Melanie is available for adoption at the West Los Angeles Animal Shelter"Melanie" - Play Ball!

ID# A1419583

Let's play ball!  Melanie is ready to go.  Melanie is a beautiful 2 year old, unaltered female, gray and white American Staffordshire Terrier.  She weighs 70 pounds.  She was found as a stray on August 27, 2013 and brought to the West Los Angeles Animal Shelter.

Melanie is an amazing dog.  She is a very sweet and, although strong and excited to get out of her run, she makes good eye contact is eager to please.  One volunteer commented that she was a "joy to take out."  Melanie knows her Sit command.

She was recently introduced to a family with two small children  She was very sweet with them.  She enjoys her belly rubs, but give her a ball and she is in doggie paradise.  Melanie is perfectly happy to play ball by herself or with someone. She returns the ball and lets go of it very easily.  You will laugh your head off as you watch Melanie playing with the large all that she pushes around with her snout.  She'd be great in a soccer game!

Melanie needs a home.  She needs a forever home.  Some very lucky person or family will have a best friend for life in Melanie.  Please help her!  When contacting the shelter for more information about Melanie, be sure to use her ID# A1419583 as a reference.  Photo/video credit:  Debbie Fan, Twitter @blackjackbarks
