If I were to put a “personals” ad in the paper, it would be “big, strong guy looking for big, strong guy (or gal!) to spend quality time with.” My family adopted me as a puppy and was sure they’d have time for my education, but with two small kids growing up, it didn’t happen that way, and my training sessions got left in the dust (of the back yard!). I’m a big galoot of a guy, but I’m all happiness and energy, and that’s why I need someone who is familiar with Staffies and our personality. My people said, “Drake has a lot of potential – he means well, we just don’t have the time to teach him. We are trying to do the right thing by giving him an opportunity for a fulfilled life.” There’s no doubt in my mind that with confident leadership that includes consistent rules and cheerful praise, I’ll be one totally awesome companion!
