Adoptable Dog Of The Week – Barrels

We’d like to introduce you to Barrels, our Adoptable Dog of the Week from Barrels is a adult male Pitbull from Austin, TX. He is already neutered and up to date with shots.

Barrels is a big, curious, sweetheart of a guy. He’s affectionate and people oriented – just a beautiful boy overall.

He’s easy to leash and can’t wait to get out of his kennel for some action! All the sights and sounds are distracting to him so he hasn’t yet learned not to pull hard on the leash to get where he wants to go. Once he’s in a quiet outside area or inside, he focuses on his people and shows his loving, sociable side. He is calm for petting and loves to be loved on!

Barrels needs an experienced adopter who can help him learn leash skills, obedience, and manners. He will thrive in an environment where he has a strong leader to show him the ropes and where he can work for things. A smart, strong guy like this loves to be mentally challenged!

Barrels needs to be the only pet in the home. Since he’s a big, strong guy, a home with teens and adults would be best. All APA adoptions come with free behavior assistance through APA’s behavior team.

Barrels is a good boy who is waiting for someone to see his potential and give him a chance. Just look at those warm brown eyes – he has such a sweet spirit. Barrels has lots of love to give and will make a wonderful companion. Can you help this smart cookie reach his doggie potential?
