Come look at this cute dog!

Posted in Uncategorized

Are you in the New York-ish kind of area? Because this little buddy:

Black and white American Staffordshire Terrier, about 1 year oldis looking for a forever home. Yes, I tricked you into looking at an adoption post. I lured you in with the cute dog hook.

That’s right, this adorable little guy wants to be in your heart forever and ever. Right now, he’s living with some foster people. But look at his face. He wants to love YOU.

His foster family says:

His name is Arnold, and he’s one year old. Jess and I are watching him for a while to help with his leash training and his manners training (he is neutered and housebroken, as Jess reminded me). But he is a love who wants to be your dog.

After he got settled at our place and comfortable, he showed that he wants to learn and be a good boy. He quickly learned to sit and wait for his food, and to wait before he enters the apartment. At first, he’d jump up to say hi, but he’s learned those aren’t good manners, and he’s now doing better.

On walks, he’s doing a very good job already with learning to heel, and he’s been a conscientious walker! He still pulls to go and see dogs, but we’re working with him to move away from that behavior.

He’s very snuggly and very playful, but also very gentle to his friends. Even when we’re playing tug of war with his chewie rope, he never nips or bites.

In short: this dog is awesome. You want this dog. He will be your best friend.

Look at this big stupid smile:

Same black and white American Staffordshire terrier, smiling like the biggest, cutest thing ever.

 

If you’re interested (or you know someone who is) and want to get in contact with Arnold’s foster family, please email me at the address on my contact page, and I’ll put you in touch with them. I assume no responsibility for any other part of the process, I’m just the middleman.

And yes, I do have a soft-spot for this dog because he looks just like mine. I really can’t be blamed for that, can I?

  1. “New Yorkish kind of area”? As a former New Yorker, I gotta say that is quite vague. It’s a HUUUUGGGGEEEEE state. Where in New York?

      Probably the city, not the state.

      I legitimately do not know where these people are located except that it says the state is New York. But that dog would be worth any length of driving.

    I want a dog so much… But I don’t have the time and house space to properly care for it. I keep having to remind myself if this….

    ugh! I’m actually a New Yorker who LOVES pitbulls but I’ve got a crazy cat and a small apartment with another dog living upstairs so the chances of me being able to house and afford that adorable guy are not great.

    Damn shame though, he’s so cute!!!
