Meet Cayden, Pitbull mix available for adoption-Missouri

If you like to walk, jog or bike, Cayden is the companion dog for you. Cayden is a pit bull mix, walks great on leash, he does not pull, and currently gets about 1½ hours of exercise a day, walking & biking. He weighs about 50 pounds. He is estimated to be under 2 years old.
Cayden came to the pound after spending some time visiting with people eating at the local Sonic.

He was at the pound for a few months but is now being fostered. He has learned manners and some dog obedience. The best we can determine of Cayden’s past was that he was probably an outdoor dog where his owners did not spend a lot of time with him. He lacked manners when he first came, but has greatly improved with his foster moms guidance.

We would like to see Cayden go to a home where his new family will carry on with his dog obedience. We are looking for a family that is familiar with the breed and a previous dog owner that will be a leader that can help Cayden reach his full potential.

Cayden is a good boy, he is loving and playful. He is a quick learner and will do what you ask of him. He has already learned to give paw, high five, wave bye-bye, spin, back up and roll over. He is also learning some agility obstacles: teeter-totter, dog walk and weave poles. He will sit, down, stay, come & will wait to be released for his food (pictured) or before going through a door, getting out of his crate or going up or down stairs. He also knows the commands “leave it” and “quiet”. He is housebroken & crate trained. He is doing very well with learning to get his nails trimmed and his teeth brushed. He will let you brush him too.

Cayden loves everyone but because he is at times rambunctious, we would say no to a family with very young children. Cayden likes other dogs and would do fine with a laid back dog in the home. He gets over excited if another dog is hyper and he himself will tend to get just as excited forgetting his manners.
He is neutered and up to date on shots. He has Frontline applied to him monthly. His adoption fee is $75.00 through the Buffalo City Pound. Contact Cheryl at stingess@hotmail.com Please put “Cayden” in the subject line.

Good luck, Cayden! I love seeing foster dogs getting to learn all kinds of good stuff with awesome, invested, motivated foster homes. Thanks for putting the time and effort into him- his future family will be thrilled and recognize his potential and hopefully continue doing training or even competition with him!

I edited this to fix the photo links. :))

Thank You for fixing that. I thought I might have done that wrong. :sad:

His foster mom is the greatest!! She has done so much for him. We have a hard time adopting out our pitties b/c our adoption site is Springfield, Mo and when they passed the dog law ordinance concerning Pitbulls they also stuck in there that shelters cannot bring the breed or mixes inside the city limits to adopt out. You can own them in Springfield as long as you go by the ordinance. Cayden lacks exposure to get him a home so I thought why not try here...a forum with pittie lovers!!!

He is a cutie! Cayden has been with us now for about a year. Black dogs are the hardest to adopt out and being a pit mix even harder. We are running out of resources to get him exposure. He attends an adoption site about once a month and will also attend different events as long as they are not in Springfield.

Anyone have any ideas how we can get this guy more exposure? We are located in Buffalo, MO, a small rural town.
