CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Animal Protective League is searching for a forever home for the sister of a past pet of the weekend—a shy but lovable pit bull named Alma.

Alma and her sister Moira arrived at the shelter four months ago and are the longest residents at the shelter. Moira found a foster home while she waits to be adopted but Alma is still waiting for adoption at the shelter.

The Cleveland APL said Alma is a volunteer favorite but can be picky with who she lets in. It typically takes a few meetings before she warms up to a person but is a goofy, loving pup once she does, the shelter said.

Alma is a homebody and her idea of a big outing is a nice hike with her owner.

The Cleveland APL said Alma would likely do best in an all-adult household or one with older children who can respect her need for space.

Through Oct. 17, all pit bull and pit bull mixes will be available for a $50 adoption fee plus the county licensing fee as part of the shelter's "Kitty and Pitty Party" promotion.
