Hi, my name is Wilhelm (Willie) and I came from a local shelter in South St. Paul as a stray. I currently weigh 62 pounds of pure muscle.

just got picked up by my foster moms a couple days ago so we are still getting to know each other! I am a 1 year old pitbull with a very sweet temperament. My moms say I look like a body builder and my favorite thing besides treats is to play with my new rope toy that was waiting for me at my foster's home! 

I am very strong and handsome, and was in the kennel with mostly other dogs before this so am still working on my manners (like when and where to go to the bathroom, and not jumping up on people). I am eager to please, and I know how to sit, although sometimes it takes me a minute. My mom says I am doing a great job walking on my leash, but I still pull sometimes if I get excited. I am pretty quiet, except for about 30 minutes before bed and if you leave me in my crate when you have to leave the house (mom says I sound like a ghost when she’s trying to go to sleep). However, once I’m asleep I’m good through the night in my kennel; no accidents! Just some cute pitbull snores. 
I love other dogs and grown up people, but haven’t spent much time around cats or kids, so not sure about them yet. I’m very food motivated and will do pretty much whatever you want for a pawful of kibble.

I would love to meet you! Please like, subscribe, or smash that adoption application button if you want to meet me too!
