Happy is a fine Pit mix of 1 to 2 years of age. One day he wandered into his present owner's yard, with a padlock on his collar, which probably means that he had spent the early part of his life chained with little or no interaction with other dogs or humans. The family took him in, but found that he was just too much for them to handle. He's a boy of 55 pounds, and he needs lots of exercise. His family takes him on 4 to 5 walks a day, but he has problems with other dogs so he is muzzled for each walk. However, he loves to play with people, and he warms up as soon as he gets to know you. Small children and other dogs or cats, though, wouldn't be a good idea. He does know basic commands and picks up on things quickly as he is quite intelligent. He's also house-trained and crate trained. Happy has made great progress with his present family, but they don't feel they can provide him with everything he still needs. Happy is definitely a dog with potential, but he needs a more experienced owner who could fulfill that potential. He's a sweet boy who deserves the kind of life that only that special and experienced person can give him.
