Oshie is a 2-3yr old American Staffordshire Terrier. He has a had a rough start to life and has spent almost 2yrs in the "shelter/rescue system". Oshie is a very focused, loyal, and loving boy. In the house Oshie likes to have a toy or bone that he can chew on while you watch TV. If he doesn't have something to chew on he will get into mischief and steal shoes or other items on the floor to tease you into a game of keep-away. Oshie loves to snuggle on the couch and has a big happy smile when he gets loved on. Oshie is house broken and crate trained and is quiet in his kennel when you are at work or out of the house.
Oshie has an obsession with balls and toys that would make him a great detection or sport candidate. Oshie has videos showing his ball/toy and hunt drive for any handlers or working homes that would like to adopt him. Oshie is not fazed by new places and has no concerns for loud noises like fireworks or thunder storms. Oshie will even dive into a pool for his toys and would likely make a fun dock diving partner. He is very intense with his toys and will snatch toys out of hands. He is still working on his out command and does not release toys easily. Oshie is working on obedience and agility skills in his foster home.
Oshie is dog selective and would do best as an only dog or in a home willing to rotate him with other dogs. He would do OK with another dog if the owner is local to San Antonio and willing to work with the MMK9 trainers to help him settle in. Oshie is also not recommended for homes with children under 13yrs because of his tendency to snatch anything that might be a toy out of peoples' hands.
