National Pit Bull Awareness Month Wraps up With Successful Adoption Event

October is National Pit Bull Awareness Month. While we love Pit Bulls all year long, we tried extra hard last month to find homes for these sweet doggos. We’re happy to say that both our Culver City and Lakewood locations adopted out wonderful Pit Bulls.

Our efforts culminated in Dogs on the Job, an adoption event on the 29th in partnership with Angel City Pit Bulls, Karma Rescue and Wags and Walks. We match 18 pets with families, and more than 3 of these animals were Pit Bulls and Pit Bull mixes! Read on to learn more about some of our favorite happy endings from last month.


princess pit bull

Princess came to us on October 18th from Palmdale Animal Care Center. The Center is over 60 miles away from Adopt & Shop in Culver City, but 4-year-old Princess was worth the drive. We immediately fell in love with this sweet Pit!

Princess lived at our Culver City location for 10 days before being adopted. And we couldn’t be more pleased she found her furever family. Her tan fur and white markings are cute as can be. Her paws even look like little white socks.

We just knew she’d make an amazing family dog. This gentle submissive girl is such a lovebug. She’s happiest when pleasing her people. She follows your lead instead of being stubborn and defiant like some dogs. Princess also adores getting lots of belly rubs. This 57-pound dog is truly a couch potato. She’d rather chill out than go hiking or run a 5k.


charles pit bull

You truly missed out if you didn’t get a chance to meet Charles at our Lakewood store! He hails from the Downey Animal Care center and he’s perfect proof that not all Pit Bulls and Pit Bull mixes look alike. Charles is what we call a “lowrider” and has short little legs in comparison to his sturdy keg-like body.

This boy is only 3 years old and has so many happy years ahead of him now that he was adopted on the 29th. He’s more the soulful type and much more mellow than some of his doggie friends. Like Princess, he loves to just hang out. We’re sure his owner is enjoying lots of quality cuddle time with this 45-pound darling.


skipper pit bull

Skipper arrived at our Culver City location all the way back in July, but her lucky day didn’t come until Friday the 13th last month! This photogenic dollface absolutely won our hearts and we were so happy when she finally found a home. Also 4 years old, Skipper was a staff favorite this year.

If Skipper’s light tan fur doesn’t catch your attention, surely her personality will. She’s a happy-go-lucky Pit Bull who relishes the little things in life. She’s a sunbathing crowdpleaser who enjoys the company of children and other dogs. She has excellent leash skills and is happiest when devouring peanut butter Kongs!

Convinced a Pit Bull is right for you? We’re inclined to agree! These big snugglers make excellent companions and we they’re frequently available for adoption at our Culver City and Lakewood locations. So stop by and meet your new best friend!
