I am almost four years old and I don't want to live at the shelter any longer. They are nice to me but I want a person of my own. I did belong to someone but they could not keep me. Maybe it was because I need a home without kids but I can't help that I get jealous. I am just not good at sharing my people, if they love me I want to make sure it is only me! I am a Boxer Pit Bull mix breed. Some nice things about me are I am house trained and neutered. I know how to sit and lie down. I should be the only pet in the home, no other dogs please and definitely no cats. To be honest I just don't get cats, I don't understand them. As for other dogs I am afraid they will take some of the love and attention away from me. I am being honest about being emotionally needy but that does not make me a bad dog, it just makes me a love sponge. In case you don't know what a love sponge is adopt me and I will show you. Remember as much love that I need I also give back. Surely there is someone looking for love too. I am starting to wonder why nobody wants me. I was a stray and so happy when my rescuer took me in. I took a sigh of relief thinking I finally have a home. Well it didn't last long because the other cats in the home were not nice to me so I had to go and ended up at the shelter. I wasn't worried because I just thought those cats were not nice but it is now four months later and nobody that comes to the shelter picks me to go home with them......I am sad!!! I am spayed and know how to use the litter box. I am nice to other cats and children; I have never lived with dogs. Please give me a chance to have a family and a home to call my own. I am a year and a half old Tiger cat just waiting to "go home."
