Petunia is a doll! She was found as a stray in Brentwood and ended up with us at Family Dog.  She is great with all people including children, and she is house broken.  As is true with many adult dogs, Petunia is dog selective and needs proper introductions to other dogs.  She has had several best pals while here at our shelter, but like many pitties, she can get overly excited when playing with another dog so play sessions need to be monitored.  Petunia needs a pit-bull experienced home that will be committed to her ongoing training and socialization.  What you'll get in return is overwhelming cuteness (her photos don't even come CLOSE!), classic pittie love and a dedicated playful companion. Petunia loves attention and loves to give kisses to everybody.  She loves every person she meets and has already stolen many hearts at Family Dog!  She is young, strong and full of life so an active home would be great for her.  Petunia  is ready to meet her Forever Family. If you'd like to meet Petunia, please fill out an application at  A home visit will be required for this adoption.
