Handsome Pete is a joy to have here with us. He is very chill and likes to relax. He loves to cuddle, chew on a bone, a tennis ball or a stuffy. He stays nearby me and takes comfort in a trusted human's presence. He is completely house-trained. Goes for walks. He is so precious, he 'watches' the birds when we are outside. He knows a few commands that help him get around like 'watch' 'step' and 'wait'.
Overall, Pete is a super handsome, easy-going, big boy who is a love! His perfect forever home will be Pete's eyes to keep him safe and give him all the love that he deserves.
To be considered for adoption, you must apply using our free, online application. Our dogs are fostered in our volunteers' homes, not in a central shelter/location. Only approved applicants are put into contact with the foster family to setup a meeting with the foster dog. Visit our Adoption Policies web page for more information and a link to our application: http://americanbulldogrescue.org/adoption-policies/.
