When I'm in a bad mood, I like to look at the dogs up for adoption at my local shelters. Without fail, it always gives me a smile.
Yesterday I was in quite a snit, so I looked at the Animal Welfare League of Arlington's Website and found this little ray of sunshine:
This gorgeous girl's name is Memphis, and she's a pit bull mix (shelter ID A032386). She's four years old and really tiny-- just 29 lbs.
Here's AWLA's write-up on her:
Look at that sweet face and her neat eyes! And check out the gorgeous new picture they posted of her today. Those ears are priceless! If my building allowed pit bulls, she'd be home right now. I am madly in love with her. I desperately want her to find a good home.
If you live in Arlington County, VA or have exceptional experience with pit bulls in other parts of Virginia, DC, or Maryland (or even know of a great rescue that could be a stopping point to her forever home) and have a Memphis-shaped hole in your life, please please PLEASE call the Animal Welfare League of Arlington at 703-931-9241.
