Pistachio

Meet our good boy, Pistachio!

Hi! My name is Pistachio and I’m a 5-year-old, neutered male American Pitbull Terrier mix weighing at 40 lbs. I was rescued from the streets of Ensenada, and I’ve had a rough past. I am looking for a family who understands my quirks and help me build my confidence. Despite everything I’ve been through, I want to be such a good boy and try so hard to please my foster family. I am completely potty trained and I’m working on leash training.

I LOVE the women in my life and will follow them around all over the house (to make sure they’re okay!). I’m not sure about men and is very leery of kids and teens. This may have to do with my rough past. I’d do best in an adults-only home with a loving mom and/or a dad who is willing to earn my trust (please be patient). My ideal home would have access to a yard – I am much happier being outside than trapped in a house all day. I love to snuggle, so if you need someone next to you while you watch Disney+ then I’m your man! Another activity I can’t get enough of is playing ball. While I am curious about cats, my fosters cannot say for sure if I would like one for a roommate. I must say that I am not fond of small dogs, but I do get along with other medium-sized friendly dogs. I really just want a nice warm home with toys, food, and a place with people who can teach me the world is a good place (I haven’t had much luck there).

The Animal Pad says that I am truly what rescue is all about. That I am the epitome of what an abused dog can overcome and how much love and hope they can still have. If you love me and shower me with your attention, then in return I will give you love and appreciation that is so genuine and pure it will melt your heart. I seriously can’t wait to meet you! I hope you give me a chance and I will show you all my love with snuggles and kisses! An adults-only home with access to a yard would be ideal for me. My adoption fee is $250 and that includes spaying/neutering, shots, and microchip. If you want to take me home, please fill out the form on the website here: https://theanimalpad.org/adopt-today
