BUGS" Volunteer FAV! affectionate, devoted Pitbull

UPDATE Jan 6 TRANSFERRED to Stumptown Rescue
GIVE BUGS time to adjust to her new home. Be patient please.
She needs time to DECOMPRESS. 
Initially, many adopted dogs will be more nervous, jumpy, needy, maybe mouthy or uncomfortable with too much touching; and even house-trained pets are likely to have some accidents in the home before they know the routine. Give them time.

from an MCAS volunteer:

"I love spending time with this dog when on a volunteer shift. She's easy to walk with a harness and also loves playing fetch! She likes her haunches scratched and will lean into you for a good scratch session. She is the perfect combination of play and affection. Cheese may be her favorite treat."

"BUGS" is Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

Hi! I'm Bugs, short for Lovebug. All of the volunteers in the shelter say that I'm the sweetest girl. I love walks and butt scratches and treats. I'm cautiously curious about other dogs and would appreciate slow, careful introductions. When it comes to people, I love pretty much every person I meet. I'm a bit clumsy at times and I have a lot of energy for going on adventures with you, but once I get my wiggles out I'm pretty laid back and ready to settle in for some snuggles. I can't wait for us to explore hiking trails, city parks and the beach! I'd love to live somewhere with a yard or a park so that I can get regular exercise. I'm also really food motivated, especially when cheese is involved, which means that training with me should be a breeze. I already know sit, stay, come and shake, and my new home will likely need to work with me on crate training and some separation anxiety. My time in the shelter has made me very eager to be with people. I am a very strong girl and can become easily overstimulated and mouthy, so I will need an adult only home that can provide me with the physical and mental needs channel my extra energy!
