Well, hello there! Thank you for taking a look at my profile! If you are looking for an active, compact, super friendly and loving dog, then you've come to the right place! My name is Dutchess and I am about 3-4 years old and 35 lbs. I am a muscular and stocky mauve colored staffordshire mix, but I'm rather on the small side. I am currently in foster care and loving it. I am completely crate trained and I have not had one accident in the house. I have been around dogs, cats and children and I love them all. My heart is as big as my smile and I just can't stop smiling! The humans that had "owned" me before over-bred me for a long time, so I am very grateful that my breeding days are over. I can now enjoy being cared for instead. I could be ok as an apartment dog if I had a few walks or runs throughout the day. I would REALLY like to have a fenced yard or an enclosed area for exercise because I really do like to run, but I mostly want to be with you! So, even though I like to get in a good "zoomie" or two around the yard after doing my business, I want to come right back inside and be a part of whatever your doing. I want to be part of a family and not just be "owned" by one. My foster mom says that I give the best kisses, I just need to contain how excited I get because I love people SO SO much! If you are looking for a super friendly, all around fun girl with a great temperament, then look no further! Apply for me today so we can meet! I am spayed/neutered, up to date on age appropriate vaccinations, kept on intestinal parasite and heartworm preventative, and microchipped, all of which is covered under my adoption fee of $85.00.
