Her ribs almost pierced her skin; obviously she hadn't eaten or at least eaten well for a very long time. She was a stray; no one missed her or wanted her. Until, that is, her foster found her, and fed her, and named her, and loved her. Now, Fancy Dancer, American Pit Bull Terrier mix, is lovely and healthy, and filled with joy! She is probably between 10 months and a year old, and presently weighs 45 lbs., maturing to the 55 lb. range. Now that she is healthy, Fancy's energy level is on the high side of medium, and she loves playing and walking. She loves all people and gets along very well with her house mates, but she can be a wee bit stubborn, at times choosing not to come when she's called. We think that Fancy Dancer would probably prefer to be the only pet in the house unless the other is a male, equal to her in size and energy level. Although very sweet, loving to cuddle on the couch, she can get carried away in play at times, so we do not want her in a home with small children. Older kids are fine, though! Overall we think that Fancy would enjoy and benefit from obedience classes. In addition to all of her other wonderful traits, she's an intelligent girl who is house and crate trained! Just look at her! It's hard to believe how she looked when her foster found her. No more ribs ready to pierce her skin, no more eyes dulled by hunger. Oh, no! Let us introduce Fancy Dancer, a red and white coated beauty with bright and beautiful amber eyes! (posted 3/20/16, JS, N/A)
**It is rare that we know with certainty the ages or mixes that make up our wonderful dogs, but we do our best to be as accurate as possible based upon our many years in rescue.**
Adoption: $285 which covers quarantine, shots, worming, food, medical records, spaying/neutering, and an Alabama State Health Certificate.
Transport, if needed : $120.00 We consider the transport to be of great importance and, as such, take particular care of the dogs during the trip from Alabama. Heather and David are the owners of the transport vehicle; they typically drive the 22 hours accompanied by one or two foster moms. The trip is punctuated by stops so that the dogs can have some leash and relief time, time to stretch those dog legs, a snack and some water. They make every effort to arrive with healthy and minimally stressed dogs.
