Girl (A19168517) here is looking for a home. She is a 1-2 year old, brindle and white, medium sized, 40 pound, Terrier, Pitbull Mix. Did you see her ears, look how they stick up like that. This cute Girl was surrendered to the shelter and has some hair loss and is a former mama. She is really silly and happy. She just cannot wait to get your attention and kiss and rub her self on you. Girl has a fun personality and she seems to go by the "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" motto! Girl could benefit in a home that will dedicate time to train her not to be so jumpy. She is so loving and very dog social. She has met a few dogs and is looking to play with whoever she comes across. Please bring in your whole family including the dogs to meet with Girl. If you have cats we can cat test her in front of you so you can see how well she does. Looking for a fun dog that will have you entertained? Then stop in to meet Girl!
