This gorgeous young man with the stunning eyes is Burke! He's a Pit Bull Mix who was born on 4/16/2014, is neutered, current on his shots, house trained, crate trained and doesn't mind sleeping in his crate at his night. He's a friendly guy who sometimes needs a few minutes to warm up to people but once he does, he's your buddy forever! He gets along very well with dogs, cats & kids and would love to find a Forever Home that has a playful dog his own size so he can have a companion & playmate.
Burke is sweet & affectionate and enjoys giving kisses! He prefers to spend his days playing & being active and enjoys spending the evenings with his people, cuddling & watching tv. He has a daily ritual with his Foster Mom that they both love. When she comes home from work, he patiently waits until all pets & family members have greeted her then they go into her bedroom for his Special Time, where they watch Law & Order: SVU together, with Burke's head in her lap. It's a great way to let go of the stress of the day and enjoy some sweet love from this handsome boy! He occasionally spends the night in his Foster Parents bed, which he loves, but he tends to hog the bed so he usually sleeps in his crate. He's pretty easy to please, loves belly rubs and enjoys spending time with his Foster Family's daughter. He also has a ritual with Foster Dad that's both funny & adorable. Whenever his Foster Dad gets up from his recliner, Burke will run over & jump on it, stealing his spot! His Foster Dad comes back in the room and 'complains,' to which Burke replies with an adorable head tilt and gives him his paw before jumping down! He's sweet, silly & such a great boy to have around! If you didn't notice his stunning eyes, he has Heterochromia, which means he has two different colored eyes, and they're so gorgeous, we could stare at this beautiful boy forever! He has pink on his nose and around his eyes, which just makes him even more adorable, and when he smiles, you can't help but smile back at him!
A big bundle of energy, Burke loves his playtime! He prefers playing with dogs his own size so they can run and keep up with him, and he tends to ignore the smaller dogs. He has a blast playing with his Foster Family's female Pit Bull and he also has a lot of fun playing with their daughter! His favorite toys are balls and he loves running, chasing & playing fetch. Because Burke's energy is so high, he needs daily walks or exercise to keep his energy levels low so he can remain happy & healthy. He is definitely not the type of dog who would be happy laying around all day as he needs to play, run and have mental & physical stimulation. When it's time to relax after a day of play, he likes cuddling with the dogs in the house and taking a nap.
Burke is a very smart boy who's eager to please and treat motivated, especially if it's his favorite treat, cheese! He knows the commands Sit and Down and is working on Stay. His Foster Family realized he learns the most & pays more attention when his energy is lower and he's calm so they usually take him for a walk or play a game of fetch before teaching him new commands or behaviors. He's still a young boy who tends to get excited and it takes a little bit to calm him down so he needs a Forever Home that will have the patience to work with him and understand his energy needs to be low so he stays calm. Burke loves going for walks and would make an excellent jogging or running buddy once he learns better leash manners. This beautiful boy enjoys going for car rides and is well-behaved in public once he calms down after the excitement of meeting people and being in a new place. He attended our K9 Carnival recently and had a great time, especially when he was giving sweet kisses in the Kissing Booth!
Burke can't wait to find his Forever Home where he will be loved & cherished and spend his evenings cuddling with his people after a long day of playing! If you'd like to give this gorgeous young man with the stunning eyes the life he craves, please fill out an Adoption Application for Burke.
