You may think that my name is RED because of my handsome brownish red coat. If you ask my foster mom, she would tell you it stands for Really Exception Dog. She thinks I am pretty darn near perfect. She can't believe what a dreamboat I am considering my past. The last 10 months of my life have been spent in the county animal shelter. I wasn't there because I was having a hard time getting adopted, but was being held while animal abuse charges were pending against my previous owners. I don't know details of the court case other than I was told that I don't have to go back to that awful place and I can now find a home where I am truly treasured. I was the shelter favorite, without a doubt! The workers did a great job of getting me healthy again and keeping me happy during my confinement. They were so excited when they found out I was going to be a Rover Rescue dog. I am a big lug and the best guess is that I am a Mastiff / Pit Bull Terrier Mix. A more loving dog is going to be hard to find. If someone tells you that a 90 pound dog can't be a lap dog, don't believe them! You don't need that negativity in your life. I am a great age, somewhere between 2 and 3 years old. My favorite thing to do is to hug my people. I do try to hug you while you are standing up, but I am gentle. My foster family says that jumping up is frowned upon so I am working on breaking the habit. I would be great for just about any family, but my size may be a little much for those unsteady on their feet. I take treats very gently and I am not a big eater. Don't tell anyone, but my foster mom is hand feeding me right now. She said I need to eat to keep my good looking physique. The vet did find that I have a slight abnormality on the left side of my mouth. It wasn't determined if it was a birth defect or a result of trauma. Whatever the cause, it has healed well, but sometimes my tongue will hang out on that side and I can be a little drooly. I am told that it just adds to my charm. I am not real crazy about a crate, but who can blame me. It hasn't been a problem since I have been accident free and not destructive. I am starting to play with toys and want the other dogs in my foster home to play with me. So far, I think my size intimidates them so I am entertaining myself. I do not have crazy energy as I am perfectly content to keep you company while you watch your favorite shows. If you are looking for an Really Exceptional Dog, please consider me, RED.
