A volunteer writes: Playful Pita!!! Pita’s such a fun dog, easy in and out of the kennel, and walks well on leash. Pita loves to play, and she humored us by trying out the wading pool in the play yard. Pita learned quickly where the toys are, and took several of them into the pool with her. Pita showed us she could sit for treats and give kisses. Pita is an adorable little girl who’s waiting for a new home. If you’re interested in adopting Pita, please come to the Care Center and meet her.

PLAYGROUP: When greeting a male through the gate, Pita began to growl, bark and avoid interacting. We did not have a novel male to continue with the interaction. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 5/23/2017 During her initial medical exam, Pita allowed all handling. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Pita so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. However, she is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep her engaged and exercised. In the care center, Pita displays as having high energy and intense play with balls. We recommend food puzzles and long lasting chews, along with daily walks, runs, exercise and play to positively direct her energy and enthusiasm. RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
