ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - ABC Action News works with local shelters to help find homes for dogs every Friday morning our Pet of the Week segment.

This week you have an opportunity to add a young, friendly dog named Sharp into your home. He is a smart 11-month-old Pit Bull Terrier mix looking for a loving family.

According to the American Kennel Club, terriers are intelligent, good-natured dogs who are excellent guardians.

With the help of their “guardian angels,” all adopters of Pit Bulls will go home with a crate, leash, collar, Kong toy, small bag of Science Diet, and a free initial vet visit at Pet Pal Veterinary Clinic where a 1-month supply of heartworm and flea prevention will be provided.

A group training class will also be offered by Pet Pal's certified trainer, Pat McCarthy of Dawgs Dig It, to provide guidance in leadership skills for all family members.

Sharp is neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and dewormed. Thanks to the Pit Project, his adoption fee is only $75. You must own your home to adopt him.
