About Capone (east)

Pit Bull mix
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

Hi, my name is CAPONE - ID#A4352624. I am a neutered male, white and tan American Pit Bull Terrier. The shelter staff think I am about 3 years old, and I have been at the shelter since Dec 05, 2019. Capone has a note about a bite on his record, but we have no details. He was very friendly, but scared and shy when coming into the shelter. For this reason, we recommend no small children and Capone should be the only pet in the home. He is eager to please, and loves to play, long walks, exploring. He knows 'sit', and is very food motivated. Capone is a sweet boy that enjoys love. At times, he thinks he is a lap dog, and will shower you with kisses. There is a rescue that wants to help him, but they need a foster that will meet his requirements. Perhaps a foster to adopt? This sweet boy deserves a chance. Here are some recent notes from volunteers here at the shelter: 3/9/2020 EVALUATION high arousal in kennel, tried to push out; pulled on leash; high arousal at fence; greeted friendly male dog initially, stiffened, direct stare; during next fence greeting, lunged, attempted to bite dog through fence; bring out again 3/26/2020 OBSERVATION 03/26/20 07:46 Dog is easy kennel pull from the back. energetic to the exit door. made a harness from his lead.

Please consider making Capone your next furry family member.
