Melanie sweet Melanie, a beautiful pit bull who is around 6 years old and weighs 38 lbs. Hold on to your heartstrings, because she will pull on them pretty hard. This amazing little girl has had the roughest of starts. She was used as a bait dog in a fighting ring. Her jaw was broken and teeth were removed. Her face and body are covered in scars. Melanie has been bred a few times as well. On paper, you wouldn't think she would be a very adoptable dog. Look at her history. Why would you adopt her? We can tell you why. Look past her scars and her deformed mouth and look into her beautiful brown eyes. Sing your best version of 'You Are So Beautiful' and watch her light up and wiggle like there is no tomorrow. All Melanie wants is to be in your lap and loved. She is a snuggle machine! She is currently in a foster home with 3 other pit bulls and does fine. She would not do well in a house with cats, however. She walks great on a leash and loves long walks. She is housebroken and crate trained. Melanie would do fine as the only dog and the center of your attention. Please look past her scars and let her warm your heart as well as your lap!
