Royal, about 15 months old, is a neutered male fawn Staffordshire Bull Terrier. He ended up at the WLA Shelter on Nov. 2nd as a stray. Shortly after, a stranger walked up to his kennel door and stuck his arm in so Royal growled and barked at him -- he didn't bite, but he certainly told the man he didn't appreciate his gesture (like people, dogs don't like everyone they meet). Royal was taken to Isolation and that's where he has lived for almost his entire stay at the shelter.
Shelter staff take Royal out when they can and he got out to run and play with a female PB not too long ago and they had a great time!
He is STRONG, loves to play, corrects easily (from both human and dog), and sits on command. No reported aggression toward male or female staff at the shelter.
Did Royal get a bad rap for an isolated incident? Meet Royal and judge for yourself!
