Vito brings the fun! While we can’t be sure of his DNA, we know this boy is an all American mix! He is about 3 years old and quite the leg leaner, independent but loves to be near his people. Vito is an energetic boy who is into playing outside and exploring. Throw him a ball and he’ll be your best friend. Vito likes to hunt around for chippies and needs a home without cats. Vito LOVES to play in our fenced yard with a tennis ball, jolly ball, squeaky ball, rope, he’s not picky. He does great at “trade” and is learning basic obedience. This boy will sit all day, eager to please. He does great with handling, baths and nail trimming, since his foster home went slow and earned Vito’s trust. He loves his people and will take as many head/ear scratches as he can get. He is crate trained, house trained and pretty good on the leash too! Vito is happy to take walks with other dogs and is polite in public. When it comes to play, Vito is a rough and tumble dog and his enthusiasm is too much for children and can also be a bit much for other dogs. Vito would be quite happy being an only dog, but we can’t rule out him enjoying a playmate that shares his same WWE philosophy. Based on his breed and personality, we think a female playmate may work out better than male. This boy is a love, looking for the right match to snuggle with and be his forever home.
