Hi, my name is Paloma!
Adult Large Female
American Staffordshire Terrier / Labrador Retriever / Mixed
Introducing Paloma! This gorgeous velveteen beauty is a young Staffordshire/Lab mix, with a sweet temperament, complimentary of both breeds! Paloma is a lovable big fur ball with the cutest heart shaped head!
Her foster family reports she gets along well with the other dogs in the house, is learning her leash walking, basic commands, and how to hang in her kennel patiently. She enjoys occasional play time with her fur siblings, but mostly likes to lounge.
Paloma is sometimes fondly referred to as, "couch potato" due to her laid back demeanor. What makes this low level activity even better for her, is if she is able to touch or snuggle with her owner! She very much enjoys human interaction, kisses, hugs, and affection. Playtime can consist of her going on an occasional walk, romping with other dogs, or just chewing on her Nylabones.
Be prepared to have her greet you when you come home from work with jiggles, tail wagging and a flurry of excitement! This girl loves to love! Expect to get back what you put into her, 200%! She could easily be an only dog of a household, or fit in with other dogs. Her foster notes that she is not, however, a fan of cats.
Paloma is ready to find her new home and reap the rewards of TLC, warmth and care. She will no doubt cherish whomever is ready to open their home and heart to her. Apply to adopt Paloma today!
Paloma is available for pre-adoption only at this time, as she is heartworm positive. Heartworm disease is a non-contagious and treatable condition in dogs, but is fatal if left untreated.
