    Pets of the Week, Jan. 4-11

    Tuscany

    Breed: Terrier, American Pit Bull / Mix

    Age: 5y 4m Gender: Female

    Color: Brindle / White

    Spayed/Neutered: Yes

    Size: Medium

     

    “This gal has some unmatched beauty, just look at that beautiful coat! Tuscany can be found resting in her kennel with her kennel mate, but when you appear with a leash, this laid back princess is ready to go. She is easy to handle and walks very well on a leash. Her favorite activity is wiggling on her back in the grass, snorting like a little piggy the whole time. She enjoys her peanut butter treats, but never begs. Tuscany came to us pre-programmed; she already knows basic commands. I think Tuscany would be delighted with a family that would welcome her clownish and entertaining personality.”

His tail continuously wags when he meets other dogs. He is a calm and gentle natured guy that just likes to hang and chill. He is super snuggly and will climb right up into your lap and push his sweet muzzle right into your neck. Thorpe would probably enjoy the comfort of another dog friend.”
