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.

Background Info:

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
Age:  4-5 Mths
Weight:  Growing
Color: Liver & White 

Health Condition:

Pretzel appears very healthy. He was neutered and his incision has healed nicely. He's in great shape and weight for his age. 

Physical Description:  

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!


Living Situation:  

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.

Best Attribute:   

Pretzel has a personality to match is adorable looks. He loves to play and is learning commands fairly quickly.
