Needs
I'm Kirk, Adopt Me!
Pit Bull Terrier Mix | Senior | Male

Eleven-year-old Kirk is an older gentlemen with a heart of gold. This happy guy wants nothing more but to love and be loved in return. He’s looking for a nurturing companion who will take him on walks to smell all the smells, and also make sure he has a cozy place to nap. Kirk has spondylosis, and is doing well on a daily Rimadyl regimen. He had a grade 2 mast cell tumor removed, and chest x-rays showed no evidence of cancer spreading to his lungs. Kirk has been treated for severe skin irritation, itchy paws, and an ear infection. While these have resolved, it’s possible he will need management for skin allergies. Kirk dribbles small amounts of urine, which is easily managed by having him wear a “belly band” that is changed several times a day. Kirk has facial nerve paralysis on his left side, of unknown cause. Kirk has a positive history with other dogs. We recommend he does not go into a home that has cats or small animals. He currently weighs 64 pounds.

Kirk's adopter must be at least 18 years old with valid state-issued identification. ARF encourages family members to participate in the adoption process, especially children and family dogs. Please visit ARF's web site for information on adoption and to view more cute canines.
