Pet of the Week

New Pet of the Week – Gretchen, Gorgeous Gretchen!

Hello there! Gretchen here at The Animal League. I’m looking for a special home that I can call my very own. I am a 9 month old American pitbull terrier blend and I weigh about 46 pounds.  Even though I seem timid and shy when I first meet you, I am fine when I get to know you a little better. I love to play on the floor with toys, especially the fun ones that squeak! I am very lovable!!  I would love to go home to a family that does not have younger children, or any other dogs in the home because I love all the attention and the toys! I adore my family here but I would LOVE to meet you!  If you think Gretchen would be a good fit for your family, please give us a call!
