American Staffordshire Terrier Mixed Breed

This past year has been ruff on Roman. He was picked up by local animal control and during his stay, he quickly became a staff favorite. When no one came to claim him, the staff contacted New Leash hoping we could help. Who could say no to that beautiful smile?

When Roman first came to his foster home he was very shy and scared.
The other dogs were intimidating and he wasn't sure what to think of his foster mom. However, he immediately took to his new foster dad, showering him with kisses. It took about a week before Roman warmed up to the rest of the household.
Roman doesn't seem to handle change easily. He can be a little shy and scared, but with patience and a little space, his goofy personality comes out.
He is a little over one year, housetrained, and can be particular with certain people and dogs at first. He has been around older kids, but not really young ones. He has lots of energy and loves running zombies in the yard. He also loves to playing chase, tug-of-war and wrestling with other dogs. He isn't much of a barker but will sing when he wants your attention. He does great being left out when his fosters are gone which is great because he is not into being crated. His foster family's favorite thing about Roman is his lavish displays of joy when they come home.
This boy would make a great addition to a family!

Adoption fee is $300.00 (no checks)

Foster to contact: Ben & Tracy - or

Roman will not be at an adoption event so contact his foster to learn more!

Our fosters do the best they can to provide all information about the animal's background and temperament while in foster care in their home. An adopters routine and home environment is likely going to be different than that in their foster home.

Sometimes there is more that comes out about a dog's personality once they have been able to settle in a home and truly become comfortable. There are great articles out there written about the different stages a pet goes through after adoption, discussing transitions that happen at 3 days, 3 weeks, and 3 months. We highly recommend reading about this - it will help you understand the transition your new pet goes through.
