Hello there, Nigel is my name. I am a 6 year old American Staffordshire Terrier. I am as genteel as my name indicates. I am not too large, just 54 pounds, and gentle and calm as can be. I'm a handsome light brown color with white paws, chest and a distinctive stripe my head. It's easy to collar and leash me. I walk very calmly and gently, always listening to you for commands, such as Easy or Wait. When other dogs walk by, I just nod my head hello and continue walking - no overreaction from me. If you want to take a break I'll happily sit or lay by your side. I already know SIT and will take my treat reward gently. I want to lean into you so you can pet and brush me. I really like anything that keeps me close to you. I have very good manners and want to please you.
