Clarissa is available for adoption at the West Los Angeles Animal ShelterHappiness is "Clarissa"


Do you want to laugh?  Do you want to be entertained?  If the answer is "yes," then take a look at Clarissa.  Clarissa is a 1 1/2 year old, female, blue and white American Staffordshire Terrier.  She weighs 47 pounds.  Clarissa was found as a stray on August 26, 2013, and brought to the West Los Angeles Animal Shelter where she eagerly waits for her "forever" home.

Clarissa is a very loving dog who enjoys human companionship.  She is a bundle of energy in the play yard where she loves, loves, loves to run around with a toy in her mouth.  She may show guarding towards her toys when around another dog but, with her handler, she released the ball.  She would benefit from basic training, but she is a smart dog and already knows her Sit command.

Clarissa has been introduced to several other dogs.  She was a little submissive initially, but did play with Macho and was in the yard with Jersey and Cody without any problems.

Clarissa is a happy, playful dog who needs her own home and her own person to love her forever.  Please help Clarissa!  When contacting the shelter for more information about Clarissa, be sure to use her ID# A1419317 as a reference.  Photo/video credit:  Debbie Fan, Twitter @blackjackbarks
