My name is Happy and I am a beautiful 3 yr old Staffordshire terrier mix. I am waiting for my forever person who wants to treat me like royalty to adopt me into a loving Central Florida home. A victim of neglect and abuse, I was abandoned and left to die in the front yard of one of the In Harmony with Nature volunteers. I was skin and bones and weak. I was nursed back to health and I am now ready to be loved and spoiled. I am named Happy because after all I've been through, I'm still a happy dog!
I am a housetrained, indoor dog and I know basic commands. I need to be indoors but I enjoy running around in the backyard with you for exercise. Afterwards, I’ll run back into the house and sit inside the door to happily wait for you to come inside too! I also enjoy long daily walks with my human. My favorite activities are to play with my toys, hang out with my human, and to cuddle up beside you and give you “Happy” kisses while you watch television. I love having my head and belly rubbed and I enjoy a good back scratching. I have been temperament tested and I am not aggressive. Even though some people think I look tough, I am really just a sweet, gentle, playful puppy at heart. I’m so sweet that I am not even a good guard dog. However, I have lots of love to give and I’m really intelligent. I am sensitive so I need a person who would speak to me with a gentle voice and who would not raise their hand to me or use a harsh tone. I would do well in a home where I can be the only dog and get all the pampering and loving and give lots of love back to my companion. I prefer a cat-free home. I am a neutered male and current on my vaccinations.
Are you my forever person who wants to adopt me as a cherished and valued member of your family? If so, I have a lot of love to give to you in return. My adoption donation is $125 and it comes with the In Harmony with Nature life-time training option. If you think you are the person to love and spoil me for the rest of my life, please contact Karen inharmonywithnature.adopti
