Little Miss Allie-Gator lost her home when she was about 6 months old because her family was not able to handle a puppy who required quite a bit of time, attention and training. MPR gets a lot of dogs at that age, when people realize they wanted a puppy but were not prepared to face the challenge of a teenager pit bull.

Allie is fostered in a home with 2 older dogs. Her foster dad is a dog trainer and Allie is proving to be one smart cookie. Allie enjoys playing in the backyard, which is enclosed by a privacy fence. She sleeps in her crate at night and is crated when no one is home.
Allie is a happy and energetic little lady, full of life and fun. She loves attention from people and other dogs as well. She is a typical pup who likes to play, play, and play some more. She loves to be outside and in the middle of whatever is happening. She is a teenage dog and might try to test what she can get away with but she does respond to structure. For some, she might be too smart for her own good. For many however, this smart little lady is FULL of potential.
Allie benefits from positive but firm and consistent leadership. Her foster dad is helping her learn good adult doggie behaviors, but still can’t help but laugh at her antics. She’s a riot! Patience and a good sense of humor is a must with teenager Pit Bulls.
Note: We think Allie has the personality; eagerness for fun, intelligence and drive, to enjoy doggy sports such as Agility or Freebee.
Behavior with people:
Allie does NOT know a stranger! Her curious, silly nature compels her to try to meet (and love on!) everyone she sees! She is super outgoing and can’t believe someone would not want to be her friend. She jumps up a little when meeting people but foster dad is working on teaching her good manners. A work in progress. Allie is a smart little gal, eager for structure and leadership.
Behavior with children:
Her energetic personality might be a bit too much for toddlers or little children. We think she would thrive in a home with older and active children. A dynamic family would be ideal for her. She loves being the life of the party.
Behavior with other dogs:
She loves to play with other dogs but her energy might be a little overwhelming for older dogs. A home with a compatible, young doggy-brother would be great for her. She is very outgoing with both people and dogs. She is slightly on the dominant side and will probably want to be top queen as she matures so she will not be placed with another female.
Behavior with other animals:
Allie seems quite interested in cats and squirrels and her foster mom believes she would do better in a home without cats.
Allie is housebroken and crate trained. She knows some basic commands and is very eager to learn new things!
Allie's love and exhilaration for life will keep you smiling. She is super smart and outgoing and a real little social butterfly. Allie might still have a little more growing up to do, but she is on the small side. She’d make a great partner for someone who likes going on long walks or even on short runs. Her happy face and bright eyes will never let you down!
