Facts about Betty

  • Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Betty was abandoned and we believe she may have been used as bait in dog fighting. She is not dog aggressive but doesn't trust any dog who gets in her space and will try to defend herself. For that reason, Betty should be any only pet. She weighs 45 pounds but could stand to gain 5-10 pounds. She was born around August 2014.

Betty is relaxed, laid back and sweet. She's easy to walk and gets along with people of all ages but since we don't know her history and know she doesn't like other dogs in her space, we feel she needs to go to a home with only older kids, teen and up.

Betty has heartworms but we will see her through this. Heartworms aren't contagious, you and other animals will not contract heartworms from Betty. They are curable when caught early and show no outward symptoms except in advanced cases (coughing). Heartworms are caused by mosquitoes and are all too common here in the south but are completely preventable with an inexpensive monthly pill. Betty is taking a monthly pill (which we will pay for) until a blood test (which we'll also pay for) shows he's rid of them. This could take 6 months to over a year. We've had many happy adopters who've rescued a heartworm-positive dog. Speak to your vet if you need more feedback.
