Canine Good Citizens

On Monday, May 11, the Pennsylvania SPCA (PSPCA) in Philadelphia will administer the Canine Good Citizen Exam to approximately 15 canine candidates and their owners. This is the first time we've offered the exam and we're excited to see who will comprise our first graduating class.

Pit Bulls and Pit Bull mixes have been invited to take the exam for free. Nearly half the dogs signed up are Pits, some of whom were adopted from our shelter.

With so much negative publicity surrounding this misunderstood breed, the PSPCA is proud to show the world what good citizens they can be, particularly in the hands of responsible owners.

The handsome boy shown above is Louis, who was rescued by PSPCA humane law enforcement officers in 2008. Louis is taking his Canine Good Citizen Exam on Monday, so be sure to send him some good luck vibes!


  1. You go Lewis ! Lewis is the most awesome dog ever - I work with him and his caregiver Nate at Hunting Park sometimes and Lewis is a "model" dog ...the poster is great too.

  2. Way to go, Lewis. You're terrific and we wish you good luck on Monday.

  3. we need an update! how did you do, lewis?
