Nero needs a foster home!

Meet Nero, our 6 year-old muscle-bound, cuddle bear. While Nero might seem like the tough guy, meathead type on the first impression, he is actually sweet and sensitive. He loves to be cuddled. He enjoys toys briefly but will quickly give them up for a few pats on the head. He hopes that anyone passing his direction will just stop and give him some love. He actually expects it. He has lived with older children in his prior home. He does seem to get along with other dogs but can become a little possessive of food with his canine companions. It does also appear that Nero could share his home with a cat. This sweet, stocky pocket pitty is sure to steal your heart.
Nero has heartworm disease and will be starting treatment soon. He is looking for a foster or a foster-to-adopt home for the next few months while he undergoes treatment.
If you are interested in meeting Nero, please submit the foster application found under the volunteer tab on our website,, and our foster coordinator will get back to you.
