Luke - Our Foster Dog
Luke! Okay... this little guy... I have no words to explain how wonderful and goofy this gremlin is. He is almost a year old and is completely trained, off leash reliable and everything! He was trained at Bay Area Family K9 Training and if interested you could go there and learn what he knows! This 35 pound bulldog mix is an absolute gem. He is the sweetest, goofiest, cutest munchkin alive. He loves to play but doesn't need a ton of exercise. His favorite thing to do is cuddle. The second you start to rub his side he leans into you, full body weight. He walks perfectly on leash and has no prey drive. Seriously, a cat or squirrel could stare him in the face, taunt him to chase, and he'd just stare and lay down. He's also amazing with other dogs. He greets every dog with a happy butt sniff and wants to play, he ignores dogs that lunge at him (on and off leash) and he has also learned that some dogs have boundaries and don't want to be bothered. He is an all around awesome mutt who just wants a family/couple/or person to love him. For those of you interested or know of anyone interested please let me know! It has been quite an emotional roller coaster though, I must admit. (sad rant coming up)
The reason this process has been emotional is not because of Luke but because of the people who have expressed interest in him. I've had quite a few people who have wanted him (because WHO WOULDN'T?!) but the most recent couple interested in him decided not to take him. When they told me they were no longer interested, I was a little bummed and confused because they were absolutely in love with him. I asked what made them decide against him and they said "we have reservations about him being a pitbull." I'm utterly shocked. Sometimes I forget how deep the pitbull stigma runs. To meet a dog they absolutely love, who is completely trained, and perfect for them and for them to say no purely because he is a pitbull... I just can't believe it. This last bit was just for me. Sorry for those who read it and didn't want to, I'm just really... sad.
Other than that last bit... If you are interested in him or know of anyone who may be, let me know! haha
