It was Bette Davis who said that if she had to choose, it was better for a woman to be brainy rather than beautiful.
If she were only beautiful, well, there was nowhere to go. But if she were brainy, she could always convince others that she was beautiful, too.
Of course, beauty and brains is an unbeatable combo. And that’s what you get with Lioness, a 1-year-old Bull Terrier mix. She was rescued from Animal Care Centers NYC where sadly she only had a few days left to find a home or a shelter to take her in, so the SPCA road to the rescue. Lioness is friendly and energetic, enjoying the company of other canines. She’d be great for an active family and home with a big yard in which she could run and play for hours.
Recently, Lioness aced her C.L.A.S.S. (Canine Life and Social Skills) test, which measures a dog’s ability to walk on a loose leash, meet and greet and more. Talk about one smart cookie.
To meet Lioness, visit the SPCA of Westchester at 590 N. State Road in Briarcliff Manor.
Founded in 1883, the SPCA is a no-kill shelter and is not affiliated with the ASPCA. The SPCA is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and 1 to 4 p.m. Sundays. To learn more, call 914-941-2896 or visit spca914.org.
