This dear older guy was brought to the shelter last fall by a woman who was moving to a nursing home which would not permit her to take him with her. Obviously, they were one another's cherished companions for eight years. Santana is gorgeous! He has a classic Staffie build, with nice broad shoulders, but Santana is as gentle as a teddy bear! All he wants to do is put his head in your lap and stay there for the rest of his days.
Santana is good with other dogs, with cats, and with kids. He is housetrained. He is very lovable and loving in return. What gives Santana joy is the opportunity to lay in the sun, which streams through the kennel grating in the afternoon and visits from volunteers who sat patiently with him in his kennel, giving him back rubs, which elicit tail wags and lots of appreciative kisses. Sweet boy!
And check out his adorable photos...he has great taste in politics!!!
