I know what you're saying, that's not the 6'5" 200 lb guard, Courtney Lee of the Memphis Grizzlies. Of course, we know that. Clearly Courtney Lee (the dog) is a short, white girl, who likely has no idea how to play basketball. (We are just guessing, she's demonstrated no ball interest...while it's true, we have only tennis ball test her, we still believe she's not going to hoop it up with you. )
But, just like most people/dogs in life, we are all much more alike that we are different....I'll explain:
Courtney (Ball) Lee: had a game winning goal at the buzzer to beat Sacramento by 1 pt.
Courtney (Dog) Lee: had a game winning save by some rescue ladies to save her life with moments to spare before she was moved to euthanasia.
Courtney (Ball) Lee: Led the NBA in mid‐range jumpshot percentage (.507) and pull‐up shooting percentage (.528)…
Courtney (Dog) Lee: Led her fellow kennel mates in how long she was allowed to stay alive at MAS.
I believe you see where I'm going with it - sure she's a short, stocky white girl, with no ball handling skills, and yes everyone would assume that a pitty girl should have a laundry list of things they can do, and she does. She was confiscated as a part of a cruelty case and sat on hold at Memphis Animal Services for months. Sat in that kennel, just smiling, never once complaining. And the odds were not stacked in her favor - a 4 year old, pit bull in Memphis Animal Services - a shelter who's director has said, "Kill 'em all" with reference to pit bulls. Things were grim for Courtney Lee, but she hung in there and day after day she showed everyone the beauty she possessed. Here's what she does well: She prances and smiles. Grit and Grind Miss Courtney Lee, nicely done hanging in there and making everyone fall completely in love with you.
Courtney's (dog) Lee's adoption fee $200 and includes spay surgery, microchip, and vaccinations. If you feel like you handle all the happiness, all this love to give, email us at email@example.com and ask for an adoption application.
