ADOPTED!!Meet AJ, our super handsome young Bull Terrier mix who's all decked out in his finest tuxedo. All he needs is a cummerbund to make his spiffy outfit complete. The origin of the cummerbund can be found in India's military history, it was designed to take the place of the vest at formal dinners, to be more comfortable in the incredible heat of the region. It later became an accessory of the tuxedo in the early 1900's when fashion rules for the aristocracy deemed it necessary to attend "Black Tie" functions.
Now, the cummerbund's usefulness could really give AJ a leg up on finding a furever home, you see, he's still a puppy and a tad messy at the dinner table. With the pleats of his cummerbund facing up, it serves as a great crumb catcher for all those tidbits that fall from any facial hair (or fur as the case may be). It's also a wonderful place to hold one's concert tickets as AJ's tuxedo doesn't have pockets.
Now little Mr AJ hasn't had a whole lot of life experiences, like concerts or car rides or even dog parks. There are a lot of things around that startle him and he often feels that he needs to act like a tough guy around other critters, so a bit of training, reassurance and socializing will be needed at his new home. Humans are his favorite room mates, he's yet to meet one that hasn't become his best friend at "Hello". He's got the lap cuddles down pat, is working on being a good walker, and sometimes remember what "sit" means.
AJ has been neutered, is up to date on his shots and is ready to impress you with his intelligence, affection and astounding good looks.
