Bonnie is a two-year-old pit bull mix who loves to play and snuggle.

She’s house trained, crate trained, and doesn’t mind being home alone. She’s a happy girl who likes meeting new people and new dogs. She enjoys walks, but needs a jacket because she hates the cold.

She’s good around children, but isn’t fond of cats.

Bonnie weighs 56 pounds, and is spayed, vaccinated, treated for parasites and micro chipped. She comes with 30-days of free pet insurance courtesy of 24PetWatch. Her adoption fee is $350.
