A volunteer writes: PLAY BALL!!!! Royale is just in time for baseball season. She has the most adorable fascination with balls. I took her out the yard and before she did her business she grabbed the first ball she saw and then ran to the grass and did her business all while holding the tennis ball in her mouth; when I stopped laughing we played ball for awhile, she then happily sat for treats and enjoyed being petted. Royale is an all around great dog who loves playgroup. Watch her videos below and come see her for yourself at the Staten Island Care Center.

Royale is a 2 year and 5 month old female Pitbull mix that has no past or current medical issues that the owner is aware of. Owner has had Royale for 2 years but had to surrender due to moving.
According to the owner, around strangers Royale is friendly and plays gently with adults. She has been around a 3 year old child and was always relaxed and respectful around the child. Owner did not have any other animals in the home but did state that Royale’s littermate would frequent the home from time to time and they would play exuberantly with one another. She has never bit another animal or person while in the care of the owner.
When there are fireworks outside or when unfamiliar people approach owner’s home or yard, Royale will bark. She is not bothered by having her food, treats or toys taken away, being pushed off furniture, having her nails trimmed, being held/restrained, or if someone disturbs her while she is sleeping. Royale is afraid of being given a bath and will try to run away.
For a New Family to Know:
Royale is described as friendly, affectionate, playful, excitable and independent. She has a high activity level and loves to play with balls, stuffed animals, squeaky toys, chew toys and kongs. In the home, she liked to follow the owner around from room to room. Royale was kept mostly indoors only & is not house trained. She has accidents several times a day where she urinates and defecates in the home. Owner used to put wee wee pads down on the floor but stated that Royale would tear them apart. When Royale was left alone in the home, she was always well behaved. Owner has never tried to leave her alone in the yard so behavior is unknown. Owner stated that Royale is crate trained and would spend about 6 hrs a day in a crate without any issues. She knows the commands sit and come. For exercise, Royale was taken on slow walks on the leash and brisk walks on the leash. When on leash, she pulls very hard. Owner was unable to walk her off leash as she would keep her distance and be hard to catch.
