Update: Pluto has been adopted!
Here we have Pluto. Pluto is a male Pit Bull Terrier who is just over four years old. Pluto is another special case, large breed dog who wants to go home with a loving family who understands large breed dogs and has the time and resources to allow Pluto to thrive.
Pluto looks scary, doesn’t he? When I first met him, I thought to myself, wow! Just for starters this dog is large. He his also rock solid full on muscle. Pluto is very observant. What scares a lot of people about his type of dog is he will watch you. Pluto is very inquisitive and will follow you around with his eyes. Its almost un-nerving at first. I admit I was leery of him when I first met him.
Now that I know him, do you want to know something funny? Biggest baby I ever met! Now this doesn’t mean Pluto will be right for just anyone. He is still a large dog that needs proper training, patience from a calm assertive pack leader. Pluto desires exercise, discipline and love. Don’t misunderstand, Pluto isn’t a bad boy or out of control, he just needs the proper guidance. Pluto will want to be the only dog in the family and no small children. He wouldn’t hurt kids, but he is big and likes to play, so small children wouldn’t be appropriate.
As scary as this dog looks, he will sit at your feet as shown. If you allow him he’ll also gingerly stand on his hind legs put his front paws on your chest, look you in the eyes and give you kisses in trade for scratches and hugs. Pluto is a huge lovable baby.
If you understand large breed type dogs and have the resources, time and space to take care of one, you should visit the shelter and let us introduce you to this guy. He would make an incredible pet to the right person or family.
