Pet name:
Pit Bull Terrier
Are you one of those people who wishes they could have their cake and eat it too? Do you want a dog whos playful AND snuggly? Active but mellow? Let Shaw make all your desires reality! Shaw is a super handsome 6 year old American Bulldog/pittie mix who is awesome in pretty much every situation! Shaw came to CCR from Chicago Animal Control where his previous owners relinquished him because they couldnt care for him anymore. And do you know what they wrote on the paperwork to surrender him? "He is really friendly." Were not crying - youre crying! Shaw has spent his life as beloved pet, living with a family that included a 3 year old child. Now Shaw is back on the market through no fault of his own, and hes looking for the real deal forever family this time! 

Shaw has spent the past few weeks in foster, and he THRIVED! His fosters say he is the best dog ever - "He is an absolute angel and he will love anybody that pays attention to him! I cannot emphasize that enough. He was loving on us from the moment he came home and he absolutely basked in our attention. He is well adjusted and social with people. He loves to snuggle under a blanket and do little nibbles, or pull the stuffing out of a toy. He also LOVES tug of war and fetch, and doing crazy zoomies around the yard. It was evident from the start that he is crate- and house-trained and knows some basic commands that we have been practicing with him (sit, take it, leave it, drop it). He isnt a very loud dog. He lives to please."

Shaw is a happy, affectionate guy who likes to play and is happy to snuggle in for a belly rub too. Hes great on his leash and loves to go for walks with all of his human friends - and to Shaw, all humans are friends! Shaw is a great option for almost any home - no cats though, please! While he did have positive experiences with other dogs previously, he is a bit of an alpha and can be selective about his dog buddies.
