About Goody (west)

Pit Bull mix
Age: Adult
Sex: Male

Hi, my name is GOODY - ID#A4391542. I am a neutered male, gray and white American Pit Bull Terrier. The shelter staff think I am about 8 years old, and I have been at the shelter since Mar 06, 2020. You would never guess it from his happy face, but Goody has the sad distinction of being our third longest guest here at MCACC- he's been waiting to find a home for over 100 days! Despite how long he's been in the shelter, Goody remains an unbelievably fun dog who's always up for play time. He's an older guy, around maybe eight years old, but you would never guess it when you take him out to play! He enjoys running around the play yards like a young pup, rolling around on his back with a big goofy smile on his face, and checking in with you to get attention (sometimes even rubbing against your legs like a cat). Here are the latest notes about Goody by staff who recently spent time with him: 5/24/2020 OBSERVATION Easy to leash; pulls hard on leash. Did 'zoomies' in play yard; came to handler when called; allowed petting; leaned in when pet, but mouthy at times. Very focused on dogs insight when in yard. Easy kennel return. 6/1/2020 ENRICHMENT asily leashed and walked well to yard. Once in yard became very excited. Ran around yard and solicted play from handler. Affiliative throughout. 6/12/2020 OBSERVATION Easy to leash & take to play yard. Explored yard some, but frequently sought attention. Alternated between standing still for pets, and walking back & forth rubbing against my legs. Sat on cue for treats. Took indoors to meet & greet room, appeared stressed when door closed, stood at door whining and was less affiliative. Much more comfortable and affiliative when outside. 6/20/2020 OBSERVATION Anxious in kennel; barking; placing on daily enrichment. 'URGENT' If you have no breed restrictions, please call ASAP = 520-800-4633 PLEASE NOTE: You must have an appointment to go to shelter to meet this dog.
