Mercury is a 3-year-old Pit who was just saved from a high-kill shelter in California and is on his way to Seattle to find his forever home! He is a very happy, playful, sweet, loving boy who is always smiling. If you let him, he will shower you with kisses. He just loves everyone , people and dogs alike. He is currently living with three foster siblings; his best friend is his little 3.6 lbs poodle mix "brother". They can be found chasing each other, playing, sharing a bone, and snuggling together. Mercury is a non-barker and enjoys having his ears/belly rubbed, snuggling with his foster mom, sitting in her lap, and riding in the car. He is kennel-trained and knows how to give five. His basic training is a work in progress, and because he is a headstrong boy, he will be best fit for a home with an owner who can establish themselves as dominant. A stable, well-trained dog sibling would also be beneficial for him to learn the ropes from and follow the behavior of. Mercury is waiting to make a lucky family very happy!
No cats: " Mercury does not like cats. He chased moms cat even after she struck him. He now has cuts and is bleeding, so no cats for this guy. I do however think if it was a kitten raised with him they would be ok. Just not an older established cat."
