Pit Bull Terrier
DRACO - 1 year old, PUPPY! Mostly house trained, good with dogs (but plays very rough), playful, busy, curious, active, impulsive, needs obedience training, pulls very hard on leash. Not good with kids or cats.

Draco is all puppy, and big puppy at that! If youre in for daily obedience training and physical core training as he pulls incredibly hard when on a leash, Draco just might be meant for you! Hes a hoot! He can has some stranger nervousness so take it slow with meeting and introducing him to new people. Draco zooms around a yard as if a free bird! Hes also one who will crash right into you in play so you better be aware! Draco will need lots of daily time and attention. He has those puppy behaviors which require you to be on your toes making sure he learns his boundaries. Draco is accepting appointments to meet him so call VBACAC now at 385-4444 or go to our Facebook page and make an appointment to meet him!

***Additional notes from our behaviorist***

Bite inhibition (mouthy): mouths inappropriately, usually when excited or bored. Needs to learn what are appropriate targets for mouthing (ex., toys; not hands, wrists, or feet)-THIS WILL REQUIRE CONSISTENCY AND PATIENCE FROM ADOPTER AND FAMILY while working through this behavior; likely would take several weeks.

Obedience/manners: needs work on leash walking, coming when called, stay. Has worked on sit and shake.

Has a good work ethic as long as training isnt boring or overly repetitive
Food motivated; will work for squeaky or toys as well
Likes sniffing/searching; might be a good candidate for K9 SCENTWORK sports/training
Whines/cries when crated
