Bones is a pit bull mix (with bull dog, maybe?), male, neutered, microchipped, and up to date on all his shots. He is good with kids, other dogs, and showed little interest during one encounter with a cat (though he has not been fully cat-tested). He has a foster sister-dog who he likes to cuddle with but he’s not interested in wrestling or much play: he would prefer any dogs in his forever home to have a similar vibe.
Bones has had a very rough life up to now: he’s lost a hind leg and completed treatment for severe heartworm disease among other ailments. He is well now but hasn’t escaped fully unscathed: Bones can be a timid, anxious dude and will need a calm assertive pack leader to show that he doesn’t need to worry about thunder, fireworks, new people, etc. (YLDR will be happy to provide guidance for this). Bones’ anxiety has improved significantly in the couple of months with his foster family but he will always need a solid pack leader to continue that. He is also working on some separation anxiety and he would prefer a home where he is not left along for long hours at a time.
Bones is a very sweet dude. He’s goofy, wiggly, clumsy (still working out this whole missing leg thing… or he might just be a klutz), he loves a good nyla bone, naps, and being near his person. He’s working very diligently on his house and crate training- and manners in general, and he’s doing very well. Bones is a lazy thing; he’s looking for a person/family who’ll play for a bit and then chill on the couch and rub his belly.

Our adoption fee is $300 and includes all age appropriate vaccines, spay or neuter and microchipping. The breed and age included in this listing is based upon the opinion of a vet that has examined the dog. We cannot confirm the age of the dog unless the dog was born in the care of the rescue. We are located in the metro Atlanta area. We currently do not allow out of state adoptions as a home check is required as part of the adoption process.
