This gorgeous guy with the beautiful fur is Sully! He's a Pit Bull Terrier Mix who's approximately a year to a year & a half old, is neutered, current on his vaccinations, house trained, crate trained and likes hanging out in his crate! He's a really good boy when left alone and doesn't dig in the trash or become destructive. He was never socialized when he was younger so he's an overgrown puppy who's learning how to interact with other animals. He has never been aggressive - he just needs to learn boundaries and not get up in other dogs faces as most don't like that. He hasn't been around any children yet but loves being with people and gets so excited when meeting them!
We were contacted about Sully on a Sunday while he was in Animal Control in one county, preparing to be transferred to another county's Animal Control on Monday, where he would be euthanized Tuesday morning! The Animal Control Officer really liked Sully and kept giving extensions but couldn't keep him any longer. Thankfully, we found a Foster Home and he's now happily enjoying his life there!
We don't think Sully was shown love or affection during his short life because he just loves every minute of attention he gets! He's happiest when he's with his people, he follows his Foster Mom around the house and would be by her side all day & night, if possible! She even calls him her shadow! Very affectionate and full of sweetness, Sully loves to snuggle, cuddle & give kisses! He enjoys being touched and is a very happy guy when he gets belly rubs! He has gorgeous eyes and like to lay his head in his Foster Mom's lap and look up at her with those sweet puppy dog eyes - it gets her every time! He also uses those puppy dog eyes when she's getting ready to leave for work. He'll hang his head and pout, those beautiful eyes looking up at her, and she'll usually give him 5 more minutes of attention! He has a room with his crate in it and his Foster Mom likes to go in there and take taps with him sometimes. She usually wakes up to find him laying next to her, staring at her with his beautiful Pit Bull smile, and she can't help but smile back at this beautiful boy! His fur is a gorgeous black with a white tux on his chest and he has an adorable white line that goes down his face to his nose that is perfect for kissing!
Sully has a medium-level energy and tends to tire out easily. He enjoys playing, chewing on toys and even went swimming this summer! He enjoys jumping and can jump very high so if his home has a yard, it will need to be fenced-in and at least 6ft high. He had a few training sessions with our trainer and they have a great relationship! He's an intelligent boy who is very food motivated and eager to please his people, which helps a lot when it comes to training! He knows the commands Sit, Climb, Stay, Wait, and Ok. He always waits for his food, which only took a week for him to learn! He sits and watches his Foster Mom while she sets his bowl down and waits for her to tell him Ok, then he'll start eating. He's gentle and doesn't do anything when his food or toys are taken away, just wags his tail! This smart guy is a quick learner who also pays attention to corrections and it usually only takes once or twice before he understands. He thrives in an environment with rules & direction and he's looking for a Forever Home that will have that. Sully enjoys walks where he walks very well on a leash and he's well-behaved at parks where his Foster Mom is able to keep him focused and calm. He has anxiety about a lot of things, as he hasn't had many experiences, so he appreciates slow introductions to new things with his loved ones by his side.
Sully looks forward to finding a Forever Family who will love him deeply, be there for him and guide him daily! They must be receptive to a lot of kisses & snuggles, which will make their lives brighter! If you'd like to give this gorgeous guy with the beautiful fur the happy, stable life he deserves, please fill out an Adoption Application for Sully.
