Hi, I'm Mahlaya a very sweet and a little shy American Staffordshire Terrier X 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 (I've successfully completed Petsmart's intermediate and advanced education classes as well as successfully completing the AKC Canine Good Citizen Test) 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 will come meet and see for yourself what a wonderful girl I am.
