Baheera is of Arabic origin and means beautiful and noble, dazzling and brilliant.
Baheera was brought in by animal control and waited patiently for a familiar face to pick her up, but no one ever came for her. The staff was smitten by her gentle, loving and sweet nature so they contacted us right away. We couldn't see such a beautiful soul be homeless so we came to her rescue. Baheera is a darling of a dog. Whatever family decides to bring her home will be a lucky one.

Fawn liver red; very pretty. She has a little bit of white on the chest and paws and end of her tail. She is average size for a female Pit Bull, Her coat is healthy but will gain in shine as she receives proper nutrition and a pampered life.
Baheera is fostered in a home with a single woman, no kids, and 3 cats. Foster mom claims this sweet girl has been an angel and will be very hard to let go. She wants to be able to help other dogs however, so we all hope Baba will find the loving home she deserves soon.
There is a 4 ft wooden fence in her foster home and Baheera respects it. So far, we have not had any accidents in the house.
Baheera is great on outings and goes in the car and on walks without any difficulty. She obeys basic commands and is very eager to please.
Baba has been ok with the 3 cats she shares a home with but the cats are very dog savvy and have cat-walks they can use if needed.
Bah stays in her kennel like a good girl when home alone and doesn't cause any problem. She does get excited when greeting people, which is pretty typical with Pit Bull dogs, and might jump up a bit. That's pretty much her worst behavior and nothing that can't be fixed. Baheera is a smart girl and with some work we can make such a small bad habit a thing of the past.
Baheera is very friendly and fun-loving. She enjoys attention and to be near her loved-ones. Her level of energy is medium. Snuggling is her number one priority but she likes to play too. She absolutely loves to cuddle and be petted.
We haven't figured out toys yet, but we are working on it. She does like to lay in the doggy pool and fresh up.
Behavior with people:
Baheera loves meeting new people. As explained above she gets a little too enthusiastic with her greetings sometimes but she calms down quickly. Once the happy-joy of saying hello is out of the way, the next step quickly becomes to steal all the loving she can get. Baba's pleading eyes are very hard to resit. Oh and she smiles too!
Behavior with children:
Baheera has only been introduced to older children and she has done great. We believe she could fit nicely in a home with respectable children. She is a little sensitive so for her sake, gentle children are preferred.
Behavior with other dogs:
Baheera needs to be an only pet. She's a doll with people but not fond of other dogs. Note that its often the case with Terriers, Baheera would do better in a home that doesn't have neighbor dogs sharing a chain link fence.
Behavior with other animals:
Baba gets along fine with the cats in her foster home for the most part. They even occasionally share a bed. That said, if the cats run, she might chase. The cats have a catwalk she cant reach and they know how to get away. We would consider her so-so in a home with cats. It depends on the set-up and if the cats are dog-savvy.
Baheera doesn't so much care for the squirrels in the yard but is not out of control about it.
Baheera appears to have had some previous training. She is very eager to please. She can sit when asked, shake, lay down and she will always come when she's called. We are working on staying down when greeting people. She is well trained to her kennel and will go to it when asked. She is housebroken and doesn't appear destructive.
Baheera is the sweetest dog! She wants lots of attention, but is fine to lay near you. She is quite the snuggler.
