Weekly Adoptables: Boats the Pit Bull Terrier/Retriever

Dogs just like this one are available for adoption at DeKalb Animal Services.

By Yvonne Samuels

This sweet boy has been through a lot. When he arrived at the shelter he had a severe case of mange, but with lots of care he is cured and he's gorgeous!

Now feeling fine he's achieving great grades in Charm School. See how nicely he sits for treats! Boats has learned to walk nicely on a leash - what a gentleman. He knows the sit command and the down command and can even perform touch with his nose on command. While undergoing his treatment for mange, he lived in a foster home. There he was crate and house trained. Boats is the full package; he has it all!

Boats is happy going for a walk and sniffing the grass or playing with a squeaky toy in the back yard. He is such a sweet, affectionate boy. Boats is an American Pit Bull Terrier/Retriever. He had a rough start in life, but now he's ready and deserving of a real home - a forever home.

If you have it in your heart to provide a home for a loving shelter pet; please consider Boats. If you come to see him, you'll love him and he already loves you and he hasn't even met you.
