About Doc

Adoption Fee: $200

Doc is a 2 year old American Staffordshire terrier mix.  He is around 40 lbs and so very sweet.  This sensitive boy needs a very patient person to transfer his loyalty to.  Recent events have proven stressful for this loving guy, and while his foster family is trying their best to help him, an adopter with experience with separation anxiety would be wonderful to help him transition.
Doc loves to be with his people- at home, on walks, on car rides.  His perfect home will have someone able to spend as much time with him as possible, and to dedicate time to work on his training.  Doc knows how to sit, lay down, and is still working on take it and leave it.  He is passionate about food and loves to eat.  He is very treat motivated!
Doc has a foster sister who he enjoys playing with, but he would do fine as the center of someone’s attention too. He is kid friendly however he’d be best in a home without kids due to his strength.  Doc has not been tested with cats.
For more info or to adopt Doc apply at    His adoption fee is $200.

Hi! My name is Billy but my foster mom calls me Silly Billy! She tells me I’m a very special pup because although I may have had a rough start to life, I still love with all my heart. I started out way down in Louisiana. When the nice people from the shelter saved me from living all my whole life on the end of a chain, I was so skinny and scared! They took really good care of me until Hearts of Hope Dog Rescue in Michigan took over, and I began a brand new life up here in the north. I feel and look so much better now! All I need is my very own forever home. I do have some requirements for my family however. I’m pretty picky about the dogs I like, so I probably should be an only dog. I love cats way too much, and play too rough, so it's not a good idea for me to be around them. I need a fenced in yard for my own safety and the safety of my future family. I’d never want my family hurt by chasing me into traffic or something else just as scary. My people are my whole world! I’m also still a puppy; or at least I think I am. I am only about a year old and really need my future family to be 100% committed to doing training classes with me. I’m really smart and pick things up fast so I’d love learning new things with them. I've learned so much already with my foster folks! I am neutered, microchipped and up to date on my vaccines. I am so ready to go home. My adoption fee is only $200. show less
