Meet Wilbert!
Wilbert is a 1.5 year old Pit Bull mix who cannot wait until he meets his forever family. He was unfortunately left outside for most of his life, but things have changed and now he is living in a loving foster home. Wilbert would do best if he had a friendly confident canine sibling in his new home since he loves to play with other dogs. He is currently learning what it is like to be an inside dog and is absolutely excelling at it! Wilbert will need an owner who is experienced with dogs and can help Wilbert become even more amazing.
