Meet TRUMAN! . This stately gentledog is about 5 years old and is a 55 pound brown and white Pittie Mix. Truman was found as a stray but we are confident he will soon find an awesome loving family. Meanwhile, Truman awaits his family at the shelter where you can find him napping on his bed and generally just chilling out after a nice long walk.
Truman is pretty easy to handle and walks nicely on a leash. He enjoys treats and meeting new people (especially if you have treats). He is very curious and likes to sniff around. He met some dogs, gave them a quick hello sniff and kept it moving. He does not have any issues with food or with body handling. Truman is a really good boy. We think you should hurry up and meet him and let him nap at your place! If you do, please allow some time for Truman to adjust to his new life once he goes home with you. Once settled in, Truman will make a wonderful addition to your family.
Truman is part of the Pen Pal Program at ACCT and has TWO volunteers dedicated to finding him a great home or foster. His Pen Pals also spend quality time with him trying to keep him as stress free as possible while living in the shelter. Truman's Pen Pals also work on teaching him to be the best dog he can be, socializing him, teaching him some basic commands and giving him plenty of snuggles. If you have any questions about Truman or adopting from ACCT, please email his pen pals: email@example.com or katherine.ACCT@gmail.com
