Adoptable Pittie of the Week: Solo

16 Apr

This week’s adoptable pittie was pulled from Manhattan’s Animal Care & Control facility by the Picasso Veterinary Fund of the Mayor’s Alliance for New York City’s Animals – the same organization that currently still has our wonderful Pinky available for adoption, too!

Solo is a sweet 4 year old mixed breed that we took for placement from Manhattan Animal Care and Control. He was an owner surrender to the shelter so we know a little bit about his history. He’s an amazingly sweet boy. Came from a home with 3 young children. He was surrendered because they were moving to a no pet building. He is great on a leash, good with other dogs large and small, and has no problems with strangers. He is neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. He is negative for Heartworm and is ready for his new home. Solo enjoys his time outside but is also a great apartment dog despite his size (85lbs). He could lose a little weight but he’s a big boy. He is such a love muffin.”

If you are interested in adopting Solo please contact the shelter at or (212) 564-4604 ext 3.

    Handsome boy- great, intelligent look. I hope he finds a home soon. Looks like a great addition to any family.

    He’s adorable and bless the organization who stepped up for him but why must they list him as a mixed breed? Even on their petfinder page he is listed as an Am. Staff. mix. Uh, no – no he is not. Am Staffs don’t (according to their own breed standard) come in red nose. This guy is pure 110% APBT. I dislike it when rescues skirt the truth with things like Am Staff (unless it has Am Staff papers it is an APBT) or X breed plus “mix”. It is a disservice to both the dog and the new family. What happens when a family takes him only to find out that APBT’s are not allowed in their building or that their homeowners insurance won’t cover him. Why is it we want to celebrate the breed EXCEPT when we are trying to adopt them out.
