Name: Elinor
ID: 46114647
Breed: Terrier, American Pit Bull / Mix
Gender: Spayed Female
Age: 2 years 2 months
Size: Large
Location: Dallas
About Me: I'm a fun, sweet pittie mix who loves people and toys! You can often find me walking around proudly with a toy in my mouth. I love to cuddle and have no idea that I might not be the appropriate size for a lap dog...if it fits I sits! You'd better love doggy kisses and be willing to share your couch and bed. If not, we probably aren't the best match because I'm the most affectionate girl!

Skills: I know sit, how to walk on the leash and am crate trained, and potty trained!

Foster Testimonial: "She is so lovable and wants all of your attention. She is so smart and sweet and is so happy. Plus when she is calm, she literally bothers no one."

My Dream Home: I'm not picky. I'd love a house with a yard or an apartment with an active owner. I'd love to be your exercise buddy, but dog parks aren't for me.

Dogs: No thank you- I'm all the dog you need! I usually ignore them on my walks, but don't want to share my home with them.

KIDS: Due to my exuberant, energetic nature, I may be too much for small humans- 12 and up for me please!

SPECIAL NOTE: I'm available for a test drive through a trial adoption to ensure we're a pawfect match!

The SPCA of Texas completes rigorous medical and behavioral testing on every animal in our care. The organization fully discloses all known medical and/or behavioral conditions, including any incidents of biting or violent behavior toward a human, to all adopters and fosters. Despite the rigorous testing our veterinary and behavioral professionals conduct throughout every animal’s stay in our facilities, other new and/or unknown medical and/or behavioral conditions may manifest in any animal at any time. By adopting or fostering an animal from the SPCA of Texas, adopters and fosters acknowledge at the time of adoption or fostering that they may receive an animal with an undetected medical and/or behavioral condition and/or that a new medical and/or behavioral condition may appear at any time in the future. Any pet adopted from the SPCA of Texas can be returned to us at any time for any reason at no cost.
