Pit Bull


3 Years

Fun, active, athletic and well trained! If those are the qualities that you like in a dog, then Melba is your girl! Melba is currently our longest canine resident. We find that hard to believe since she is so exceedingly well behaved. It is easy to see why she is a favorite among our volunteers. It's a rare dog that doesn't give a pretty good tug on the leash when they start to leave the kennel room but from the moment you approach Melba she is so patient and polite and walks beautifully on the leash. And when it comes to playing ball, she wins the award for most acrobatic! Melba came to our shelter as a stray but it's evident that someone spent a lot of time with her early in life. Her manners are impeccable and she would be a fantastic agility dog. Melba would like to be your one and only, so no other dogs please. Hurry in and meet this lovely lady today! And thanks to the Friends of DCACC Foundation, "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" promotion, Melba along with all female adult dogs and cats have had their adoption fee waived for a limited time.
