|Breed:||Terrier, American Pit Bull
|Current Weight:||48 pounds|
|Date of Birth:||08/23/2009|
|Age:||3 years, 9 months|
A fearless girl, she loves to explore new things and is full of confidence that she can cope with any circumstances - even her first bath in her foster home. She hopped right in the tub.
She loves children of all ages and is perfect for a home with kids - but probably will do best as the only pet. Cats and other dogs are not her favorites, although with patience and socialization dogs may become acceptable to her.
Greta is affectionate and caring. Any sign of distress in her humans rouses her to concern and sympathy. Yet she's secure and independent - she'll sit with you happily, but prefers her own bed.
It should be noted that Greta has tested positive for heartworms. It's a treatable condition, and the cost is covered by APA! donors! You can read about heartworm treatment here: http://www.austinpetsalive.org/heartworms/
An energetic, but relaxed and laid back girl, Greta with her beautiful colors and deep brown eyes will be an asset to any home, and especially one with children playmates.
