Theon American Pit Bull Terrier Adult Male in Hartford, Connecticut

My story
PLEASE NOTE! Unless stated otherwise, our dogs and puppies are located in Arkansas, and transported to the north/northeast once adopted. We do occasionally have dogs/puppies placed in foster homes in the north/northeast. In the cases where the pet is somewhere other than Arkansas, it will be noted beside the name of the pet.Introducing Theon! This handsome hunk came into rescue on April 29, 2021. He was picked up as a stray after we reviewed multiple calls about him wandering a neighborhood. He was covered in mange and scabs, open sores, and was full of infection. He also had every kind of parasite, including heartworms. The last photo is the day we rescued him. The others are from a few weeks ago. He has turned into a gorgeous dog, solid muscle, with a beautiful coat. Theon gets along very well with other dogs. He is not at all aggressive. He loves to play with his doggy friends here at the rescue. He would definitely benefit from some training to learn better manners but he is very eager to please and will learn fast. The biggest issue he needs to work on is jumping up on people for attention. A lot of that will take care of itself once he's in his own home where he is getting more attention and isn't crated for such long periods. Theon is a typical young pit bull - very energetic! He would do best in a home with a family who will give him plenty of exercise every day. That could be from outside play time, leashed runs, hikes, etc. He can keep up with as much activity as he is allowed. Theon loves all people and is a very social, good boy. He really wants to be a velcro dog - attached to his person at all times. He LOVES belly rubs and really any affection. He is crate trained and mostly house trained. He walks well on leash. He has been neutered and treated for heartworms, vaccinated, microchipped, and treated for mange and other parasites. He is doing very well here in rescue but he needs and deserves a home and family of his own. Theon is located in Arkansas. Transport to the northeast is available, with drop offs in MD, PA, NJ, and CT on Fridays.For more info, email Adoption application is on our website, email completed app to apps.aasr@gmail.comVisit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.Our typical adoption fee for puppies younger than 6 months old is $300-$350, and for older puppies and adults, the usual fee is $250.
