Make This Puppy Lucky: Lumiere the American Staffordshire Terrier

This young Staffy wants a forever home with an active family.

Looking for a bright and shiny pup to light up your life? Look no further than Lumiere, a happy, playful, and uber-smart Staffy looking for a loving — and active — forever family. Whoever adopts this gorgeous boy had better be prepared for a lifetime of unconditional love!

Name: Lumiere.

Age and sex: 2-year-old male.

Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier.

Size and weight: Medium and 55 pounds.

Coat: Short, white and blue.

Location: Cumberland County SPCA & South Jersey Regional Animal Shelter in New Jersey.

Activity level: Medium-high.

Likes: Long walks, food, toys, treats, bones, and playing with his doggie foster siblings.

Dislikes: Cats.

Training: Lumiere is house and crate trained, and understands basic commands. Since he’s so smart, food-motivated, and listens well, Lumiere will likely excel in obedience training classes.

Yard requirements: Although Lumiere is an active boy who would love a yard to run and play in, it’s not required as long as he receives lots of regular walks and exercise.

Kids: Lumiere is best suited for older children, as he can get overexcited and mouthy during playtime.

Dogs and cats: Loves dogs, but is not good with cats.

Health issues: None.

His story: Lumiere was found as a stray and was never claimed by his original owner.

His ideal forever home: Lumiere would be the perfect fit for a young, active family or couple who would enjoy an exercise buddy they can take on fun adventures.
