After getting married and buying a place of our own in early 2002,
my husband Phil and I decided it was finally time to find our dog.
I knew he or she was out there just waiting for us and I poured over the
listings in Petfinder for hours on end. Then I saw her - "Lotus",
a small, very smart-looking pitbull terrier.
I immediately sent the listing to my husband and we decided to contact
her rescuer. After hearing all about her past - she was found as
a stray in NYC and taken to the CACC where the CLAWS rescuer found her.
She was not looking for a pitbull, but something about this dog captured
her. Intelligent, affectionate, obedient, and ADORABLE, she was obviously
We visited them at the rescuer's house, fell in love and brought her
to her "forever" home. She has proven to be an amazing dog, well-mannered
and learning new tricks all the time. She even allows us to dress
her up in costumes for Halloween and Christmas and she loves the attention.
Almost all white, with a big brown spot on her head and "freckles" on her
ears, she has a lot of admirers. She makes friends with everyone
she meets, old and young, and they all comment on her friendly face and
the non-stop full-body-wagging. We are trying to be "breed ambassadors"
and make an example in public that pitbulls are not monsters, in fact,
they are intelligent, friendly and they LOVE people.
She is a part of our family just like anyone else and we can't imagine
life without her. I tell everyone about Petfinder and the wonderful
CLAWS organization when they inevitably ask where I found such a great
dog. With so many pets that need homes, I make a point to tell people
that adoption is the best way to find that special 4-legged someone. Please

Happy Days for DAISY aka Oogle aka Lotus
Lotus has all the good qualities of her breed:
Obedient, when off leash and called she races back like an arrow
Peacful and Humble
She was rescued from a shelter, captured her rescuer with her calm,
intelligent eyes. Used to being treated like a pet and respectful of furniture
and other human belongings, but loves to stretch out on a couch. She is
also used to spending time in a crate and actually feels very comfortable
being crated as long as she can observe the world through a window or glassdoor.
She is around 2 years old, spayed and vaccinated and healthy. Weighs about
35 lbs. She is a petite, graceful, athletic terrier. In short, Lotus is
perfect! Not just perfect for her breed, but perfect as a companion.
