Facts about Chula

  • Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier Mix
  • Color: Gray/Silver/Salt & Pepper - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Chula was surrendered to our shelter with her 2 puppies because their owner was moving and could not afford to keep the dogs. Chula is 6 years old, and is a beautiful American Pit Bull. She is very friendly with people, and loves to play and spend time with our staff and volunteers, even when we want to play dress up with her!

Chula is very active and enjoys playing outdoors and going for walks in the woods on our dog trail. She enjoys her toys, and is very smart and knows how to sit, shake, lay down and roll over. She is leash trained and house broken as well. Chula is always eager to hang out with our staff and volunteers. Due to her higher energy, she will need a new home that can give her daily exercise through walking/hiking or have a fenced yard for her to run around and play in.

She will need to be an only pet despite living with another dogs in her previous home. She started to become more dominant-aggressive with the other dog after she gave birth to the litter of puppies. We will be testing and working with her to see if she will accept a submissive type male dog again. Chula has not been around younger children, so we are only willing to place her with children over 10 years of age.

Chula has been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, tested negative for Heartworm and Lyme Disease. She is ready to be adopted to a new home. If you are interested, please contact us or stop by and ask to meet her.

About Tri-Lakes Humane Society

About Our Shelter...

"We speak for those who cannot" has been our shelter's motto since 1973. Since 1942 our members and staff have rescued homeless and unwanted pets, and placed them into new and loving homes.
In 1998, our board of directors voted to become a "no-kill" facility. "No-kill" means we do not euthanize healthy & adoptable animals to make room for new arrivals. In 2001, we moved to our new facility at 255 George Lapan Hwy in Saranac Lake, NY. Since our big move, we have rescued and adopted out over 3000 animals and reunited over 1000 pets with their owners.

We are very involved in our local community, and we have a Humane Education program and we travel to local schools to educate children on proper animal care, the importance of spaying and neutering, and how to be kind to animals.
Our Spay/Neuter Assistance Program provides financial aid to low income pet owners who need help affording the cost of the surgery at local Veterinary Hospitals and Clinics.
We also have a Trap-Neuter-Return program to help local community feral cats.

The Tri-Lakes Humane Society employs an Animal/Dog Control Officer, and contracts with local towns and villages. Our Dog Control Officer is in charge of enforcing the local Dog Control ordinances. From time to time, we also become involved in animal cruelty cases and assist local law enforcement with their investigations.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption Applications must be submitted and approved prior to adoption of any animal. You can view our Adoption Policies and application form on our website:

Our Adoption Fee for dogs/puppies and cats/kittens is $77, which covers the spay/neuter cost, microchipping and registration, as well as all vaccinations, flea treatment, and wormings.
The Adoption Fees vary if the pet was already spayed/neutered and vaccinated prior to arriving at our shelter.
We also have a Seniors for Seniors adoption program. If a person over 60 years of age opts to adopt a pet over the age of 7, all adoption fees are waived.
