From Angels For Animals:


She sits in her cage waiting…

She stands up when she hears the door to the dog wing open. She looks towards the door. She’s looking for someone. When people stand in front of her cage she gets up and stands at the bars wagging her tail…looking up in their faces. Some look back at her and say kind things like, “Hi, sweet girl.”  “You want a home, don’t you?”

Others just keep walking. She goes and sits back on her bed and waits some more… This happens over and over, all day long. Day after day, and week after week. River has been with us since March.

River needs an adopter with dog training/behavior experience. She has been suffering from anxiety for the past few months and is currently on Prozac.

River is choosy about her dog friends, but definitely does not like cats. She also needs a home with no small children. Every toy she sees, she wants – she can be very excitable and mouthy when she plays.

River has never lived in a home.She was brought to the shelter by humane agents because she was living with homeless people out in the woods. She had been dumped on their property and they had no way to take care of her. Her full history is unknown.

When we took her in she tested positive for heart worm. She has been treated and will continue to be under our care until she finally tests negative.
River is approximately three years old and is a pit bull mix.

She is a complex girl who needs a hero. If you are interested please GIVE US A CALL 330-549-1111 ASK FOR LISA in the dog wing. ***** We cannot possibly read through all of the comments to find the questions that need to be answered. Please call with questions or email Lisa at [email protected]
