Betty is in a foster home, and is currently not at the shelter. Please find contact information at the end of her story. Hi, my name is Betty and I'm one year old. Even though I'm a little shy everyone always stops to meet me and tell me I'm pretty. I didn't even know it! Once I have a chance to sniff you (I just have to make sure you smell right) then I like you to pet me and possibly give me a treat. That's because I'm both food and people motivated. I'm starting an obedience class tomorrow and not to be cocky, but I think I'm going to be an A student because I'm so smart. I just seem to pick things up really quickly: crate training, sitting at the door, potty training - easy for me! I'm excited to learn some fancy new leash skills, which is one thing I need to work on. It's weird how sometimes on walks you can't run as fast as you want. Even though I'm small for my breed I'm still a medium sized dog and it doesn't seem right that I am not supposed to be a lap dog. I try to do this anyway. My foster brother is a Boston Terrier and he's not as young as I am, but we do have a good time. Sometimes when I'm too playful he yells at me, and I always listen because I'm polite with other dogs. I think I take to dogs quicker than most people, but once I get a person's "smell" down I'm like their best friend. I'm still getting used to those tiny humans. I'm ok with the medium tiny humans (11, 12+ year olds are fine) but the squeaky ones make me a little nervous. I'm working on that with the help of my foster parents, but until I'm not afraid of the squeaky sounds the tiny humans make I shouldn't live with any. Since I'm such a sweet, beautiful girl I was wondering if you wanted to adopt me. I will promise to get you in shape since I need a lot of exercise. Then when we get home I also promise to snuggle and give you kisses. That's one of my best talents. Please be my mom or dad. . . . . Love, Betty If you don't have Pit Bull breed experience, please do some research before inquiring. Some great resources include Pit Bull Rescue Central (PBRC) and BAD RAP . Please note that Pit Bulls do best as either an only dog, or, with a compatible dog of the opposite sex, in the home. Thanks!
