Who needs armor when you can have a good boy instead? Here to defend against all who would wish ill-will on your kingdom—we mean home—is Knight, our 59-pound pittie!

One-year-old Knight is a friendly, wiggly boy. He is easily excited, and loves to run around to explore new places. We think he would do best in a home with land as far as the eye can see and impenetrable castle walls—a yard with a fence, that is.

Knight knows how to sit and offer his paw, especially if you have a treat in return for his tricks. This boy seeks a reward for his services. For all his fancy tricks, Knight does need a review of basic training to round out his manners. His eagerness to explore will sometimes lead to leash-pulling, but we imagine it won’t be hard to tucker him out after a few fetch quests.

Despite the tough exterior, Knight is a real sweetie looking for someone who is willing to understand his needs. We do ask potential adopters to keep in mind that he does not like to be restrained, specifically at the vet. Leashes and harnesses do not bother him, but during his last trip to the vet for a checkup, he became contentious when held down and administered his vaccines.

Knight would do best in a home with children above 12 and being the only pet.
