Facts about King

  • Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix
  • Color: Brown/Chocolate
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
King is a 1 1/2 year old pittie.When King came to us, someone said he was coming in and out of his yard for a couple of weeks and he would feed him, then he would disappear.

We noticed Kings head area had punctures on it and hair loss. After a couple of days we received a call to say that the owner didn't want the dog and King ended up being attacked by a potential new owner in the back of the car and that's how we got him.

King is the sweetest most loving and obedient dog. He loves to go on long walks and loves to play with his toys in the yard. King is house trained and loves to cuddle with everyone. We are working on his dog socializing and he cannot live with cats. Best with older children. If you are looking for a spunky, loving, obedient and all around sweet guy, then King is your man!
