This adorable boy, Hero, is one of a kind... look at that face! He's a 2-year-old pit mix who we rescued from a high-kill shelter in California, and is now in a Seattle area foster home waiting for his forever family! This friendly boy loves affection. He is dog friendly, walks well on a leash, and just loves treats. While he has not been evaluated with cats, outdoors Hero has a strong desire to chase anything small that flees - so homes with cats are not recommended.
Hero had tumors when we received him, which have been removed. They were biopsied and determined to be low-grade, meaning that still has Hero has normal life-expectancy - and his ability to be a wonderful forever-dog isn't impacted at all!
