Boulder is a shy, but happy pup. He is 6 years old and a pure bred Staffordshire Bull Terrier. He came to us through a friend from California and has always been in a good home. I've recently gone back to work full-time and between my husband and teenage daughter also working, unfortunately there is no one home often enough to give him the care and attention he deserves!
His temperament is reserved at first, but once he gets to know you, he is extremely loyal and active! He is mostly quiet and barks only if someone he doesn't recognize comes into your home. He is aggressive with cats and squirrels and has not been socialized very much with other dogs. When around other dogs he gets very excited and does not know what to do with himself. He has been boarded at a kennel for a family trip we took and did well. Boulder is very patient and given the proper professional training, he would socialize very well. **Last training he received was Beginner Education in May of 2014.**
Boulder is a picky eater so we add steak and chicken to his regular food. He goes NUTS for string cheese so we use that as a treat! He also loves Dentastix and Pupperoni. He enjoys playing tug o' war with his ropes, loves getting his belly rubbed and likes to wade in shallow water at the park. When he's off leash, he listens well, unless, a squirrel or dog comes by. Though he does get out for daily elimination, he really is a homebody. He lays in bed or on the sofa all day, although he does love being in the outdoors.
Boulder gains trust and safety easier with men at first, but again, once he gets to know you, he's very loyal and loving. Boulder has NEVER bitten OR broken skin on another person or animal. He does however, like to play wrestle and nibble with his owner. We feel he would do great with a single man or in a home with no other cats/dogs. Boulder does fine with children, but may be shy at first. He is an exceptionally calm animal.
We would like to see pictures of the environment he will be living in as we want to make sure he goes to a great home. We would love him to go to someone that would be willing to send us updates every now and then of how he is doing. PLEASE be sure you are ready to have a pet that is really more of a member of the family as he loves companionship and to be with you.
Boulder is UTD on all vaccinations. He is chipped, but needs to be registered. Boulder is certified pedigree with the American Kennel Club and though he is pure bred, he is neutered and therefore is not available for breeding.
