Posted 10/8/2015. Delaney is a very sweet 2-3 year old 55 lb American Staffordshire Terrier/Hound dog mix looking for a home where she can receive plenty of attention and love. Could that be your home? This sweet girl came to us with a series of injuries and after living a life where she looks to have mainly been used as a puppy breeding machine. However once patched up and shown some love, Delaney’s true colors began to show through. This lovely girl weighs in at around 55 lbs but is a true “lapdog” and will not hesitate to crawl right up into your lap for the attention that she craves. Delaney loves peanut butter and chew treats. We believe that she will do well in a home with other dogs (she did fine in foster care with both the male and female resident dogs) but that introductions should be done slowly so that Delaney does not get stressed by the situation. Delaney is not a fan of felines so a cat-free home will be best for her. She should do fine in a home with older children (ages 12yrs and up) but a home with smaller kids may not work out because it may be too disruptive and loud for her liking depending on the children in question. Despite this, she seems sweet with all kids she has met in public and does well with all male and female adults as well. We believe that Delaney would also do best in a home with someone who is retired, working part-time or from home, or where work hours are at least staggered so that she is not left alone for long periods of time. She needs a home outside of the city. Delaney is spayed, microchipped and up-to-date on all of her vetting and vaccinations and is currently attending training at Camp Hill SCI as a member of the HOPE (Hounds of Prison Education) program. You can check out her weekly journal entries here: http://hopedogs.org/delaney-camphill.html.
Please consider adding Delaney to your family and giving this girl a home to finally call her own.
