It’s Adopt-a-Shelter Dog Month and we’ll be introducing you to extraordinary canines who need homes throughout October. Today, meet Castle, an adorable pit bull who is approximately 1 year old.

Here’s a way to really celebrate National Pit Bull Awareness Day on Oct. 25: adopt this regal lady, who came to Animal Care & Control of N.Y.C. (AC&C) as a stray found in Queens.

Communications associate Alexandra Silver tells PEOPLE that the black-and-white cutie is very social and pleasantly greets every single person she meets. “She isn’t just friendly with humans; she also seems to enjoy the company of other dogs,” Silver says.

The young, energetic pup would do great with an owner who has as much pep as she does. Want to go for an impromptu run in the park? Count Castle in. And, if you’d like to curl up on the couch and watch Game of Thrones afterward, she’s happy to oblige.

In honor of Pit Bull Awareness Day, anyone who adopts a pit bull or pit mix from AC&C will receive a free New York Pit Bull Appreciation Society BarkBox, a package containing toys and treats for big dogs. Proud adopters will also get New York Pit Bull Appreciation Society pins.

“We’re very grateful to everyone at Bark & Co for their heartfelt generosity and enthusiastic support,” the AC&C’s executive director Risa Weinstock said in a statement. “Working together we can help more pit bulls find the homes they deserve, and more people find out what great companion animals these dogs are.”

Meet Castle at AC&C’s Brooklyn, New York, care center at 2336 Linden Blvd., or email for more information about her.
