Adoptable Dog of the Week- Tequila Sunrise

A big smile and an even bigger heart- this girl with an unusual name is looking for her family! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Tequila Sunrise, a 2 years old American Pitbull Terrier mix from Richmond, Virginia. This charming little lady is spayed and up to date on her vaccines. Tequila Sunrise gets along with dogs but would prefer to be the only pet in an adult only home.

Tequila Sunrise’s Tale

With her charming personality and stunning looks, it’s truly a wonder that Tequila Sunrise doesn’t already have a furever home. This adorable Pittie mix gal could be the perfect pet for the right person- she’s extremely affectionate and loyal to her humans. She’s big on cuddling and will love to be by your side. While she’s not high energy, she is an active, playful and curious dog that would love to go on adventures with her new family. Tequila Sunrise adores going hiking and long walks are one of her favorite things ever. She’s also a silly pooch and will always try to get you to play with her.

Even though very friendly with humans and super cuddly with those who are close to her, Tequila Sunrise is not a good fit for families with children or other pets. She likes kids well enough, but the combination of her size (48 pounds) and food guarding issues, she is not a good match. Similarly, she gets along with other dogs, but her friendliness is reserved for superficial contact- she doesn’t like rowdy, pushy pooches who try to play ruff. Ideally, she would get to be the only baby of the household and have pawrents that would pamper her like she truly deserves.

Tequila Sunrise has been waiting too long for that special someone to give her a forever home. If you think she sounds like a perfect fur baby for your family, make sure to contact Richmond Animal Care and Control for more information.
