Receive a special discount on the adoption fee by adopting a Pet of the Week!!!

I have been at the shelter for a little while now, and I'm really starting to get worried. Please don't pass me by just because of my breed. I am a Pitbull mix, but I want you to know that Pitbulls make great pets, and we do have great smiles. I am still young, around 2 years old, and I do like other dogs. I have so much love to give and hope that someone will see this and see how cute I am. Please come to the shelter and give me a reason to smile! I am just a little over three months old, and I'm really getting upset no one has taken me home with them yet. Everyone here tells me how sweet and adorable I am, but day after day I just see everyone walking past me. I love to play, and I hope when you adopt me that we can stop at the store for some toys. I like other cats too, so if you already have a cat or two, I would love to have some additional buddies to play with. Please come get me so we can live happily ever after!
