Hi, my name is Left Shark!

Young Large Male Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed

Meet Left Shark! Katy Perry’s left shark was posted on Craigslist by a concerned citizen – turns out he had two broken legs! Despite his rough start, Left Shark is an affectionate sweetheart — he is so kind and trusting despite his past. He is about 2 years old with piercing gold eyes and a rust colored coat.

Left Shark is highly intelligent and learned to sit and lay down in just 15 minutes, and he was crate trained in 1 day! He is working on being leash trained, and he loves other dogs and really loves kids. He enjoys a good, old-fashioned game of tag – he wants to be chased and then wants to chase you.  He also loves chewing on bones and destroying squeaky toys! “Ruffhides” filled with Himalayan chews are his absolute favorite! He has small bursts of energy and wants to play for a little bit but mostly he prefers to lounge around and hang out with you!

Left Shark is a love bug who wants to love you and be loved in return. He is fully content with just laying his head in your lap and getting his tummy scratched. He will lay with you for as long as you’ll sit next to him. He has the sweetest soul and is so kind and trusting despite his past. Left Shark can’t wait to find his forever home where he can learn the ropes. He is so smart and will need a home that can stimulate him and provide lots of love and attention. Could that home be with you?

Left Shark is available for pre-adopt only at this time, as he is heartworm positive. Heartworm disease is a non-contagious and treatable condition in dogs, but is fatal if left untreated.
