Dollop, pit bull terrier
Dollop is a male pit bull terrier in the care of California Pit Bull Rescue.
Dollop loves other dogs, but he is looking for a cat-free household. He is already house-trained, neutered and vaccinated.
From Dollop's current caretaker:
Dollop will give you dollops of kisses! This stunner is approximately 60 pounds, 1.5 years old, crate-trained, potty-trained and rides well in the car. Dollop is very good with other dogs, big and small, and loves a good play session! He may take a few minutes to warm up to new people, and then when he is comfortable, he reveals his very affectionate personality. Dollop likes to play fetch and go on walks, and for a young pup, his level of energy is quite moderate!

From Little Booboo's current caretaker:
