Dog of the Week: Curtis is a Happy Dog With a Big Smile

By Agrippina Fadel

Curtis meets every person at the shelter with a wagging tail and a big smile, but he is yet to find his forever family.

According to Broward County Animal Care, this brindle and white American Staffordshire Terrier mix is about two years and eight months old and weighs 61 pounds. He’s been at the shelter for about nine months.

Curtis is a happy dog full of life, enjoys running around and playing fetch, and does well on a leash. He loves the belly rubs and is very affectionate.

This pup is very smart, knows his commands, sits, and patiently waits for treats. Curtis is a good listener and will be a perfect pet for a family with an active lifestyle and a lot of love to give.

Like many other large dogs at the Broward Animal Care and Adoption Center, Curtis needs a kennel break. The shelter is running 20 dogs over capacity and needs the public to come out and adopt or foster pets.
