$50 Adoption fee! Chance is a playful young guy with lots of love to give. He loves to be with other dogs, but sometimes plays rough (I think he previously had to fend for himself a lot) so will need to be partnered with fur siblings that will teach him playful boundaries. He is trainable and wants to please his people. He's a very happy, loving dog who LOVES the water! This dog is located in Pullman, WA. PetFinder allows multiple postings of the same animal as long as the postings are 100 miles apart from each other. This way we can reach far and wide to find the perfect home for this dog. If driving to Pullman is difficult for you, we will do our best to find a rescue partner to meet you halfway. INTAKE DATE: 9/5/23 FROM: stray in downtown Yakima MICROCHIP: 9001-1500-2932-582 DOG'S NAME: Chance BREED: Pit Terrier AGE: 1-2 GENDER: M NEUTERED: yes SIZE: Medium HEIGHT: 18 in WEIGHT: 45 lbs COAT: Short DESCRIPTION: gray NOSE: Clear EYES: Clear EARS: Clean MISSING FUR: Came to me with small amounts of fur missing all over. Checked for ringworm - all clear. I think they are healed over wounds, like he was used as a chew toy for an older dog. Since he's been with us, all his fur has grown back. EXPOSURE TO DOGS:2 adult females, several adult males INTRODUCTIONS TO DOGS: friendly, curious, playful INTERACTIONS WITH DOGS: cuddle on couch, play ball, wrestle, playful, seeks attention from other dogs FOSTER FRIENDS WITH: Marli and Sadie (my dogs) Ditch, Scout, Spot, Nanook EXPOSURE TO CATS: 2 adult female cats INTERACTIONS WITH CATS: wants to eat them, not sure if he will be trainable with cats. I always recommend on leash, slow introductions to cats so behavior can be corrected right away. EXPOSURE TO CHILDREN: teens RECOMMENDATIONS FOR CHILDREN: I would trust him with children over age 5 just because he is still puppyish and doesn't quite know boundaries yet. There hasn't been any signs of aggression, just rough play sometimes.
