As her name would suggest, Big Red is a gal with a gorgeous red coat who is as big in heart and personality as she is in size. Big Red is a fantastic five-year-old American Pit Bull Terrier looking for a family with room in their heart and in their home for this lovable and playful pup. This sweet girl enjoys going for long walks in the neighborhood and spending her free time being next to her favorite humans. Big Red is a fabulous dog who will make a wonderful pet for one lucky family!

Edison-A642889

Hi, my name is Edison and my ID Number is A642889!

Edison is an incredibly handsome Akita and Chow Chow mix with a thick, tan coat and ears ready to listen to every word you have to say. This bold and confident guy has a powerful outward appearance, but inside he’s a total softie that is very loving and affectionate to his human friends. Edison can be a little shy at first, but once he’s warmed up he’s a lovingly independent character looking for an experienced dog owner without young children he can share his big heart with. If you’re in need of a new best friend, look no further than Edison!
