Terrier, American Pit Bull
3 Years and 6 Months old
Hello! My name is ONYX (my Foster momma calls me Onnie).
I am almost 3 years old. I am a handsome Slick Black with a little splash of white AMERICAN BOY (Pit bull).
I am a good boy and looking for my forever family. I love love long walks with my foster mom. I am strong so I need a strong but loving hand. I forget I am such a big boy and like to jump in your lap and just love on you. I get along with all dogs; big or small. I currently live with 12 dogs and I love them all.
I am kennel trained. I walk on a leash very well. I just recently got neutered so I do still have a small desire to mark my territory. The time he has spent inside and off leash (once corrected the behavior to mark) I know to potty outside. The best part of me is I just want to please my human so I am quick to learn the rules of my new home.
I haven't spent any time with little humans so I would need some instruction and supervision. Just because I honestly forget how big and strong I am.
I must confess I have a very strong desire to stalk cats. I can NOT be trusted with cats.
I like to jump so if you have a fence shorter than 4 or 5 feet I will jump the fence like an Olympic athlete.

Something to Consider:
If you aren’t willing to train a puppy every single day, don’t get a puppy! It isn’t a one-shot deal. You have to be dedicated. And if you aren’t making progress – find someone who can help. Enroll in a puppy training class or hire a trainer. Most cities across the nation have some sort of availability for this kind of help and at different cost levels that would fit your budget.
Puppies are going to poop a lot and pee even more; chew on everything; bite everyone; scratch people and furniture; steal things; destroy something at some point; pull on the leash; not move at all on the leash; bark; cry; beg for attention; and the list goes on. You’re going to have to walk them, bathe them, pick up everything below waist height, buy new shoes, and most importantly: TRAIN THE PUPPY NOT TO DO THESE THINGS! Ultimately, it is your responsibility to teach your puppy that this behavior is unacceptable.
