Curious about this guy? His name is Burke. Burke is a young, probably over a year old, medium sized, 55 pound, grey brindle, Terrier, Pitbull Mix. Burke made his way to the shelter as a stray. This handsome young fella is very happy and energetic. He would do great in a home that will keep up with Burke's energy level. He really enjoys running around and chasing after toys. Watching him is a blast. He is a wiggle butt when receiving attention. Burke adores people and will sneak in a few kisses. Burke is in great shape and will make a great running partner. If he is harnessed, Burke is pretty easy to walk. Burke needs help being the best dog he can be. He does not know any commands and could learn not to jump for attention. However he enjoys receiving treats so training Burke will be a breeze. After some time away from his kennel, Burke goes back in without any issue and just lays down patiently looking at everyone as they go by. Burke will make a great addition to any family. He might be able to live with dogs so please bring yours in for a meet. This guy deserves a loving home and a new chance at life. Hurry in to meet Burke.
