Silly human, Trix is for kids… and families… and people who love to play and cuddle! Meet Trix, our Adoptable Dog of the Week. This adorable young American Staffordshire Terrier Mix hails from Chestertown, Maryland. He is already neutered, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Trix’s Story:

It’s hard to tell upon first meeting Trix whether it’s his brilliant eyes or his enchanting personality that unfailingly leaves you spellbound. Locked in his gaze, you’re suddenly peering into a golden kaleidoscope, unexpectedly hypnotized. But, after stepping back, you’ll discover Trix for the true renaissance guy he is.

Surrendered to HSKC due to landlord issues, Trix hasn’t let the shelter life slow him down. He continues to enjoy some of his favorite activities, such as exploring new outside places and taking long walks with his favorite people. Trix likes to stay healthy, and swimming is his favorite sport. It doesn’t matter to him where he is. Regardless of whether it’s in a pool or a river, he jumps at the opportunity to splash around in the water!

When he’s not doing the backstroke, Trix likes keeping his eye on things at home. He’s a family man, after all. In his last home, he enjoyed teaching the five children he lived with how to play games. Trix is a natural with kids. For fun, Trix likes romping around with other doggie friends, but cats tend to stress him out.

Trix is housetrained and has mastered basic obedience skills. He is still working on learning to leash-walk gently, but he learns quickly. Are you entranced by Trix? Stop in and meet him at the shelter soon!
