Meet Newt

Newt is a handsome 5yr old neutered male American Bulldog. He is super sweet and super kissable!! He loves toys of all kind and enjoys a game of fetch in the yard. He is not the best at giving the toy back all the time but he is still a blast to play with!! He is pretty low key most of the day in the house. He is housebroken and crate trained.
Newt lives with kids ranging from 3 to 10 yrs old. He is great with them and seems to love my 3yr old the best. He will actually rollover for her to pet his belly. However, sometimes knocks her down as a result of it but he has amazing intentions. He does get excited when his people, his kids, and when new people come in the house. He will jump and get mouthy. We are working on correcting this behavior and he has made some improvements. This can be intimidating for smaller kids. My kids are dog savvy and deal very well with this behavior.
This amazing boy is a total gem! We are in love with him and want him to go to an amazing family that will give him a lifetime of love and affection! He totally deserves the best!!

Newt is in Bucks County, PA.
