Don_towelJohn Ritter and his best bud Don Knotts came in together from the Richland County Dog Warden’s shelter in Mansfield. We had originally requested to pull Don Knotts and then saw video of the pair playing together and knew the shelter could use help so we agreed to take both dogs. They were excellent companions on the drive north to our facility and have been best friends since arriving. It’s always nice to have a pair of dogs arrive together so they can keep one antoher company during their transitional decompression phase before heading into a foster home.


Don Knotts is about six months old, he’s a happy-go-lucky pitbull terrier mix puppy. He is around 30# and will probably stay the size of a “pocket pitty”. He is young, playful and eager to please. He and John Ritter do not need to stay together long term…both dogs are great dogs and will be able to easily transition into forever homes once we find them! However, if you are looking to adopt two great dogs look no further….this pair could be a great pair to place together!


Don Knotts is your typical puppy who has energy and loves to play. He is crate trained and house trained (but expect some transitional accidents coming into a new home). Don has been exposed to younger kids and does very well. His nickname is Donuts!
