I am already neutered, housetrained, good with kids, and good with dogs.
Muzzy is 5 year old male pit bull. He's been with his family since he was 6 months old, but sadly, they find themselves in a situation where they have to find him a new home. Muzzy has been neutered, but is not up-to-date on his shots right now. He plays well with female dogs, but he has never been around a male dog so we don't know if that would be any different..
Muzzy is extremely good with kids and loves his family dearly. He is a hugger and loves attention from everyone. He has been around children from infancy on up. He has been handled a little roughly at times by them (tugged on and pulled) and he still loves them and treats them gently. Muzzy is not possessive when it comes to eating. You can place his food dish down and play with his food and he will not mind. If you give him something from your hand, he is so gentle when he takes it.
Muzzy does come with his share of challenges. He has shown symptoms of separation anxity by chewing and drooling when left alone. This could probably be treated with a combination of the right medication and behavior techniques taught by your vet. He's a bit of a barker too, because he's used to living in the country where there aren't many distractions to get his attention.
His family loves him dearly and would love to keep him since he's a member of their family. They feel they have no choice, but to let him go due to landlord issues. We're hopeful someone will see past Muzzy's issues and be willing to work with him for the reward of undying loyalty and steadfast companionship.

Sorry, but we are unable to take any new dogs at this time. If you can foster the dog that you need to re-home, we can post the dog on this site and pre-screen applicants for you. You must be willing to do further screening, introduce the dog to applicants and conduct a home visit yourself (with guidance from us). We are happy to offer advice and suggestions on the situation with the dog you need to re-home.
