4 Year Old.  Neutered Male.  Pit Bull.  73 lbs.

If you have a toy, a tennis ball – you name it! – I’ll be your best friend.  I think toys are the best and I’m not picky, but I do have to admit that I really do enjoy tennis balls.  I will happily catch one in mid air and then sit so you can toss another one for me.  Those plush squeaky toys are lots of fun, too.  I’m super smart and I already know Sit, Shake, High Five and Drop and boy do I like treats so I think you can teach me more commands and maybe even some tricks!  After I am tired from walks, hikes and play time I will curl up at your feet for a well deserved nap.  I’m a handsome fella with adorable white markings on my nose that make me pretty cute!  I was surrendered by my owner of a few months on March 23 because he had some health issues and could no longer take care of me.  My previous owner said I did well with the neighbor’s dog but no one knows if I’ve ever lived with a dog.  If you already have a dog at home it will be important that we meet to make sure we get along.  I have no known history with cats or children.  I am a lot of dog and I am very strong when I play and when I walk on a leash.  A no pull harness will be a must for me.  I’ve already had 2 homes in my young life and I’m not sure I was socialized well because many things, at first, make me a little nervous.  Things like the furnace or the refrigerator kicking on or the TV were new to me so I’ll need a patient owner who will introduce me to new people and places.  I also am not used to a lot of body handling and did not do well when I first arrived when the staff tried to give me vaccines etc.  Since I’ve been here I’m definitely better but an experienced dog owner who can work with me will be best.  I can be a barker and I can be loud at times so please know that about me, especially if you have neighbors close by.  I’m looking for an active family that can give me the exercise and play time I crave.  I’m sure you can only imagine what will happen if an on the go fella like me doesn’t get enough time to romp and play!  I have an inkling I’ll get into things!  Well, I have to admit I’m ready to start the next chapter of my life and I hope you’re in it!  Stop by and say hi!
