This ‘Gentle’ Guy is Looking for a Forever Home

A concerned reader emailed us about this dog that’s listed on If you know someone who can help get him/her into a forever home, please pass this along to them.

I am a neutered male, tan Pit Bull Terrier mix. The shelter thinks I am about 7 months old. I have been at the shelter since Nov 29, 2017.

Joey is a nice small size and is remarkably calm for his young age. Though he displays some puppy exuberance, it’s evident there is a wise old soul inside! He is mellow and gentle, quite good on the leash, and does a beautiful ‘sit’ on command. He is affectionate and observant. Though he has some growing to do, he will stay on the small side.
