Update: 03/03/21 15:42 donor paying for Neuter & rabies to help w/adoption or rescue
02/23/21 15:20 Temp tested A508720 male Pit Bull with A508736 female Pit Bull. Neither showed aggression. Male was very dominant, trying to mount, female was afraid, she tried to make herself as small as possible. ml
Update: 02/04/21 15:27 Took him out to the play yard. He's a good, big boy who doesn't know his own strength or the word "gentle". Does not take treats gently nor toys. He will sit for treats and when you toss them, he will catch them with a snap. He does have some trainng but still likes to push some limits and jump up on handlers, tables and kennel doors. No young kids would be highly recommended due to his size and not being very gentle... plus he has happy tail that feels like a whip. ml
Update: 01/28/21 14:56 when taken out of the kennel, he does well with handler. ml
01/26/21 15:49 Each time I walk by him, he is becoming more and more vocal and excited. So energetic that its unable to say if it's excitment or aggression. I know he was very nice when he first came in so I want to lean that he's just being overly excited to see someone but I'm not completely convinced. Need more information and to observe him more. ml
01/21/21 Update:
01/20/21 13:22 Took out to play yard. Dog leashes easily and walks well on leash. Stop to smell others dogs as we passed by, no aggression.
Dog knows the sit command and will sit for treats. * Use caution when giving treats, mouthy. I would just toss treats to him. Not very interested in toys or playing catch. JS
01/20/21 14:34 Removed from kennel to administer treatment, animal is very gentle walks well on leash. He allowed treatment very easily without any issues, happy boy wags tail, very calm SMS
01/18/21 08:08 Dog has few issues. Right eye looks swollen and has green discharge. Left ear looks infected, possible hematoma, keeps shaking head. He also has mass near base of tail. JS
1/19/21 Very sweet dog
Dog has marked conjunctivitis OS. OD appears normal.
Otitis externa AU

"Mass" below tail is a normal enlargement of prostate due to being an old intact male.
