Sarafina, our Adoptable Dog of the Week, can turn the world on with her smile. A friendly girl who loves everyone she meets, this 1-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier is waiting for her fur-ever family in Albuquerque, New Mexico. She is already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Sarafina’s Tale:

Hi there, my name’s Sarafina but all my friends call me “Sarie” and you should too, ’cause everyone is my friend! I’m a 1-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier, and so well behaved that I’m learning quickly to become the consummate lady (a title I crave)!

I enjoy frolicking with my human and canine friends outdoors though I behave with proper decorum and perfect manners at all times… one must set a good example for their breed, you know. I consider getting dirty or misbehaving as beneath my character, keeping myself clean and correct in every setting. If you like walks or hiking then I’m your girl, as exercise is something I believe in to maintain my perfect figure!

I enjoy all my friends at our multi-dog indoor foster home and am gracious to everyone I meet. Typical of the Amstaff breeding, I have a stable, even temperament, am calm, intelligent, easy to train, affectionate, gentle and extremely well behaved. I’m a sweet girl who has lived in an indoor home my entire life so I’m super well socialized, housebroken, crate trained and even sit (automatically, thank you) for treats. I love to play with toys, other dogs, human children and especially enjoy car rides!

I have a heart of gold, and I’m fabulous with children because I love humans of all sizes. I learn new lessons fast and love to please, especially in response to an experienced, calm, assertive pack leader that I respect. My foster Mom says I’m the perfect breed ambassador, absolutely amazing to work with and an exceptional companion with a personality as lovely as my looks – how nice of her to notice my pawstive attributes!
