Parker is a real charmer and loves to go out. This black, brown, and white American Staffordshire Terrier and Harrier mix is well-behaved on car rides, restaurants, and in public.

According to Broward County Animal Care, Parker is three-year-old and weighs 54 pounds. He came to the shelter as a stray in April. The staff says it is impossible not to fall in love with his puppy dog eyes.

Parker loves being outdoors, rolling in the grass, and sniffing things. He is sweet and gentle, obeys all commands, and enjoys getting pets, belly rubs, and returning the love with a slobbery kiss. He would be a perfect pet for an active family.
