found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
Last and most certainly not LEAST (not by a long shot) of our CYCLE 7 pups is Ms. Muffin (aka Muffin Top, Muffalata, Muffinator). She got this name upon intake at FCAS because some would say her little "big" body looks like a Muffin Top. She is the most loving, cuddliest, sweetest, gentlest, playful pit bull, I (Ashley) have come across. We met her the same day we met Ginger. They were pretty much Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum - Ginger had never had a good meal, and Muffin had never missed one! All Muffin wanted to do when we assessed her was sit in my lap and give me kisses upon kisses upon kisses. She loved everyone, including Ginger, passed her temperament assessment with flying colors!
Muffin came in as a stray, and based on some early milk production appeared to be pregnant. We made the decision to get her spayed early (since we thought it was going to be a spay/abort) and the recovery period would take longer. Ends up that she — like Ginger — had a uterine infection (pyometra), and in the advanced stage that it was, could have been fatal. We lined up an amazing foster to look after Muffin while she was healing from her surgery, and getting healthy enough to go into the jail. On top of healing from a spay due to a uterine infection, Muffin also had a severe URI that took longer than expected to cure. Her foster treated her like the Queen she deserved to be and even got Muffin in the holiday spirit with a tutu (that wouldn't fit below her shoulders). While there she did great with all of the other dogs and was amazing with children too!
Muffin is a 2 - 3 year old, 60 pound short and squatty pit bull, possibly mixed with what could be English bulldog. She has the most gorgeous coat, blue & fawn, in a reverse brindle pattern. She is going to be on a healthy diet at the jail with regular exercise, and she told me her New Year's Resolution is to drop 10-15 pounds She is Heartworm Negative, UTD on all of her shots, and already a favorite with the handlers!
Muffin is part of the Canine CellMates program at Fulton County Jail in Atlanta, GA that pairs inmates up with urgent dogs from the Fulton County Animal Shelter. Dogs must pass a temperament test and then go through a 10 week training course similar to the Canine Good Citizen (CGC) certification.The Canine Good Citizen (CGC) program, established in 1989, is an American Kennel Club program to promote responsible dog ownership and to encourage the training of well-mannered dogs.The evaluation consists of ten objectives. All items must be completed satisfactorily or the team fails. Test items include: Accepting a friendly stranger. Sitting politely for petting. Allowing basic grooming procedures. Walking on a loose lead. Walking through a crowd. Sitting and lying down on command and staying in place. Coming when called. Reacting appropriately to another dog. Reacting appropriately to distractions. Calmly enduring supervised separation from the owner. At graduation he will be ready to go home with his forever home!! Get your application in early, he is one amazing lady!
