Let’s paint the town red, with Red, our Adoptable Dog of the Week! This cheerful gal is a young Pitbull Terrier from Calgary, Alberta. Red is spayed, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Red’s Tale:

I’m just here for the cookies! You’re my ideal person if your favorite club in school was the Book Club, and your favorite food is anything yummy and smelly. We might match if you have some anxiety too, because we might just understand each other a little better than others.

Would you be my friend if I told you that, even though I can be really shy or nervous, I try really hard to be the best I can be in everything? Men are a little scary but I try to warm up to them if they are patient with me, I’ll be the Shadow to your Pan, the Tongue to your Peanut Butter, the Wag to your Tail! There’s a thing – is it called children? Anyway, what is up with them? They’re weird and little and fast and scary!

Would you be willing to come and spend some time with me? I need to make sure you’re good people, I’m sure you understand! I also go to some classes, I think the humans called them “Confidence Classes”, once or twice a week – here’s what happens: I go in a big room, and I get tons of yummy treats! Easy, right?! I would love to attend them with you too! My favorite place I’ve ever been is a lap. I’m not your usual party girl, I’m happy to be at home with a lap, but I do try very hard when I’m taken out for new, positive experiences. OH… and hiking… I love that!

Want to come hang out with me? I’ll share my favorite treats!
