Here's what Egg's friends at Pit Bulls of St. Francis think of him:
Egg absolutely adores humans of all shapes and sizes. However, he likes fellow dogs his size or larger, and he can be selective with male dogs. If you have other dogs in your family, Nero will definitely want to meet them before he commits commits to living with you. What Egg is looking for most is a home life where he can be the center of attention and have lots of time with some loving humans.
