Arrival Story:
Etu (named after Native American word for 'sun') was wandering around the streets in nthe Bronx of NYC. A former adopter and support of our rescue works a canine hotline there and learned of a 12 yo girl who had found a sweet puppy in the streets, brought him home, and found the family cuold not keep him (mom is allergic). The nice family kept him until someone stepped up to foster him, and Etu made his way to Pittsburgh. So far, he has adjusted great to his new city, but is ready to be adopted! Etu is about 6 mo old as of July 10, 2011.

Etu is 6 mo old, fawn and white in color. We think he is a boxer/pit mix, maybe some hound mixded in there. He lives with three other dogs ranging in sizes from 6-65 lbs, mixed genders. He LOVES LOVES LOVES other dogs and we'd like him placed with at least one other, as they are his true buddies. He loves to wrestle and run. He has never been close to a cat but I have the feeling he would chase, so we think no cats at this time. He does great with kids and his foster dad has a three year toddler who Etu loves cuddling with. He can get excited at first meet, so watch the wiggling with litttle ones! But he means no harm and just wants to lick, hug, and play. He is EXTREMELY affectionate and you can often find him on his back rolling around to have his belly rubbed. He sleeps either in bed with humans squished on a pillow, or ON TOP of another dog, cuddling.

Forums Motto:
When in doubt, play!
