Dozer-Crooked toothed, banana loving snuggle bug!

Pit Bull Terrier

Large  |  Male

Chicago, IL


Guys, how is this dog not adopted?! Sometimes we have long-termers and we get it but with this lug consider our minds blown. I mean sure he's a big guy and perhaps most suitable for single family living and sure feline friends aren't really part of his repertoire, but otherwise talk about a dreamboat!
Since heading to summer camp, err we mean foster, Dozer has been sending us notes letting us know what exceptional fun he is having and also what an excellently behaved boy he has blossomed into.
This dudes favorite things include sharing bananas and other dog appropriate snacks with his humans, cuddling like crazy, snoozing on his comforter, smooching his foster parent's cousin's kids as much as they're amenable to, going on leisurely strolls, and boating adventures.
Dozie is great with some dogs and just too much for others so whether or not he can share his forever home with another dog will just depend on their dynamic. For sure though he can have canine pals.
This kiddo is about 3.5 years old, around 80 lbs, neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested, microchipped, and maintained on heartguard/flea and tick prevention. His adoption fee is $250 (but word on the street is that some smitten sponsor is willing to cover half of it) and if interested you can access our survey here:

I have been in the market for a dog for the past 2 years and stumbled across Mr. Filbert several months ago on a separate pet search engine. Once Petcha launched, he was one of the first dogs that populated my screen. I quickly applied for him and was immediately contacted by Adrienne. The process could not have gone smoother from that point on. Adrienne immediately sent me an email and copied in Filbert's then-foster mom and we arranged a time for them both to come to my apartment. As soon as I met the curly canine, I fell in love. We played fetch for a few hours and his wonderful foster mom, Erica, took Filbert back to her place. I picked him up at Erica's home a few days later with the "foster to adopt" program and knew there was no way I couldn't keep the little guy. Benji (formerly known as Filbert) is my best friend and has grown tremendously the past few weeks. He was very timid towards new people, especially men, but with exposure and professional training, my little Benji has become quite the (well-behaved) stud on the block. I cannot thank Adrienne, Erica, and the OTAT people enough for bringing this little bundle of joy into my life! You guys took great care of Filbert/Benji and he is the perfect pet.
