Scooby is an amazing pup, and is the perfect example of what can go wrong when placed in the wrong hands. Former bite dog and county assessed 'S5 animal-aggressive' should not define this exceptional pup who has shown absolutely zero aggression under proper handling. There are millions of pits needing a home and with his history his options become even further limited. Scooby is a sanctuary dog and in need of sponsorship.

About

Scooby has been with Domenic for a year and a half, and has never shown any signs of aggression towards humans or animals. Scooby was, however, labeled (on 4/22/16 by county S5 'temperament-animal.' Due to this death row pup's former "bite" history and county assessment, Scooby, was not available for adoption by the general public and was labeled rescue only.

It was obvious no one was interested in saving this handsome pit from death, and Domenic was his only option.

Scooby has consistently been an excellent, well-behaved and sweet pup under Domenic's care and handling. He is also well-socialized with many different dogs and has remained gentle. Steps were taken slow and gradually; and, for the past year, he has been enjoying playtime with 5 other dogs both male and female. He has a great time with all the other pups never displaying any signs of aggression. This further verifies that good leadership and control play a crucial part in a dog's response / reaction. Finding a suitable home with the same type of experience and leadership has not been easy.

Scooby is an amazing pup, but he could be in jeopardy of showing aggressive tendencies if placed in the wrong home. Rescuing dogs -- who are truly good dogs under correct, experienced and proper handling -- that have a past like Scooby's takes a much greater level of responsibility and care. A former bite dog absolutely cannot be released to the average home/person. It is our duty and obligation as a responsible rescue -- devoted to working with dogs that either have a history or are considered challenged -- to place the dog's care and safety as top priority in all cases.

Scooby -- although sweet and well-behaved in rescue -- most likely will become a forever sanctuary dog. There are millions of pits needing a home and with his history his options become even further limited.

Scooby's Notes From County
Immediately, and without any hesitation, charged another dog from afar- vocalizing/screaming, growling, and trying to bite. Dog was taken back to his kennel where he fence fought all the way back and nearly re-directed on the assessor as they placed him back in the kennel. This dog is a prior bite dog and was just here in January. Due to his bite history and his evaluation, this animal is NOT available for general adoption, rescue only.

Details / Updates

Scooby is a gorgeous, well-behaved, approx 3 year old, neutered tan/black pit. He is current on vaccinations.
