Adopt Barco a Brown/Chocolate American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed dog in Newport
Newport News, VA
CALLING ALL RUNNERS!! My name is Barco and I'm looking for a running buddy! My volunteer friends have been taking me for runs and I have to say, the fitness lifestyle is most certainly for me. I love the feeling of the wind whipping through my soft floppy ears and the asphalt moving beneath my paws. As if I'm not adorable enough, my ears flop the entire run which keeps my pals laughing for sure.I came to PRAS as a stray so my shelter buddies don't know much about me before I met them. But after spending some time getting to know me, here's what they CAN share...I'm a whole bunch of fun. Yep, you heard it right! I want to be where the ACTION is! And if you brought treats to the scene, you can count me in for sure. I'm not picky, anything from Milkbones to Pupperoni will do just fine.I LOVE to be active. I'm happy to curl up in my kennel for a snooze while I wait for the fun to come my way but I would definitely appreciate someone who would bring me along on their adventures and keep me busy! I'm a runner! Like I mentioned before, my volunteer friends here at the shelter have been running with me. My friend has a belt that she clips my chain leash into and off we go for a few miles around our signature loop in the shelter parking lot. Its so easy and super fun for us both. This time we can share together helps us both out because it allows me to burn off some energy and it helps her get some steps in too! You know, New Years resolutions are coming up. And if you're looking for someone to help hold you accountable, I'd be more than happy to make a deal!I would do best in a home with people who love to move and groove and stay busy. My volunteer pals think I would do best with older kids as I need to work on some leash manners. I'm pleased to mention however, that I handle MUCH smoother on a chain leash. While I'm learning to be a gentleman, please be patient with me. I promise to return the favor.I know I'm a good boy, but I'll be waiting here at PRAS until you can figure it out too! Ask for me, Barco. I'm the cute one with the floppy ears.
