My story

My name is JENNA & I'm a gorgeous 4 yr F Red/White American Staffordshire/Boxer X. I'm 65 lbs of PURE SOUTHERN TOM-BELLE. I was rescued from a high kill shelter in Texas having been surrendered for NO GOOD REASON. I'm a sweet girl but I'm a little wary of new people/strangers and can be a bit snarky if you come on too strong... so you gotta go slow with me and let me warm up to you... if you come with a cheeseburger I'm your best friend. I had a rough life in TX and was left out in the yard alot and some folks weren't so nice to me down there.. but once I get to know you, I'm right by your side and a BIG LOVING CUDDLEBUG. I love to snuggle on the couch right next to you while you're watching TV. I know basic commands but am always up to learn more because I'm a smart girl and a quick learner. I love having a job, whether it’s working on new tricks or playing with toys and solving puzzles. I'm an expert fetcher and would love to fetch to my hearts content. I'm still getting used to walking on a leash because I was never walked when I was in TX so need some more leash training. I'm very well behaved in the home, I don't jump up on furniture without being invited up, don't beg or whine for food or go after human food, and am good at keeping myself entertained and don't have separation anxiety. I am fully house trained and crate trained (and will often go there for naps and is happy to spend the night there as well).

I'm ok with other dogs in passing but if they get to close too fast I may snap at them. I don't like to share my humans so I should be an ONLY DOG and I've never lived with a cat but I did like to chase them in the yard in TX so NO CATS. Also since I'm not immediately fond of strangers, it's best if I were in an ADULT ONLY home.

I would do best in a QUIET HOME with not alot of distractions.. city life in my foster home has been interesting but I'm a southern girl at heart, so a home in the suburbs would be best for me. I'm looking for someone or a couple that will take the time to build a relationship with me and I will reward them with ULTIMATE LOVE AND LOYALTY. I'm a sweet girl with that tough Texas spirit and ready to rock with you.
