Diego is a 9 months old goofy, loving, full of energy pit bull mix. He is crate trained, potty trained, knows basic commands and is up to date with vaccines. Unfortunately my 5 year old son pulled his tail while he was eating and Diego snapped at him and made contact. My son had to get stitches and because of that we are unable to keep him. Diego will need a little more behavioral training to make sure that this does not happen again while eating. Due to his situation I feel that he would be best suited with a owner that does not have kids or is around kids often. He absolutely loves to play with other dogs and is great with children (like I said do not feel comfortable if in the same house). We cannot stand the thought of him being euthanized due this incident and have hopes of being able to find the perfect adopter.
