julios II, and any pet store (they always have treats!!).
I hope you guys will stick with me on my journey, and help me spread the word that pit bulls can be loyal, loving and very CUTE dogs!
Love and licks,
