Life as a male underwear model can be draining - just ask Floyd. After doing the rounds at Milan, Paris and New York, Floyd needed a change of pace. In a move that shocked the international modeling world (and pretty much jump started David Beckham's career in modeling Armani tighty-whities!), Floyd threw in the towel and retreated from the public's gaze. Floyd longed for the day when someone would look past his amazing physique and instead see the gentle, sometimes scared little boy that was trapped in this Adonis-like body. That day came when Floyd was in the unlikeliest of places for a super model - in a ditch, on the side of the road in Durham County, NC. It was from there that he was picked up and whisked off to a sanctuary of anonymity. Oh the joy of running and playing and not caring if he got muddy or had grass stains on his white patches!! The freedom and the food - oh the food - no more counting calories or grueling daily workouts to maintain his figure. In this oasis, brimming with other fur-coveredcreatures with questionable pasts, he ate till he was finally full and turned his attention to enjoying the simpler things in life...like mastering the art of playing fetch. The End. .... From Floyd's Foster Mom: OK, well that's the last time I ask a dog to write their own bio!! Seriously Floyd - an underwear model?? The TRUE low down on Floyd is as follows: he's about 2 years old, healthy as a horse, successfully treated and recovered from heart worm infection, extremely affectionate, great with cats and good with most dogs. But hey - if I'd led with that he would have sounded like most other dogs out there...and you wouldn't still be reading! So now that I have your attention, let me tell you more. Floyd has been assessed by a trainer and came through with a glowing report card. He is a very typical young adolescent pit bull. He is stubborn but very smart, dominant but willing to listen to a strong leader, fine to be around other dogs, but only dogs that can match his strength and won't be intimidated by his rough play. Like a lot of pit bulls, Floyd doesn't always know when enough is enough - therefore he should NEVER be left unattended with another dog. You know the saying: it's all fun and games until someone starts crying! Well, most times it's Floyd that ends up crying when the other dog has had enough of his exuberance. Therefore, careful monitoring of any playtime is essential. Floyd is 100% house-trained, crate-trained and leash-trained. He is exceptionally well-behaved and is an excellent guard dog....but don't think you're going to leave him outside to guard your property. Floyd has had it with being an outside dog, and now that he knows how comfortable a couch can be, he won't be satisfied being left outside alone! Floyd needs to go to a home that understands the breed and understands that they require training, vigilance and gentle authority throughout their life. Floyd is a smart, powerful young man and it is my responsibility - and the responsibility of his future owner - to make sure that he never gets himself into trouble. Only someone prepared to continue his obedience training will be considered for his adoption. Floyd is living in Durham, NC and will only be adopted within NC.
