Pet of the Week: Cami
Meet Cami, this week’s Red Hills Pet of the Week.
This 18-month-old tan and white pit bull/boxer mix was surrendered to the City of Gillette Animal Shelter way back on July 31, giving her the unwanted designation as the longest-term residence.
Cami is fixed, is up-to-date on vaccinations, and very healthy. At 50 pounds, she’s considered a medium-size dog. But, this girl is all muscle and full of energy. She loves to play and go for walks and would do best in an active household.
Her former family reported she had issues with barking, jumping the fence, and running away. However, with all the dogs outside at the shelter, she stood quietly watching as the other dogs barked for attention.
Cami does suffer from a condition known as happy tail, or kennel tail, when a dog wags their tail hard enough on a hard surface that it causes a small cut or split on the tip of their tail. When you go to meet Cami, you’ll notice shelter staff has made adjustments to her kennel to prevent further injury to her tail.
Cami tolerates cats and gets along with some dogs. A meet and greet would be a must for adoptive families with other pets. Shelter staff reports that she’s very house-trained and they haven’t seen any evidence of aggressive behavior.
It’s time for Cami to find her “fur-ever” home.
The Shelter is open Monday through Friday from 1 to 5:30 p.m. and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
