Beware - love at first sight is imminent! Dallas is a ~10 year old Pit Bull terrier who was surrendered to Philly's animal control shelter because his previous family was moving and could not bring him along. The shelter is no place for any pet, but especially not an amazing, social, older guy like Dallas so a City of Elderly Love foster family scooped him up and is now working to help him land his forever home!
Dallas weighs just over 70 lbs. and has the cutest black accents. His smile is infectious so be prepared to have people stop you to say hi! Dallas is currently living with other dogs and gets along with them great! His tail looks like a propeller when he gets to interact with other dogs and he'll do adorable little hops and play bows to show them that he's happy to see them and wants to be friends! He has no issues sharing his space with other dogs so he'd do well in both a multi-dog household or as an only pet. When he's not playing with his foster siblings or his favorite toy (kongs, squeakers, balls), you can usually find him snoozing on the couch, in his crate or at your feet. Dallas is crate trained and has no trouble snoozing in it while you're at work or at night (though wouldn't be opposed to sharing the bed with you!).
Dallas has some pretty typical pittie skin allergies and is currently on a medication called Apoquel to help him remain comfortable. He'd also do best on a high-quality, grain-free food. Otherwise, Dallas is a healthy, happy boy who may be a senior by age, but who has plenty of pep left in his step and tons of love to provide his future family!
Dallas is available for adoption through City of Elderly Love. He is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. He is also heartworm and lymes disease negative. Interested in adopting him?
