Pet of the Week
This month's pet, Jada, is one of our amazing Pits and her adoption fee this month is $50. This pretty young dog is a pit bull mix who’s about 18 months old. When Animal Services brought her to the shelter as a cruelty/neglect case, she was in truly appalling condition: She had lost all her hair due to demodectic mange, and her skin was infected, raw and bleeding. She was also very underweight. Thanks to the excellent care of our medical team, Jada has made an incredible transformation and is almost unrecognizable as the same dog who arrived at the shelter almost two months ago. She’s a social, endearing girl who loves people, enjoys playing with her toys, and (not surprisingly!) is very food-motivated. Since she seems very uncomfortable around other dogs and goes out of her way to avoid them, she would be happiest as an only dog. Jada is looking for the loving family she deserves after all she’s been through. Jada lives in kennel 10. For more information about Jada, contact doginfo@apsofdurham.org.
