Adoption Corner!
This beautiful pit bull, Troy, is 60 lbs of caramel colored goodness. He is very well socialized with other animals, dogs and cats. He's chill most of the time but he's kind of a talker, so he will let you know when he wants something! He's under 2 years old and we think he's a real gem. He is currently in foster care after many months living in a shelter and we feel so lucky to have saved him. He is neutered and UTD on his shots. He knows basic commands such as sit, down, stay, wait, paw and place.
