Checkers is a one-year-old male pit bull terrier that is as fun as the board game and has the smarts to win you over. Sadly, nothing is known about his past because he was found wandering the streets without any identification. However, this hasn’t affected his joyful, affectionate personality.
Here are some things you should know about him:
- He loves spending time with people.
- He loves playing with toys.
- He is a high-energy dog.
- He is a young, playful guy.
- He needs his training to continue but he is smart and will learn quickly.
- He walks okay on leash.
- He is a very alert dog.
- The hubbub at the shelter easily distracts him, which is not unusual when his age is taken into account.
It seems as though no one had taken the time to train him before he was lost, but he loves his treats and will continue to learn basic commands if he receives positive reinforcement from a firm, patient person. Checkers loves to play and, although he might not master the board game, he is sure to win you over with his joy of life and engaging personality. A life with Checkers promises to be all fun and games.
