Dumpling came to the Dawg Squad from a shelter in Colorado, where several cities have banned the Pit Bull Breed. Dumpling is about 2 years old and is a true American Pitbull Terrier.
Dumpling knows all his commands and is great on a leash. He loves to run but is also happy just hanging out with with his people. Dumpling loves to eat! No one can say no to his cute little face. The staff where he is boarded was so taken with him that they were spending their lunch and dinner breaks with him...and sharing! Dumpling is now on a diet.
He really is quite amazing—come meet him and be overwhelmed by his awesomeness! To learn more about Dumpling, visit the Dawg Squad site, email email@example.com or call 310-674-0477.
