My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Hi there! I'm Sapphire and I'm really happy to meet you! I was brought to the shelter in July of 2021. I came in with a bunch of other Pit Bulls, all of which have been adopted. I don't really understand why I am the only one still here. I am a lot of fun! I really like playing in water, so if you ever wanted a buddy to go swimming with, please take me! When I'm not playing in the pool I like to keep active in other ways, like getting the zoomies and sprinting around or playing with toys. While I am a super sweet girl, I will need an experienced owner to continue to work with me and get that energy under control! Because of this I would not do well in a house with children, as I can get very rambunctious. I am also dog selective, but not necessarily opposed to a furry friend! However, I cannot go to a home with cats! So, if you have the space for my energy and the patience to help me channel it into other activities I'd love to meet you! I am a super sweet girl.
