Wow, what a face!!! Maybe I'm a little self absorbed but a dog has to tell it like it is in order to get out of this place. My name is Terry and I am a 3 yr. old neutered Staffordshire Terrier/German Shepherd mix. People, especially those who love me, have been heard to comment on my magnificent face and yes, my eyes are pleading for someone to rescue me from the West Los Angeles Animal Shelter where I have been since August 16, 2010...
I can tell you in all honesty that I am adored by the volunteers who work with me. Would I lie to you? Never!! My volunteer buddies describe me as sweet and a "good boy". They love to spend time with me and, of course, I eat it up. I am a little timid at first but once I get to know you I warm up real fast. I don't like walking through the shelter because all of the barking and chaos makes me a little nervous but once out in the yard I am one very happy boy. I love to run, run, run and if anyone really looks closely they will see that I am laughing. This for me is the good life at least for that moment which sadly will end all too fast.
I am proud to tell you that I walk well on leash and even passing strangers on the street does not bother me at all. I don't react to other dogs because they want homes just like I do. I absolutely love to have my back rubbed but then who doesn't. I wish that I could convince you what a really nice dog I am and how very badly I want a forever home.
Please help me find a home of my own and people who will love me and treat me with kindness. My time is running out. Please help me!!!
P.S. Terry came in with Rocky (black Pit Bull) so evidently he's friendly with other dogs. Of course, proper introduction first!!!
