The Dude

Unavailable Taken in: 03/09/14
The Dude is a one year old deaf pit bull/dogo argentino mix who finds himself in the shelter because his family came on hard times and could not keep him any more. Even though he is deaf, he knows how to communicate with people- he uses hand signals and he is an expert at reading people's emotions. He knows 'sit' and 'down' and he LOVES to play with other dogs. He does not care for cats, though! He did live with children in his previous home but we recommend that he go to a home with no small children who may startle him. The Dude likes to ride in the car with his nose sticking out the window to take in all the smells. He likes to chase tennis balls and will play fetch. He is a great running partner, too! He LOVES the kiddie pool and water- it is so much fun to go swimming after a run! He was also used to being in a crate when left alone. The Dude does require a special owner who is willing to give him a secure environment where he can not get lost or injured and where he can have consistency in his training.

If you would like to inquire about The Dude, please call the shelter at 412-345-7300, ext. 215 or email kparis@animalrescue.org. His adoption fee is $115.
