HARTFORD - Gidget would be a great first dog for a young family that wants a pet to be part of their lives.

She's a pit bull mix who is about 2 years old. Gidget is very animated, happy, and enthusiastic, but actually is not that energetic;  she knows how and when to settle down, and doesn't need tons of exercise to exhaust her.

She gets along with other dogs. She's also attentive and obedient, and will train well. At 45 pounds she is small and easy to control, so would be more manageable and loves the car and the leash.
