POW! Look Up ‘Sweet Dog’ And You Might Find Sally’s Picture

“Dogs have a way of finding the people who need them.” –
— Thom Jones, American fiction writer

  • KCAC’s Adorable, Adoptable Pet of the Week is written by Tecla Metzel of Kane County Animal Control.

Look up the phrase “sweet dog” and you might find Sally’s picture right next to it.


Sally is a 2-year-old spayed brown and white Pit Bull with an outgoing personality that lights up a room. Upon first meeting, however, she might appear a bit timid but she quickly warms up. Her instincts move her to greet each person like a politician working the room, taking time to sit in front of them to get petted and have her belly rubbed.

Then she moves on to the next person, asking for the same pets and belly rubs. Pretty soon she has met everyone and is now holding court in the middle of the room, surrounded by all her adorers.

Sally has high energy although she enjoys steady walks where she can sit down midway through and ponder her environment before she continues on.

She likes other dogs, but may prefer to be the only dog unless she can pretty much ignore them. In order to help Sally understand the rules of the road in her new home, it’s strongly suggested that she get some training. She’s definitely willing to listen and learn, especially since it will give her the time to bond with her new fur-ever family.

Sally knows she has a diva personality and she absolutely likes it that way. Why share the love when she can have it all to herself?
