  • Animal ID#: A788110
  • Dog Name: Eli
  • Dog Sex: Male
  • Approximate Age: 2 years
  • Animal ID#: A788110
  • Dog Name: Eli
  • Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier
  • Dog Sex: Male
  • Approximate Age: 2 years
  • A little little about me: Eli came into the shelter terrified and shut down. In foster care, with lots of positive reinforcement and a couple of confident playful female dogs, he has really come out of his shell. Eli has the heart of a sweet, eager-to-please Playful and a bit mischievous puppy inside a cautious exterior. His ideal forever family will understand that his shyness is not about them but rather about his lack of proper socialization as a young dog, and will help him continue to grow into a balanced happy dog.
  • Other Dogs: VERY playful: lots of wrestling, toy tugging, and chasing. Note: he was not fond of male dogs before he was neutered. He is in foster care with female dogs only.
  • Easy to walk, maintains loose leash. Loves walks, but can be startled occasionally and needs to always wear a martingale collar.
  • Snuggle/lover rating: Is a-ok hanging out nearby, loves pets once he knows you.
  • Crate trained, housebroken, likes play time with other dogs and opportunities to chew on toys often.
  • Type of Learner: I want to please but would like to go slow
  • Energy Level: Medium energy blend, needs some play prior to relaxation
  • I can be shy and timid when meeting new people and prefer to take things slowly
  • Motivation: Needs encouragement and sometimes takes treats
  • Known Skills: Watch Me, Leave It, Wanna Go Outside? In your crate, “Wait” at a door to continue
  • Additional Info: Eli will do best in a home with a playful confident female dog to continue to help him learn about all of the wonderful things that come with living with people.
