Adoptable Pittie of the Week: Pistachio

20 May

Hello! My name is Pistachio from Liberty Humane Society. It’s so incredibly nice to meet you!



As you can see from my pictures, I am a handsome chap who loves giving out hugs to my favorite human people. I have so much warmth and affection inside of me that I need to share it with the world!

My human friends at the shelter think I am about a year and a half old. That’s a good age, right? I still have the energy and drive of a young dog, but I’m also old enough to be calm, gentle, and well behaved. In fact, I’m so gentle that I would likely make a wonderful dog for a family with even very small children. I would love to have a family of my own. I bet I would get lots of hugs then!



I’m waggy, happy, and comfortable meeting all sorts of human people, young or old, big or small. I approach everyone assuming that they will want to pet me. Who wouldn’t want to pet me? Hee!

I have already learned how to sit on command, and I am hard at work on learning other neat tricks. I pull a bit on my leash, but I’m so smart and eager to please that I’m sure I can learn to break this habit very quickly. I bet you and I would make a great student-teacher team!



I’ve met male and female doggies here at the shelter. I was tolerant of these doggies, but I didn’t seem terribly interested in playing with them. Maybe I just need more time to warm up? If you have your own doggie at home, please bring him or her over to the shelter and we can see how we relate to each other.



Here’s how a special human friend described me:

“Not only does Pistachio have the sweetest face, but he has the sweetest disposition. He is very mild tempered and not big on long walks. He’s perfect for the laid back owner! Pistachio goes out, does his business, and is ready to go back and snuggle with his caretaker. He’s the perfect dog for a low-maintenance (or apartment) owner!”



I am one total lovebug who will make your days brighter and happier. If you hire me to be your new best friend, I will make it my job to keep you happy and smiling! I promise!

Thank you for reading about me! Hope to see you soon! Woof, Pistachio xoxo

    I have met Pistachio, and he is an absolute doll! If my dog weren’t such an “only dog” type of dog, I’d adopt him in a heartbeat. He is gentle, sweet and a real cuddle bug.

    Oh my, what a cute dog. I just love that tuxedo look. I hope this sweet boy finds his forever home very soon. Sounds like he is a great dog. I love the laid-back pups. They are so mellow in the house 🙂

    My girlfriend and I are the current owners of Pistachio, and we are so happy to have him in our lives. He is so good with people, he just loves everyone, and is always full of joy when he sees us. I feel so lucky to have him and can’t imagine being without him.
