About Kyra

Pit Bull mix
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Female

Adopter needed (I don't know if I'm dog friendly I didn't even get a dog to dog eval because shelter is full and overwhelmed.) One of the saddest reasons a dog can be E-listed is because they are mentally breaking down in the shelter environment. This is happening to me. I can no longer tolerate being confined in this small concrete kennel. I am harming myself in my kennel and it is inhumane to keep me here in this condition| Can someone save my life? I'm calm, gentle and friendly. I am a 4-year-old, spayed, blue and white American Pit Bull Terrier. I came into the shelter as a stray with scratches all over my body, face, and neck. I also had cactus needles in my legs and feet. I had been one of the dogs involved in a dog fight where someone was bitten breaking it up. It is important to know that there is NO information suggesting I was the instigator. I allowed the field officer to pick me up and place me in the truck with no issues. On intake into the shelter, I was wiggly and I loved everyone petting and handling me! I had an upper respiratory infection (URI) at the time of my dog to dog evaluation, so I was unable to meet other dogs; therefore, the shelter cannot provide any information about how I interact with dogs. Just so you know, I am over the URI. Volunteers say I come out of the kennel nicely, walk well on-leash and that I am gentle when handled. The shelter recommends that I meet all family members and that I have in-home training. The shelter requires that I be the only dog in the home and that children in the home be 12+. SO that's all they know about me BUT This is serious! .
