ELLA – ID#A084828

I am an unaltered female, brown brindle and white Pit Bull Terrier mix. The shelter thinks I am about 7 months old. I have been at the shelter since Jan 27, 2018. This information is less than 1 hour old.

Shelter Staff made the following comments about this animal:


Formerly named Gingerella, this sleek shiny youngster has a beautiful cinnamon-brindle coat. She has old leg injuries that have since healed, but give her a bit of an odd gait. She doesn’t seem to be in pain nor do the injuries keep her from being quite active. She seems a bit insecure but responds very well to a loving touch. She’s rather small-boned and probably will stay fairly small. She is very sweet and a decent leash walker.

  • looks like a killer

    • Oh shut up already. Your pointless comment does nothing to help find a home for this pup or any other.

      • your wrong! This animal looks like a killer! Thats a fact. It should be put down. Not all dogs need good homes. All pit bulls should be outlawed and any aggressive dog should be put down. This dog should be put down. I am sick of liberals like you who bleed your heart to this cause. Its not fair to regular people who have common sense.

  • Are you saying you are a regular person with common sense? I have two dogs that have pit in them. Very mild mannered peaceful dogs. Not a liberal dear just don’t label all dogs, as with people, the same just because of breed or color of skin. Sounds like you may have some issues friend. Looks like a killer? Bleed my heart. That’s quite a leap from just a few words but okey dokey. Whatever you say. I know a few humans, if I were to follow your thoughts, that should be shot because they look like a killer. You may be one of them killer lookers!
