This handsome boy is Alex. He is a 2 year old pit bull mix. We think he might have some Boston terrier in there. He has the cutest underbite.
Alex is a super sweet boy. So far he loves everyone he meets. He is a very playful boy. He does get mouthy when playing. We are working on that. He does love toys so we are working on getting him to play with toys instead of hands. He is making progress, but still needs constant reminders. He is especially bad when playing out in the yard. Alex does jump on people as well. He is also a freight train and will run full tilt into you. Due to these I would recommend a home with older kids.
Alex loves to entertain himself with his large toy bin. He is rather destructive with soft toys.
Alex has done great on walks. We do use a gentle leader because he tends to pull on the collar choking himself.
Alex gets along with other dogs. He really wants to play with his foster sisters, but they are a little intimidated by his size. He has not been around cats yet.
Alex does great in the car. He really seems to enjoy riding with his people.
Alex is crated at night and when we are gone. He has to be lifted in the crate, but then does well.
In the week Alex has been here he has not had any accidents in the house. You do have to go outside with him to encourage him to go potty, however. He does not seem to be a fan of wet grass.
Alex would love a family to go on all sorts of adventures with.
