A strudel is a type of layered pastry with a filling that is usually sweet. Meaning ‘whirlpool’ in its mother tongue, due to the characteristic swirl of pastry and apple filling that is visible when you cut a slice.
We dont have a lot of info about Strudel's background other than she won over the heart of a shelter's director in Lawrence, where she had found herself through no fault of her own. Strudel was struggling in that environment and was scheduled for euthanasia when the director decided to save her life by moving her to another facility. Strudel eventually found her way to MPR where she quickly prove to be an awesome dog. We are so glad she was given this precious chance.

She is sooooo pretty! Not only does she have a beautiful brindle coat, but she also has a great conformation and the prettiest face. If you think she looks cute on pictures, wait till you see her in person! For real! She's a babe :-)
Strudel is living at MPR shelter, being perfectly at ease with her situation. We weren't sure what to expect since we knew she had a hard time in an overcrowded pound, but she's doing amazing with us. Our shelter is designed to simulate home-life and she is obviously in her element. She couldn't be a better guest. Quiet, patient, non destructive, non reactive... She's a perfectly content little princess and absolutely no trouble at all.
Strudel is a wonderful dog. Her attitude matches her beauty. Even-tempered and collected, but also very fun-loving and darling. She is eager to please and eager to have fun. Strudel is great at reading people and their wishes, and very expressive herself.
She has a friendly and engaging nature and seems very adaptable. Her level of energy is right in the middle. She's playful AND cuddly. Not rambunctious by any means, but lively and bright. We cant say anything bad about this delightful girl.
Behavior with people:
She is such a flirt! Volunteers are falling for her one after an other. Strudel is very friendly but not overwhelming. She's great at figuring out people's mood and very accommodating. She is so eager to fit-in and will do all she can to be accepted without compromising her charm. She's irresistible.
Behavior with children:
Unknown. We've never seen her with kids but we dont see why not. She's outgoing, confident and well behaved. She does have a bit of a sensitive side to her, so we prefer older and respectful kids, for her sake.
Behavior with other dogs:
Selective. On one hand we were told she was going to be euthanized because she did not get along with other dogs, and then we found out she was part of a large play-group and doing well with all kind of dogs.
We believe the answer is somewhere in the middle. Strudel might be able to share a home with a compatible dog, provided the owner understands the breed well. Like any typical bully-type dog, Strudel should not be taken to an environment where she'd be expected to act like a Labrador. That would be setting her up to fail. She's a Pit bull and while she has wonderful Pit Bull qualities, such as her love of people, she is most likely selective when it comes to other dogs.
Behavior with other animals:
Unknown. We suspect she's a no-go in a home with cats. Not her fault. She is after all, a Terrier.
We dont have any info about her background but she is easy to handle and well behaved. She keeps her kennel clean at the shelter and hasn't been destructive. She is smart and eager-to please and no trouble at all. We bet she'd be a ton of fun in a training class and would make all the other dogs jealous.
Where do we start? Her beauty is only rivaled by her personality. This dog has it all! The charm, the looks, the smarts... She wont be with us very long!
