I am dating myself, but who loved to watch the 80's sitcom, Family Ties? I may share the same name as Alex P. Keaton's sister, but I am much smarter than that MALLORY! I already have my foster mom wrapped around my front dew claw. She thinks I am pretty spectacular and what can I say- I am! My story starts out when I came into the county animal shelter in Southern Indiana as a stray. I was full of milk, but no puppies were found. Unfortunately, this is not uncommon :( I was so shut down mentally and physically, the shelter workers thought that I was deaf. I just didn't respond. It was later found out that I can hear perfectly. I just decide if and when I want to listen. Doesn't that sound like a teenager! I was placed in a foster home in Indiana to help dry up my milk and to bring me out of my shell. When a foster home with Rover Rescue had an opening, I was so excited to make the trip north. I knew my chances of finding an awesome furever home were greater in Illinois. Even though I look like I have Dalmatian spots, I am definitely a Pit Bull Terrier. I have the most adorable ears that just beg for your attention. They are soft as velvet. I weight in at a healthy 54 pounds. The vet estimated that I was around 2 years old. I have been an easy foster so far as I have really great manners. I am housebroken, so it really isn't a big deal that I am not a fan of my crate. I will go in if I have to, but I do need some coaxing and some yummy treats to comply. Once there, I am quiet after I do a whine or two. Since I am not destructive, the only time I am crated is if I am home alone. I do try to talk to you. When I don't get the response I am looking for, I will get a little more demanding and frustrated. You can just hear me saying, "Nobody understands me." Once again, do I sound like a teenage girl? I have the cutest moans and groans when I am fussing. Just like in the Keaton household, I would love to have siblings... with or without fur. My foster home does not have young children, but doesn't see any concerns with me and the younger generation. A fellow canine would be awesome. I was shy around the other dogs in my foster house for a day or two, but once I felt more comfortable, it was game on. I now love to rough and tumble with the 94 pound fellow foster in the house. Check out my video of me launching myself on Red. There has been no aggression between the two of us as we share toys, treats and food bowls. I love to go for walks, but will need a little more practice before I am a pro walker. I don't pull, but like to weave back and forth and get my leash tangled. My favorite place to sleep is in your bed. I do like to claim my half out of the middle and once asleep, I weigh 300 hundred pounds. Just try and move me. The only vice that has been found thus far is that I am very interested in what is left on the kitchen counter. I am pretty sneaky when I help myself to anything of interest. I haven't been destructive, but have helped myself to a slice of bread or two. The theme song from Family Ties states, " I bet we've been together for a million years. And I bet we'll be together for a million more." Will you let me spend the next million years with you?
