This is Charlie, one of our bigger pit mixes at CISAR. He is 4-5 years old and very strong. He would do best with someone who has experience with the breed or other similar big dog breed. He has great basic obedience with sit, down, and walking by your side when on a correction collar. He does have a fear of men he doesn't know and trust, so this is something we are working on with him and his adopter would have to be patient with as well. He has the best smile, loves to be a lap dog and get belly rubs, and loves to play with toys. He seems to get along well with most dogs he has been introduced to and played with. You will not meet a happier dog even though he's been in the shelter for far too long.
