Orion

American Staffordshire Terrier

 
Large  |  Male

Hankamer, TX

 

Orion is fully trained as a world class ballerina! Growing up on the mean streets, but not being mean, led Orion to the shelter of a ballet studio…where he picked up the trade and quickly found he was a natural. Traveling from show to show has taken him around the world and he has seen it all…but had to retire early due to a serious eyelid injury (never mention The Madagascar Incident around him!!). Upon retiring, Orion returned to his roots in Fifth Ward, where he quickly discovered was not the right place for a ballerina and his pink tutus!! Needless to say, Orion has had a tough retirement. We found him hiding under a vacant house with bite wounds from head to toe. He was swollen, infected, battered & bruised, but could still pirouette with the best of them!! Probably due to his days in the limelight, Orion loves attention and will do whatever you need him to do as long as he can be by your side. Whether keeping your feet warm while you read a good book or walking with you on an evening stroll through the neighborhood, Orion is ready & willing. Orion is a playful “kid” who aims to please. He loves all people and most dogs but, due to his rough past, needs to be in a home with no other dominant males. Orion will not start a conflict but he also will not always back down from one. He’s a lover (and a ballerina), not a fighter! Please consider making Orion a part of your family…he will make you smile day after day! Click on the link to see a news report about Orion back in 2012 after he was healing from his rescue. Since the report he has fully healed and is no longer a skinny boy. He is such a beauty! http://www.examiner.com/article/orion-a-forgotten-dog-of-the-5th-ward but hard headed
