Jr. K is looking for a family that can play with him for the rest of his dog days

This big guy has been at the Regional Center for Animal Care and Protection for over 200 days

Jr. K is a 5-year-old pitbull mix who loves people

ROANOKE, Va. – Maybe your kid needs a playmate, or maybe you need someone to keep up with you on your runs – either way, Jr. K might just be a perfect fit in your fun family.

This energetic 5-year-old Pitbull mix is neutered and looking for a new home after being in the shelter for over 200 days.

As of August 4, Jr. K has been playing around at his foster home while he’s treated for heartworms, but once he finishes treatment, he’ll be ready to head off to his forever home.

Jr. K is a very active dog, so shelter staff said he’ll need someone who is equally as patient as they are energetic while Jr. K learns more basic obedience skills.

Shelter staff said that Jr. K is a big extrovert in the dog world – he loves people and other dogs, but he can be a bit rambunctious, so if you have another dog, a meet and greet is required before adoption just to make sure he’s a good fit in your household.

Jr. K’s ideal home would be one with a family that can keep him busy and that gives him the opportunity to exercise.
