This lad, with his tweed rug, is Rambo. He is a 3 year old pitbull, currently living at our shelter, and waiting to find his new home. The ideal home for Rambo would be a home that he could have all to himself as we would prefer if he did not to have share it with another dog…we know he likes to be the only male dog, and he has not had much experience of females in our shelter. Because of his breed and as we do not know his history, we think it would be best for him to have a home all to himself, although he did meet our two tiny female terriers and had a happy sniff and wag with them. Ideally an area where he would not meet too many other dogs would be best for him, as even though he is a good boy on his lead and does not pull, he might be a bit reactive when he meets another dog. His new family should have experience of this breed or at least of large or restricted breed dogs, and must be aware that, as a restricted breed, he cannot be left off leash in public, should be muzzled, and should not be walked by unaccompanied children under the age of 16. He loves a warm, soft bed and is very fond of the couch in our shelter. No children under the age of 10 please. Rambo is vaccinated, neutered and chippedchip number 972274001376878, origin Ireland).
