Pasowee is the Native American goddess of endurance. Pasowee had the ability to see through cultural stereotypes and endure the time needed to remove all obstacles.

Background Info:


Pasowee was brought into the city pound as a stray by a member of the public. She was thirsty, tired, and in all-around bad shape. She was also malnourished and full of milk. One of our volunteers immediately went to the location where she was found in search of her puppies but could not locate them. It's very possible that Pasowee was discarded by her previous owner after she was done nursing her puppies. We will never know. What we do know is that this enduring dog is incredibly sweet and so deserving of a better life...

Adoption Fee: $200
Breed:  Pit Bull
Sex:  Female
Age:  1 to 3
Weight:  50 to 60 Lbs
Color:  Silver & White

Health Condition:

Pasowee came to us in bad shape but thankfully nothing serious. She has minor skin issues that are currently being addressed, most likely caused by stress, neglect and the lack of pre-natal care before having puppies. Otherwise, all she needs is some TLC to gain her weight back, good nutrition and a comfortable environment.


Even if you can’t adopt this sweetheart, you can still help by donating for her care. 


Physical Description:  

She looks a little rough but there's a real beauty in there. She will soon be shedding the bad life and we expect her dull and thin coat to be replaced by a healthy and shiny one. Pasowee is medium size and has the sweetest expression. Her eyes not only tell a story, but also how grateful she is to be given this precious chance. 


Living Situation:  

Pasowee is currently resting comfortably in our special suite at the shelter. She is so sweet and easy that we have given her a room with a couch instead of a kennel. She loves being pampered and having all of this comfort. She's been sleeping a lot since being with us. It's possible she had been on high-alert for the last few months while nursing puppies in an unsafe environment. She is now recuperating and gathering her strength and energy back. God knows she deserves it. 


Pasowee is a total sweetheart. How anyone can mistreat such a little angel is beyond us.  She is so sweet and polite and sensitive. She is very calm, but its possible she will gain a little more energy as she gets better. Still, we cant picture her ever being a spaz. We do believe the sadness will leave her eyes eventually and be replaced by a gentle smile. 

Pasowee has a docile nature and comes across as submissive and eager to please. We are still getting to know her but we all have been smitten by her tender heart and doting personality.

Behavior with people: 

Pasowee is soaking up all the love she can get like water in the desert! The relief is unmistakable. She has a huge heart full of love for people but probably never had a chance to show it. She cant get enough now. Please don't apply for this sweetie pie if you are looking for an independent dog. We want her to be treated like a princess and receive as much love as she needs. She has sooo much to give back. 


Behavior with children:  

Unknown. Pasowee is sensitive. For her sake, we will not place her in a home with toddlers or rough-and-tough children. She's not a toy and we don't want to see her treated that way. Older, gentle and respectful kids are ok. She would probably prefer a quiet family to a very active one. 


Behavior with other dogs:  

Unknown. As of now, we prefer a home as the only pet for Pasowee as we don't think her past experiences with other dogs were necessarily very positive. We wont rule out a home with a compatible male, but he would have to be gentle and calm. Slow instructions are a must! We do believe she would love being the only dog in the home and receive all the love she needs instead of sharing.


Behavior with other animals:  



She's naturally easy and well-behaved. We haven't begun any formal training with her. Just teaching her the ropes of being in a home. She keeps her room clean and hasn't been destructive. 

Best Attribute:   

Let her eyes speak for themselves. She is as sweet as she looks.
