Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier mix
Description:Hi, I'm Mahlaya a very sweet and a little shy American Staffordshire Terrier mix who is need of a new home. The older female dog in the home started picking on me when I was 7 months old. We were separated and went to training and things were fine again. But then it started again and we have been separated for a while now. Dad is willing to continue to work with us, but our future Mom says one of us has to go. I guess I drew the short straw. Being separated all the time isn't a great way for me to live. I want to be part of the family and be able to interact all the time.
I'm good with small dogs and I ignore other dogs when I get to go to Petsmart and Home Depot. I'm active and playful, but can also be a cuddle buddy too. I love children, toys and playing fetch and I absolutely love the water! I've had formal training and know -- sit, stay, lay down, shake, high five, return to side and come. I walk well on a leash and love to go for runs and walks too. I'm house and crate trained and will let you know if I have to go out. I hope you won't be deterred by my breed and will come and meet me and see for yourself what a wonderful girl I am.
