XENA - ID#A057524

My name is Xena.

I am a female, black brindle and white Pit Bull Terrier.

The shelter staff think I am about 8 years old.

I have been at the shelter since Aug 23, 2020

I am in foster care, but I'm still available for adoption! Please call or email the shelter at for more information. If they are comfortable doing so, foster families may participate in the adoption matching process; after all, they often know the foster animal far better than we do. We do allow foster families to select the adoption applicant they feel is the best fit for their foster pet.

Shelter Staff made the following comments about this animal:
I'm Xena! Upon arrival I was listless and lethargic. After a series of tests, it was discovered that I have Heartworms. I was immediately put on medication and I have started to blossom! My adopters need not fret - the good news is, my whole HW treatment is covered in my $110 adoption fee. With my medical situation in check, now I just need a home to call my own! I do however, appear to want to be the only pet in my home. So if you have one already at home feel free to bring them in to meet before we go home together. I have been a peach during my stay, and don't mind any of my new friends here at NACC. I wouldn't mind a home with children of any age as long as they understand I'm not a trampoline to jump on, or a pony to ride. If interested in adopting call 757-441-5505 to speak with an Adoption Counselor today!
