The golden one. A feminine given name from the Latin family name Aurelius, which was derived from aureus meaning "golden".

Background Info:


We found this little beauty at the local pound. Her amazing appearance caught our eyes immediately but her sweet nature was the deciding factor when selecting a dog for our program. We have asked for information regarding her background and will update her bio once we know more. We are unaware at this point, if Aurelia was a stray, an owner surrender or confiscated by animal control. 

Adoption Fee: $150
Breed:  Pit Bull
Sex:  Female
Age:  1 to 3 yo
Weight:  50L to 60Lbs
Color: Rose Gold

Health Condition:

Healthy, spayed, up-to-date on vaccinations and ready for adoption. 

Physical Description:  

Aurelia's coat is recuperating from poor care and neglect but she's already a little beauty. She has the most unique coat color, which resemble rose gold. Striking! This precious gem's ears are cropped rather short and a little unevenly but it doesn't make her look mean. She's way too sweet for that and you can actually see her loving nature in her eyes. 

Aurelia is slightly on the small side for a female but not far from breed standard. 

Living Situation:  

Aurelia is adapting to her new life at MPR shelter and doing great. She is calm, quiet and patient in her kennel. We give her non-stuffed but thick blankets to prevent chewing and decrease anxiety. She is getting used to her situation a little more everyday and taking shelter life in stride. 

Aurelia has quickly figured out how to maneuver through the doggy-door and keeps her inside kennel clean. We had a few accidents in the playrooms when she first arrived but we are confident she just needs a little time to catch up with the rotation routine at the shelter.


Overall, this gorgeous girl is well behaved and suuuuuuper sweet. She has already made her way at the top of the favorites' list with the volunteers.



She is as sweet as she is pretty. Need we say more?


No kidding. This princess is an adorable angel, well behaved, easy and fun-loving. She is coming out of her shell a little more everyday, and we can tell there's a happy, silly princess in there. She is pretty easy-going, and very affectionate. Her level of energy is moderate and typical for the breed. She's is slightly on the submissive side, at least as of now, and very eager to please. 

This dog wont be with us very long. She's too irresistible inside and out. 

Behavior with people: 

Aurelia loves everyone and is comfortable with all humans without discrimination. We are still getting to know her but as of now, we only have great things to say about this awesome dog. She's a people-dog who promises to be a great breed ambassador. 


Behavior with children:  

Aurelia hasn't been exposed to children since being with us. We dont anticipate any problems though. She is well balanced and well behaved. A home with children should be suitable for this sweet lady. 


Behavior with other dogs:  

We haven't introduced Aurelia to other dogs yet but we were told by the local shelter where she stayed for a few weeks that she did well in play groups. She was also briefly fostered in a temporary home with other dogs and proved no problem at all. We cant guaranty her future behavior, but we are hopeful she could share a home with a compatible male provided the owners understand the breed well. 


Behavior with other animals:  



She knows sit. Right now that's about it but we are working on teaching her more commands. She is naturally easy to handle. House breaking is in progress. We believe she is crate-trained but cant confirm for sure. 

Best Attribute:   

Hurry because this little princess wont be with MPR very long. She's one of those dogs that make us wonder what her previous family was thinking when they abandoned her. She's about as pretty as they come and her behavior is just as amazing. Pictures dont capture her beauty, charm and loveliness. One meeting and you will be as smitten as we are.
