A162801 Have you ever seen a smile so big? Rizzo is a spayed, 50 lb female bully breed mix that at just 1 1/2 is already far wiser than her years. Rizzo is a bit of a `chicken little` but when she relaxes, she''s a goofy, playful character. She might be afraid of her shadow sometimes, but she''s just so darn cute we forgive her for her `sky is falling` antics. She recently completed 10 weeks of basic obedience training at Taylor Correctional Institution through our UTOPIA program, and she really knows her stuff! She''s just returned from a foster home where she is keeping her skills fine tuned. She''s crate trained, and ready to go home now!

If you are interested in meeting Rizzo, please contact our foster coordinator at and she will put you in touch with her foster mom!

Act quickly to adopt RIZZO. Pets at this Shelter may be held for only a short time.
