Briggs, pit bull terrier mix
Briggs is a male pit bull terrier puppy in the care of Bright Point Rescue.
Briggs will get along great with kids, dogs or cats. He is vaccinated. Have no fear: he’s already house-trained.
Briggs’ current caretakers say:
Briggs is just a pup. He is doing great with his potty-training and has only had one accident all week. He will need a little time, training and attention, as all puppies do. He is a laid-back boy but likes to play rough with the dogs in his foster home. He is learning that mouthing is not appropriate and may be best suited for a home with older children who can guide him in that behavior. He sleeps in his crate at night.
