Spartacus From Tucson Cold Wet Noses Rescue

Hi, I’m Spartacus!

Like the Spartans, I beat impossible odds at the shelter and was rescued. I was brought in wearing a collar and knowing commands but my owner never came looking for me. Being a pitbull can be a hard stigma to overcome especially in the shelter environment. Families would walk by looking for a new forever friend and sometimes a boy or girl would stop by and greet me but everytime the parent’s would shake their head and they would leave with a smaller, fluffier, or more puppy-like dog. I was so happy for my friends but as much as I tried I couldn’t get smaller or fluffier but I wish they knew at 2 years old, I’m still very puppy-like! If someone would just take me out to play for just a couple minutes they would see I was a talented athlete, playmate and comedian all rolled into one handsome package. Although the shelter staff and volunteers loved me and gave me lots of extensions, I grew very depressed waiting for someone to come until my foster Mom came to give me a second chance at a forever home.

In my foster home, I’ve been a very good boy. I’ve gotten along with dogs in my foster home but I can be a bit rowdy at moments and would do best with other playful medium to large dogs. I learn quickly and know basic commands, I’ve begun crate training and I’m learning to love my crate. Sometimes I sleep in there when the door is open just because I think it is cozy. I am VERY food motivated. I’m housetrained and know how to use a dog door.

I’m fully vaccinated, microchipped, and neutered. I’m available to meet and greet in both Phoenix and Tucson by appointment.
