Hi, I’m Pepe!
I’m a brindle male pit mix about 3 years old and 55 pounds, who was rescued from an abuse situation, and I am eagerly looking for my new forever family!
The shelter staff describes me as very energetic and goofy (and very handsome, too!). I love to run, jump, play tug-of-war, chase balls, and am surprisingly nimble for my size. Oh, and I LOVE to roll over for belly rubs and show off for treats! I also give the best big sloppy kisses, and will crawl into your lap if you let me (even if you’re standing up!)
I do well with certain other dogs, not so well with others, so the shelter recommends doing a meet-and-greet first with any potential doggie housemates (unfortunately, I do not do well with kitties). I love people of all ages, although because I can sometimes be pretty jumpy and mouthy when I’m excited, I probably wouldn’t be okay in a home with small kids. I can be very affectionate and gregarious, and bond quickly with my people.
I still have lots of healthy energy, and will need a family that can give me plenty of daily exercise, attention and affection, as well as continue to work with me on my leash manners and training. I am housebroken and do very well in my kennel at night.
So if you’re interested in adding a big goofy handsome furbaby like me to your family, stop into CARES or call about meeting me today!
My adoption fee is $160, which includes my neuter, flea treatment, deworming, up-to-date shots, and microchip.
