In shelter Dog

Phoenix, AZ, 85042
Pet name:
American Staffordshire Terrier
Coat length:
Meet Artie! Artie is crate/potty trained, microchipped, 72 lbs and healthy as a horse! This smart boy knows how to Sit, Stay, Go Potty, Come, and Kisses! He loves playing with his rope toys and kongs, and getting all the affection you can handle!

Arties favorite thing in the world is chest rubs and napping with you! He does have some insecurities, and shows signs of possible abuse in his past. He was in the shelter for far too long and eventually did not do well there. He has really started coming out of his shell and still has some young playful and a little naughty puppy like behavior. This 2 year old guy has bounced between at least 3 different homes, so he hasnt had any stability in his life. Wed love to find a patient home willing to work with Artie and understand him better. 

Artie needs a home with no other pets for now, or could possibly live with one other dog if his human is experienced in separating and rotating for several weeks. He would need slow exposure and training, and is still working on his leash training. We know with some dedication, Artie will be the perfect dog for his new home! To talk to a volunteer about Artie, please apply right away!
