This 1½-year-old Pit Bull mix has the perfect name: Lion. It not only represents the bravery he must have had to survive as a stray, but also the courage he showed by trusting those who rescued him.
His foster family expects Lion to show the same bravery as he recovers from neuter surgery and undergoes treatment for heartworms (a mild case, caught early). In the meantime, they will continue teaching him how to be an indoor dog—he’s already mastered basic commands and crate training!
Lion likes to hang out with other dogs, but he shouldn’t go to a home with cats as he finds them way too interesting. Snuggles, car rides and walks are among his favorite activities.
As much as his foster family would love to keep Lion, they have a full house and are looking for placement ASAP. Set up a meet and greet with him today!
