Boss is an intelligent boy ready to give his humans tons of affection. This gray and white American Staffordshire Terrier is three years old and weighs 56 pounds.

According to Broward County Animal Care, Boss arrived at the shelter last June and quickly “took charge” of the staff’s hearts. He enjoys getting hugs and pets and is always ready for playtime or a long walk in the park. This pup loves his toys and always gives the volunteers longing looks as if asking if they have a minute to play with him. 

Boss would be a perfect dog for a family with an active lifestyle.
