NUGGET - ID#A233191

My name is Nugget and I am a neutered male, red and white Pit Bull Terrier and Boxer.

The shelter staff think I am about 1 year and 6 months old.

I have been at the shelter since Jan 21, 2017.

This information is less than 1 hour old.
Shelter Staff made the following comments about this animal:
(Web viewers: See Nugget's video below!)

Nugget spent a few nights with a member of the staff and this is what she had to say about him:
"He is a special boy still waiting for a home and a family to cuddle with. He is an EXCELLENT exercise buddy! With patient introduction to the bicycle on his first day, the next 2 days Nugget thoroughly enjoyed jogging next to the bike. Collectively, he jogged over 10 miles with ease in 2 days!

He is 99% crate trained, potty trained and for the most part a mellow dog that enjoys napping and cuddling with his people. He likes being goofy and staying close to the people he thinks of as family.
Nugget can be skittish about new environments, sounds and far away objects (he might be slightly far/near sighted). As many other dogs, Nugget is not a fan of sharing toys or yummy items (rawhides or bones) with other dogs. Due to this, Nugget needs to go to a household where he is the one and only cuddle bug.
In his previous home, nugget lived and interacted with kids of different ages and played well with other dogs.

Nugget has been at the shelter since the end of January! Is your home the right one for Nugget? Meet him today!
