Meet Big’Nm a 2-year-old, 51-pound, black-and-white pit bull mix with a big personality. He loves wrestling with people and getting a little rowdy, so he’d love to have an active family who can keep up with him. He’d also love a family that doesn’t mind him loving all over them and who will love on him, too. He is pretty smart — he knows how to sit on command — and he’d like a family that is willing to teach him how to be a good boy. He is super food motivated, but will be your friend forever whether you have food or not. He would be best as an only dog. He is heartworm positive, but his treatments will be free at any Metroplex VCA Animal Hospital once he’s adopted, thanks to generous donors. Big’N has been neutered and microchipped and is up to date on his age-appropriate vaccinations. Come by the shelter to meet him today. #151466
