Van Gough's Info...
I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and not good with cats.
Van Gough is an adult male pit bull terrier with a lot of love to give! He is a very striking white all over. The first things you may notice about Van Gough are his uneven and barely-there ears. We believe an incredibly cruel human being tried to cut off his ears with a crude tool like scissors. When Van Gough was found his ears were open infected wounds, and he had given up on life. Once we brought him home from the shelter and got his ears nice and healed however, we were pleasantly surprised to see that all Van Gough needed was a little TLC to lift his spirits. It speaks to his inherently loving nature that after what he was put through he is still able to trust and love people as his companions. Van Gough would do best in home as an only dog or with a female dog playmate. He loves to play and is extremely affectionate, but gets overstimulated and overwhelmed at dog parks. His favorite thing to do is to chase water from the hose- he LOVES having the water squirted at him, and would do it for hours on end if you let him! He is gentle enough to be a good family dog with kids. He should not be in a home with cats. We are looking for a home for his best buddy Star also, so they can be together. these two are so bonded and we would love for them to be able to spend there lives together. Check her out on our website also, she is a love.
If you are interested in giving Van Gough his forever home, please contact Joanne at 925-337-6377. There is no adoption fee but we do ask for a donation to support Big Dawgs Rescue.
