Hello, I'm Veronica, just like the actress Veronica Lake... I think I kind of look like her, too, don't you think? Oh wait, that Veronica didn't have a huge tongue that stuck out of her mouth 90% of the time? Well then, let's move on to the important information.  

As an 8 year old Pit Bull mix, I'm very respectful of your house and know how to go potty outside. I do have a crate but I don't like being in it because it reminds me of that darn old cage I used to be in at the shelter, but Foster Mom says I have to use it because she has a cat and we might not get along, she also said that  YOU might want me to go in one sometimes... after you adopt me of course. 

Foster Mom tells me I'm a really smart girl because I've already learned the "sit" and "stay" commands. I absolutely love walks and am good and tolerant with other dogs, but my forever home probably shouldn't have cats, unless someone is really willing to work on it with me or keep us separate.

I love being around my people so much that I do have a bit of  separation anxiety but I am on meds for it and I do really well in the crate when my fosters aren’t home. 

I'm not aggressive towards anything, not even when you are around my food while I eat. I do like to play with my toys and really like to play fetch. Will you play fetch with me, too? I don't chew on anything that is yours... unless you mean the bones you give me to chew on, ha ha! I really do like people, the big ones and even the small ones they call children, and I do get along very well with them... and also the ones they call "visitors", too. I have a wiggly butt and my tail wags a lot... I'm not a lap dog but I do like to get attention, like belly rubs and ear and butt scratches and I'll thank you for those with my kisses. 

My foster mom calls me Ronnie, and she keeps telling me that I'm a joy to have around because I'm a very gentle and calm girl. Really.... all I want is your love and attention. So won't you come to meet me soon, and Pick Me! Pick Me! 

Please check our events page at http://www.SecondCityCanineRescue.org to find where Ronnie may be shown this weekend.    If you are interested in adopting this sweet, sweet dog, you must send an application or email us at adoptions@sccrescue.org prior to a Saturday Adoption Event so we know you plan on attending.  If we do not receive any communication from you, she may be adopted out at our event prior to 1 pm if the perfect home comes along 🙂  Also, we only adopt our animals out near Chicagoland... we are sorry but we cannot accept any out of state applications.   We look forward to speaking with you!
