Find your perfect pet with Pet Alert!

No Small Kids
Name: Claus
ID: 45283107
Breed: Terrier, American Pit Bull / Mix
Gender: Male
Age: 2 years 1 month
Size: Medium
Location: Awaiting Foster
FOSTER REASON: I'm waiting for a recheck on 9/22 but could use someone afterwards to help me find my forever home as I'm not doing well in the shelter.

FOSTER LENGTH: Ideally until I'm adopted but I need a minimum of 3 weeks.

FOSTER HOME: I'm looking for a place to hang around that is calmer than the shelter. I would also prefer a home that has a securely fenced in yard but could handle an apartment. My foster would need to be very active and take me on long walks to get all my energy out!

KIDS: I'm not sure about these rascals but could probably do we in a home with kids 12+. Please bring anyone from the age of 12-17 to come in and meet me!

DOGS: Since I was a little imaciated when I first came in I love treats. So much that I tend to be a little overly excited when people are handing them to me! The SPCA hasn't noticed and resource guarding but I think it would be best to meet and other dogs in the home to make sure we mesh well.

SPECIAL NOTE: While I'm not yet ready for adoption I am available for foster-to-adopt! Fill out an application to come and meet me.
