AJ is available for adoption at the West Los Angeles Animal ShelterYou Can Call Me “AJ”!

ID# A1472087

What a face!  This is AJ.  He is a 5 year old, neutered male English Bulldog/American Pit Bull Terrier mix.  He was found as a stray and brought to the West Los Angeles Animal Shelter on April 19, 2014.  He weighs 52 pounds.

AJ is a sweet, friendly, gentle dog whose only problem is that he does not want to walk out of his run and into the yard and then back again.  He sits and refuses to more.  Coaxing helps a little bit and some have actually carried him.  With time and reassurance, this issue will undoubtedly become better.  The shelter can be a very scary place for a dog.  In the play yard he is fine.  He walks well on-leash and has a good time.

AJ loves people and likes to hang out.  He is very sweet and affections.  He knows Sit.  He enjoys getting treats and has a soft mouth.  See AJ in action!

AJ is a very special dog.  Not only is he a very beautiful dog, but he has a personality to match.  He needs a kind and patient person in his life.  We will never know what sadness and trauma he has been exposed to, but we know his future will be a happy one.  AJ is eagerly waiting for his forever home. 

When contacting the shelter for more information about AJ, be sure to use his ID# A1472087 as a reference.  Photo/video credit:  Debbie Fan, Twitter @blackjackbarks
