Suri is hoping against hope that somebody out there spots her and just knows she’d be a welcome addition to their household. But unless someone steps up to foster or adopt Suri, the shelter won’t consider what a great girl she is—they’ll just end Suri’s young life. Please we just need 1 person or 1 family - just 1!!!
Suri was found roaming the streets of an inner-city, taken in for a few days by good samaritans who hoped they'd find her family but when they could not, they brought her to a local shelter which also happens to be a high-kill shelter. For no fault of her own, Suri sits now on death row:( Shy, sweet and so precious, this well mannered young lady truly needs a rescuer! Without a foster home or forever home SHE WILL DIE TOMORROW, 9/27 at 12PM!!! Please don't let that happen!! Apply to foster or adopt Suri today!! She is waiting, wishing, wanting for you to please save her!!
My name is SURI. I am a female tan and white pit bull. The shelter thinks I am about 2 YEARS OLD. I came in the shelter as a STRAY.
Suri came into the shelter as a stray, so her past behaviors in a home are unknown. Suri was apprehensive about interacting with the councilor and would pull away when the counselor approached, but when given a couple seconds and with a slow approach Suri allowed counselor to handle for intake.
During SAFER Suri was playful and relaxed she had a loose body posture when interacting with the assessor, she allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Suri was relaxed during the tag interaction, and during the resource portion of the assessment. Suri was easy to handle when engaged with the item. Suri appears to be sociable, and did not display any behavior concerns, so the department feels she can be suitable for an “Average” adopter.
