NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — This week’s Pet of the Week is a one-year-old American Pitbull Terrier Mix named Suede.

Suede, whose name comes from his smooth, velvety, fawn-colored coat, loves the company of both humans and other dogs. While he likes to be active scenting and exploring, making an ideal hiking partner, he also would love to chill and watch TV with his owners.

Already, Suede knows how to take treats and sit. In his new home, he hopes to practice even more commands.
