Adopt Red II

Male Pit Bull Terrier


Meet Red! This boy is SUCH a love. He is the beautiful color of cedar and has a gentle sweet spirit, with an adorable head tilt. As a young stray with bite marks, he was almost completely shut down in the shelter, but now he’s in a loving foster home and learning to overcome his ruff past!


Within one week in his foster home he made friends with a kitten, loves the kids, has become his foster’s shadow. He also loves to sit and cuddle on the couch with the family, and is learning and initiating play with the dogs. His foster family says he's the king of cuddling! He loves having other dogs help him learn how to dog! He’s calm and gentle when playing with the kitten and kids, too! He's much more fearful of men, but you can tell he's trying and wants to love them too. He will relax, sit and lick his foster dad now but he gets nervous when dad stands up. He's learning no one will hurt him. Red loves his crate. When the kids get rowdy or he's overwhelmed he goes and takes a nap in there. He sleeps the night in it with no problems. 


Red is a great listener. He responds well to a stern “no”, and is the most gentle food/treat taker. Whoever loves him will need to invest in bully sticks! They're his favorite.  He's still young and likes to chew a bit, but nothing that can't be corrected or redirected to a toy. He’s learning to “sit” and “come”, and is doing very well!   


Red loves walks and running with the dogs in the yard, but also just wants to be with you. His furever family will need to be one willing to provide him with adequate exercise, especially out and about for walks to help socialize him and build his confidence.
