Humane Society Pet of the Week

Name: Paloma

Age: 2 years

Color/Type: Black and white/Pit Bull Terrier

Gender: Female

Spayed: Yes

Why she is special: This uniquely beautiful girl is Paloma! She was found as a stray and released to us from a local shelter. The kennel environment can be very overwhelming for some dogs and Paloma is pretty nervous in the kennel. She really wants love and attention and will slowly and gently approach you and bury her head into your chest for some love and pets. Once she is out of the kennel environment, she really opens up and her true personality shines! She is very silly, playful, bouncy and loves playing with toys, especially chasing balls. She needs a family/person that will give her the love she so very much deserves. She is a gentle girl that deserves all the love in the world and will be a sweet, loyal friend to the right person. If you think you are the perfect person for Paloma, come on in, fill out an application, and spend some time with her!

Cost: $250
