This big, mushy man is Paddington, a 5 year old pit bull that has been waiting for a wonderful home of his own for so long. He was one of many dogs that came in from abusive situation back in March 2015. Even though he was treated pretty badly in his former life, Paddington holds no ill will toward anyone. He positively loves people! He spent over a year in our Tinton Falls facility, making friends and having a good time with all of his buddies there, but no one ever offered him a home so Paddington is here with us now, hoping to get discovered. Paddington has some scars from the poor treatment he received in his former home and we truly hope that his scars will not cause him to be overlooked. He's such a beautiful boy, both inside and out. He has a warm and bubbly personality and such a sense of humor. He's the type to flop on his back, mid-walk, just to roll around in the grass, or grab something from you and take off running, looking as if he's laughing all the while! He's such a goofball, and super sweet too. Paddington is even fine with other dogs, but will need a home with no cats. Please come in and meet him and give him the chance at the great home that he's never had. File#26569 3/21/16
