Adoptable Animal of the Week: Friendly Pit Bull

Can you give this sweet girl a loving home?

This young, friendly female Pit Bull is looking for her forever home.

She was found in Levittown on the side of Hempstead Turnpike by an employee of in Malverne, where she has been staying every since. The staff tried for weeks to locate the dog's owner but were unsuccessful so now this sweet girl is up for adoption.

The dog is about 1 to 2 years old and has already been spayed. She knows sit, stay, and gives her paw on command. She's housebroken and walks well on leash.

This dog is very friendly, playful and great with other pets and people.

"Her temperment is 'lovey dovey,'" says a staff member at Assisi. "We haven't had her around kids, but have no reason to believe she wouldn't be good with them."  

If you're interested in adopting this dog, stop by Assisi to meet her in person anytime or call them with questions at 516-256-0022.

As the owner of a lovable pit bull myself, I encourage people to open their minds to this wrongfully maligned breed. The pit bull is a wonderful dog that is often victimized by bad press caused by irresponsible owners. I hope she finds a forever home soon. Whomever adopts her will not be disappointed.
