Hi again, everyone! It's me, Grace, and I'm svelte, healthy, and ready for adoption. The healthier I've gotten, the more of my personality is shining through.
Am I great? Well, duh... YES!!
Do I have a few preferences? Also a resounding YES!
I have become extremely choosy about other dogs. In public, I'm OK with a lot of them, but at home, I need to be the ONLY pet. No cats, birds, or other small animals either. It's all part of being a Diva. Everything is about ME and MINE. Foster Mom has worked on setting limits, and she says I'll need a home that will keep me well socialized and continue my obedience training. I'm ready and willing to learn.
I love all people, but I am a tiny dynamo with a real lack of personal space awareness, so I would not be a good fit for a home with small children. I'm kinda like a bull in a china shop... I tend to knock everything over. Fun for me... Not so much fun for everyone else.
Be your best friend;
Snuggle and give kisses;
Provide hours of entertainment and loads of adventures;
Love you forever ❤️
It will be very important to keep me exercised and not to give in to my adorable eyes and overfeed me. With all I've been through, being overweight would be very detrimental to my health, so maintaining my ideal weight of 39 pounds is a must.
My ANNA family would like my home to be local so I can attend special events and make celebrity appearances now and then. We want to stay in touch!
So if you are a conscientious, active home with lots of love and guidance to give, call The ANNA Shelter (814-451-0230) and make an appointment to meet me. Let's talk ❤️
Icky was part of a cruelty seizure. Living chained outside, malnourished, this year-old Coonhound mix was skin and bones when she came to ANNA.
Now, restored to health, she is a gorgeous, sweet, ACTIVE girl who loves to give hugs and play, play, PLAY! Icky is extremely athletic, often jumping OVER my other dogs again and again out in the backyard!
Icky is somewhat choosy/unsure about other dogsand new situations, so we are still determining some of her tolerances. Due to her history of starvation, she needs to be fed separately from other dogs and her family should invest in a good go-slow type food bowl. She has successfully transitioned from her very restricted bland diet of boiled rice/beef, to prescription food, and now to a high quality kibble.
We are working on her obedience training. She wants to please and loves her people, so positive attention works as well as treats to motivate her with training.
This smart girl has been through a lot and is so deserving of her own loving home. She will be your best friend and adventure buddy. She will share her joie de vivre with you and make you smile every day. She will love you forever ❤️
If you think Icky will make a good, loving addition to your family, please stop by and meet me!
Hello! My name is Hershey. I am a 5 year old spayed female Pit Bull Terrier mix and I currently weigh 59 pounds. I was recently surrendered to the shelter because my owner could no longer provide me with proper care. I have an anterior cruciate ligament injury and I am currently very overweight which is putting extra strain on my injury. I will need a strict diet as well as cage rest/limited exercise for the next 6-8 weeks in order for me to heal. I am a sweet, outgoing playful girl who would make an excellent family companion. I get along great with most other dogs and children too but I have not yet been tested around cats. If you think I could be the perfect addition to your family please stop by and spend some time with me.

Hello! My name is Chance. I am a 4 year old neutered male Pit Bull Terrier mix and I currently weigh 60 pounds. I was originally brought into the shelter as a stray. The staff was able to track down my owner but sadly he is now incarcerated and can no longer provide me with proper care so I was relinquished over to the shelter. I am a very active, affectionate guy who gets along well with cats but I am very picky about my doggie friends. I do have some experience around children and seem to do well but my high energy level and lack of manners can be a bit much for little ones. I absolutely love to play and I am an excellent hugger. If you think I could be the perfect companion for your family please stop on down and spend some time with me.

Hello! My name is Diamond. I am a 5 year old spayed female Pit Bull Terrier and I currently weigh 90 pounds. I was surrendered just about 2 months ago after my owner sadly passed away. I was completely unsocialized as I have only been exposed to my owner and her caregiver never leaving the house unless it was to go potty outside in the back yard. My owners care giver would love nothing more than to adopt me but sadly he lives in a home that doesn't allow large animals. He still comes to visit me often and I am so happy he does. As you can probably tell by my picture, I am extremely overweight but have made some tremendous progress in the past two months dropping over 12 pounds ( with strict diet and exercise) and coming out of my comfort zone when working with staff and volunteers. I still have a ways to go to get back down to a healthy weight but I am finally on the right track to get there. I get along okay with some other dogs but I am very dominant and always assume the role as Alpha. I have not yet been tested around cats but I would do best in a home without children. I keep my kennel clean and I know quite a few basic commands. I can be timid of new people at first but I do warm up very quickly and I am truly just big affectionate girl longing to be loved! I absolutely LOVE to play outside with my toys ( squeakies and tennis balls are my favorite) and snuggle up nice and cozy to my people! I am searching for a loving, laid back, patient new family to come and take me home. If you are searching for a sweet loyal protective companion I am definitely the one for you...please stop on down and spend some time with me!
