American Pit Bull Terrier Mix

Meet Marissa! Rescued by the NYPD, this sweet pup is looking for an adopter who will help her come out of her shell. Adopt Marissa today!

Big fan of: Hanging out with her best friends! Marissa is very friendly and affectionate with her close human friends, and with time and patience she warms up to unfamiliar faces. Marissa has a medium energy level and is content with lounging and spending time with her favorite people.

Special features: This smart girl already knows “sit”, “down”, and “touch”! Marissa likes learning new tricks and will work hard for a tasty treat. She should meet any new dog friends in a one-on-one setting. Guidance and a routine walking schedule will help Marissa adjust to her new home and only use the bathroom outside.

Dream home: Marissa can be nervous when she is outside, and would feel more comfortable living in a home in a quiet neighborhood. She needs a patient adopter with some previous dog experience who will help her become more confident and can spend some time training her. Marissa would like to join a home with teens-and-up.

If you’re interested: Please call our Adoption Center in New York City at (212) 876-7700, ext. 4120.
