Cinnamon is a sweetie – and that’s why she’s our Adoptable Dog of the Week! This young lady is a 2-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier Mix from East Randolph, VT. She’s already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Cinnamon’s Story:

My friends call me “Cinny.”

Take a look at Cinnamon – just how cute can a little bundle of love be? Two year old Cinny is an adorable little 64 lb. American Staffordshire Terrier Mix who we lovingly think resembles a baby rhino! This little cup of sugar offers boundless amount of hugs and kisses, with soft, sweet eyes that could melt the hardest of hearts. Sadly, our sweet girl found herself surrendered to a high kill NYC ACC shelter due to her owner moving out of out the country. This little doll’s perfect life, living with her best friend, a Maltese named “Mr. Snuffy” and her family, including a 14 year old girl that she adored (and a cat), literally changed overnight. She went from being sung to and sleeping with her owner and Mr. Snuffy to finding herself alone, scared and facing a dreaded euthanasia list in an overcrowded shelter. One look at this angel and we knew we couldn’t let her die. Our job now is to mend her broken heart and help her find a forever family that will love her and help her find her balance again. Prior to being surrendered (and at the shelter) Cinny got along well with dogs of all sizes – scoring a perfect ‘dog to dog’ behavior rating. However, she is now being dog selective in her foster home so meet and greets would be necessary for adopters with other dogs. Cinny is spayed, housetrained, and knows sit, stay, and din-din. She walks well on her leash and is well-behaved when home alone and is micro-chipped and up to date on all vaccines and medical care. Our beautiful girl will require a fish based diet as she is allergic to all other meat. This funny, loving, playful girl has been through a lot and we’re determined to find her the wonderful home she deserves. Can you help put the pieces back together for Cinny?
