Blake, pit bull terrier

Blake is a sweet male pit bull terrier dog staying at One Love Pit Bull Foundation.

Blake likes to socialize, and he gets along well with cats, dogs and kids. Blake is neutered, and he has had all his shots. He's already house-trained.

Here's what Blake's friends at One Love Pit Bull Foundation think of him:

Blake enjoys small walks to the park but would recommending no hiking due to an old ACL injury. Blake loves chewing on bones. His favorite thing is cuddling. He will roll over on his back and lay there for hours to get belly rubs. He snores with his eyes open which may be the cutest thing you will ever see.
