GUILFORD COUNTY, N.C. — Pita Pocket is a 2-year-old Labrador Retriever mix who came to the shelter as a stray on January 26, 2019. Pita is a pretty, dainty girl, weighing in at about 43 pounds. She has a beautiful black coat and a splash of white on her chest.

When you walk by Pita Pocket’s kennel, she looks like a fairly active dog, but really all she wants is for you to take her out, so she can show you what a great companion she would be. Pita is very affectionate and loves attention, she loves to play, and she would love to have a fenced-in back yard to run around in. She would be great for an individual or for a family, someone who likes to jog or has active children. So if you are looking for a dog that’s not too big, she might be just the right size for YOU.

The good news about Pita Pocket is that she is heartworm-negative! But she will need to be on the monthly heartworm preventative for the rest of her life to keep that healthy status.

Normally, Pita Pocket’s adoption fee is $50 (covering her spay, up-to-date vaccines, and microchipping). 

However, starting June 14 at noon, all animals over 30 days at the shelter are fee-waived adoptions. This great promotion will run from now until June 29th when GCAS is going to hold a “Petapalooza” adoption event at the shelter, 4525 W. Wendover Ave., Greensboro. (details still will be coming).
