Flossy is a fabulous, smaller pitbull with a fun personality. She is around 2 years old, and lives in foster care. We have, briefly, tested her with other dogs, and she was super friendly, curious and playful. She likes all people and is good in the house. Flossy is ready for a forever home!

Lizzy, coonhound mix
Lizzy is a lovable female coonhound mix staying at Michigan Humane Society - Detroit Center for Animal Care.
She's already been spayed.
Here's what Lizzy's friends at Michigan Humane Society - Detroit Center for Animal Care think of her:
1) I am always on the go - I would enjoy exercise, training and playing with you 2) I like to be petted, but I am pretty low key about it. I may not beg for extra petting 3) I am very active and may accidentally knock down or intimidate smaller children 4) I do not enjoy playing with the dogs here and must be the only pet in your home 5) I am full grown.
