Gonzo's Story...
Gonzo has a lot of energy for exercise and play but, he really loves to cuddle, too! He loves to run, play, fetch, and play wrestle with his furry foster brother. But, then he is able to settle and cuddle up to his foster mom during TV time. Gonzo is a very smart dog and is motivated by treats when learning new commands and tricks. He is an athletic dog that loves to jump up in the air for his favorite toy. He needs a human that will offer him regular exercise, athletic play, and quiet quality time, too. Gonzo loves kids but, due to his high energy, would do best in a home with children over the age of five.

Gonzo walks well on a leash and enjoys exploring new places. He is very social with people and would love to approach every human for kisses and wags if he could. He wags his entire body in happiness when greeted by people. He continues to work on his training of remaining calm and balanced when encountering unfamiliar dogs on leash. He is selective about which dogs he likes to play with and does best with balanced, confident dogs. He needs a leader who will continue to work on his training.
Gonzo is housebroken and crate trained. When in his crate he likes to chew on bones and work to get treats out of his Kong.

Gonzo was born December 2012 and weighs 55 pounds.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gonzo, a Alpharetta Pit Bull Terrier/Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pit Bull Terrier/Labrador Retriever for sale in Alpharetta, or seeking a Pit Bull Terrier/Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Alpharetta.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Alpharetta already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Alpharetta breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Pit Bull Terrier/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Pit Bull Terrier/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Alpharetta paves the way for another one to be saved.
