Abraham, also known as Abe, is a 7-year-old pit bull terrier mix who has been in foster care for about four months. He was saved by Purple PAWS hours before being euthanized.

Even though Abe is older, he still has lots of energy to play and run around the yard. He is very sweet and loves playing with toys.

Abe will need a home with either a small dog to be introduced to slowly or a home with no dogs. He does not do well with high-energy dogs. He has not been tested with cats but does great with kids.

Abe is a fun-loving dog who just wants a home that will love him and he will return the love with kisses and cuddles.
