In shelter Dog

Aurora, CO, 80012
Pet name:
Staffordshire Bull Terrier
Putting all of his 80 pounds into living and loving, 6-year-old Tank is, quite simply, terrific. Sweet, easygoing and friendly, he thrives on his foster moms affection and especially loves having his chest scratched and both sides of his belly petted. He also loves his daily morning and afternoon walks and engaging with other friendly dogs, then chilling out at home and chewing contentedly on toys, bones and bully sticks. Innocently unaware of his size (teenagers would make ideal companions for him), he enjoys taking car rides, rarely barks and doesnt mind being bathed. Fond of all treats, accepting them gently, and motivated by food, toys and love, he currently knows "come", "stay", "off", and "no", and is both leash and house trained. Preferring his kibble on the small size, he also prefers getting ready for bed by 7:30 PM, sleeping soundly through the night on his comfy, cozy dog bed. Now all this gentlest of giants wants is to win the hearts of an equally loving home, preferably with a securely fenced backyard, that will teach him the rest of his commands and keep him petted and pampered fur-ever.
