We’ve told Ember that not ALL people like to be greeted with a 10-minute kissing session, but he just won’t believe us. This little guy’s light shines so bright that he gives everyone in the shelter the warm fuzzies. He enjoys carrying around toys, sticks anything that is double his size which is almost everything because for a pit-mix he is quite small, a pocket pit! You see, Ember has spent his life trying to prove that he can run with the big dogs. But what he desperately wants is a break from taking the lead. He would much prefer to devote his energy to showering you with affection instead of using it to figure out how to navigate this big world all alone. Because Ember had to make it on his own early in life, he is still very much a puppy at heart. He would love a companion or family with some energy that is willing to teach him. He likes exploring but needs a patient person he can trust to go with him because this big world can be scary at times, that’s when you need to show him he’s safe because you’ve got him. Ember needs a confident, calm leader that is willing to work with him on leash and greeting manners (less kissing/more sitting). He would probably do best as an only dog in a home without small children or cats for now. If you happen to have a fenced yard, he would be over the moon.

Are you looking for a best friend, playmate, walking/hiking partner that gives great hugs and kisses? Ember would be forever grateful to have you lead the way out of shelter life and into yours.
