This pretty girl is Spot, a Pointer/Pit mix who’s about 2 years old. She’s full of energy and enthusiasm, but since she can settle and focus well, she should respond well to positive (reward-based) training. She loves to chase a tennis ball, adores her toys and does well with other dogs. Spot is looking for an active, committed family to call her own.
