My name is Darwin.
I am an extremely GENTLE, sensitive, and personable 4 year old Staffordshire Terrier/Pit Bull mix. I weigh about 65lbs, but I'm essentially just an oversized lap dog (no, really- I am).
What you need to know about me:
I need a stable, structured, and calm home. I am very stressed out whenever I go outside, and prefer to stay home then go on walks or out into public places. The perfect situation for me would be a house with a fenced in yard or patio where I can easily do my business. Just something simple!
I am fearful and insecure around other dogs, but I have slowly made a couple of furry friends, including another dog that I am fostered with currently. An owner who is experienced with special needs dogs like me would be best since you understand the need to be patient, and to give me lots of encouragement and leadership. I think I would benefit from training classes where I can build my confidence and learn to be social. It would also help us bond which would be great.
I am always curious about what you are doing- so if you hear someone tip-toeing behind you, that would be me! I know basic commands, and I am house trained- 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. I also like to sing when I get excited, which is mostly whenever I see you!
I am neutered, micro-chipped and up to date on all of my shots.
If you are interested in meeting me, please contact my foster mom Rachelâ at: email@example.com
