Icey, pit bull terrier mix
Icey is a female pit bull terrier mix being cared for at Rebel Dogs Detroit.
Icey is nothing if not a family dog, and children will love her. Icey has had all her shots. She's mastered her house-training etiquette.
Here's what Icey's friends at Rebel Dogs Detroit think of her:
Icey is a special cutie: a pitbull with a wirey coat. We don't know what she is mixed with, but we do know she has lived with kids before and would love to do that again. Icey is fun, loves snuggles, playtime and being with you. She can greet other dogs well and is able to make dog friends, but wants to be the only dog in her home. Icey is hoping to find her new family soon.

Lizzy, coonhound mix
Lizzy is a female coonhound mix currently housed at Michigan Humane Society - Detroit Center for Animal Care.
Lizzy is already spayed.
Notes from Lizzy's caretakers:
Lizzy is always on the go, would enjoy exercise, training and playing with you. She likes to be petted but is pretty low key about it. Lizzy us very active and may accidentally knock down or intimidate smaller children. She does not enjoy playing with the dogs here and must be the only pet in the home.She is full grown but needs help to drop a few pounds. Lizzy loves to play for long periods of time, will need to learn some manners and follow rules otherwise.
