Facts about Heath
Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix
Size: X-Large 101 lbs (46 kg) or more
I am already neutered.
Heath is a pretty laid back dude. This pooch loves to explore and see what's going on in the world around him! Heath is perfectly content just doing his own thing, and can't wait to meet a forever family who he can relax with! He's a strong guy, so he would benefit from some basic training classes to learn how to walk better on a leash. He can be a bit much for some dogs, so Heath would need to meet any potential furry friends before adoption.
Free Spirit Intelligent, independent, confident and clever, I prefer making my own decisions but will listen to you if you make a good case. We're partners in this adventure. Treat me like one and we'll both live happily ever after.
