Oatmeal~1 y.o., 65 pound, hunky pit mix~ needs forever home!

Marstons Mills, MA; 1 year old

Hi! My name is Oatmeal. Why the name you ask? Because I am a big mush of a guy! I was brought in to the NYC ACC as a stray. While there, they tested my behavior and guess what? I ACED my evaluation! I got one of the top ratings a nice dog can get! That is why I was so shocked and dismayed to learn that I got placed on the dreaded “To Be Destroyed” list when I caught a cold! Lucky for me, a nice lady in Massachusetts decided that I was worth taking in for a while, until I could find a home with my forever person!

I’m just a young guy at only about a year old, and about 65 pounds. I am smart and am learning basic commands such as sit, stay and down.

My foster mom says I need to get better at my leash manners (I just get so excited to go on walks to see the world!) and being polite when I greet people (I love to jump up to give kisses, I guess that is not the way it’s supposed to be done!), but we are working on it every day. I walk nicely with my human friends when I am off leash and they say I am easily redirected. I also know to go potty outside 🙂

I’m always up for a car ride! Exploring the town is so much fun! I have a great time with my toys too- squeaky toys, frisbees, balls, kongs, you name it, I won’t turn any toy down! I have a blast to chasing balls and frisbees and playing keep away from my foster family.

I do like to hang out with my human friends, I’d rather be with them than anything else. I will snuggle in bed or on the sofa, but I will also stay on the floor if I must. I will never turn down a cookie if offered, and I will take it carefully from your hand. I don’t get upset if you take my food away while I am eating, either, even if it is a yummy home cooked meal! (I do LOVE the food!)

I must admit, I am a bit of a ladies’ man, but I would do ok in a home with most other dogs, male or female. I will do great in an active home that can get me plenty of exercise and mental stimulation as I have lots of energy! I would make a great hiking or running partner!

Please consider meeting me! I’m a REALLY nice boy and would so love to be with my forever family soon! Ask about me today at amsterdog@gmail.com!
