Adopted October 2016
Dog’s former name Simone
What are the best things about your dog?
Her loving attitude towards people she literally puts a smile one everyone’s face who gets to meet her. She keeps me active and loves getting good exercise together. And she’s the best snuggler around!
Tell us about your dog’s favorite activities, sports or training:
She loves chasing squirrels in the park, of course and a good round of tug-o-war. Also a great running partner she helps pull me along when I’m tired. She’s learning to be a great bike ride companion as well. I hope to start training her for agility or another official athletic activity soon because she has incredible athleticism.
Give us some examples of how your dog likes to spend his/her time:
She loves being outdoors, especially when the sun is out. She likes to curl up and soak in the sun when at home or chew on her peanut butter filled bones. Any time the leash comes out she jumps at the chance to go for a walk/run. Loves going on any sort of adventure and I get her out a couple times every day, she loves it!
Do you have any extraordinary adventures or accomplishments to tell us about?
Nothing out of the ordinary. We’ve gone on plenty of hiking adventures she’s very good at waiting for me to keep up and not running off on her own.
How do people react to your “pit bull?” She’s much smaller than many of the breed so people usually have a very positive reaction. No one seems to “shy away” and her happy tail is quite noticeable so I think people find it easy to approach her.
What other stories do you want to share?
I find it funny how she’s terrified of random things around the house (boxes, newspaper, bags, foam roller) yet fearless when it comes to things that could actually harm her. For example she has zero concern for cars moving at full speed. There was also a time we came across a very aggressive stray dog 3x her size and all she wanted to do was play with him.
Does your dog have any nicknames?
