Blake's rescue in New Jersey has the following to say about him:
"Blake is a three year old American Bulldog/Pit Bull Terrier mix, who looks more like a cow than a dog. He was found as a stray in Manhattan and brought to the shelter, and we were contacted when this poor boy was showing signs of depression after being in his cage for about a month.
Blake is an AWESOME dog! He is fun, playful, and obedient. He can sit and give you his paw, and he adores toys. Be prepared to buy strong toys, though, because he loves to rip them apart in about 5 seconds flat. Blake is a big mush - he loves to crawl into his foster mom's lap and sleep under the covers on her bed. He happily gives kisses to everyone that comes into the house! Although he is gentle he is very strong and therefore we would not recommend a home with small children. Blake loves the other dogs in his foster home and plays wonderfully with them. His foster mom gave him a much needed bath and he was very stoic - he didn't seem to like it too much but he constantly reassured her that he was OK by licking her face throughout the whole ordeal.
Blake weighs about 55 pounds, but he is VERY thin and you can actually see his hip bones and back bone in his pictures. He should probably weigh about 70 pounds, and his foster family is feeding him three times a day to fatten him up. He has a gorgeous white coat with black spots and the most beautiful eyes we have ever seen. Blake his housetrained, crate trained, up to date on all his shots, neutered, and microchipped. All he needs now is a family to call his own!"
It sounds like all this guy needs is a snuggly bed and some extra kibble. If you're interested in learning more visit the Shelter Survivors Website or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
