Hello, my name is Hansel (A19165251). I am a 1-2 year old, medium sized, 36 pound, Terrier, Pitbull Mix. I am a cool coloring of white and light brown freckles. I was found as a stray but now i am safe at the shelter. I love balls and playtime. Thats right, hang with me and we will have a blast. Make sure you bring some treats too because I like to trade my balls for either another ball or a treat. You can use some treats to train me too since I like to jump alot because I get excited. I don't really know any commands but you can teach me some too. I will benefit with a family that will dedicate time to showing me what to do and how to be an appropriate boy, with some yummy treats of course. I am really friendly and sweet. I like people and was friendly with some dogs. I heard you have to bring in your dogs to meet me to see if we get along. And if you have cats I can be cat tested too. Do I sound like the kind of dog you want to adopt? Well Im here waiting for you so hurry on in and meet me!
