If you're wondering why the Pet of the Week is so often a pitbull, it's because the shelters are absolutely full to bursting with them, unfortunately. I wish more people knew what dedicated, gentle and wonderful friends they make! This beauty is Velvet. Despite the fact that for much of her life she was chained up and used for breeding, she is a sweet and responsive girl. She's 3 years old and has the CUTEST white socks. She knows how to "sit" and will do so willingly and repeatedly for treats. She learns fast and will be a whiz at obedience training. She has endless affection and kisses to offer! Come down to the Seattle Animal Shelter and meet Velvet, or see her on this week's CityStream.
