All of our adoptable pets are housed with foster families. When age appropriate, they have been spay/neutered, crate, leash and house trained. They have all been living in a family environment so have been evaluated for temperament and personality. We believe that we should know each pet well enough to make sure that when adopted, everyone lives happily ever after.
Gage is a neutered male Pittie who weighs 55 lbs. He was seized in a dog fighting arrest in January 2011. At the time, he was so weak, not only from his wounds, but from hook worms, that he had to be carried. From the first he has been a friendly, sweet dog, not only to people but to other dogs and animals as well, although he will chase a kitty if it runs. Now that Gage is healthy, he loves to play and cuddle and is a handsome boy. He is house and crate trained and walks well on a leash but pulls and jumps from playfulness. Gage walks side by side with his friend, Shot Gun (another of the pitties seized at the same time) and they do well but have never been off lead together. They are crated side by side and seem fine, even at feeding time. Gage has completed a course of obediance and is very good with all shapes and sizes of people but he does, occasionally have issues with other dogs and we aren't sure what the triggers are. For that reason, we would like for him to be the only dog in the family. Gage is a great dog!
