The Arizona Humane Society is hoping to find a forever family for a pup who has had a hard time on the streets. 

Petunia, a 2-year-old American Pit Bull terrier, was picked up last Monday after she was hit by a car. 

The Arizona Humane Society's Second Chance Animal Trauma Hospital treated her for severe road rash wounds, a bloody nose and paw injuries. They say her paw pads were torn and burnt from walking on hot pavement for at least several days. 

Petunia is now ready for a family to call her own and keep her comfortable and safe. AHS says she is affectionate, walks well on a leash and enjoys a good belly rub. 

You can bring her home with an adoption fee of $135, which includes spay surgery, vaccinations and a microchip. Bring along your current pets and meet Petunia at the Sunnyslope Campus shelter at 9226 N. 13th Avenue.
