My name is Walter. I am an approximately 5 year-old male pit bull mix.  I really like to play with other dogs and be around people.  I am very energetic and would be best with an active family.  I do need a home with no small children or cats.  I love to chew on toys and be silly, but I also enjoy calm affection and companionship, as well.  I have been at Speranza since late 2016 and am on the search for a family of my own.


I am originally a Southern boy.  Sadly I was found as a stray, guarding my friend who had been hit by a car and couldn’t move.  I didn’t want to leave her, but sadly she didn’t make it.  I spend a few weeks in a shelter in Georgia before I hit the jackpot and made the journey to Speranza where I have found many new friends.

I know basic commands, but would benefit from training classes. I am learning how to walk on a leash and take treats more gently. I am very food motivated and very much want to please you, so I should be very trainable.
