Could You Be Fanta's New Family?
June 27, 2009: Been A While
So I've known about this dog for a few months. Her photos just make my heart ache and I really wish I could bring her home and give her the life she deserves. Unfortunately my husband and I live in a small condo with three small dogs, and we just can't have another one right now, especially one that will need a lot of exercise and play time.
My contact at the DC Animal Shelter told me that they have had Fanta since March and is the dog in most need of a home:
“She came to us because while her owner moved, [she was given] to a friend and the owner never came back for her. She has been here since March. She’s great outside her cage–she loves to play, loves balls and squeaky toys and has a ton of energy. She needs to find a home that will give her the basics of training and will give her plenty of exercise and lots of affection as she LOVES getting snuggles."

The Washington Humane Society
Fanta is a pit bull terrier mix, still a pup at just under a year old. She is already enrolled in the Washington Humane Society's In-House Training Program where she is learning basic obedience to give her a great start in her new home!
I have tried my best to spread the word with my friends, on Facebook and on my blog, hoping that someone will snatch her up and give her her forever home. I am hoping that there is a Hubber out there who might be able to do that.
