Sweet little Nugget is just that! A tiny little Staffy mix that came to us from DACC. She has recovered from Pyometra and is ready for her forever home!
Nugget is a very happy, young girl. She is very active and will need daily mental and physical exercise. Her prey drive is extremely high, so I’m recommending she not go to a home with cats, small dogs, or small children. Nugget is working on all her manners and doing very well. She redirects well, chooses the appropriate toys to play with, is learning to walk on a loose leash, and is beginning obedience. She loves a squeaky tennis ball which will aid in her further development. She settles nicely on the couch for tv and snuggle time and gives the sweetest little kisses. She takes treats gently. She is a bit bossy with the other dogs in my house and likes to have all the toys. She accepts correction well from my Labrador who doesn’t tolerate any crap, but she takes advantage of my Staffy and tends to treat her as prey. She can get over stimulated quickly while playing with the other dogs, but is learning how to play appropriately. Exercise and leadership are key for this young, busy, sweet girl. She will run the household if she is allowed to. She is very quiet, clean, and non-destructive in her crate.
