Regina the Pint Sized Pit Mix – ADOPTED
6/2016 UPDATE: ADOPTED!!
UPDATE: 4/1016: Moved to a rehab facility, and living happily ever after with other dogs. See her UPDATED STORY here.
UPDATE 3/2016: FOSTERED – Regina waited THREE years, and has finally found the opportunity to live in a real home. We gave her foster mom an Easy Walk harness, Gentle Leader harness, dog tag, poop bags, sweater, and more – as part of our Foster Starter Kits with Operation Foster Bound. Thanks, Margie, for fostering this special dog. Regina is up for adoption, living in Brooklyn!
REGINA is part of our NEW Operation Foster Bound, and will get lots of special treatment once you bring her home as a foster dog – READ MORE!
Looking for a foster home or adopter. 3 years old, 35 lbs. Female Shepherd/Pit Bull Mix. Good with other dogs her size and kids. Stressed at shelter, needs experienced foster home soon. Scroll to bottom of this post for contact info.
From the shelter: Regina is getting very stressed at the shelter and we would love for her to find an adopter or foster. This incredible pint sized pittie has been with us for over two years, that is more than half of her life. When we first met Reggie, she was a very aloof girl, but she has come so far and is now a very social girl who will even give kisses.
Despite the hard work and dedication of our volunteers and staff, Regina’s behaviors are starting to regress at the shelter. She is easily overstimulated and is more interested in retreating to her kennel than meeting new people. It really breaks our hearts as we know Regina is sweet as sugar and so bright! Regina walks so well on a harness and knows all of her basic commands (though she pulls on the leash, so practice will make perfect). She has the most soulful eyes and will constantly look back at you when on her walks.
Because Regina has been at the shelter for a while and has forgotten how to be a regular pet, her foster parent needs to be patient until Regina is ready to be stroked and possibly cuddled. It’ll be a slow process, but worth it in the end!
Regina is a shining star, yet she is constantly overlooked. Please help us change that! Help us find an adopter or foster for Regina! Please note that Regina would be best suited in a home without other animals or small children so that she can be the center of attention!
Regina is spayed, dewormed, treated to prevent fleas & ticks and up to date with vaccinations.
