My name is Darwin, aka Darwin Lovebug. I am an extremely GENTLE, massively sensitive, and personable 4 year old  Staffordshire Terrier/Pit Bull mix. I weigh about 70lbs, but I'm essentially just an oversized lap dog (no, really- I am). I am always curious about what you are doing- so if you hear someone tip-toeing behind you, that would be me, Mr. Curious!  I know basic commands, and I am housetrained- I do not like to be crated, but because I'm such a good boy, my foster mom trusts me alone while she's at work all day. Speaking of home life, I'm actually agreeable to smaller spaces, so apartment living is fine with me because I don't even like to go on walks.  I'm just happiest and most content to be inside of a home all day, curled up with my favorite stuffed animal that I carry around for comfort and entertainment- I don't want much activity or have a desire to be outdoors as I am super sensitive to scary noises and activity (I think this is from being chained up in someone's backyard in my previous life before I was rescued).
 
I have been living with the same foster since June 2013, and little by little I have become less anxious around other dogs. I have been through socialization camp, which has boosted my confidence quite a bit, but I'm still scared of most other dogs when I am outdoors on leash (again, because I was always a backyard dog, I just never learned how to walk on leash calmly or how to meet other dogs). I guess you can say I am dog selective- a dominant, loud or pushy kind of dog will only upset me, but if you are a fun, calm dog, you and I can be best friends- just like my foster sister Mynka and I are (she's the white pit bull in the pictures- she is my favorite and yes, she's also looking for a forever home). I also have no toy or food aggression issues- I am not jealous and do not have any issues sharing, which is also great for any families out there with kids (which I do love as well, someone fun to follow around, take naps with, and watch tv next to at night).
 
All I want is a home to call my own, and a family who understands that I am just a sensitive but extremely loving dog whose confidence comes from the security and patience you give me.
 
I am neutered, microchipped and up to date on all of my shots. If you are interested in fostering or adopting me, let's set up a meet and greet! Please contact my foster mom Rachel  at: HollywoofToTheRescue@gmail.com​

About Ace of Hearts Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing dogs from various Los Angeles shelters the day they are to be euthanized. Our goal is to help provide animals with a second chance to a happy life and to help reduce pet overpopulation through spay and neuter programs. Once rescued, we place our dogs into loving foster homes while they await adoption. We do not keep dogs in kennels. Placing the dogs in foster homes is the first step to rehabilitation, as it allows us to thoroughly evaluate a dog's demeanor and needs enabling us to make the perfect match of dog and permanent owner. We attribute our high rate of successful placement to our foster program. At Ace of Hearts, we do not discriminate against any breed, including those in the bully breed family. Additionally, Ace of Hearts is dedicated to educating the public on how to be responsible pet owners and on the importance of spaying and neutering. We believe the real solution to pet overpopulation is through spaying and neutering pets.
