American Staffordshire Terrier

Medium  |  Male

Staten Island, NY


RIZZO is a BEAUTIFUL 3y M Brown Amstaff who is 36lbs of PURE SWEET MILK CHOCOLATE. Poor Rizzo was surrendered by his owner because of "No Time" and unfortunately the owner didn't even have time to feed him because he is extremely skinny and underweight with all his bones showing... but sweet Rizzo has no hard feelings towards anyone.... He just LOVES EVERYONE and once he puts on weight he will be A SUPERMODEL
Rizzo was a little skittish at when he first came into the shelter but he quickly warmed up to everyone and has become a "volunteer favorite" Because he was soo nice and balanced the behaviorists chose him to be used as the "helper dog" in evaluating other dogs on their dog 2 dog reaction. He is FRIENDLY TO ALL DOGS BIG &SMALL
Rizzo does pull a bit on the leash and this is because he was never leash trained. In fact his nails are soo long and this indicates his owner(s) probably never walked him. In fact we found out that Rizzo spent most of his day tied up in the house. which is really sad. Rizzo appears to be housebroken as his kennel is clean as a whistle and he does his business as soon as he is outside. Rizzo loves to play in the backyard and he is SO AFFECTIONATE as he loves to come on the lap and kisses, kisses and kisses. Rizzo is good w/ other dogs and when he sees another dog, he just wants to play!!. Rizzo is a not a good dog, he is a GREAT DOG- An Ambassador for his Breed and will make a WONDERFUL FAMILY DOG & LOYAL COMPANION - Come Meet/Adopt him Today!
