Additional info from foster parent:

Abby is a very sweet 3-year-old female Pitbull mix dog with very good temperament and love for life and resembles Paddington the bear. She has medium/low energy, is excitable but settles quickly, and loves people (adults or children). Abby would succeed as an only dog in a new dog owner house but was in foster with other dogs and does well with other managed dogs. She also does well with dog savvy cats, but needs to be managed, as with most dogs, she has a "what's the deal with that cat?" mentality and will chase if the cat runs.  The rule in this (Fosters) household for new dogs is that they can’t pay any attention to the cat whatsoever, which deals with the “running” cat situations. She does have a stronger prey drive which will have to be managed closely to keep the little critters in the yard safe.

Since coming to her foster home and being an insecure dog with a lack of trust of people and dogs.  A good plan with structure and regiment as well as some assistance from the PACK (5 large breed dogs), She’s blossoming nicely and is moving forward from an unknown but abusive past.  She’s smart and takes direction well and loves to explore and be introduced to new things and is eager to learn and please.  She is very solidly housebroken and crate trained for the most part and working on many obedience skills as well as others, “Nothing in life is free”.  She knows to wait patiently for her food and takes treats gently.  She's a typical structured female within this breed at approximately 48 lbs., and as she matures in her new life from a structured environment she will do very well.  
 
Walking with Abby is a real pleasure as she pays attention and stays in heel position no matter if you walk her alone or with other dogs (Brace). If she does get distracted you simply give her the "look" command and say her name and her attention is back on you.  
 
Abby loves to be handled and touched, scratched, having her ears rubbed, and just being with her peeps. She is also a working breed and thrives with having a job. It can be a small job like just going with you everywhere and assisting in a workshop, riding in the motorcycle side car she was a natural. She will be someone’s best friend!!
