Meet Minnie, a 2-year-old, black-and-white pit bull mix. At just 38 pounds, she’s a petite little lady who loves to give kisses. She came to the SPCA of Texas on Nov. 22 after being rescued from inhumane conditions, so she’s had a rocky start to life. But she just knows that her future holds a loving forever family and a home to call her own. She’s sweet, enjoys lots of belly rubs and is an amazing athlete! She likes playing with toys, going for runs and sleeping next to you. She would prefer to have all of your attention to herself, so she’d do best an only pet , Minnie has been spayed, microchipped and has received all age-appropriate vaccinations. #150582
