This week’s Pet of the Week is Fats, a pit bull terrier mix from Kitsap Humane Society. Fats has been at the shelter for over a year and would really, really like to find his forever home soon.
Despite his size (about 60 pounds) Fats thinks he’s a lap dog. He loves to crawl into your lap whenever the opportunity arises, and he’s not above showering you with kisses, too.
Fats is a happy boy who seems to like every human he meets. He will greet you with a big smile and an adorable tail wag, and he enjoys going on walks and lounging in the yard. Although he can be playful, Fats is generally pretty low-key, and has a nice energy level.
He is house-trained, crate-trained, and is good on the leash. He’s basically a dog superstar. He already knows “sit” and “stay” and is so smart and eager to learn more. He loves chew toys and squeaky toys and, did we mention, he is a big fan of the couch?
Fats can be a little nervous around other dogs and may be happiest as an only dog. He’s really not a fan of cats so needs a home with absolutely no access to kitties. Fats is looking for an awesome home that will appreciate his good looks and sparkling personality. Fat’s ideal family has a house (no apartments) with a secure fenced yard and no kids under 10.
This sweet pup has some degenerative changes to his knees, which were causing him to limp and favor one of his legs. The vet team performed surgery to repair the knee, and he has been undergoing physical therapy to get him feeling better and back on his feet. His recovery is going great, and Fats is ready to go home. His adopter will need to continue to manage his medical condition, and he may require further medical care down the road.
Fats is available for adoption through the Kitsap Humane Society. If you are interested in learning more about this very good boy, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request an adoption application. You can also visit him at the shelter any day during adoption hours.
Kitsap Humane Society is a private, nonprofit animal shelter that rescues and rehomes more than 6,000 pets every year. The Silverdale-based organization has a “lives saved” rate of over 95 percent, and never euthanizes an animal due to lack of space. In addition to caring for and adopting animals, Kitsap Human Society also provides spay/neuter services to low income residents of Kitsap County and Animal Rescue and Enforcement services to surrounding municipalities.
