Kane County Animal Control Pet of the Week

If you saw a picture of Venus, KCAC's spayed tan and white female Pit Bull terrier-mix, you might think she was cute, or maybe adorable. You are correct with both assumptions!

Meeting her in person is an even better experience. You'll notice her bright and clear eyes as she gives you an immediate smile and her tongue lolls to the side. She knows she has to impress you so she will bounce around as though she has springs on her feet, just because she's meeting you for the first time and she's so happy to get noticed.

Venus Williams, the tennis superstar said, “My ambition is to enjoy my life and to do exactly what I want to do."  Venus1.jpg

Venus the superstar stray was found with her sister Serena and would definitely agree with her namesake. If there's one word to describe the 4-legged Venus it would be “active." Not one to wile away her days playing with toys, Venus is on the go and loves to run.

Her personality is big and bold, and without boundaries, so she will need a family willing to get her trained so she can live up to her full potential. She doesn't mind other dogs and is definitely willing to share the track with them as long as they are patient and energetic.

Venus will be a great dog for anyone who needs a reason to get outside and enjoy the companionship of a wonderful, loving dog who can run like the wind or zoom around the yard.

At the end of the day, a cuddle session will definitely be in order and Venus is perfectly willing to end her day getting spoiled.
