All about Grover
Animal ID: 51002850

Grover is a 3 years old male American Pit Bull Terrier/Mix who weighs 36 pounds.

Age: 3 years
Weight: 36.9 kg (81 lbs)

A little bit about me:
- unknown history with cats and small animals - has displayed prey drive so introductions should be slow and supervised
- Potential for select other dogs pending appropriate introduction
- Not for off-leash parks at this time
- Kids unknown; supervision recommended, all members of household should be old enough to read and respect body language
- Requires active, structured home with regular exercise and daily enrichments for mental stimulation

Hello, I'm Grover! I'm a boisterous, friendly, and happy boy. I'm also a big boy who's still learning my manners, so I'm looking for a home willing to put in the work to learn with me (and probably one without small kids - they're easy to topple!). Luckily for you, I am super motivated to work in exchange for food. I don't like being forced though; you'll need to be patient with me and take things at my pace. For example, sometimes being touched unexpectedly can be scary. The shelter staff here think I might do well with the right doggy buddy - we'll need to have a playdate here at the shelter first to see if we are a match. I've never met a cat or small animal in a home setting before, but I have shown some prey drive outside, so if you have any smaller pets at home, you should be prepared to do multiple slow, controlled introductions to keep everyone safe.

I'm really just a big friendly boy who wants to play and have adventures with you! The staff member who is transcribing this for me says that I literally won her heart at first meeting. I bet I can do the same for you! Won't you come get me please?!
