About Holden

Adoption Fee: $50
Pit Bull mix
Age: Puppy
Sex: Male

Holden is an 9 month old male pit bull mix. He has a tan coat with white markings and weighs approximately 40 lbs. He neutered, microchipped, has no known medical history, and is up-to-date on all of his vaccinations. He currently is on Heartguard and Nexguard, and takes no other medications. My wife and I adopted Holden when he was 2 months old from Caring for Canines. We were drawn to his playful and cheerful personality. We unfortunately are looking for a new home for Holden. His temperament requires a lot of play and exercise which my wife and I are unfortunately unable to provide for him given living constraints and recent unforeseen financial circumstances. Because we do not have a fenced yard, we were taking Holden to doggie day care so that he can run, exercise, and socialize with other dogs. We are no longer able to sustain this, and as a result he has much pent up energy in the home that our older dog, Harper, is unable to keep up with due to a congenital condition rendering her knees fragile. Holden is a very fun-loving and playful dog. He gets along great with other dogs and humans; however, I think he would do best in a home without young children. Holden absolutely LOVES to run. He would likely do best with a family who lives an active lifestyle and ideally has a fenced in yard. He makes a great running partner, and I have taken him on plenty of jogs (he has better endurance that I do). He does have a tendency to 'pull' on his leash while on walks but is getting better with practice. Holden is very friendly with strangers, both dogs and humans. I am not sure how he does with cats or other pets. He is extroverted and approaches other dogs in a friendly and non-aggressive way. He LOVES belly-rubs and really thrives off of care and affection. Holden has regular elimination patterns. He drinks plenty of water and has a very big appetite. He takes about 2 cups of Purina Beneful Healthy Puppy Formula, twice a day. We try to keep plenty of toys to keep him mentally stimulated. Apart from routine examinations and vaccinations, we have only taken him to the vet for one sick visit secondary to diarrhea which cleared up with a short course of medication. If you or anyone you know would be interested in helping to find Holden a new home, please let us know. He truly is an amazing dog and my wife and I are heartbroken, but we ultimately want him to be happy and have a family who can meet all of his needs.
