I am a 2 year old, Female, Pitbull Mix.


Look at that happy face! Mercedes is an affectionate girl who came to us when her previous owners sadly fell on hard times. Mercedes has a heart of gold and nothing but love to give everyone she meets! She was very scared when she first got here, but in no time she has come out of her shell and shown off just how darling she is. All she wants is to be loved on! Mercedes will make a wonderful family dog, and would be a great choice for a first-time dog owner, as she’s easy to handle, so loving, and easy-going.

Mercedes is dog selective, and in her case that means that she does not get along well with female dogs. Mercedes did test heartworm positive, but all of her treatments will be covered and taken care of by the Humane Society. Mercedes currently weighs about 63 pounds. She is in a foster home, so if you’d like to meet her then please submit your application and we will arrange with her fosters to bring her in to meet you.

A good write up on Mercedes from a volunteer:

“Sometimes families come into the HSWC looking for a certain dog, maybe a certain look, or size, energy level. Sometimes they just want to meet some dogs and see if there is a connection. If we could order a family for sweet Mercedes we would order a work from home situation or maybe a retired couple. Mercedes loves being with people and has been with her people a lot. She can be ok by herself but loves her people. Also good with all ages of kids. She needs slow introductions with men. She would like to be the only dog. She has had some bad experiences in her past with other dogs. We want a stress free life for her. Both of her owners have slipped away from her, I’m sure she wonders where they are… she can get very attached to anyone who shows her love. Please consider meeting Mercedes. She is such a special love bug.”
