Sugar Plum *Sponsored Fee!*

Pit Bull Terrier

Medium  |  Female

Media, PA


Meet sweet, silly Sugar Plum, a one-year-old pup who loves affection and attention, toys, and cuddling for petting! You can see me enjoying playing with my stuffed lion here - Sugar was rescued from an overcrowded local shelter and is so excited to be in the safe and loving environment of Providence Animal Center! She has some hearing loss, so a big, overcrowded shelter was a particularly scary place for her. As she decompresses here, she is showing all of us what a sweet dog she can be, and we are figuring out how best to communicate with her (it turns out low pitches, high pitches, and hand signals work best). We believe that Sugar Plum is house trained and she knows some obedience commands too. She is sometimes a little bit high energy, and we think she would do really well with people who could either give her a fenced yard to run in or regular exercise. And Sugar so far seems not to be interested in living with other furry creatures, though some of her responses to them may be due to a strange environment and the disorientation involved in not being able to hear them fully. The staff here has learned a lot about those things that are likely to help Sugar Plum thrive (like the noises that she can hear best) and she, in turn, has been learning about checking in with her human when she’s out on a walk and how to walk nicely on a leash. It is time, though, for Sugar Plum to find her own forever home, for her to learn new things with a person or family that can be devoted to her and to building her confidence and trust, and for her to be able to bestow some of that love that and affection that she so clearly has on a person who will love her back to the great extent she deserves. She's ready to be the dog of your dreams so come on down to the Center and ask to see Sugar Plum - and get ready to fall madly in love!

*One more thing! Sugar Plum is loved SO much that a generous donor has sponsored her adoption fee! That means she can become part of your loving forever family for free!*

Providence Animal Center is funded solely by adoption fees and donations. Adoption fees vary per animal, please call the Adoption Center and reference this animal's ID number in order to obtain accurate fee information. The system requires that we choose a predominant breed or breed blend for our dogs. Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed blend. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.
To foster or adopt this dog please call Providence Animal Center at 610-566-1370 during adoption hours. You may also email Can't foster or adopt? Donate to help our homeless pets,
