A Pretzel is a type of baked bread product made from dough most commonly shaped into a twisted knot. Pretzels originated in Europe, possibly among monks in the Early Middle Ages.
Pretzel was brought into the shelter by a good Samaritan never to be claimed. We wouldn't let a sweet face like this be homeless. Pretzel has been transferred to a foster home where he is thriving
Adoption Fee: $150
Breed: Pit Bull
Sex: N Male

Pretzel appears very healthy. He was neutered and his incision has healed nicely. He's in great shape and weight for his age.
Big ears, stunning eyes, and a heart shaped spot on his chest. Pretzel's coat color is gorgeous liver with blue reflects. He's a stunning little guy. We actually expect him to be quite large as an adult. He's got big ole paws, lol!
Pretz is fostered in a home with a single adult, an adult female Pit Bull and 3 cats. There's a 4ft wooden fence in the yard with a couple large gaps. Pretzel is a curious little guy and has managed to find his way out of the yard through one of those gaps. Something to keep in mind if you have a fence that is not secure.
Pretzel has been great around young children, other dogs, and somewhat tolerates the cats.
Of course, Pretzel has a lot of energy. He is all puppy! The little guy is an outgoing little goofball, Happy and comfortable in his skin. Everyone's a friend. He is curious and clumsy and full of fun.
Behavior with people:
Friendly and at ease with everyone. Eager to meet new people.
Behavior with children:
He's met young kids and did well. Having said that, parents need to understand that toddlers and puppies require a lot of supervision and management. A home with older children is often easier to handle with puppies or teenager dogs, and a home with an adult dog often works better with very young kids. It depends on the parents leadership, experience and level of patience.
Behavior with other dogs:
Pretzel is fostered with Baheera. He loves his big foster sister and is learning the ropes of life through her. She acts as a mother figure, in charge but patient, and helps him improve his social manners with other dogs. The two of them became quick friends and Pretzel loves to share a home with a big sister.
Behavior with other animals:
There are 3 dog-savvy cats in Pretzel's foster home. Pretzel is still very curious about the cats. If a cat runs, he will chase it. But for the most part, they co-habitat without issues.
Crate training and house training are going well.
Pretzel has a personality to match is adorable looks. He loves to play and is learning commands fairly quickly.
