Facts about Nutmeg
Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix
Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
I am already spayed.
Nutmeg can't wait to find her special furever family. This pooch is super sweet, but can be a bit shy at first, but warms right up with a little bit of time. Nutmeg is a loving gal who enjoys getting love and attention. She doesn't seem to mind being around other dogs, but we recommend she meet any potential furry playmates before adoption.
Wallflower Shy yet charming canine searching for patient owner with relaxed lifestyle. Looking for gentle guidance to help me come out of my shell. Treat me sweet and kind and I'll blossom.
I'm A Shy Dog! I'm still adjusting to this big place they call a shelter, so my behavior here is a little quiet and reserved. Once I'm in my new home, I may relax immediately and become much more social, or I may need a little more time and patience while I come out of my shell at my own pace.
