About the animal:

Reggie whom we call “Bubby” is a three year old pit bull; he loves to play ball, go on walks, and would probably really love to run with someone. He has a lot of energy, but he’s also used to a very quiet, calm home. Bubby has severe separation anxiety, resource guards his loved ones, and food from other animals, because of this, Bubby should be an ONLY animal, preferably in a calm, adult only home. Bubby LOVES to snuggle, and is a big lap dog, he is crate trained but has always slept with his dog mom, or her Granddaughter.

His new pet parents should be experienced with pit bulls, and have the time, and energy to devote to training him, and working with his anxiety. Loud noises, such as garbage trucks or yelling send him shaking, and barking aggressively. He loves meditation music, blueberries, strawberries, and his current diet is grain free; Whole Hearted chicken kibble from Petco; with some sardines every few days as a special treat. He enjoys Kongs stuffed with Charlee Bears bacon and blueberry flavored, as well as frozen strawberries and blueberries with a little bit of peanut butter. It took us a year to figure out a good diet for him, one that didn’t cause allergic skin or ear problems. He’s been under the care of the same veterinarian since we adopted him at 8 weeks old.

We must rehome him due to his resource guarding and aggression toward our older dog. This is a very difficult decision, we have worked with behaviorists, and due to me being chronically ill, I can no longer handle the stress of keeping both dogs. Bubby is young and I believe with a healthy, well versed pit bull parent he will thrive. I must stress, no other animals should be in the home. He’s pretty good with kids, but he jumps, and once again, I want to stress, he’s lived in a very quiet, calm home.

I contacted the place we adopted him from, and they can’t take him back; but will help with screening when we find a home for him.
