Rambo is a male American Staffordshire terrier and is coloured chocolate and white. He’s about two years old and is considered a large dog.
He’s also an active dog, full of love, joy and life. He needs a breed-experienced family who will provide and instill boundaries, as he’s had little training or discipline in the past.
If there are children in the family they should be confident, older (10 plus) and steady on their feet. Rambo would be happy with another dog to play with – preferably one smaller than he. Another dog would need enough energy to complement his rough-and-tumble play style.
As Pet of the Week, Rambo’s adoption fee is only $150 (it’s usually $359) and this all-inclusive fee covers microchipping, desexing, vaccination, flea and worm treatments and lifetime registration in NSW.
If you would like to adopt him ask yourself the following questions: Can I handle a pup or would a mature dog be better? What size of dog is best for me? Should the dog have endless energy or be a couch potato to watch TV with? Is my home noisy or is it a quiet place? What breeds and behaviours am I best equipped for? And just how secure is my yard?
