Meet Butkus, he's a approx. 2-3 year old pitbull/sharpei mix. Don't let his pictures fool you, he's not a tuff guy at all, he's a marshmallow. He does like to play but he's not anything like he looks. Poor guy!!! Butkus came from Tennessee after his previous owner was going to kill all his dogs just because he didn't want them anymore so a very nice lady took him and some others in with the hopes they would pulled to rescue. And here is Butkus. He's a big boy at about 60 pounds but don't think he'll grow anymore due to his age. Butkus is a GREAT dog, he's friendly, playful and gets along great with other dogs. He's actually more on the submissive side and he also appears to be housetrained. He can be a little jumpy when he gets excited so older children will be best with Butkus. Butkus loves little squeeky toys and will chase a ball for hours if you let him. I really think he is going to make a great family pet as he loves everyone. But if you rent you must show proof that you can have a bully breed. Butkus has been neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped. If you would like to hear more about this very nice boy please call Jody at 708 268-6965. His adoption fee is $225.00.
