Nitro is a 1 year old Pittie mix filled with love and ready for adoption. The people that brought him in to us found him as a stray and kept him for a few weeks prior to bringing him here. The family said he was great with children of all ages. Nitro appears to be ok with dogs and cats but we would prefer you bring in your own dog prior to adoption. He knows his basic obedience and sits very nice for treats. Nitro is a wonderful boy that is ready to come snuggle up on the couch for the rest of the long winter. His adoption fee is $170 and includes his vaccines, deworming, fecal exam, heartworm test, registered microchip and neuter.
