I am a 1.5 year old, Spayed Female, Pitbull Mix.
Attention Adventure Seekers!
Do you want a dog who will be your sidekick on adventures? Running, rollerblading, hiking, bicycling, camping, canoeing, boating, or just plain walking . . . Almond Joy is your girl! Her small, compact size (about 40 lbs.) makes traveling easy. She loves the outdoors and would make a great companion for an active owner.
Almond Joy is a 1 year old, female pit mix, but we think she may be part deer. Check out the unique markings on her back!
She is very affectionate with her humans. This girl definitely knows how to love. Big hugs are her favorite. Lately, Almond has spent a lot of time walking and playing with other dogs. She gets along with every dog she meets, but she is dominant with her play, so she would probably do best with a submissive partner if you have another dog in the household. The shelter staff and volunteers are teaching her how to have manners when she plays; before the shelter, we don’t think she had much structured interaction with other dogs. We have her labeled as no cats, but lately she doesn’t seem to mind them too much. She seems more curious than anything because her exposure with cats has been limited.
Another favorite of Almond’s is car rides. She loves to look out the window and watch the world go by. But if you take her for a ride, you must stop at her favorite restaurant, Burger King, and get her some nuggies.
Unfortunately, the staff and volunteers have noticed a sadness with Almond lately. She’s been at the shelter for a few months and she keeps getting picked over. Although she’s happy that her friends are finding their forever homes, she’s ready to find hers. She hates going back inside her kennel and will do anything to stall. When she’s lying in her kennel, the sorrow in her eyes is evident, and we would all love to see Almond find that perfect family to call her own.
*I am currently in a foster home that’s teaching me how to dog. I’m being crate trained and love spending time with my foster family, especially the kids!
