Pit Bull Terrier

11 months
Medium  |  Male

Franklin, IN



Meet Deacon! Deacon was found in the middle of the road by one of our volunteers. He was skin and bones and sores and had just about given up. Thankfully she scooped him right up and took him to Dr. Cindy who started him on the road to recovery!
Deacon has gained over 15lbs and has recovered a lot of his strength at this point. He is quite young but is now ready for adoption. Deacon has never met a stranger, and absolutely loves other dogs.
Being a typical pitbull puppy he has never learned the words stop and no and will need someone with the patience to help him learn some control. Deacon will not do well in a home with small children, cats, or small dogs who can't stand up to his antics. He has never learned not to puppy bite, and thinks the other dogs are playing when they correct him. Deacon will come with a training addendum to make sure he gets the education he needs to succeed.
While he needs some basic training and leash skills, Deacon is an absolute love of a dog who just needs some food and affection! Let us know if you'd like to take this sweet boy home!
