Meet Nino, our Adoptable Dog of the Week from Nino is an adult male American Pitbull Terrier from Roanoke, VA. He is already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Nino’s Story:

Nino is a gentle, well behaved young man. He is very social to everyone that he meets and loves to be petted. Nino absolutely loves the outdoors, fetching a ball, and going for walks. He is an adorable goofball when it comes to water; he loves it!

Nino has very good leash and harness manners. He does not pull and stays very calm and by your side when walking. He would do best in a home with older (12+) children and no cats. Nino knows several commands and he is very treat motivated. He also does well riding in a car; roll him a window down and let him hang his head out and he is a happy boy!

If you are looking for a handsome boy who would love to go on hikes, fetch some balls, or just ride around with you and look really awesome, then Nino is your guy!
