Pet of the week: Lilly is an 8-month old Pit Bull Terrier puppy with a bubbly personality

Posted at 10:01 AM, Apr 21, 2017

Every Friday ABC Action News puts a special spotlight on a dog or cat that needs a home in our Pet of the Week segment.

This week we are featuring a Pit Bull Terrier puppy. Meet Lilly. This 8-month-old lady comes from Pet Pal Animal Shelter in St. Petersburg.

Lilly has a lovable and bubbly personality. Shelter workers report she is very active, smart and loves to give doggy kisses.

Lilly is looking for the perfect family who will help her become the best dog she can be. Thanks to her Pit Project Guardian Angel, Lilly's adoption fee is been reduced to $75. You must own your own home to adopt her.

Lilly is spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped.

For more information about how to adopt Lilly or other adoptable animals at Pet Pal Animal Shelter, you can call them (727) 328-7738 or go online to
