Knights, assembled! Honoring my name, and as the truthful king of smoochies, I’m looking for honorable folks to spend the rest of my life with. If you’re up for becoming a part of the Pittie round table, I’m your perfect match!
I am a sweet boy who is super handsome, calm and well-adjusted to being around people.
I was found on the streets of Mexico wandering around; it seemed as if I hadn’t been abandoned for very long. I almost got ran over by a truck, but my rescuer managed to get me out of the avenue, safe and sound.
My rescuer and her family decided to take me in, so I could be safe. Apparently, my looks could have put me in danger. Sadly, my rescuer’s country isn’t the most pitbull-friendly place.
I must’ve had experience with travelling by car before, because things went perfectly all the way to the vet. The doctor said I had no health issues, and after a few days, I got neutered, vaccinated and dewormed (not my favorite moment, to be honest).
Since then, I’ve been taken care of by my rescuer and the vet’s team, especially by a very sweet 14 year old guy with whom I spend the most time. I can get a little anxious when “my" person leaves and will softly whine. https://youtu.be/939J5WPyZe4.
I don’t care much for crowds though and feel a bit stressed at that time.
My caretakers say that I’m the smoochiest dog ever, a good kiss is all it takes for me to be ever affectionate and just overall happy.
Listening is one of my strongest suits, so you can always count on me for that. I love sausages, so they’d do the trick if you want to train me. I can be a little stubborn at first (I’m a king) but I learn pretty fast, so I’ll pick up the commands after a short time. https://youtu.be/2r8GFznskqo.
I always have a great time exercising, but I know how to walk calmly on a leash and pretty well ignore most everything. https://youtu.be/S5p7IPOBrvQ.
I’m smart, obedient, clean, and house trained. Yea. I like other dog’s company, but I think I will do best as the only one in the house. I sometimes move forward and growl at other dogs when they get too close. With a couple meetings, I usually become friends. I don’t like sharing my toys with other dogs when playing though. https://youtu.be/IxHbYTo5rj0.
I have been around a couple of young children and it went well. I just think I might be a little strong to hang out with them often, but I definitely get along with teenagers. They’re my favorite!
Not usually many problems with cats, but since I don't like them too close, I can growl when I get stressed, and they can make me a little tense. But you can be sure that my years in this world made me a true gentleman, emphasis on the gentle part!
I don’t know why, but recently I’ve started to bark at many things while in my crate. I'm typically not much of a barker. I just want to be part of a family, where I can hang out with you.
I enjoy any kinds of activity with my human knight, whether it be relaxing after a long day, or racing together in the morning. My energy level depends on what I’m doing, so I can be pretty relaxed while watching a movie or pretty energetic while playing ball (I love it!).
I’m a very adaptable guy. A back yard with a tall fence (since I know how to jump quite high when playing ball– yes, I am quite athletic) would be nice, but I also like going out for walks to enjoy the air and the view. I look forward to starting a new life in Canada and will be sure to bring lots of love and fun to my new home!
I have been neutered and vaccinated.
My adoption fee is $500.00 CAD, this includes my airfare to Canada.
