Lamar is a young boy, but he is pretty mellow and smart for his age. Lamar is a 6-12 month old, medium sized, tan with a white strip on his face and a white chest, medium sized, 41 pound, Terrier, Pitbull Mix. He was surrendered to the shelter because his owner claimed having a dog was too much responsibility. The previous family stated Lamar lived with small children. Hanging out with Lamar, he showed that he is a smart boy. He already knows the command sit and he is eager to learn more. He is treat motivated and takes them from you very gently. He walks super well on the leash as well. Lamar likes to sniff and play around with toys but then settles down and just chills. Lamar will make a great companion and family dog. His new family will be one that will dedicate time to train Lamar to be the best that he can be. Please allow Lamar time to adjust to his new environment upon going home with you. Please bring in your whole family to meet this great dog!
