About RJ-Handsome boy!
RJ is a three-year-old, 65-pound Staffordshire Terrier who has had a rough go of things having spent his youth in and out of the shelter system. He could really use a turn of good luck. Most recently, RJ has been staying with a dog trainer and has excelled in his lessons. He knows all the … foundational obedience skills, many tricks, walks well on a leash, and only barks when someone comes to the door. RJ will not annoy you with “needy-ness”. Unlike some dogs who follow you around and beg for attention at every turn, RJ is content to lay on his bed by the fire when he is not otherwise engaged. Snuggle sessions with RJ come only after months of trust are built and even then, physical affection is on his terms. He’s wary of strangers so patience is a must. Once you are in his circle of trust however, he can pour on the charm. We are looking for a dog savvy home for RJ and an owner whose heart is in rescue. We are not entirely clear on what he’s experienced in his young life but are committed to finding him a quiet home with a healthy routine where he can feel safe from now on. We are imagining a single person who works from home, or a couple, with no other pets or perhaps another female dog. RJ would like to be in a rural or semi-rural area with the ability to get out in nature regularly. He would not do well in an apartment or in a busy urban area. RJ does enjoy playing with other dogs and would be most happy if he had a few female dog-friends to play with regularly. Dog-dog play with girlfriends is by far his favorite form of exercise. He is not a dog park type of dog. His exercise requirements are medium – a couple of long walks a day and some off-leash play should suffice most days, with some occasional bigger adventures thrown in. As mentioned, he’s a big fan of positive reinforcement training. RJ is in good health and is physically fit – a strikingly handsome specimen! He is looking for a special person to bond with and to help him be successful in life, and in love. RJ’s adoption fee includes spay/neuter, basic vaccinations, rabies vaccination, and flea/tick treatment. Contact us at [email protected]
