WESTPORT, Conn. -- Mia the pit bull is waiting at Westport Animal Control for a new family after a previous owner was forced to give her up due to the owner's battle with cancer.
Before being forced to give her up, Mia's previous owner loved her dearly, and originally rescued her from a man who used her for breeding, Westport Animal Control said. Mia has had a couple of litters of puppies in her lifetime.
Mia is 10 years old and loves sitting in the sun outside. She's a little overweight, and has been given the nickname "Miss Piggy" by staff at the Westport shelter because she sometimes grunts like a pig.
Animal Control says that Mia would do best as the only dog in the house, and does not like cats very much.
Mia is now looking for a new family to give her a forever home. For more information on Mia, contact Westport Animal Control at (203) 341-5076.
