- Pit Bull Terrier
This is Ernest, one of the happiest, never look back, live for the day like it’s the first and the last all rolled into one dogs you will ever meet! He has been in foster care for quite some time and is finally ready for a home all his own so he can be someone’s number one man! He is looking for a home that is active, this is important, he is not a 'sit at home on the sofa all day' kinda boy. He loves a good hike or romp in the river, both at the same time if he has any input on the matter. His family would preferably own stock in a chew bone factory. This is not a requirement, but he reeeeeally loves his Nylabones and Benebones. He will actually hang out, sort of still for a while, happy as a lark. Other favorite things include belly rubs. Ernie tries really hard to chew on his bone and get belly rubs at the same time which takes some talent! He must spend at least 1/3 his life on his back hoping to convince someone to touch that belly! It doesn’t matter if he knows you or if you are a complete stranger that he has run across during a walk or an outing of some sort. Ernest knows basic commands. Even if he gets a little enthusiastic with life and wiggles like there is no tomorrow, he will do everything in his power to make you happy... or for a treat. But a treat means you are happy right? He knows how to sit and wait for his food until you tell him it's time, is crate trained and house broken. He will need someone that is willing to continue working with him to solidify his obedience and behavioral skills. He loves going out, on walks and riding in the car. Ernie has not been around cats or small dogs in his foster home and for the sake of setting up everyone for success we will not let him go to a home with either at this time. His foster home has been working on his leash skills but due to his prior medical issues which caused him to be on activity restrictions for a long period of time he gets easily excited when he sees people and other dogs. Ernie likes the other dogs he has met, but needs introductions and a walk first. Patience, exercise, structure and understanding are what Ernie needs to thrive. He would be perfectly happy in a home without other animals or as a second dog to one that fits his energy level.
