My name is Barbie. I am an approximately 4  year old female pit bull mix.  I am a big, beautiful blonde and I am full of energy.   Tug-o-war is my favorite game ever, but I also like to play fetch and chase bees.  I am just learning to play with other dogs, so I would do best in a home with no other dogs and no cats.  I am very strong and still learning to be calm, so I shouldn’t be in a home with children under 12.


A kind lady rescued me from a really bad living situation, but I quickly proved to be more than she could handle.  I was completely unsocialized, had absolutely no training and was starving for attention.  She called Speranza to see if Janine could help, and that same day I was in Janine’s car heading to the Speranza farm.  I got a solid week of flea treatments to get rid of all the fleas covering my body and some time to decompress. Life has been good ever since.

Truth be told, I need some work in the obedience department and an experienced handler.  I take treats nicely and am  food motivated.  I need a home where I will be able to run and play a lot because I need to get all this energy out before I will be able to focus on training.  I really like going for walks, but I need to learn how to walk at an acceptable pace.  I also have a tendency to leash bite when I get over stimulated.
