|It would be helpful to know where this dog is located. A reputable pit rescue organization might be your best bet. The problem is, as other posters have mentioned, that it is difficult to adopt out healthy 16 month old pits with no bite history. There is just a huge glut of them in shelters across the country. Whatever you do, please fully disclose the dog's history, especially if a rescue is willing to take him on. It's not easy to find a rescue that's willing...I missed what your position is, are you currently working with/for a rescue that has taken this dog temporarily?
My best friend has four pit bulls. She was dropped by her homeowner's insurance after they did a drive-by, the dogs did absolutely nothing wrong they just didn't want to carry the risk. It took her awhile, but she was able to find another insurance company that wanted her business. This man might be able to find one, too. But it sounds like the dog is better off out of this neighborhood, all things considered.
Check out pit bull rescue central's site here (close any spaces) http://www.pbrc.net/breedinfo.html
They are a wealth of info on pit rescue, how to adopt out, how to find a good rescue org in your area, where to turn when options seem to be few etc. Best of luck to you in finding this dog a home.
Invisible fences are not a good option for this breed. People view and treat them differently than other dogs and they need to be kept safe from idiots like that girl.
