Meet Carmel

CARMEL IS A NEUTERED MALE PIT BULL MIX WEIGHING 35 LBS. AND CAME INTO THE SHELTER AS A STRAY. HE IS A YOUNG ADULT THAT WE ARE ESTIMATING TO BE AROUND 4 OR 5 YEARS OLD.

CARMEL IS ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE DOGS WITH A VERY SHORT COAT THAT WILL NOT REQUIRE A LOT OF MAINTENANCE AND A MINIMUM AMOUNT OF SHEDDING IN YOUR HOME. I WAS PLEASANTLY SURPRISED THAT HE DID VERY WELL ON OUR WALKS WITH JUST SLIP LEASH. NOT MUCH PULLING OR TUGGING BUT I WOULD RECOMMEND USING A HARNESS OR GENTLE LEADER JUST THE SAME. CARMEL WAS QUICK TO TAKE CARE OF HIS BUSINESS WHEN I GOT HIM OUTSIDE AND THEN SEVERAL TIMES ON OUR WALK. I WOULD THINK HE HAS HAD HOUSETRAINING BUT WOULD NEED A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME TO ADJUST TO A NEW HOME.

I HAVE HAD CARMEL IN OUR EXERCISE YARD AND WOULD DESCRIBE HIS ENERGY LEVEL AS MEDIUM. PLEASE WATCH HIS VIDEO ON PETFINDER TO SEE WHAT HE IS LIKE OFF LEASH. ONCE HE HAD GOTTEN HIS ZOOMIES OVER WITH, HE IS QUICK TO CALM AND ENJOY YOUR ATTENTION AND IS A FRIENDLY AND AFFECTIONATE DOG. I ALSO LEARNED THAT CARMEL LIKES TO CHASE THE TENNIS BALL AND WILL RETURN IT TO YOU FOR A SMALL TREAT. ? HE WILL SIT NICELY ON COMMAND AND TAKES TREATS GENTLY.

IF YOU ALREADY HAVE A DOG(S) IN YOUR HOME, THERE WOULD BE A MEET & GREET HERE AT THE SHELTER TO MAKE CERTAIN THERE WERE NO ISSUES.

THIS GORGEOUS BOY IS JUST ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF A GREAT DOG ABANDONED BY HIS OWNER FOR GOD KNOWS WHAT REASON. PLEASE CONSIDER FILLING OUT AN APPLICATION FOR HIM AND FINDING OUT FOR YOURSELF IF HE MIGHT BE THE DOG YOU WOULD WANT TO TAKE INTO YOUR HOME AND PROVIDE HIM THE LOVE AND CARE THAT HE DESERVES. IN RETURN, YOU WILL GET A LOYAL, LIFETIME COMPANION.



Please fill out an adoption application at www.cedar-rapids.org/animal. Once the application is approved, you will be able to meet with the dog you want to see. To be approved, all animals in the home must be sterilized and current on a rabies vacation.
*The spay/neuter surgery is included in the adoption fee of $125. * We always prefer that our animals go to indoor homes.
*OWNING a pet is a lifetime commitment! Please be ready to make that commitment before you adopt a pet!
*BREED DISCLOSURE: Due to the fact that most of our adoptable pets are strays, we cannot guarantee their breed. We list the pets breed as the one that best matches the physical appearance, temperament, and personality of the animal-in some cases it's purely a guess. The pet may also be listed as a mix when it’s actually a purebred.
