History- A litter of puppies were turned into a rural shelter. Mom was an American Staffordshire Terrier and dad was unknown. The puppies were scheduled to go to an out of state rescue however that rescue backed out at the last minute. The puppies risked being sent back to the shelter for euthanasia so we agreed to bring them here. 

Temperament- Initially- Very standoffish, shy, and weary. Czr would not do good in a busy home with a lot of visitors. Once he bonds he is a big ol lap dog-- he loves laps, cuddling on the couch, and hugs. Once he has bonded he is very sweet, playful, and happy who loves his toys. He does look intimidating because he is so serious but he is a shy guy who just wants love..   

Energy Level- Mid to lower level energy- loves to play chase and wrestle with the other dogs (he is with Jacques, Taffy, and Piquin). They wrestle, play tug, play chase, and just have fun but he would really love to have his own person to love and cuddle with on the couch.

Dogs/Cats- Good with the other dogs and cats

Housetrained- House trained perfectly using a dog door. There have been no mistakes at all.

This guy is so handsome, loving, and gentle with his family. However, gaining his trust will take some time and treats. He is one of those dogs that will require several visits before transitioning to a new home and then should be kept on leash for at least a week or two. Once he bonds he is the most amazingly beautiful, happy, goofy boy ever. He is stocky but not large. He would love a family to love and call his very own who he can sprawl out on the couch with. He will make someone an amazing pet as he bonds strongly and becomes an amazing protector.

Adoption fee is a donation to the rescue - he is neutered, has been given all age appropriate vaccinations, dewormed, microchipped, 3 yr rabies vacc, HW tested, collar and tags, training information, and all the support you need.
