Bridget needs a home

Bridget is a 1 1/2-year-old spayed female red and white – Doberman Pinscher/Greyhound mix.

Hello, my name is Bridget! I was originally adopted from the Allen County SPCA, then brought back for being too much for my family to handle.

I am a very sweet girl who does require some work. I will need a patient family to work with me on building my confidence and feeling comfortable in my new surrounding.

I do fairly well on my housebreaking, but please be patient with me and give me an adjustment period when I come home with you. The staff recommends you crate train me to help me with housebreaking

and learning the ropes of my new home.

I do not require a fence or trolley to come home with you, but I will need daily walks for exercise to keep me happy.

I am a pretty smart girl who already knows how to sit, but I am sure I could learn more if you spent some time teaching me some awesome new tricks!

The staff feels I would probably do best in a home with children who know how to treat me nicely. I don't seem to mind other dogs and just ignored the kitty during my assessment.

If I sound like the perfect girl for your home, please ask to see me today!

Bridget is available for adoption at the Allen County SPCA, 4914 S. Hanna St. The shelter is open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. For more information, call 744-0454 then choose from the following:
