Winnie, who was adopted and renamed Bela (bey-la) was adopted for years and then returned starved and with a horrible skin condition. Bela is now fully recovered from any issues that prevented her from adoption and is now seeking her forever home. She would do best in a home with no other dogs because she was never socialized by her previous owners. She is a very loyal dog, more of a laid back dog who just loves to snuggle and be around you. She wouldn't be considered high energy which is great. She is crate trained. Her biggest fault is that she is hard to photograph so you don't get to see the pretty brindle markings in her coat. She really is a lovely girl who just needs a chance to live with a committed family. Bela has also been attending training with a professional to brush up on some awesome skills.
She has had a blood panel and heartworm/lyme testing done and all came back with no abnormalities or concerns. She is spayed, up to date on vaccines and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $100
3-16-11: This wonderful, sweet puppy is with a litter of 5 gorgeous females that were turned in to GTTD rescue from a local WNY family that had an unplanned litter. They owned the Mom, a very sweet female brindle Pit Bull, and the Father was a neighbors male XL brindle Cane Corso Mastiff.
