CRONUS was an owner surrender to the local animal control who turned him over to the rescue. GaDaH had him neutered, vaccinated, de-wormed and micro-chipped. We had him IDEXX 4DX tested for heartworm and tick disease and he tested negative for all. He was current on his rabies. Cronus has a date of birth of 10 May 2014 and weighs 48 pounds. He is an American Staffordshire Terrier / Pit Bull.
CRONUS was surrendered because his family could no longer care for him. He is upset and confused, but settling in ok. He is extremely friendly and loving and everyone that has met him has instantly fallen in love of him, the staff at the vets were all wanting to take him home. He is located in the kennel building and does go outside in the run to do his business and to see what is going on outside, but when it isn't play time he settles down and relaxes enjoying chewing on his hoof. Initially he was not interested in the other dogs and wanted to be left alone, which is very understandable considering the heartache and confusion he must be feeling. Since he has become more settled he does bark at them and so I would suggest he be an only dog until he is settled in a home environment and his true personality can come out.
When out having playtime Cronus is a really happy boy, he will run and play and then come back to check in before running off to explore a bit more. He is so sweet and loving, he loves to lean on you and get his head scratched or his belly rubbed. He wags his tail and goes to the gate to greet people when they go over to the kennels, he truly is just pure-sweetness.
Cronus needs an active family and one that will keep his mind stimulated and challenged. Lots of hikes and adventures, training tricks, or agility, dock diving or other fun, active, stimulating activities would be perfect for this girl. He is great with humans and although I have not seen him with children, his demeanor and personality I have no doubt that he would be great with them and I am sure they could keep each other entertained for many hours. All the staff at the vets fell totally in love with him.
