Agatha - Adopted on 7/11/2020

Age:  About 3 years
Gender:  Female
Breed:  Pitbull Mix


Agatha is a survivor, literally. She survived being on her own for 2 years as a "community dog," until she was finally brought to the shelter. She had been roaming a neighborhood, living on handouts and probably being occasionally provided shelter, and she was the subject of numerous "found dog" postings, but no one ever responded to claim her. Once she arrived at the shelter, thanks to a microchip, her former owner was found and notified, but because of changed circumstances they were not able to take her back.

Despite what must have been a hard 2 years, Agatha is a sweet, gentle dog who bonds closely with people once she comes to trust them. She is housetrained and walks nicely on a leash. She looks to her person for guidance and affirmation that she is doing the right thing. Agatha would probably be fine as an only dog with someone who is home a lot, or in a home with a confident, friendly male dog. She looks to others for leadership and reassurance. She is shy and a little nervous or anxious in new situations and when meeting new people, and for that reason should go to a quieter, patient home with older or no children. She doesn't seem to understand what toys are, and the first time she was given a soft comfortable bed she seemed amazed that something like that existed.

Agatha is a sweet girl who deserves to be someone's beloved companion, not just a community dog who survives on scraps and handouts.
