Cee Cee's surrender notes at the high kill Manhattan's New York City Animal Care and Control describe her as a two-year-old female black and white pit bull mix. On August 7, her family surrendered her to the shelter; no one has really figured out any reason. Who says, "no time" to a dog who has been part of the family?

According to CeeCee's assessment at the shelter, "Ceecee did not show any concern during the behavior assessment. The behavior department feels that she can go to an 'Average' home."
And if CeeCee could speak, through the words of a volunteer who personally met this beautiful dog, she would say the following:
"No one really told me why I'm no longer with them; they took good care of me - my coat is nice and shiny, they fed me good food, and they only have nice things to say about me. The nice volunteer lady took me for a walk, and I showed off my house training skills, and I only pulled on the leash a little bit. She was trying to take some pictures of me, but I'm still not certain about anything, so I didn't really pose for her. I liked to lean against her legs for petting, and she gave me treats."
