Adoptable Dog of the Week - Bart

Cute and silly, this goofy boy will steal your heart from the get-go! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Bart, a 2 years old Pit Bull Terrier from Parkersburg, West Virginia. Bart is neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. As Bart lives in the shelter, he hasn’t been tested around other pets or children – a meet and greet would be required if you have kids in the family, or another dog or a cat.


Bart’s Tale


Rambunctious, full of life, and with a big heart, Bart is more than ready to be the center of someone’s world. If you want a happy-go-lucky dog that’s bursting with energy and has affection to spare, then Bart is your guy! This silly fella will flop his whole body into your arms for some quality cuddles and will love nothing more than being snuggled and petted all the time. Of course, you should have in mind that Bart weighs 55 pounds and he’s a big dog, so in the process of jumping into your embrace, he might knock a few things over… or even you, if you’re petite. Well, his response – if he could speak – to all the ruckus he makes would probably be "I didn't do it man!" or "not my problem, eat my shorts!", so you should be easygoing enough to embrace that this chonky boy just likes having fun and enjoy the “ride”. Bart is a sweet, laidback dog but hasn’t been officially tested with other pets or children as he resides in the shelter – if you have kids in the family or other pets, it would be best to inquire about a meet and greet to see how Bart gets along with them.


In case you’d love to share your life with a silly, lovable pooch like Bart, contact the Humane Society of Parkersburg to learn more about him and the adoption process.
