Hi everyone! This is China, an 18-month-old Pit Bull mix. But she’s not from there. She is actually from Louisiana, and she’s new to Texas. You see, she was transferred to the SPCA of Texas on May 21, along with 52 of her closest friends, due to all the devestating floods from the Mississippi River. The Louisiana SPCA and the SPCA of Texas have a great partnership, and several adoptable pets were moved to Texas to find new, loving homes here which allowed the Louisiana SPCA to help other local shelters who were badly affected by the floods. It`s been a long couple of months, but she’s really excited to meet all these new, friendly Texans. She’s an energetic, happy-go-lucky girl. China has a beautiful, brindled coat and an irresitible smile. While she’s extremely friendly with humans, she’s a little more particular about her canine friends, so if you have other dogs at home, please bring them to the shelter to meet China to make sure they all get along. She is heartworm positive, but her treatments are FREE to her new family at a Metroplex-area VCA Animal Hospital after she’s adopted. This will provide the best total care for heartworm positive dogs like China in treatment, as they`ll have access to emergency care and overnight stays if necessary. #13153173
