About Antonio (west)

Pit Bull mix
Age: Puppy
Sex: Male

Hi, my name is ANTONIO - ID#A4366375. I am a neutered male, black and white American Pit Bull Terrier mix, and I weigh about 62 lbs. The shelter staff think I am about 1 year and 2 months old, and I have been at the shelter since Jan 09, 2020. It is no secret that life in the shelter is really hard for some dogs . . . the stresses of the the shelter amplify over time, overwhelming the ability to cope. This sweet boy is so lost at the shelter. His kennel is a stressful, difficult place for him to be - as so for many dogs. Out of his kennel this boy is a soft, sensitive soul. As soon as we walked outside of the shelter gates, the transformation brought on by the changed environment was immediate and palpable. The farther we walked away from the shelter, the more Antonio felt at ease - it broke my heart to have to take him back to his kennel. But, back he went and there he waits- ever so anxiously. He is a great walking companion - walking with a loose leash and checking in often. He knows sit and could easily pick up other skills. With me, he was happy for head pets and ear scratches - seeking out affection in between walking and sniffing. Antonio could really use a break from the shelter - or better yet a home of his very own. Please consider sweet Antonio for your next furry family member before he goes on the list for euthanasia. 'URGENT' If you have no breed restrictions, please call ASAP = 520-800-4633
