My heart is broken and I'm absolutely crushed but due to my most unfortunate living situation, I need to rehome the love of my life.
He's a d**n good working dog and has incredible potential so he needs to go to a sport home. We've been training for PSA, (I'm sure he could pass his PDC and most likely the 1s, but I have yet to work up the balls to enter a trial!) but he would thrive in SchH, tracking or pulling as well.
Here's some info on him:
Trooper, CGC is a neutered male APBT (born 01/01/2007). He is super social with people, but will light up like a match when told. He hits hard on the suit. He'll take the pocket, back or arm, whatever is presented to him. His hunt, search and retrieve drives are pretty stellar and his prey drive is off the charts. He's wicked food/toy/ball motivated and loves to work.
he is very picky with other dogs and absolutely hates cats. He is of course housebroken and crate trained. He is affectionate and lovable and cuddly with his people so i'd really like to see him in a home that is going to treat him like a member of the family in addition to working him.
I have some clips of us messing around from 2 summers ago on my youtube page.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r9jM3Lk6tT4

He is certainly more mature and calm now than he was back then. He doesn't scream any more and actually barks when guarding or alerting. I have attached a couple pictures and will try to get more video of him working, as well as some examples of his hunt drive if anyone wants it.
Please note: Trooper is available to an APPROVED home ONLY and I will NOT ship him!! I'm happy to drive him to the right person. If it doesn't work out in his new home, he needs to come back to me! I have had a lot of interest in him, just haven't found the right match.
SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY PLEASE!
DO *NOT* CONTACT ME ABOUT TROOPER IF YOU DO NOT PLAN ON WORKING HIM AND JUST WANT A PET DOG!!!!!!!!
