i was looking for a pitbull to adopt and i found a coworker posted on our company's website that her dog just had puppies. i wasnt looking for any look or kind in particular so i asked her to keep one for me. Melo had actually been already "picked" from the litter, but the person who wanted him had some trouble with his "parole office"... or some kind of issue going on so he was not able to get him that day. i live in MD and actually drove 6+ hours to get this guy from CT, and it was completely worth it. Our family has 2 chihuahuas that get along with melo, (1 more than the other) both female and melo is the only male. we used to go mountain biking a lot but recently i took him out with his flirt toy(prey toy whatever is called) that i made and somehow he broke his dew claw and was bleedin pretty bad. but it seems that he doesnt even feel it.
i work at a bank 9-5 melo stays with my parents mostly, he is rarely ever in a cage, he just roams around the house usually following my parents. when i first got him... as soon as i got him in the car.
