Facts about Indigo

  • Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix
  • Color: Tricolor (Tan/Brown & Black & White)
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Indigo is a Pit Bull Terrier-mix, female, 10 months of age.

Shortly after intake to animal control, Indigo exhibited symptoms of Parvo virus, a potentially fatal intestinal infection. She received medical treatment and supportive fluid therapy for the life-threatening symptoms, as well as for Campylobacter, another serious intestinal illness. Fully recovered from both illnesses, Indigo is now ready to move on to a new home and welcoming family.

Affectionate and attentive, loyal and loving, friendly and eager-to-please…this sweet and sincere, very endearing pup is going to form deep bonds with family members who reciprocate the warm-hearted allegiance she offers. A very beautiful and people-pleasing young dog, Indigo absolutely craves human companionship, and she thrives with lots of close contact and loving attention. Wanting above all else to be welcomed into her new forever family, Indigo’s looking for people who she can shower with love...there may be some doggie kisses involved, too!

Just a little bit on the shy side and still sometimes unsure of what to expect from people, Indigo has experienced some harsh treatment in her past life. A good-natured, extremely social and sincere young girl, Indigo needs a responsible, caring owner worthy of her trust and on-board to help boost her confidence by providing safe opportunities for her to meet new people and master new activities and situations.

A total sweetheart who wants little more than to please her people, it is abundantly clear this delightful darling of a dog was born to be a joyously happy, self-possessed, and confident family companion and pet. Ready to take her place as such, Indigo is looking for the structure a good leader provides including daily routine, appropriate social opportunities, and behavioral boundaries – the things that all dogs need and deserve from their owners.

Upbeat and trusting by nature, always enthusiastically eager to please, Indigo will do her utmost to comply when she understands what is asked of her. An intelligent, quick study who enjoys learning and revels in praise for accomplishment, Indigo needs regular mental stimulation as well as physical activity to stay happy and healthy. A combination of leashed walks, interactive play sessions, obedience training, and outdoor romps and exploration on her own and with family members in a securely, enclosed area will meet most of her pretty modest exercise needs. And no doubt, this fawningly devoted little girl is certainly up for any and all family adventures too!

At the close of day, Indigo will appreciate the tranquil, reassuring security that comes from snuggling-up close by on the couch or cuddling with beloved family members while contently drifting off to sleep . . . happy . . . safe . . . comfortable . . . thoroughly loved!

Indigo is best suited as an indoor pet and companion for a home with a moderately-active lifestyle. While we think she’ll get along well with a compatible, similar-sized dog of the opposite-sex that she has been properly introduced to, a home visit and a meet-n-greet with any housemate pets will be required prior to adoption. A well-mannered, outstanding, total-package family canine, Indigo is also well-mannered around children of all ages, and she’ll do well in just about any home where children and pets alike are taught to respect boundaries and interaction is monitored as it should be.

Indigo is a Monroe SPCA adoptable dog who currently resides at Monroe County Animal Control located at 911 S. Raisinville Rd, Monroe, MI (just south of the fairgrounds). Come meet him during kennel hours Tuesday - Friday, 11:00 am - 3:30 pm; Saturday, 11:00 am - 2:30 pm, closed Sunday, Monday, and National Holidays.

All Monroe SPCA dogs available for adoption at the shelter have an adoption fee of $120.00. This fee includes the dog being spayed or neutered, HW negative, up-to-date on age appropriate vaccinations, and micro-chipped prior to adoption.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process starts with filling out an Adoption Application on the animal you're interested in adopting. Once we've received and reviewed your completed application we’ll contact you, usually within 2-3 days (remember, we're all volunteers). Our adoptions are best-fit placements, meaning we strive to ensure a good match for both, the animal being adopted and the adopter.

Our adoption fee for dogs and puppies is $120.00 to $200.00.
Our adoption fee for cats and kittens is $75.00.

Adoption fee includes the animal being spayed or neutered, up-to-date on age appropriate vaccinations, and micro-chipped prior to adoption as well as all dogs being Heartworm negative or receiving treatment for Heartworm.
