Betty Boop

Gender: Female
Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier
Secondary Breed: Mix
Status: Adoptable

A LOYAL, PROTECTIVE FAMILY MEMBER: 7 years old / 50 lbs.

Hello! My name is Betty & want to let you know up front, I do not like strangers! You may sleep easy knowing I am guarding you while you rest. I love my people & adore cuddles and couch time. Just remember, I have got your back! My ideal home is a single person who needs the comfort, love, & safety of my presence!

• OTHER DOGS/CATS/KIDS: I want to be the Alpha when I’m with other dogs. Being the Alpha dog hasn’t been an issue when other dogs don’t mind that I take the lead. So, if you have a submissive natured dog, let’s meet / No kitty cats, I’m just too much dog for a cat / No kids please. I do love kids but cannot deal with the coming & going of strangers/parents that accompany kids.

• PERSONALITY/ENERGY LEVEL: I love being with my people. I wouldn’t do well if you were gone all day at work. So, I’ll be happiest in a home with a stay/work from home family member who wants to spend lots of time with their dog. I do have some anxiety & bark if left alone for too long, so an apartment/townhome is not a good fit for me, also due to so many people coming & going (I’m on some meds for anxiety, see below). However, I was relaxed in my former foster home, which was peaceful, so just give me some time to adjust to a new home. Also, a home with a secure, tall fence would be best for me so that I have plenty of running space to work off some energy. I also did well with a dog walker in my temp. foster home. / My energy level is 4-6.

• SKILLS/CRATE/POTTY: I’m very smart & a proud graduate of the Mostly Mutts University training program. I’ve mastered the ‘sit’, ‘stay’, ‘down’, ‘come’, ‘drop it’, ‘leave it’ & ‘place’ commands. I also use proper door etiquette & have good leash manners. I do very well following direction from my trainers as well as the strong leaders in my former foster home. I ride well in the car too, so you can take me places with you / I do NOT like a crate but have done fine without one. Just have a designated room for me if you want to confine me while you are gone, and when strangers come over. I enjoyed sleeping at night on a comfy dog bed in my former foster’s bedroom / I had perfect potty manners on a regular schedule in my former foster home too.
• LIKES/DISLIKES: I love my daily walks & am a great running & hiking buddy. While I’ve worked hard with my trainers to feel more at ease with strangers, I just don’t all the time. I don’t need or want to go on very public crowded outings & would rather just hang at home with you, hike some trails, walk in the neighborhood, or play in the backyard. My favorite place to hang out is with my people / I have been reactive to unfamiliar people that entered my home, so I need to meet new people outdoors. People dressed in dark color clothing or uniforms make me very nervous, so I may be reactive to them. My trainers taught me skills to help manage this behavior, although I can still bark at times. They can give my forever family guidance on how to best handle my behavior. In my former home, I bit a person’s ankle who was dressed in dark clothing that approached me quickly without warning. I also don’t like being restrained by the vet & don’t like being in water. I don’t want to be crated or gated away from you. I would not be happy if I didn’t get the love & guidance which I thrive on.

• MEDICAL: I am on some anxiety medications & may be able to be weaned off those once that I’m settled into my new home. Time will tell. I’m current on vaccinations, micro-chipped & spayed.

I’m looking for a family to make me a cherished family member! My adoption fee is $100.00, & I’m in Kennesaw, Ga.
