Here is the ad on petfinder:
Another Pit Bull in an animal shelter! For those of you who love and respect this often misunderstood breed, we offer Galy She is healthy, energetic, and in desperate need of a home. She is about 3 years old and is only $30 to the right home. Please note: due to the VERY busy nature of the shelter, it is best not to email us! Call, or better yet, visit us! We are open every day of the week except Friday. Thanks for looking!
And here is the "inside scoop" that you didn't see in that ad:
Galy is a 3 year old female pit bull that is currently at the Steamboat Springs, CO shelter. She has been there for 3 months and her time is running out. Shelter staff love her and she is a real sweetheart. She's not dealing well with being cooped up in the kennels for so long so she gets very excited. She recently bit one of the shelter staff because she was so excited. It was more of a nip but since it broke skin she had to be placed on a 10 day bite hold. Now her chances of getting out of the shelter have been reduced. She needs a rescue or an experienced person that can take her and work with her. The shelter staff really do not want to see her euthanized because she is a very sweet girl, just gets too excited.FB page HERE
This is what the shelter manager wrote about Galy and the bite incident.
I wasn’t working the day the bite occurred, but from what I understand, Galy got overexcited while on a walk. She tends to revert to her “Tasmanian Devil” side when she gets overexcited—she is NOT mean, but she just doesn’t know what good manners are, is stubborn, and doesn’t know how to stop! When she gets over-excited, she can look and sound really bad—I’ve had to calm her down before. Usually prevention is the best strategy! We’ve been working on her manners (jumping up, dominant behaviors, etc.) since she’s been here—and she’s come a long ways—but one wrong person getting her amped up and…a bite. It was a nick on the finger, but it broke skin, and our ACO was obligated to write a report. However, with our shelter a bite and a 3-month stay are really starting to look dangerous for her. She is 3-years old, she is spayed and up to date on all of her vaccinations. I will keep you in the loop on Galy, but I will say that I am trying to get her placed ASAP as I am only one on the shelter team, and she may be the next “up for discussion”. (And…*shhhhh!*…I’m the more lenient one.)
If you can help Galy find a new place to go please contact Janel at the Steamboat Springs Animal Shelter,
If they adopt her out, it's going to really start looking dangerous for others as well. If I were paying taxes in this town, I would be PISSED that my money is paying for this.
