Adopt-a-BullBreed: American Staffordshire Terrier Gender: Male Estimated Date of Birth: December 23, 2017 Size: 75 lbs Location: Marietta, GA
Camo ended up at Henry County Animal Control where pit bulls are not adopted out to the public. Lucky for him, FTTF has some amazing foster families! Camo was on a foster to adopt with a family, but they decided their teenager was not pulling her weight when it came to taking care of him so they returned him. Camo had no problem adjusting to a new foster home with dogs he had never met before. This guy is solid!
Not only is Camo handsome, he has a wonderful temperament and fantastic, goofy personality. A Wisdom Panel DNA test revealed that he is 100% American Staffordshire Terrier. He has a medium energy level and is well-behaved in the home. He is still relatively young and loves to play a good game of fetch. Although he is not overly demanding in his exercise requirements, he does benefit from a bit of daily exercise. A simple 15 minute session of fetch with a Chuck-It is enough to keep him happy. Camo also loves toys and will entertain himself for hours with a plain and simple Kong. He still thinks he is a small puppy and is not aware of his massive size, but he is a super-snuggler and will happily lounge on the sofa with his family. He loves to roughhouse with doggie foster siblings and he even takes correction from the bossier lady in the home, however he is not suited for a home with cats. He is rocking his house-manners and is getting better about greeting people without jumping. 'Good Boy' is his favorite phrase to hear aside from 'Are You Hungry' or 'Play Ball.' Without daily exercise, a state of playful excitement is easily incited where he gets extra silly and boisterous. This is when his foster mom refers to him as 'Wreck-It-Ralph.' For this reason, Camo would prefer a home with older children since although he adores people of all size, he may unintentionally knock a small child over with his exuberance. He could probably live with smaller children, but it would take firm, consistent boundary-setting from the adults to make sure he understands he has to be calm and gentle around them. He does listen to direction so it really could be possible. Camo can be a bit sensitive so a stern voice correction is all he needs to put his listening ears on. He knows he is not allowed in the kitchen when food is being prepared so with a finger snap he is quick to exit and sit at the boundary. His foster mom tries to discourage begging too so he will also get in his bed or out of the room when people are eating. He is crate-trained and housebroken and requires a 6 foot privacy fenced yard. Just call him Mister Personality - everyone that meets him falls in love! This goober-face is just a big, mushy, enthusiastic puppy who is looking for a forever family to call his own.
Camo has been eating Hills Science Diet Sensitive Stomach & Skin Dry Dog Food. It is not a prescription diet and can be ordered on Chewy or purchased from any pet store. The NutriSource food eaten by the other dogs in our program was a tad bit rich for him and he had loose poops. There are likely other foods he would do well on, this was just the first alternative we tried. Camo also takes 1 Apoquel tablet a day to keep his environmental allergies at bay. We just toss it in his bowl with his dinner and he eats it - easy!
