My name is Anita. I am a four year old Bulldog/American Staffordshire Terrier mix. If there is one thing you need to know about these two breeds of dog it’s that they love to be with their people. Likewise, I’m the kind of girl that wants to be in the house with my family. Although I especially love women I do well with children also. Sometimes though, I’m nervous around men, their big booming voices can be intimidating. I like to play with other dogs too. After a slow introduction and some time to get used to them I think they are fun. Cats are another story though. I really don’t care for them so I should live in a home that is cat free.
I’m considered a moderately active dog and love to go for walks, play in the water and fetch a ball. Like most dogs it’s best to keep me occupied or I might get into mischief like taking food off the counter or chewing on things left on the floor. (I like chewing on those plastic pop bottles!) Just keep me supplied with toys and bones to chew on and I do very well. I especially like squeaky toys and stuffed animals. I am housetrained but need to go outside every six hours or so. I just can’t hold it longer than that.
My former owners let me have the run of the house. I have never been crate trained so they let me sleep where ever I wanted. Sometimes I even slept on the sofa. A home with a fenced in yard would be best for me. I tend to wander if I’m left outside alone and I would hate to get lost.
I am a friendly, affectionate dog that is also a bit insecure. I need a family that will spend time with me and can be firm but gentle. I have many wonderful qualities and am a very devoted dog. I’m looking for a family to love.
