A long-term resident of the Swift Current Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) is patiently awaiting a loving family to call her own. 

Pinkie, a seven-year-old American Pit Bull Terrier, has called an SPCA kennel home for more than 315 days. 


Manager of the shelter, Sara Filion, attributed Pinkie’s long stay to her breed not being apartment-friendly, as well as her need to be the only pet in the household.  

“She was surrendered from a really good family,” Filion said. “Their circumstances just changed and they weren't able to bring her with.” 

She describes Pinkie--with a smile in her voice--as a cuddler who thinks she’s a lapdog, and will find a way into anyone’s arms as they sit down. 


While Pinkie doesn’t like other four-legged furry friends, she does love little humans and would thrive in a home with a laid-back family that has kids to play with her.  

If that sounds like you or someone you know, head over to the Swift Current SPCA’s website or give them a call.
