HI - I'M SHORTY! My name is fitting since I'm short and stalky dude who has been waiting too long for a home! I'm a 9-year-old English Staffordshire mix, and was rescued near Los Angeles. I have been waiting for a home for 7 years, since the original rescue who took me in closed and gave me up. I'm a wonderful and sweet guy. I love to play ball and snuggle on the couch. I like some dogs but not others, so would thrive as an only dog. No cats for me please! I'm super affectionate with people and would love a home with a single person, a couple, or a family with older kids. I'm quite strong still despite my age so need a strong owner! I get excited to go for walks and will carry my ball around the house or yard. I'm a real character who will make you smile, with my stunning good looks and awesome personality. Can you adopt me?
