Shelter Dog Saturday: Tiara

tiara-shelterdogsaturdayName: Tiara

Breed(s): Weim/APBT Mix

Age: 18-24 months old

Gender: Female (Spayed)

If you’re looking for a plucky young dog with a passion for toys, this is your girl.  Tiara would make an excellent dog sport prospect due to her absolute adoration for toys.  Tiara is around 48 pounds and is pretty standard as far as pittie girls are concerned in stature.

Tiara is currently very dog social and plays well with other dogs and puppies but has not been tested with kitties.  She is also incredibly kid friendly but may not be suited for families with young children due to her high level of energy and typical teenage puppy behaviors where she may tiara1-shelterdogsaturdayaccidentally knock over small children in her quest to play.  This could work in the right home with a bully breed savvy family that knows how to properly work around a boisterous young bully breed mix.

Tiara is crate and house trained.  Her rescuers have been working on her manners including sit, down, stay, come when called and general leash manners.  She responds well to corrections on a leash and loves to learn for either food or toys.

If you are looking for a darling, standard-sized gal to add to your family, we at Work-A-Bull would highly suggest you contact Sheri’s Dog Grooming by phone (734) 457-0755. Sheri’s Dog Grooming is located in Monroe, Michigan.

 

Shelter Dog Saturday: Jewel

jewel-august2013-0207Name: Jewel

Breed(s): American Bulldog mix

Age: 2 years old

Gender: Female (Spayed)

Jewel came into the River Rouge Animal Shelter with her good buddy Thor via the officers of River Rouge.  Unfortunately, Jewel and Thor had a habit of escaping their yard and their owner opted to not reclaim them and instead leave them to sit in the shelter.

Jewel is a happy go lucky gal who absolutely LOVES affection.  She enjoys long walks and has energy that could go on for days if you didn’t want her to stop.  She is very willing to please and has beenjewel-august2013-0204 getting some good basic manners training from the volunteers at the shelter when she is out on the twice daily walks.

Jewel would do well in any home but may be a bit too boisterous for families with young children since she forgets how big she is.  Jewel has shown some mild interest in the cats but with proper introductions should be okay with a feline member of the household.  She would also make a good working dog prospect in dog sports venues as she is social, willing to learn and eager to please and has good drive for toys and food.

If you’re interested in adopting Jewel, she is available for adoption through the River Rouge Animal Shelter which is located at 100 W. Pleasant Street, River Rouge, Michigan.  You can contact the shelter by email at pkelly306@aol.com or by phone at 313-205-1732.

Update: Jewel headed to rescue!
