Hi, I'm October! I'm an adorable Pit Bull who's in search for the perfect home. I was found as a stray a nice stranger brought me to HHHS so I'm more than ready to find a warm, loving home. Are you the one for me? I hope to see you soon.
HEIGHT: 17" at the shoulder WEIGHT: 61 lbs.
HOW MUCH EXERCISE DO I NEED? I'm still young and active. I love to go outside and run, so I need a family that will give me the energy release that I need. I'm an excellent walker but I can pull so I would love to go to training classes with my new family.
DO I HAVE ANY SPECIAL TOYS? I'm not very picky when it comes to toys. I do love stuffed toys. Especially the ones with squeakers!
AM I A GOOD INSIDE DOG? I would love to live inside so I can spend lots of quality time with my family. Please just take me out to exercise often, and don't be afraid to crate me when you aren't home!
DO I LIKE CATS? I haven't been around cats while here at shelter so ask your adoption counselor to do a cat test to make sure we get along.
DO I LIKE CHILDREN? I will do best in a home without small children.
DO I LIKE OTHER DOGS? I haven't had much of a chance to interact with other dogs while I've been here. Make sure to bring your canine family in with you to meet me to make sure we get along.
I'm not quite a puppy anymore, but I'm not a mature dog, either. I have lots of energy, so I need a family who can help me put that energy to good use. I would love a daily walk, plenty of chew toys, and some obedience training. I have the potential to be a great dog, and I need a family who can see that potential and is willing to work with me to achieve it! If you're looking for a long-term companion, I have many happy years ahead of me, and I would love to share them with you. Please ask an Adoption Counselor at Helping Hands about me today! Love October.
