Gender: male
Altered: yes
Coat: medium

Color(s): brown/white, streak of black on tail

Hi, I'm Jackson, a sweet American Staffordshire Terrier X who was rescued from an LA shelter by someone out-of-state who wanted to give me a chance at finding my forever home.

I was evaluated by a trainer who said I was stressed but calm. Who wouldn't be stressed not knowing when your last day might be.

I accepted being touched all over my body including my paws, tail and mouth. I know sit, shake and take treats gently. I did not exhibit any food aggression when tested with chicken.

The trainer took me for a 30 minute walk and I pulled at first but listened to instructions about not pulling. I walked well after that. I did not react to strangers or other dogs we encountered on our walk. I showed more interest in people. This has since changed while I was in a foster home. I need to be the only dog in the home. I jumped in the trainer's car when given water after our walk. I didn't want to get out, I thought I was going home.

I've been lucky to be able to get time away from the kennel. I was quick to pick up potty training and I was a true gentleman when left alone in the home.

I'm grateful and happy to be in a safe place where I'll be taken care of and given lots of love and attention. I hope the next car I jump into will take me to my forever home.

Someone who hasn't even met me in person was willing to give me a chance, won't you give me a chance too? Stop by and meet me. I'll be waiting.

*Thank you to Jill for sponsoring this wonderful dog at the Burnice Kraemer Sanctuary and giving him the chance for a better life.
