Sarge is a large (59lbs) 1-year-old pitbull who was brought to us due to his owners moving and being unable to take Sarge with them.
Sarge is a very large and in charge man. He pulls very hard on the leash and would benefit from consistent training for leash manners. Although he’s a big, burly, man, he is scared of vacuums and squirrels. He enjoys chasing tennis balls in the play yard and shredding up stuffed toys. Due to his boundless energy and strength, he would be better suited for a home with older children.
Sarge has gotten along well with other dogs while in our care but would prefer a meet and greet before going home with his potential best friend.
Sarge has been diagnosed with Lyme disease and has been showing symptoms of lameness while in our care, therefore, he has begun treatment. Lyme is a tick-borne illness that can be treated with a 21 day cycle of medication but may have long lasting side effects. Sarge has also undergone treatment for a tail amputation due to being stressed in kennel and developing “happy tail”, when strong tail repeatedly hits solid objects with force while wagging resulting in the thin skin of the tail splitting open.
