Story
Temptress is an 8 year old PitBull mix. Temptress came to us with some skin issues, but she has since been treated for it and isn't bothered by it anymore. She seems to get along with other canine friends, however if you have one we would require a meet and greet with them. She would do best in a home without young kids. She is a very sweet girl and loves to hang out with her people. Temptress seems to be housebroken. If Temptress seems like a dog that would fit in your life, fill out an app at apl-shelter.org or call the shelter at 217-544-7387 and schedule a time to come meet her.
