Hi, I'm Alfonzo!

I'm an adult male red/golden/orange/chestnut with white Pit Bull Terrier / Mix.

ALFONSO: Adult pit bull, silly and wiggly, needs a dog experienced adopter, approved for respectful children over the age of 16.

I'm a handsome boy who came to the shelter with a gash in my lip and signs of a head injury. I was a stray so no one knows how I was injured, but it's safe to say I had a very scary experience. My shelter caregivers say I'm a good boy who is silly and wiggly, loves cuddles and treats, and gives great kisses. However, I need a dog savvy adopter because I do show signs of resource guarding. My owner should take things slow and give me time to settle in, feel safe, and learn that I don't have to guard my food, treats, or toys. I'm approved for respectful children over the age of 16 and everyone in my household must stick to the rules of going slow with me, and never try to force me to stop guarding my "possessions" (this is something I must learn, not something anyone should try to force me to do). My wonderful HSJC caregivers will be happy to provide my adopter with good information on training and a referral to an experienced animal behaviorist. If you're a dog knowledgeable person who can commit to helping me, I could be the greatest pup you've ever had!

The online adoption listing websites require that we choose a predominant breed or breed mix for our dogs. Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We encourage you to select your new companion by considering each dog's individual personality and pet qualities instead of relying on a breed label that is only a guess.

My adoption fee is $200.00.
I have been , vaccinated, microchipped, and I've received routine treatment for internal and external parasites. I have tested negative for heartworm.
