Breed(s): Terrier, Pit Bull
Say hello to Elijah! This ten-year-old pit bull is a total sweetheart who loves to sleep. In fact, his foster mom says if he were one of the Seven Dwarves, he would be Sleepy! He would love to rest his head in his forever home. Elijah is a great cuddler. He loves being by his humans at all times, but also enjoys a break from them to lay in the grass or dirt. He is blind but hears pretty well, so slow introductions are a must for him. But once he knows someone, he's a friend for life! Elijah is housetrained and does well on a leash once he gets comfortable with his surroundings. He also gets along well with other dogs and kids, but only with a slow introduction so he's not startled or scared. Elijah is a very affectionate boy who will wander around the house looking for his people, and then is so happy when he finds them. An ideal home for him would be a relaxed one so he's not startled. He loves bonding with his humans so he'd love a family that could be with him most of the time. This old boy deserves the perfect forever home. Could that be with you? Apply to adopt Elijah today!
