Balboa is a 5 year old, 62 lb Pit Bull Terrier. He came from a shelter that was flooded by Hurricane Harvey, and he was super skinny and sick when he arrived. After much needed TLC provided by foster mom, he is doing great and is oh so handsome! Foster mom says Balboa is a WONDERFUL dog! He's energetic, sweet, curious, smart, and just a sweetheart. He gets along great with the other dogs in his foster home, and likes to be outside on nice days for play time and run-around time. He is affectionate, but not a cuddler. He will approach you to be petted, and sometimes lay his head on your lap and look up at you with those beautiful eyes that will make your heart melt. He loves toys, and his favorites are tennis balls and toys he can shake. He has been friendly with everyone he has met. He hasn't been tested with kids, but we think he would be fine with kids over the age of 6. He protested being in a crate at first, but now will go in on his own to take a nap. He is housebroken as long as he is let outside often. Balboa has been through hard times, and he deserves a wonderful life with a warm bed, regular meals and lots of chew bones & affection. Balboa has heartworms because he was not kept on monthly heartworm prevention. Heartworms are not contagious, and Humane Tomorrow will pay for his treatment with our vet.
