Meet Estella, a 3-year-old, gray American pit bull mix, weighing 67-pounds. She was surrendered to the SPCA of Texas on March 3 because she was a little too active for her previous owner. She’s looking for a strong friend who will roughhouse with her and has lots of space and lots of muscle. She gets pretty excited around cats, so she’d do best in a home without any. If you have any other dogs, please bring them to meet her so you can see if they get along. Estella has been spayed, microchipped and has received all age-appropriate vaccinations. Her adoption fee is $95. #147505
