New year, same mission.

Fun 107 is excited to continue Wet Nose Wednesday into 2022, where we spotlight one lucky animal on the SouthCoast that is up for adoption in hopes of finding them a forever home. Thanks to the help of local shelters, we have connected loving families with their new best friends. This week, a New Bedford dog is hoping to start a new life in the new year.

Meet Lizzie. She is a medium-energy, five-year-old American pit bull terrier mix residing at Lighthouse Animal Shelter in New Bedford. She is positively obsessed with human affection.

​She is a happy girl who loves to spend time outside with her tennis ball and will gladly challenge you to a game of tug-o-war. Really, the thing she cares most about is snuggling with her favorite people.

“She'll plop right in your lap and offer you kisses as long as you keep your end of the deal and give her a belly rub,” said the shelter.

​Lizzie is very food motivated and ready to learn new things. She has been on walks with the Lighthouse volunteers who report she is a breeze to walk. She likes to spend her time sniffing everything meeting new humans

Lizzie would prefer to be the only pet in the home.

“While this may deter some adopters, we know her perfect fit is out there,” said the shelter. “Someone who is ready to give all their attention and love to one pup and she'll give you that love and attention right back.”

Lizzie will make a wonderful companion for someone who is looking for the sweet company of a dog. If she sounds like the perfect fit for your family, contact the Lighthouse Animal Shelter to schedule a play date.
