I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
This charming little lady with the big, beautiful smile is Stockard. She's a happy girl with a fun, quirky personality and has the most stunning eyes - one is a gorgeous blue, the other a beautiful brown! She's hanging out at our shelter until she finds a foster home or forever home. She's housetrained and crate trained but doesn't need to be crated as she's a good girl when left alone. Stockard gets along nicely with other dogs but prefers to hang out with dogs her size or bigger. She would be happiest in a home that is active and has children over the age of 10. She hasn't had a chance to be around cats yet so we're not sure how she would behave with them. Stockard is a sweet, soft cuddle bug who is very affectionate and loves getting attention. She really loves being around people and tries to get as close to them as she can. She makes the shelter staff laugh when she tries to sit on their lap while they're working or when she tries to wiggle her adorably chubby butt behind them in the chair. She's so attentive and eager to please you can't help but love the silly girl, especially when she flashes her big smile at you and looks at you with those beautiful eyes. Plus, she enjoys giving kisses and they're the sweetest Pit Bull kisses we've ever received! Stockard is a smart girl and knows the commands sit, lay down, off and stay. She's very treat-motivated and her favorite treat is salmon jerky. This gorgeous girl is full of fun energy and needs daily exercise to keep her calm, happy and healthy. She loves going for walks, is good on a leash and prefers to keep a fast pace. She has fun going for car rides and likes to sit in the front seat and look out the window. Stockard has been going to training a few days a week to work on her socialization skills and learn some good doggie manners. She's been doing really well and is already making new friends! She can't wait to find her forever home so she can have snuggle sessions with her new family and give them sweet kisses!
