DECLAWED 9 y/o Paisley, dog/cat/kid friendly Pit in Indiana!

Why buy from a breeder when there are plenty of homeless pups in shelters???

DECLAWED 9 y/o Paisley, dog/cat/kid friendly Pit in Indiana!

Postby love_gingers » Fri Jan 01, 2010 1:57 am

Paisley has been looking for a home for quite some time so I figured, why not show her off to the PBF members and see if anyone falls in love with her??

Paisley was adopted from a HS in Indiana EIGHT years ago and was 4-paw declawed, yes, declawed by her crazy owner who didn't like the clicking noise her nails made on tile. She was eventually given up by her owner because she was chasing chickens...imagine that! She's now in the care of my friend who is an animal control officer and an independent rescuer.

I can personally vouch for Paisley as I have fostered her a few times and have interacted with her more times than I can count. She is an AWESOME, happy, wiggly, silly pit bull mix. She greets every stranger with a tail wag and body wiggle. She is built like a little 50 pound barrel - she's not big at all, but is round (could probably stand to lose a few).

She is dog friendly - good with dogs of all sizes (is fine with my roommates small dogs!) and is good with cats too! Her one fault is that she is protective of her toys, so toys can't be left out on the floor. Other than that she is an angel. She walks perfectly on a leash and never pulls. She loves to wear sweaters!

Paisley is housebroken and non-destructive. When I have her, she sleeps in bed with me. :) She doesn't go up on the bed without being asked. I live in an apartment and she'd be a fine apt dog. She's not bark-y except if someone knocks on the door. Her energy level isn't too high but she does like a good game of tug once in a while.

She is on meds for hypothyroidism and takes her meds without issue in a piece of cheese. She's fully vetted and has records that go back for 8 years (her previous owner took good care of her in that regard, oddly enough).

So, that's my little speech on Paisley and how awesome she is. If interested in her, you can PM me or email me at SavingHoosierDogs@gmail.com. She is located in Lafayette, IN but doesn't necessarily have to be adopted in that area.

Here's Paisley napping next to Sophie, their butts are touching :) Sophie is adoptable too, and 4-paw declawed also! :(

Crazy OWNER?? What kind of vet agreed to do that surgery??? I don't even do 4 paw declaws on cats unless the owner has a medical issue or its required by day-care insurance companies (stupid stupid, I hate it).

woah! declawed?! I didn't know that vets would even do it on dogs! how horrible, and such a weird reason to do it too. all the lady had to do was keep the nails trimmed. I can't even hear my dogs nails. those paws look naked. poor thing!

she sounds like a sweetie, I hope she gets a great home.

I was wondering the same thing!

She is so pretty. Sometimes I really wish Khan would let me have another dog in the house. Sometimes I am glad he won't lol

Hopefully she won't need this offer. How far are you form Auburn, IN? I'll be there March 20th, and am willing to transport her back to PA for anyone who may be interested, or meet along my route back from pa.

Hopefully she'll find a home loooong before march, but the offer is there if needed.

Unfortunately, I cannot take her. She seems like an awesome dog. I love the oldies. What part of Indiana is she in?

someone posted about another dog with that earlier this year.

I want to say the owner might have had thin skin and could not handle scratches?? or something like that, still weird...


never seen it... it looks bizarre.

She's in Lafayette...which is west-central IN. About an hour north of Indy.

Thanks for your offer! No potential adopters so far though :(
