Hi! My name is Igor. I’m a 10-week-old Pitbull boy. I came to live at my foster home when I was four weeks old because I had puppy strangles. Sounds scary but it’s easily treated with a couple of meds and lots of love. I’m all better and I will have no lasting effects from this puppy illness.
My foster home has me living with a bunch of dogs who have helped me with socialization, which is so crucial at my age. I am currently working on potty training. My foster mom says I’m doing well. I’m so smart that I learned how to use the doggy door when I was quite young. I am kennel trained! Give me a treat and I’ll go right in (I will protest for about 5 minutes then I lay down and go to sleep). Currently, I spend about six hours in the kennel and then I get a potty break. During the night, I sleep with my foster parents and the herd of dogs. I go all night without a single accident.
We have been working on basic obedience. I know “sit”, “touch”, and am working on “off”. I will do anything for a treat – I love food! I am living with a bunch of big dogs. My neighbors have a small dog and I like her. I haven’t met any cats, but I can’t imagine we won’t be friends. I love, love, love kids. They squeal, I get excited – we play. Puppy heaven!
Since I am a puppy, I still have some of those puppy behaviors. I love pants and feet. I just don’t understand why my foster humans don’t get that I should bite them as they flaunt them in front of my face. We’re working on this. I think I’m going to win this one – maybe. Foster mom says no. 🙂 You see, I’m kind of stubborn – I like to have my way. My foster mom says we have rules, and everyone needs to follow them. So, I guess we are working on that too.
If you are looking for a smart, sometimes stubborn, wonderful snuggler, cute, fun-loving, adventurous, little guy to be a part of your family – then I’m your guy! Oh, I forgot sweet. My foster mom says I’m sooooo sweet. Fill out an application and let’s get a date on the calendar! xoxo, Igor
