Chenji the Pit Bull/Lab mix

American Pit Bull Terrier / Labrador Retriever

Rescue dog stories are often compelling, right? Ours is no exception. Chenji was abandoned in a local park about a year ago near a friend's office. She spent two months attempting to find a good home for him without success. She then asked us to foster care him while she continued the search. Within a few days in our home, we told her to forget it, he was where he belonged. We had fallen in love with this ultra friendly, active, healthy lab/pit bull mix with the red coat and winning smile. In the past year he has stolen the hearts of all who meet him. And he's more than just a pretty face - his intelligence permitted him to walk on our treadmill within 10 minutes (he even has his own You Tube video.) Also, he adjusted readily to running along side my bike using the Walky Dog device. When this 60 pound heart throb finishes his daily exercise routine, he melts into a contented (though somewhat heavy) lap dog. One more thing: "Chenji" is Swahili for "change". We're so thankful we replied to our friend's request to take him in last fall with "yes, we can". You can find video of this outstanding boy at

Glad to see Chenji impressed Marissa so much last month. If you would like to see him in video all you have to do is Google Chenji Art Hoffman and lots of neat videos of him will be listed. Thanks for all the kind words from the many Chenji fans to date.
