Every week KBER will highlight The Mick & Allen Pet of The Week from C.A.W.S. – Community Animal Welfare Society.
Listen to The Freak Show with Mick & Allen every Thursday at 5:30 to hear about the pet of the week
Hi! My Name is Pancake and I am an affectionate young girl who wants to be your best friend. I am an American Pit Bull Terrier who is roughly 3-4 years old. I weigh about 60 pounds and I am full of spunk and kisses! My foster mom is a veterinarian and thinks I am pretty darn healthy (and perfect). She says I fall in love with humans fast, and will devote my life to you, if you are willing to welcome me into your family. I am fiercely loyal and although am high energy, I listen well to commands and am eager to please. I actually like my crate (so long as there are comfy beds involved). I don’t always love going into it, but with some coaxing and treats, I will eventually listen! My foster mom has me in a crate all day long at her veterinary clinic and I sleep most of the day. I am let out a couple times to go potty, but I am pretty good at holding it, and seem to be potty-trained. My foster mom does not have a fenced yard, so she takes me for walks on a leash and I love it. I do wear a snazzy, durable harness, which does help. She tried a gentle-leader on my muzzle, but I was not used to this and need some more time to figure that weird thing out. It takes me a minute to figure out where I want to go potty, which is fine, as long as my owner is patient. But I bet having a fenced in yard would be even better!
My favorite activity thus far seems to be trying to play with my foster brothers, who are not as keen as I am to wrestle. I also love sleeping and I am probably considered a master of cuddling. My one flaw probably is that I snore a little bit, but it’s not too bad!
I seem to be very good with other dogs, so long as they also love romping around. I can be a bit bold, and shy dogs might not love my electric energy. I also love cats, but maybe too much. My foster mom has a cat who is not too keen on me, and when she hisses, I think it is time to play. I would say I am not so good at reading social cues. Which brings me to my biggest flaw: I need some work with my manners. But hey, who doesn’t!?
My energy level and size are probably not ideal for small children. I can get super excited at times, and the little ones could get knocked over, so I think a household with older or no children would be the best for my temperament.
If I had to request a few things in my perfect home (although I don’t want to be too picky), it would be someone who loves me as much as I love them, a home that allows me to run off some steam each day, and a home that understands I am still young and have a few things to learn.
Overall, if I had to describe myself in 3 words, it would be happy, energetic, and lovable!
