Livingston County Animal Shelter Adoption of the Week: Kaden

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Hi, I’m Kaden. They say that I am the most charming eligible bachelor in Livingston County so let me tell you about myself.

Am I not an absolute hunk? I am a black-and-white, 2-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier mix. I’m super smart and a quick learner of all sorts of commands. I am very curious and love adventurous walks. I am house-trained and easily go in and out of my crate. I will show no aggression if you need to take a toy or bone from my mouth – I don’t mind at all.

People are my thing! I am very loving and patient, but due to my size and strength, I would do better living without any other dogs, cats, small children, or elderly adults. My ideal home would have a fenced-in yard where I can get my zoomies out. And oh my goodness – belly and butt rubs are just the best!

Ok, I’m not perfect, but who is? I am young and like to play hard, jumping and mouthing at arms and feet. I have a lot of energy and when I get tired without getting a nap in, I can get a little mischievous. For example, I may or may not have done a close-up inspection of my foster family’s bathroom garbage. Some good exercise and a nap in my crate seem to do the trick though.

I would love a regular routine out of this shelter and some more training would be great. I just want a family of my own to love who will be patient with me, teach me, and show me love in return. I am ready to live my best life!

Kaden is neutered, microchipped, and up to date on medical.
