Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / American Staffordshire Terrier (short coat). Hi my name is Bella Donna. I am about 4 yrs old and weigh about 47 lbs. I am on the shorter side, but I am strong. I am smart, and I am stubborn! But I am also very beautiful as every single person who sees me tells me that, almost like that is my second name. Bella Beautiful or Bella Bellisima! I have been in boarding for a long time, I would love to have my own comfy bed and a family to call my own. I would need a strong person, and someone who is just as stubborn or more so, than me, as I need my training to continue, if you don't remind me, then I will forget, and then I will get in trouble, as I will revert back to my puppy ways of jumping on people, and they say that is not cool. I think it is fun, but whatever, that is what they say. I am also friendly with people, I do like some other dogs, but I prefer to have all your attention to myself. I will probably learn to like another fur sibling, but you would have to introduce me slowly, as when I was younger another dog attacked me when I was just walking by him. Can you believe that! I love to go for walks and car rides. Adopotion fee: $150.00 To meet me, please complete an application on our website: pawprinthearts.pawprinthearts

More About American Staffordshire Terrier Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Hound / Mixed (short coat). I am Kennedy and I am about 4 years young. I was on the list to be euthanized at a high kill shelter, but was saved. Right now I live in a boarding facility and I wish every day for a forever home or at least a foster home. I am sweet and very handsome, as you can see. I play a little hard to get, but once I warm up, I am all yours. I just need my own special someone to work with me every day. I need strong leadership and someone who will follow through with my training, because if you don't remind me I will forget, then I will go back to my puppy ways of jumping! And people say that is not cool. I dream for a quiet environment with no young children. I have played with other dogs in the past, but would just need to be introduced in a slow manner. My adoption fee is only $150 and you can fill out an application at .pawprinthearts and then meet me to see for yourself how sweet I am.
