Papa is an adorable, brindle and white, fluffy pit mix. He was surrendered to us by his owner due to behavior issues. Papa does have issues with people near his food. Unfortunately, Papa was acquired from his previous owners at just 8 weeks old, so if food issues developed as he got older, it would seem that they didn't nip the behavior in the bud. So here we are, Papa is now 2 1/2 years old and he is homeless, sitting in an animal shelter, hoping he gets a second chance. Papa is super sweet and friendly with people, but due to his food issues, we are recommending him for a home with kids 17 and up. Papa is social with other dogs and is said to know the commands "sit", "stay", "come" and is house trained and crate trained.
