HOUSE TRAINING: Good. Jane is housebroken.
CRATE TRAINING: She's learning to be crated and doing very well. She does sleep through the night quietly in a crate. 
OTHER DOGS: Jane is a shy girl and does well with other dogs with proper introductions. It takes her a good 10-15 minutes of interaction and then she's best friends. She does best with smaller groups of dogs as a lot of dogs can overwhelm her; so no dog parks or doggie daycares.
CATS: Jane is curious of cats. She really wants to chase but wants to please people more. So she needs to be supervised and probably best not in a home with cats.
CHILDREN: Dog-respectful children, 8 and older
HEALTH: Jane is spayed, microchipped, flea treated, dewormed, and is current on vaccines. Jane had experiended some hair loss, which the vet believes is due to hormones and nursing 8 big puppies. She is now a healthy weight, and hair loss is minimal She may also have a food allergy component and may be sensitive to chicken. Your adoption donation goes toward the cost of this vet care as well as other incidental costs of care. In addition, all pets adopted from Motley Zoo come with a free 30 day  trial  of free pet insurance provided by 24PetWatch.

HISTORY: Jane was found as a pregnant stray in Yakima.

NOTES FROM FOSTER HOME: Jane is a very loving girl, although it's obvious that she has not been socialized or trained previously. She has been working on basic commands like sit, off and is leash trained. She's learned to ride in a car without barking at passersby. She has learned to be crated and doing well, with treat motivation but would prefer not to be. Fortunately, this girl is very food motivated. She is ecstatic to see her people and her whole body shakes from the enthusiasm of her wagging tail. She has a wonderful pibble smile. We are working on building her confidence, as she is initially a shy girl with people and dogs. But once she gets to know you, she's a very loving pup who wants nothing more than to be with you. She loves to be pet but also can entertain herself and is just content to hang out with you. She loves toys and plays appropriately with dogs of all ages and sizes. She will get down to small dogs' levels and play with them gently and then can be exuberant and energetic with dogs her own size. She loves to cuddle and go for walks. Super energetic so would make an amazing jogging partner and can hike for hours. She's just an amazingly sweet and fun-loving girl. She is a typical pitbull who loves to be with her people and is a true snuggle bug. She would probably do best in a home with another canine playmate as she enjoys playing with her foster brothers and sisters so much.

All dogs adopted from Motley Zoo come with a leash and Martingale collar (or a harness, if necessary), depending on each dog's particular needs. We also send home additional flea treatment and deworming medication for your future use.

Motley Zoo Animal Rescue is a volunteer, foster based, 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue organization based in Redmond, WA. Motley Zoo does not have a traditional shelter location, but instead, utilizes private foster homes which care for the animals individually, in a home environment, until a "furever" home is found.

Please check out our website,, especially pages, "Our Philosophy" and "Adoption FAQs" (both under "About Us") for more on adopting with a foster based organization and how our specific process works.

Please email to request an adoption application so we can get you started on the journey to finding a new, furry friend! Once you have been approved, then we can set up a meeting with the animal you have been matched with.

Thank you for considering one of our great, adoptable animals!

Rock on-
The Motley Zoo Crew
