- THIS DOG IS NOT BEING HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING; PLEASE CONTACT KIVA AT EMAIL BELOW FOR MORE INFORMATION -
Neutered, micro-chipped, amber colored eyes, natural ears and tail, very healthy, active, high energy, loving, loyal and playful. About 60 lbs. He is very strong and muscular. If experienced with weight pulling, he would love it! He would love a spring pole and agility exercises; he has lots of energy and loves to play. He really is a sweet, loving perfect boy!!
He is super intelligent, listens well, loves to learn new commands and with a little training would excel in agility. Enjoys running, jumping, swimming, and lots and lots of cuddle time. Loves blankets and pillows and laying in front of the fire. Needs more leash training; does well, is responsive and improving quickly. He is not off-leash trained.
He is very curious, wants to please and is adaptive to your needs. He will cuddle with you all morning long or be up early ready to start the day. He enjoys sitting in your lap while you read or watch TV. He loves people and kids almost instantly; he is a watchdog and must approve visitors for the first few minutes, then just wants to be petted and played with. He is great in the house, very quiet, plays well alone with his toys, loves to look out the window and can be left alone in house without making any messes or destroying anything. Is crate trained, but I do not advise daily crate time for hours, this will upset him. Please crate only for short period of time when necessary. He would much rather relax on the couch and chew on his bone if you are away for several hours.
He lived with and loved another pit bull, female rednose then sadly she passed away after a long, full life of 14 1/2 years. He would really like another playmate with an equal dog; does better with females. He is not naturally dominate, nor submissive; he just wants to play and run. He is very easy going, consistent temperament and attitude; a fun dog! He has been socialized some with other dogs and if he feels safe in a good environment, he quickly makes friends with other dogs easily. When on walks he likes to say hi to other dogs but doesn’t like being chased by dogs not leashed. Needs help with unattended dogs that want to follow or bark at him.
Adoption Fee: $100
