Meet Myles! The reason I also like to call him “Mr. Wiggles” is because his cute little pit bull butt and tail NEVER stop wagging: LITERALLY! So watch out if you have gorgeous little items on your coffee table, because prepare for this sweet dog not only to sweep you off your feet, but he may also sweep off your table…Oops.
Myles is about a year old and was a stray turned into the Martinez Animal Shelter. He was saved just in the knick of time by a volunteer, who then brought him to me, his foster mom. I was already committed to fostering for CHAKO, yet had not been paired with a dog at that point, so I figured I’d keep Myles for a bit and see if I thought he would pass CHAKO’s behavioral requirements. Well, after a couple of days, I knew this dog was a pit bull super star! There is NOTHING not to like about this boy as long as you love gushy, over the top in love, cuddly, always happy, and everything-there-is to love about the breed pit bulls.
Myles is great with other dogs and appears that he may have the potential to live with a cat (although he currently does not). He loves his two doggy house mates, a male 4.5 year old Lab x Pit mix and an 8 year old female Pit Bull. I also have friends’ dogs here constantly, and he has played well and appropriately with all of them. He would do wonderfully in a home with other dogs, but since he truly loves his people so much, he would do just fine as an only dog as well as long as his new owners spent enough time with him (as with any dog).
Myles loves everyone he meets and is ALWAYS happy to give anyone a free facial if they’ll let him. He also adores children.
When I received this dog he clearly had NO training. He is so smart and willing to please, so things are going great and progressing very quickly! He is completely housebroken, crate trained, walks perfectly on a leash in just a martingale collar, and knows “sit”. He is learning his other commands (right now we are learning "down", "stay", "wait", and "leave it") and we spend about 20 minutes a day working on it.
I’ve only had this dog for about 1.5 weeks, but am head over heels in love, as I’m sure you will be if you are interested in meeting this loveable petite guy. Keep checking back on the blog to follow the adventures of Myles!
