Scrappy Doo is a two year old Rhodesian Ridgeback/Pitbull mix who came to us from a shelter where he was no longer doing well in that environment. He weighs around 51 pounds.
He is good with other dogs and good with people. He loves to play and likes to play with toys, but can be protective if another dog tries to take away a high value item from him. He would be best with other dogs who don't care about toys.
He can be strong on a leash so needs a family willing to work on that. A gentle leader head collar can help a lot too. He is doing well on house training in his foster home but all dogs will need a refresher course in housetraining when moving to a new house and a new routine.
He can jump up a little bit when excited and he's a little bit more energetic in general so best with kids 8 and up who are used to larger dogs and not knocked over as easy. Scrappy eats his food pretty fast and is currently eating from a slow feeder bowl in his foster home. He isn't a vocal boy but will make a little noise initially when he's in his crate.
Scrappy is a cuddly boy who wants to find a family of his own. He promises to give plenty of snuggles.

This dog will be at our adoption event at the Woodbury PetSmart on Saturday from 11-2 looking to meet you!
Our fosters do the best they can to provide all information about the animal's background and temperament while in foster care in their home. An adopters routine and home environment is likely going to be different than that in their foster home.
Sometimes there is more that comes out about a dog's personality once they have been able to settle in a home and truly become comfortable. There are great articles out there written about the different stages a pet goes through after adoption, discussing transitions that happen at 3 days, 3 weeks, and 3 months. We highly recommend reading about this - it will help you understand the transition your new pet goes through.
