I am a beautiful 4 year old brindle-colored PIt Bull - but don't let my breed fool you! I am very kind, gentle and loving - and the happiest guy you'd ever want to meet (just look at my smile!) I am also a very big boy - and my size helps me when I make visits to people in wheelchairs, so they don't have to bend down as far to pet my soft fur. My Dad likes to tease me and call me a big pussycat!
Things I Have Learned from Humans: When you are well-behaved, you can break the stereotype that gives my breed a bad name.
Things Humans Have Learned from Me: Same answer as above...
Favorite Trick: Surprising everyone I meet by being so laid back, and gentle.
Favorite Treat: I love to snack on everything!
Make No Bones About It...I Am a Great Therapy Dog Because: I was raised by a great owner who worked hard to teach me manners, boundaries, and obedience. I have a very loving soul, and am the most gentle dog you'd ever want to meet. Once people realize that - they warm up to me instantly.
My Favorite Places to Visit: Parkside at North East, Forestview at Springhill, The Barber Center Senior Center. My volunteer handler is named Merchie.
