There's no place like home, and I am ready to find mine! My name is Dorothy and I'm an adorable pittie mix, estimated to be about 4 years old and 58 pounds, who is available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation. I'm a silly, active lady who enjoys running and playing in a fenced yard, and I get along great with other doggie friends. Since one of my favorite games is chase I would do best in a home without cats, but I would do fine with older kids who can handle my jovial personality. Once I'm tired out from our fun, I am an excellent cuddle buddy and hope you have room for me next to you on the couch! I'm potty and crate trained, too. Please fill out that adoption application soon, because I am ready to follow the yellow brick road to my happily ever after with you!

If you'd like to adopt this dog, please get started by filling out a complete application (incomplete submissions cannot be sent.) Please note that while we take time to learn as much as we can about each dog in our care as possible, our bios are written from current observations. Though we do our best to share as much information as possible about each dog we care for, we are unable to make any guarantees on the future health or temperament of your adopted dog. Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history, and information pertaining to breed and age are often educated guesses.
