Meet Lila-Great Exercise Partner!

AgeAdult BreedPit Bull Terrier Sexfemale, spayed

Lila is 2 years and 60lbs. We pulled Lila from a neighboring county pound on 10/15. From someone who loves Lila... Lila is an amazing runner. The dog that normally pulls everywhere she goes, maintains slack on the leash the whole run. She loves it and so do I. We started with 2 miles and we will keep in creasing. And I'm proud of her time. It means she was sloooooowing down and running with me cause I'm quite positive she could run a 4 minute mile if given the chance. Lila would be a perfect best friend and running partner for an active person. She needs a savvy adopter just because of the sheer strength she has. However, she LOVES her person and takes direction very well! Come adopt Lila to be your new exercise buddy! She is terrific! All of our animals have a lifetime commitment. If for any reason, the adoption does not work out, the cats and dogs are to come back to FCHS, which is a NO kill facility. The adoption fees help cover a portion of the care provided to the animals. Please visit our website under adoptable pets for a range of adoptions fees. All pets are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested (dogs) and placed on preventative, microchipped, and more.
