1 1/2 year old pit bull terrier mix, spayed, up-to-date on all vaccinations, chipped, very healthy. Shakira is a sweetheart and thinks life is a game and everyone wants to play with her. Loves babies and balls and playing with other dogs and kids that can keep up with her. She loves to run outside and will let you know if anyone comes near the house but only barks and keeps her distance, she is very sweet and will not hurt anyone or another animal. She loves coming in the house and currently sleeps in a kennel inside at night. She also loves to chase squirrels up a tree and try to follow them on the limbs. She's high energy and needs someone who can give her as much human play time as possible. She's very spoiled however and will cry if she's alone outside too long with no human or another dog to interact with. She is afraid of thunder and heavy rain and will beg to come in when they start. As much as we love her we are very soon having to care for my elderly and weak mother and are concerned Shakira's energetic playfulness may accidentally hurt my mom which is a chance we cannot take. This is a heart breaking decision for us and we hope and pray that we can find Shakira a new home where she can continue being loved, spoiled, and cared for as she is accustomed to here!
