Physical Description: Sebastian is a beautiful, long-legged Boxer/Pitbull mix. His brown-and-white fur is short and very soft--and he hardly sheds!

Personality: Sebastian is a sweetheart who loves to cuddle and give kisses. He keeps himself occupied for hours with his toys, and his favorite game is fetching Frisbees and balls (he can fit 3 in his mouth at the same time!). He isn't destructive and is very well house-trained and crate-trained. He is eager to please; learns the ropes of living in new environments quickly; and already knows a variety of commands like Sit, Down, Shake, Roll Over, Stay, and Come. rnrnSebastian comes with a little baggage, as many strays do. Although he loves playing off-leash with other dogs and gets along great with his current foster brothers, he barks ferociously at other dogs while on the leash. He is also very strong and pulls at the same time, so seeking help from a professional is encouraged and allowing children to walk him is not recommended. Sebastian is also able to jump shorter fences so a taller fence or supervision is a must. Might not make a great apartment dog as he is high energy and difficult to walk.rnrnSebastian has a lot of love to give and will thrive with a patient family who understands that he is still young, and who takes the time to train and socialize him.

History: Sebastian was found as a stray in a rural county.
