Hi there, I'm Fortis. I am 5 years old, 45 pounds, female Red Nosed Pitbull. My Foster Mom calls me a snuggle bug because as soon as I meet someone, I back up and lean against them for snuggles. I love to go for walks and let the neighborhood kids give me hugs and belly rubs. Sadly, my life before being saved by Angels Among Us was not as happy. I was found on the side of the road after being thrown out of a moving car and left there to fend for myself. When the police came to remove me from the road, they realized that I was still alive and took me to the shelter. I had a broken back and needed surgery to have the chance to walk. On February 17th I had surgery to fix my broken back. I'm doing much better now, and I am learning how to walk and play again. I walk nicely on a leash and love to sleep in my crate as long as I have some soft blankets to snuggle with. I would love to play with my small & big foster 4 legged siblings, but on top of everything else I am Heartworm positive. I'm not allowed to get too excited, so we just say HIYA through the baby gate. Cats are not a good idea for me because I like to chase them!  I'm available now for pre-adoption and will be available early June to go to my forever home. I can't wait!
