‘Ello, Charlie here, so very pleased to make your acquaintance. I am a 50lb 2-3 year-old male American Pit Bull Terrier and I am neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped. You might notice that I have a rather significant overbite that results from issues with my mandible and nasopharyngeal area and can cause some breathing difficulties from time to time. I have a prescription for two medications that I take only as needed—which is rarely. My people are happy to share more information with anyone interested in adopting me. It’s just most important that I avoid becoming over-heated. I wear a “Sense-ation” harness when walking. I have mastered, “Sit,” “Wait” and “Down”. I sit and wait for my meals. So, now, I am learning, “Leave It” and “Off.” I am a happy puppy at heart. Sometimes, I am tempted by sox . . . but other than those wonderfully smelly garments, I don’t bother my peoples’ belongings. I do enjoy all manner of dog toys and chews. I like to play with them by myself, with people-friends, or with dog-friends, like me. My foster-sister, Libby and I are presently engaged in a never-ending war, called “tug.” Even though, people call it “war,” its just play for us and we don’t care who wins. I get along famously with quite a menagerie of dogs at my foster home . . . there is just one rather outspoken old man who is gruff with all of us, but I am learning to give him a wide-berth. Though, no children live here, several visit regularly. They range from ages 8 to 14 and with slow respectful introductions I am very comfortable around them and rather enjoy being loved by them. I do recall that when younger children would rush at a dog I was frightened. When my people are away during the day, I stay in my crate. I complain a little at first, because I would much rather be with my people-friends or dog-friends, but I quiet down, soon enough. I have been called, a lover and player, delightful, a sweet boy, and sometimes, a “space-invader,” because I LOVE to snuggle. I am affectionate, eager to please and well-behaved. When I first meet new people, I can be a little standoffish—I do best if they just ignore me and allow me to approach them when I am ready. If you give me a little space when we first meet, I will be happy to “invade your space” and give you love, if you let me.
