- Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)

My name is Jimbo!
I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, and good with kids.
Jimbo is a playful, fun-loving boy who wants to be a part of everything you do…he can’t get enough quality time with you! He aims to please. He wants to make you happy and feels bad when he disappoints (which is not very often). Jimbo loves every person he’s ever met and absolutely LIGHTS UP when kids are around!! He will make a wonderful family companion.
Jimbo can be very insecure in new environments and fearful of other dominant dogs (especially other males). Due to his insecurities and issues with certain dogs, Jimbo should be part of an active family familiar with the breed and capable of satisfying his needs. He will do best in a home with larger dogs (female) that do not pose a threat to him. Jimbo is a 50lb American Staffordshire Terrier. He was ‘nanny’ to three kids but not contained well or exercised enough so he kept escaping & getting into trouble. Since with foster (and being neutered), Jimbo has learned what it means to be an integral part of a pack and no longer wants or tries to escape. He is a very joyful dog who really lights up the room with his energy.
Jimbo is fully house & crate trained…he will not go to the bathroom or destroy anything as long as you’re gone. He can sit, lay down and come here and knows his name very well. He is fully up to date on all vetting, neutered and micro-chipped. He gets along great with people and submissive dogs.
Jimbo needs a family with kids old enough to manage him and with medium to large dogs more on the submissive side…if any. He would be a great only dog because he loves 100% of your attention. Can Jimbo come home with you?? Jimbo's adoption fee is $125.00. If you are interested in him please fill out an adoption application on our website at www.forgottendogs.org/adoption_application or email his foster dad at email@example.com. Be sure to specify that you are looking for Jimbo!!! Thanks!
