This Girl Needs A New Home Soon, Or Else ...

A cute, affectionate black and white dog was found wandering around Clinton. Madison police officers are trying to help find her a forever home. If she doesn't find a new home soon, she will have to be killed.


This information is from the Madison and Clinton Police Departments:

The Clinton, Connecticut Animal Control Department is looking for a forever home for a female canine.

The canine is believed to be a pit bull, is approximately 1-2 years old, had a litter of puppies at some point, approximately 35-40lbs, brown and white in color, a short / fine coat, friendly with humans, loves attention from people, affectionate, pulls slightly on leash but settles in after a few minutes of walking, has no name, appears to have basic obedience (sit, stay, paw), no known health problems, and not spayed.

The Clinton Animal Control Officer found the canine wondering around the town a few weeks ago, it is believed she was dumped or abandoned.  The canine is currently being held at the Madison Police Department dog shelter and is visited several times a day by the Clinton Animal Control Officer, Madison Animal Control Officers, and many of the Madison Police Officers.

The Clinton Animal Control Department will supply a voucher for a spay, and two vaccinations upon adoption.  There is a $50 fee required upon adoption.

Anyone wanting to meet the canine is welcome to do so prior to making any adoption decisions.

"I personally stop in to the dog shelter and visit the canine ever day, she is a sweetheart and would make a great companion.  The canine has pulled the heartstrings of many of the Madison Police Officers and I have made it my mission to do all I can to find this sweetheart a forever home," said Madison Police Officer Alex Blackwell. "If your have any interest in adopting this canine or would like to help the Clinton and Madison Animal Control Officers find a forever home for her please let me know."

Unfortunately this canine’s time is limited, if an adoption isn’t made she will be put down.

Anyone needing more information or with specific questions PLEASE call 203-245-2721.

Hi Sue - I can't answer your question, cute as it is!! :) My dogs love cats, so maybe this little girl does. She's so young. Best thing to do if you are interested in adopting her is to call the number at the end of the article and leave a message with your name and contact number. They'll call you back. Thanks!!

I called the number and they didn't know what dog I was talking about, but I'd like to know if she'd get along with other dogs and how much longer until she's euthanized. Thank you! =)

Selena - sorry to hear! Call again and say it's the young, female pitbull with no name, the one Clinton animal control found in Clinton. I don't know if she'd get along with other dogs, but if you leave your name and contact info, they'll call you to "interview" you as a potential adoption family. And as far as the timing on the euthanization, they are not releasing it. But with all the calls coming in, her adoption is looking good.
