I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
This stunning pure white American Pit Bull Terrier mix is named Mulch! Mulch, you say? Yep - a unique name for a unique dog! Mulch came to City of Elderly Love when his beloved lifelong owner experienced sudden health issues and was off his feet for some time. As a result of this unexpected injury, he and Mulch had to relocate which resulted in Mulch having to spend about 6 months living in a dog house in the backyard of their temporary housing placements. Spending the summer outdoors in Philadelphia wreaked havoc on Mulch's skin and he was left with flea bites and deep pyoderma (skin infections). Knowing the winter was fast approaching, his owner knew he had to do what was best for his buddy. And that was to find a rescue that could help appropriate care for and re-home Mulch. That's where City of Elderly Love comes in!
Mulch is now living the life of luxury in foster care! He spends his days snoozing on the couch or on his dog bed in his crate, romping around the backyard, snatching up and squeaking whatever toy he comes across, and just doing what he does best - be a dog! Mulch's former family reported him to be around 12 years old, and while he has the start of some age-related cloudy eyes, everything else about him makes us (and our vets) believe that he is likely younger than that - or maybe he is the Benjamin Button of dogs and is aging backwards? Mulch has no age-related joint stiffness, has great energy and could easily go for a jog around the neighborhood, and is always up for a good romp with his canine buds.
Mulch is currently living with other dogs (large and small) and cats, with whom he completely ignores! Mulch can be a little pushy with his introductions to other dogs but is very friendly and once over the initial excitement of making friends, is appropriate and easy-going with them! Mulch would also likely do well in a home with children, as he's gentle and appropriate when meeting new humans of all sizes. He LOVES car rides, enjoys going for long walks (on the beach, if that's what you prefer), and enjoys a good game of tug-o-war. Mulch is also housebroken and crate trained, though he'll whine a bit when its time for you to leave for work. He also likes to "talk" when he needs something like to go outside for a potty break or if he wants a back scratch - he's a very intelligent guy! He even already knows his basic commands like 'sit' and 'paw'. You can probably teach him just about any command if there are treats involved! In addition to his stunning good looks and great personality, Mulch is also super affectionate with his foster family. He loves to climb in your lap when allowed and will curl up next to you on the couch.
Mulch is already neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated. He is also negative for heart worm and lyme's disease. He also recently had his teeth cleaned! This dog is such a catch - don't miss your chance at adopting him! Mulch is available for adoption through City of Elderly Love.
