CULLMAN, Ala. – Oats, an approximately 2-year-old male pit bull terrier mix with a toasted tan coat, is available for adoption at the Cullman County Animal Shelter.

Oats is an intelligent and agile high-energy pup who enjoys running in the recreation area of the shelter, yet still understands leash etiquette. Oats looks to his handlers for encouragement and is happy to be by their side. You’re sure to crack a smile at his animated expressions; you won’t ever have to guess what he’s thinking!

His mixed breed lends to his muscular and lean frame, which would make him a prime ultimate frisbee fetcher, and he’s sure to push you to finish that last mile of your hike.

Ready to add Oats into your life? Head over to Cullman County Animal Shelter at 935 Convent Road NE, Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m., for a meet and greet.

His adoption fee includes neuter, DHLPP vaccine, Bordetella vaccines, rabies vaccine, wormer, general exam at the vet and microchip.
