Pet of the Week – Halo

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

HARTFORD -- Halo is a female Pit Bull mix that is about 3-years-old.

She recently had both ACLs repaired. Halo is a great dog, but often overlooked, as many of the Pittie types are.

Halo is house trained, is good on a leash, and knows how to behave in a home. She’s already had lots of training, including being crate trained as well; she’ll even go into the crate on her own when she’s tired.

Halo loves kids, and would be a great family dog, and she's been around the young children in her foster home. She snuggles and sleeps with them, and absolutely adores them. She is great with people; like a Lab Retriever, she wants to meet everyone. Halo is young, playful and active, but knows when it’s playtime, and knows when to chill.

She’d be a good dog for young first-timers; perhaps a couple with young children. She’s good with other dogs for the most part, pending intros; but probably not a playmate.

And finally, she loves berries! She actually picks and eats them herself in the foster family’s yard; and her favorites are strawberries and raspberries.
