A volunteer writes: If there is a dog out there with a bigger ear to ear smile I have yet to meet him! Jung’s smile is one of the things pit bulls are famous for – they have the best smiles ever! His personality matches his smile; Jung is bouncy, playful, and tail waggy. A bit on the chunky side, he’s been fed with love as he’s been beautifully taken care of before being surrendered to our care due to “personal problems”. We’re told that Yung has lived with kids of all ages and is gentle and playful with them, is playful with female dogs and reactive with males, and does not like kitties one bit, so no kitties please. Jung loves to play with toys, likes to play fetch and tug. His behavior assessment indicated some possible toy guarding, but his former owner said he only guards his food so proper care needs to be taken in his new home. Energetic and lively Jung loved playing with a plush toy, greeted dogs in an adjoining pen with a bouncy tail wag, loves a butt scratch and leans in for petting putting his head on my lap. His leash manners are good and he went potty as soon as we were out the door (we’re told he was trained to ‘go’ in the bathtub in the home). Jung is looking for an active, fun family to love. I can’t imagine anything better than coming home to his fabulous ear to ear grin.

Young allowed staff to collar and scan for a microchip with no signs of aggression. Young would bark at other dogs in the lobby and wouls not stop barking until they were out of sight.
Yung pulls hard on the leash. He was excited but very interested in interacting with handler during assessment – jumped up. Yung was excited during some of the handling items, but had soft body language. He did a lot of jumping up and body checking while playing tag. Yung showed some concerning behavior during the food bowl test – stiffening and freezing, but did not snap at or bite the assess-a-hand.
