Rider is a 6 year-old, American Pit bull, neutered male. He came to us from Multnomah County Dog Services after being surrendered to them. This handsome guy was surrendered due to him being Hypothyroid and obese. When he arrived at MCAS he was 96lbs, they did great and got him down to 83 lbs, but … he still has another 10 to go. He is very sweet. He loves tennis balls, and loves to romp around our yard. He likes calm dogs, but he doesn’t like dogs who jump on him or get in his face. We’re unsure how he is around cats in a home setting, but he didn’t care about our cats out on the Catio. He still has some dry skin issues, which can be from the untreated Hypothyroidism. He gets thyroid medication twice a day, as he loses weight and he will need to be re-evaluated by a Veterinarian to see if his dosing needs to be changed. This big lug, loves to sit on your lap, loves chewing on tennis balls. He likes anyone who will play with him although he doesn’t like to share his tennis ball. The adoption fee is $150.00.Dog Adoptions are by appointment only. Please answer the questions below, to see if you are a good fit for Rider. We are short staffed and will not answer back e-mails that don’t answer the questions. 1.Do you own or rent? If you rent, can you get a letter form landlord stating that you can have a large dog? 2. How many people live in the home? Age groups? 3. Do you have a fenced yard? 4. Can you afford his on going medical care? Thyroid medication can range from $6.00-$30.00, depending on your area, as he may need more blood work as well.
