Update 5/22/14: RESCUED by Southern Nevada Bully Breed Rescue!!!
For two months and counting, Samson, an American Staffordshire terrier, has been waiting to be noticed.
The dog, still just a pup at 18-months of age, has been housed at the Los Angeles County Animal Care and Control facility in Baldwin Park, Calif., since he was picked up as a stray on March 17.
Samson is young, healthy, friendly and he aced his temperament test - but after all of this time, nobody has expressed an interest in providing him with a home. The following information was shared about this handsome boy:
Samson is a comical 18-month-old male black-and-white American Staffordshire Bull Terrier mix who was found in West Covina on March 17th and brought to the Baldwin Park Animal Care Center. Weighing approximately 50 lbs, Samson is an active boy with puppy energy who loves to play. But he does get tuckered out eventually, at which point he couldn't be sweeter, more loving, or tail waggy—sitting on your lap and rolling onto his back for belly rubs! He gets along with other dogs when properly introduced. Not only is Samson funny and cuddly, he is smart and well-behaved; he aced his shelter-administered temperament test! Samson will make a magnificent indoor pet for any individual or family with older children living in a single-family home.
Two months is a long time to be impounded...two months is a long time to survive inside of a busy animal control. Please take a moment to network Samson's information - his perfect home is out there somewhere.
