Guinness, a female pit bull terrier, has been at the shelter for over two years -- the longest out of all the dogs.
We have seen many dogs come and go, have their own happy endings, but poor Guinness remains at the shelter. Waiting for her lucky break. Please, please help us spread the word about Guinness. She deserves a loving home to call her home, finally. She deserves a yard to run around in.
Guinness loves people, knows basic commands and would make a great companion to anyone who is looking for an adult dog who is independent but has a playful nature.
Guinness has beautiful markings that match her personality. She is very playful, full of affection, and very sweet. Guinness may also mean "World Records", but this dog does not want to hold the record for longest stay at the shelter!
Guinness is a great all-around dog who loves her toys, but is not the least bit toy aggressive. She is the living definition of a "people-dog"and is also a lap dog, so brace yourself! She would do best as an only-dog, and is not fond of cats or small animals. Guinness is a high energy dog, very athletic and loves to play fetch. She will bring the ball back to you every time.
According to shelter volunteer Tina Aronson, "Guinness is such a sweet little Pittie. She has been at the shelter far, far too long. So many other dogs have come and gone since she arrived, but for some reason, Guinness is still waiting. Despite her time at the shelter she is always so happy to see people and grateful for a walk or run in the yard. I hope some kind soul will open up their home to this well-deserving little girl."
PROFESSIONAL EVALUATION: Good with kids. Not for families with cats. Good on a leash, but would benefit from additional training. Fine with other dogs. No food aggression issues. Great for someone who likes a dog with an independent but playful nature.
