Adopt a pet
AGE: Precious is a sweet and friendly, spayed, 2-year-old pit bull. She definitely still has some puppy in her and has lots of energy for playing and interacting.
PERSONALITY: Precious loves to hang out with people, bonds quickly and would make a great companion animal. She has a strong prey instinct, so a home without cats or young children is highly recommended. A meet-and-greet with your dog is mandatory as she tends to act dominantly with some dogs. She is OK with being in a crate when left at home alone.
HIGHLIGHTS: Precious is alert and curious about everything around her. She knows her basic commands, learns quickly and responds well to gentle correction and lots of praise. In the right setting, she will be a wonderful lifelong pet.
AVAILABLE: At the Jackson County Animal Shelter, 5595 S. Pacific Hwy., between Talent and Phoenix, open 7 days a week.
COST: Her adoption fee has been paid by a donor, so Precious is free and includes a free in-home session with a professional trainer and a wellness visit at a local veterinarian office.
