Pet Corner: Natasha

Hampden County

Name: Natasha – a “Pocket Pit”
Location: Springfield Dakin Humane Society
Breed: Pit bull mix
Gender: Female
Age: 4 years
Color: Brown with white

Natasha is what we call a “Pocket Pit,” which means she’s a little smaller than the average pit bull. She has some issues with her patellas (knees) and skin, plus she’s recovered from a recent urinary tract infection, so her adopter should be sure she has wellness visits with a vet. Natasha is a very sweet dog who needs a little time to warm up to you, but does well with strangers. It’s best if she’s the only pet in her home, and if you have kids in your home, bring them down to Dakin to meet her first to be sure everyone gets along fine! Come meet this lovable girl at our Springfield Adoption Center.
