Arrival Story: Radar was adopted after Hurricane Ivan (2004) by a relative. He lived alone with my relative, and never met any other dogs. He had a privacy fence, se he never even saw other dogs, except at the vet. She had him for 2 yrs and I inherited him, 23Jan2006. When I got him, he was a monster, and I disliked him...when I was trying to get rid of him, I looked online for information on his breed, and things began to fall into place as I learned his traits. He asked for a walk one night, and did marvelously. Two days later, another walk, and he obediently dropped a chicken bone on command. He won my respect, and then my heart. No I ask, How could I have ever parted with this lovable dog, my little monster??
Bio: Radar is 47-50 pounds, and leggie for a Staffie. American Staffordshires are made up of the following breeds, which are all visible on Radar: Terrier, Bulldog, Pointer and Dalmation. Old bad habits: Stealing food from people. Jumping on the couch. Jumping on me when I arrive home (now he knows to lay down). Digging all the time in the yard (now, it's very rare). Running away...No more running, he's home.
