Gentle giant Bam Bam No. 60 wants to be your new best friend. I may look like just another big pit bull, but I'm really just a great big lover boy. Even though I'm quite strong, I know when to be gentle around my pals. I was left at the shelter with no note last November. I know how to sit, lay down, stay and I walk well on my harness. Maybe with all my cool commands and winning personality, folks will see beyond the stereotypes of my breed and see me for who I really am - a great dog with an even greater heart.
