Suki (ID# 1774781) is 1 year & 6 month old, female Brown brindle & white American Pit Bull Terrier mix weighing 60 pounds. Suki is a sweet loving somewhat shy/sensitive girl looking for someone she can devote her life too. We think Suki would like a calm quiet home as that seems to be the environment where she is the happiest. She loves people that are kind and gentle with her. Some movements cause her to duck down as if to be hurt. She loves to sweet talk, affection and just being with you. She enjoys walks and is pretty good on leash when she is lucky enough to get out daily. She has a cute little boxer looking mouth with a little under-bite. She has a little spunk but mostly wants to sit next to you for petting or if you sit on her level she will roll over for a belly rub which is just the best in her opinion. Our staff says Suki should be fine with children 15 or over that understand how to be gentle and not pushy with their best friends. She will need to meet any dogs in the home prior to adoption or… Suki would love to be your only fur-kid and be the only one showered with all your love. If you are looking for a best friend to share walks, Netflix movies, reading time and quiet moments with then Suki is your match. Come in to the Eastside shelter, 8920 to meet her. Ask to go to a quiet area. She finds the kennel building a bit loud and not ideal for a meeting.
Protect your pet during Monsoon season and thunderstorms: Storms can be frightening for many pets. When a storm is forecast to roll through, remember to bring your pets inside, provide them a safe place to feel comfortable, and absolutely make sure they’re micro-chipped. The best way to connect you and your lost pet is through them being found, scanned for a microchip and then they can quickly return to you. Some pets need a bit more help during a storm even when indoors. While in that safe comfortable place leaving a radio or television on to mask the thunder may help. Some people close drapes to mask the lightening. A spray of lavender on their bed and a thunder shirt may also help. Even animals that have never shown fear of thunder/lightening previously may panic during a particular storm or situation and then they flee from their back yards due to fear. Being indoors is safest and microchips are a life saver.
