Hi, I'm Baku! A 5 year old pitbull mix who has overcome a lot in my life, and am enjoying the second chance I've been given!
I like to lie around and relax, preferably with a human or a stick or tough toy to chew on. I enjoy walks but mostly to sniff, pee on things, and to get a breath of fresh air. Sun bathing is a favorite past time in-between naps and eating. Oh, eating! I'm a great snacker and enjoy cantaloupe, raw almonds, steamed asparagus, frozen bananas, apple slices, and baby carrots. I can moonlight as an oven timer, nearly hitting the ready mark every time.
I'm learning to dog and enjoy playing fetch although I am not quite sure about waiting for it to be thrown. I know how to sit, come, and go to bed. I understand the word “no” but do sometimes question it if you're a softy. I am house trained and have never had an indoor accident and I sleep through the night, even putting myself to bed most nights. I'm gentle and sweet and act out anything I don't want to do by either running away or deploying dead weight.
I love all adult humans, even the mail man and the guys that mow my yard. I may look the part, but I'm no guard dog. The more the merrier, I say! I'd really like to be an only pup as I'm kind of an attention hog and a little fearful of other dog's intentions. I've been through a lot but have moved past the wounds, surgery, heart worms, mange, and torn ears. Through it all, I have blossomed into a confident, happy, calm and sometimes silly boy that just enjoys the simple things in life. And I'm quite handsome with a touch of character if I don't say so myself!
I can't wait to meet you! Apply for me today!
