Hi, I'm Guinness. If you like small pit bulls, I'm your guy. I'm in the 45 pound range and am super short! I came from a bad background so I am very cautious with new people, and I get anxious if no other dogs are around. I LOVE other dogs, and will need a confident dog my size or larger to be happy. Sometimes I like to play with my foster siblings and sometimes I like to go up and have some alone time in my crate or on a human bed. Once I get to know you I give lots of kisses on your ears and hands, and even your legs if I catch you coming out of the shower! I've been on a couple of very short walks and am pretty observant and obedient on the way out, but once we turn around I pull like crazy because I just want to go home. I will need a family with patience to show me that not all people are mean and to let me come out of my shell slowly and become the loving guy I can be.
