Please Note: We can not guarantee breed mix or age or full grown size. They are an educated guess. 

Please note that a dogs behavior does change over time as the pup gets more comfortable over time. For puppies thier behaviour and developmental stages change from week to week. We try our best to keep our profiles up to date but once approved to adopt you will get a chance to speak to the foster parent to get the most up to date information prior to meeting the pup in person :) 

ESTIMATED TO BE: About 45 to 50lbs full grown 

Please Note: We can not guarantee breed mix or age or full grown size, Both are an educated guess. 

Home Recommendation: Can live in the city or out of the city. Is a puppy so has the potential to be an amazing pal in the city. Wouldnt say no to the burbs. A high active household that is ready to take on the joys (and lots of hard work) of raising a puppy. These pups need adopters that have some dog experience under their belt. Adopters should be really comfortable with taking care of dogs. Should have some primary dog ownership experience or really solid fostering or dog sitting experience (of high active breeds). Should have more experience than just petting a dog on the street or growing up with a dog. Adopters will need to be ready to spend a considerable amount of time and energy doing training - we are huge fans of professional training. Adopters need to be active people as this puppy will require a good amount of exercise and outdoor time as an adult: pit mixes are high active pups. 

Energy Level: Higher - As an adult will need a minimum of 90 minutes of walking/physical activity a day. 

Her Foster Mom Says: The latest on Gale is shes a sweetie pie who loves to kiss the face of everyone she meets, including other dogs. She is curious, playful, and adorably affectionate. She now listens to commands very well, and sits politely when begging or waiting for us. She can be naughty still (loves to steal our socks and shoes, and will pester our adult dog), but is easy to divert towards her toys, and responds well to clapping when we want her to stop. She pees and poops on the wee wee pad most of the time, and is starting to pee and poop outside as well. She generally walks well on the leash outside, but were still training her to not be too impulsive and demanding when she sees something she wants. She spends most of the day lounging and sleeping, and loves to cuddle.

Gale is such a sweet and outgoing puppy! From the moment I brought her home, she has been ready for adventure. She loves going on neighborhood walks with me in her sling and loves seeing new things and meeting new people. Everyone stops her on the street to say hi because of her striking blue eyes and her one black ear--and she loves the attention. At home, Gale will rarely leave your side. She follows me around the apartment just to check out what I am doing. She is happy napping on her bed while you work, but if you move into another room she will eventually follow to scope it out. When she has the chance, she loves laying right next to me, stretched along my side. Gale is very friendly with people so far and is very curious about other dogs. She naps most of the day, but when shes awake, she is alert and bouncy and ready to play. She loves to play tug and chew on things. Like all puppies, Gale is still a little mouthy, and particularly likes to chew on the edges of rugs or on shoes. With a little redirection she easily changes course and will chew on one of her toys. Gale is still learning how to use her pee pad but she gets better every day, and will give you cues when she needs to go. As she gets older, Galewill want more regular exercise, and would make a great active buddy for someone looking for a loveable and loyal companion.

Personality: Life of the party. Puppies this young are pretty similar to one another. Think lots of energy, equal amounts of napping. A zest for human connection and the potential to be incredible dogs with lots of training, routine and guidance. Puppies are incredibly loving and sweet. They just need lots of help learning how to be good boys and girls. Please note that a puppy this young is in the easiest stage of its puppyhood. Adopters should be ready for challenges and ready to put serious time, money and effort into training as the puppy grows into an adult 

House Trained: These pups have started their vaccine series so they are doing their business on primarily pee pads. its important to be ready for lots of clean up on aisle PEE. Consistency, praise and patience are the ingredients to house training puppies. 

Separation Anxiety & Leash Manners: On par for her age. Learning to self soothe. Cries for a few minutes when left alone. Too young for leash walks: just started DHPP series. 

Cuddle Factor: High - puppies are usually gluttons for affection and skin to fur contact lol 

Mouthiness: Medium to High - this puppy is just entering its teething phase so you can expect it to get worse before it gets better. These puppies are young so teething isnt bad yet. It will for sure be more challenging as she gets older. Puppies enter their high teething phase around 12 weeks old and can last for a few months. 

Good With Other Dogs: Yes! These nuggets are cleared to interact with healthy adult dogs but shouldnt be going on playdates with other puppies (they need a few more vaccine boosters before they are allowed to do that). Socialization with other dogs is a huge part of raising a puppy. They have all of the potential to be amazing with other dogs ... the ball is in your court. 

Good With Cats: Yes! Fun fact: all puppies are good with cats. Its up to the owner to teach their puppy to not chase the cat and to respect the cats boundaries. If you own a cat and want to add a puppy into the mix its very important that your cat has met a dog before and was comfortable around it. You dont want to ruin your cats life by adding a dog, no one wants to live with a grumpy cat. 

Good with Kids: Okay for a home with kind and respectful kids 8 and up. Adopters should be aware of teething stages of a puppy if they have children in the home. If adopting a puppy with kids in the home: adopters need to have a solid plan for handling puppy teething and children. 

Medical Status: Spayed and microchipped. Up to date on vaccines. Treated with de-wormer upon intake. Adopter will need to finish out the DHPP series (at least two more vaccines). Adopter will also need to do the Rabies vaccine at 16 weeks of age. 

How Did They End Up With Social Tees: Left at a high volume shelter in TN with siblings. Our rescue partner pulled them, had them vetted and transported to NYC. While in Social Tees care they are kept in attentive and loving foster homes. Many dogs are rescued from TN due to the lack of Spay and Neuter and a much smaller population of humans seeking dogs. In NYC we have a large human population which in turn means they find forever homes :) 

PLEASE NOTE: This animal is not at the Social Tees office all of our dogs and cats are in foster homes while they wait to find their forever families. :) If youd like to apply to adopt this pet, please complete an adoption application at Because we are a small team and receive hundreds of applications each week, we are unable to respond to every application and every inquiry email, but we do our best. Please have patience! If your application is approved, you will for sure hear from us. If you have questions, please take a look at the Adoption and Fostering FAQs etc. on our website as all common questions are answered there. Thank you for your understanding and flexibility as we work to save these innocent lives!!
