Pet Connection: Meet Susan

Meet Susan, a year-and-a-half-old female pit bull who almost didn’t make it out of a regional pound.

The gray pit bull’s velvety coat and melting eyes notwithstanding, Susan was almost put to sleep because controversy over her breed made her less likely to find a home for adoption than other dogs.

That didn’t stop volunteers with 4 Luv of Dog. Rescue founder Kish Hilmert and Susan joined Emily live in-studio to talk about Susan, who’s suited for a home with other dogs and other animals. What she’s not so well-suited to, however, is these harsh winter conditions, since pit bulls have very short coats.

Fortunately, she can rock a sweater like a true Fargo girl. Check out her video for some great safety tips from Kish about how to keep your dog safe from dangerously cold weather and about adopting a dog like Susan for your “fur” ever home.
