What a face, huh? And what a smile! Faith, a pit bull, is a perfect-sized young girl who’s a big, big favorite of the shelter’s volunteers. She is about a year old and weighs about 45 pounds. We’re all absolutely amazed – and more than a little saddened – that Faith hasn’t been snapped up already.
Faith was given up to the shelter because her family, who had her since she was 6 weeks old, was no longer able to properly care for her. She is housebroken, and has lived with a cat and small children. Faith is friendly, active, smart, obedient, affectionate and playful. The previous-owners claimed they had “never seen anything make her mad,” and neither have our volunteers. (Read some volunteer quotes below.) This gal is consistently very friendly toward others dogs and happy to stick tight to the side of anyone who pets her. She has been gentle and well-behaved with every child she has met. Additionally, she has shown no food aggression. Faith had received a wormer plus bordatella and distemper vaccinations when she was given up to the shelter on Feb. 5, 2016.
Will Faith find her furever home? We certainly hope that a dog this calm, friendly and well-mannered does – perhaps through your gracious charity.
FREE TO A RESCUE: Faith’s heartworm test and microchip will be paid [Faith by your side with copy] by Friends of AACAC thanks to a generous supporter. Her other pull fees have been waived by AACAC.
Here are more comments from three of the volunteers who walk and spend time with Faith:
“Super easy to walk, which is so unusual for us. Very calm and quiet outside of the cage.”
“Very sweet, super friendly – she's a giant lap dog once you get her out of the cage. She goes straight for your lap.”
“As soon as she sees the leash, she sits and puts her neck straight to be collared. She sits on command. I agree that she is happiest in your lap. Very friendly, does not jump, easy to walk.”
