Facts about John

  • Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
John seems aloof in his picture but rest assured he is not! John was afraid of the camera and was looking everywhere he could except at that scary thing. He decided he wanted hugs from the photographer rather than pictures. We'll try again on another day (with a longer zoom lens so he won't even know we're taking his picture).

John's a very sweet dog. He is definitely a people "person". He's loving and friendly to all. He's around 2 years young, weighs around 50 lbs and is healthy but for a case of heartworms which we'll pay to treat.

Heartworms aren't contagious, you and other animals will not contract heartworms from John. They are curable when caught early and show no outward symptoms except in advanced cases (coughing). Heartworms are caused by mosquitoes and are all too common here in the south but are completely preventable with an inexpensive monthly pill. John is taking a monthly pill (which we will pay for) until a blood test (which we'll also pay for) shows he's rid of them. This could take 6 months to over a year. We've had many happy adopters who've rescued a heartworm-positive dog. Speak to your vet if you need more feedback.
