Angel’s name says it all — she’s truly a sweetheart of a dog. She is 1 year, 7 months old, a mix of Staffordshire terrier and possibly border collie (which would make a lot of sense based on her looks, her love of learning, and her prowess at playing fetch). Angel is friendly, active, goofy, loving, affectionate, and beautiful to boot. She is a favorite of the staff and volunteers at San Francisco Animal Care and Control. Through no fault of her own, Angel came to the shelter because her owner was no longer able to provide her a home or proper care. Because of that she has some hair loss, but now that she’s being treated with medication, her coat is improving rapidly. Angel’s new person or family should be willing to continue treatment and follow-up visits with a vet.
A generous donor has sponsored Angel’s adoption fee and training classes. San Francisco Animal Care and Control (where the Marina Times’ Skylar Grey comes from), is overflowing with pittie mixes right now, so they hope you will come down for a meet and greet and consider giving the pitties the chance they deserve. If you can’t adopt, please considering sponsoring a pittie until it is able to find a forever home.
Some of the most deserving and adoptable dogs at shelters are pittie mixes, and they are often overlooked, so they linger at the shelter longer than other breeds. Many pitties actually make great apartment dogs because they’re quiet, adapt easily to their surroundings, eagerly respond to direction and are just as happy on a long walk at Crissy Field as they are in couch-potato mode.
