About Cheddar (east)

Pit Bull mix
Age: Puppy
Sex: Male

Hi, my name is CHEDDAR ID# AA4340605. I am a male, neutered brown and white American Pit Bull Terrier mix. The shelter staff think I am about 11 months old, and I have been at the shelter since Nov. 8, 2019. Cheddar has been added to the euthanasia list, and only has a couple of days left. He was put on the list due to behaviour issues. Here are the latest notes about him: 11/8/2019 - INTAKE ASSESSMENT High energy. Relaxed/wiggly body. Attention seeker/jumped on handlers. Allowed vaccines with light restraint. Walked to kennel on leash. 11/9/2019 - EVALUATION Some pulling on the leash. Soft entrance; appropriate greeting. Very friendly with the yard lead. Timid but had on and off social interactions. ADOPTED 2/27/2020 - INTAKE ASSESSMENT (RETURN) Friendly, allowed all handling. Hyper, very active. 3/8/2020 - EVALUATION Pulled on leash; energetic but allowed handling; high arousal at the fence with social male dog - high pitched bark, growled, snapped, grabbed fence with teeth and yanked; sent back; will try again. 3/10/2020 - EVALUATION High arousal at sight of other dogs; barking, piloerection in yard, grabbed/bit at fence when greeting friendly female dog; on leash, rushed to greet other dog, did not attempt to inspect, kept pulling toward other dog's face; handler attempted to get dog to settle in yard, dog would exit briefly. Cheddar, at 11 months of age, is only a puppy, and has not had the benefit of a stable environment and training. We believe he would be a good family dog if someone is willing to take on the challenge of training him. Most dogs, puppies in particular need at least 2 weeks in the home just to start feeling welcome. Please consider this diamond-in-the-rough for your net furry family member. 'URGENT' - If you have no breed restrictions, please call ASAP 520-800-4633. *NOTE: This dog is located at MCACC East: 2630 W Rio Salado Pkwy, Mesa AZ 85201
