Sundance: Cincinnati Animal CARE

Meet CincyPet Magazine's Rescue Dog of the Week

Sundance, AKA Sunny, is a pitbull terrier mix available for adoption with Cincinnati Animal CARE in Northside and has been living in a foster home since January!

When her fosters first got her, she was definitely reserved and didn’t know what was going on or how to react.  She didn’t know how to play or how to be a dog.  It took her about two weeks to feel at home and then she started playing!  Once she knew she was safe, she showed the world what an amazing and playful pup she is!

So why do the names Sundance and Sunny fit? Sundance, because she likes to jump up and dance with her foster dad and get her back scratched. When is is tuckered out from dancing, Sunny loves to lay in the sunlight and soak up the sun!

Sunny is a curious girl.  She will check out every room in the house to figure out her surroundings, that includes going under beds to find all the things you thought were well hidden. Sunny likes to be with her humans, even if it is just seeing and hearing them in the house or in the yard.  But once she becomes attached to her humans, she will let you know she doesn’t want you leaving without her.

We have started working on commands with her and she is definitely treat motivated.  She is house and crate trained as long as you don’t leave her go for long periods of time….everyone has a bladder limit, right?  She has to be in the middle of all the action and loves to be the center of attention!  She is a lover and will give you kisses until you make her stop.  She is also a cuddler, she will lay on the couch and curl up next to you no matter what you are watching!

Sundance is currently living in a foster home and would do best as the only pet in her new home, so contact Cincinnati Animal CARE to set up a meeting with her. You can arrange a meeting by calling 513.541.PETS (7387).

The fee to adopt adult dogs (6 months and older) is $75. Dogs adopted from Cincinnati Animal CARE have the following included with their adoption fee: age appropriate vaccines (bordatella, distempter, parvo, and rabies); heartworm test and deworming; preventative care (heartworm, flea and tick); a microchip; and a Hamilton County dog license.

Cincinnati Animal CARE Human Society is the county animal shelter responsible for taking in stray animals in Hamilton County. Cincinnati Animal CARE is committed to the nation-wide no-kill movement. Since taking over the shelter in August 2020, they have maintained a live release for dogs over 97% and for cats over 91%.
