I am looking for a home for Red, a 3 year old Pit Bull cross. Red is a rescue currently being fostered - he was found abandoned and starving. Because of this, I am unsure of his background and how well he gets along with cats or children. So far he has been tolerant with other dogs - he is selective based on their energy level as he doesn't like to be jumped on. He is pretty tolerant of most dogs but has a tendency to growl if they push his buttons. He is currently living with a young pointer and doesn't mind her attention most of the time. Best interactions so far have been with older, calm dogs - especially ones that will have a nap beside him. He has shown protective/behavioural issues toward male humans - presenting some trust issues. He is very devoted and loving when he warms up to you - favourite activity is snuggling up beside me and falling asleep. Due to a busy life and the time I can commit to fostering, I can not give Red the time he needs and deserves!
Red likes sleeping and going for walks. He has the loveable characteristics of a pit bull - devoted, affectionate, caring and a little goofy at times! He responds well to directions, can sit, and is house-broken - though we had a few issues when he came in to the new environment. He's starting to figure out that he'll get a bathroom walk on a normal schedule. He walks well with the leash other than pulling from time to time, and is working on his heeling skills.
Red is hoping for a nice quiet house that he can snooze in, sufficient walks and a human that is able to work with him and give him the love he deserves. Red is neutered, up to date on shots and is micro-chipped. It is clear that Red will make a great companion - he is very devoted to making his human happy and will certainly give you everything you give him!
