𝗩𝗼𝗹𝘂𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗲𝗿 𝗡𝗼𝘁𝗲𝘀 I know no one ever wants a black lab/pittie mix, but Riddler has a white speckled chest!! So someone?s gotta want him, right?! This guy is such a good boy. He greeted me with a playbow as I leashed him and walked out very loosely. He said hello to his neighbors with soft tail wags and was happy romping around in the run. He knows how to sit and is so close to knowing how to lay down! He takes treats gently and did well on his temp test. When left alone in the run he can be pretty vocal, but otherwise he?s a chill, good boy!
𝗦𝗵𝗲𝗹𝘁𝗲𝗿 𝗡𝗼𝘁𝗲𝘀 𝗜𝗻𝘁𝗮𝗸𝗲 many aggrs pit strays roaming the area chasing the children that come off of the bus.

3/27 Dog greets at the front of the door with body facing towards me. His tail wags high and slow. When leashed he was biting the leash and backing up. I followed with treats and baby talk and he got it out of his mouth. He walked with a slight tense body to the outside kennel. He was pacing and looking for a spot to potty. Bring back in he had an open panting mouth and followed me with a semi loose leash.
