This adorable little lady with the happy smile is Karma! She's a Pit Bull Terrier Mix who's approximately 2 years old, spayed, current on her vaccinations, house trained, crate trained and she likes hanging out in her crate, especially with toys or a Kong to keep her busy. She gets along great with dogs and cats of all sizes and hasn't met any children yet.
Karma was dumped on the streets of Jefferson County with a friend of hers and a kind person tried to help them. After a few unsuccessful tries, Animal Control was contacted and they picked the two dogs up. Karma wasn't happy there and she wasn't doing well in that environment. Our Vice President worked hard to get her released so we could get this sweet girl the love and care she deserved! She has problems with her vision, which our Veterinarian is trying to figure out. Her vision is limited in one eye and she sees shadows in the other eye, which tends to make her scared when she's approached quickly by strangers or if she walks up on an object she can't see well, especially at night on a walk. This makes her a little shy & insecure, and she needs time to warm up to people but once she gets to know someone, she's the most friendly, loving girl!
A total love bug, Karma is a sweetheart who is so easy to love! She's very affectionate and enjoys giving her people lots of kisses! Her favorite activity is snuggling with her Foster Parents, and she has the sweetest way of laying her head down on her Foster Mom's lap that just touches her heart! She loves attention, especially belly rubs, which she'll roll over for, and she's a very happy girl when the side of her head is rubbed & scratched. She sleeps in her crate at night but enjoys taking naps with one of her Foster Parents on their bed, which usually turns into a Cuddle Fest! When it comes to smiles, Karma has a big, happy, beautiful smile that is wonderful to see when you first wake up or after a long day at work! She's so pretty with adorable wrinkles around her nose, she has the sweetest eyes, and she has a circle around her right eye that just adds to her beauty & charm!
Karma is playful, energetic and has a great time with her Foster Family's big dog, wrestling and playing around. She loves tennis balls, and chew toys are her favorite type of toy, especially Nylabones and Kongs filled with peanut butter! She likes to hang upside down with her mouth open and you can't help but laugh because she looks so happy! It's a lot of fun to watch her play as she really enjoys herself! When it's time to relax, this sweet girl likes to hang out on the couch with her Foster Family's dogs, both big and small!
A smart girl who listens very well and learns quickly, Karma pays attention when learning commands. She knows Sit, Stay, Down & Free. She's a really good girl who follows commands immediately and will keep the position until she hears the word Free, which means she's released from the command. She loves all treats so a few of those, combined with her eagerness to please, should make teaching her new commands fun! Karma loves going places, whether it's for a long walk or a car ride! She walks perfectly on a leash and she's very well-behaved on walks & in the car! Her Foster Mom will glance at her in the backseat sometimes and see Karma sitting there, with a huge smile on her face! You can't help but laugh at the goofy girl!
Karma's Forever Home will be one that will continue working with her on her insecurities with people and exposure to new environments, which her Foster Parents do, by taking her for walks or visiting parks. Patience and understanding is expected because her vision is limited and at times she gets scared. She does need supervision when she's outside, at least until her eyesight improves, because she might run into something and hurt herself. We recently noticed that this sweet girl can jump really high so it would be best if her Forever Home has a 6-foot fence. Karma is looking forward to being a beloved family member and she can't wait to snuggle with her new people! *Karma's Foster Mom ended up in the hospital and can't foster her anymore so she's been in boarding. If you'd like to foster or give this adorable little lady with the happy smile a lifetime of love, please visit our Foster or Adopt page to learn about our Foster & Adoption Process and fill out an Application for Karma.
