Dog of the Week: Sweet American Staffordshire Terrier Loves Dining Out


By Agrippina Fadel

Take French Toast out for some french toast. She will pup-preciate it! The sweet and gentle four-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier truly lives up to her name.

According to Broward County Animal Care, French Toast is a staff favorite. She often goes on Lunch Buddy dates with volunteers and even went mildly viral on the Let’s Eat, South Florida Facebook group – twice – with posts about the local restaurants where the pup dined with her human pal.

French Toast walks great on a leash never pulls or barks. She is a social butterfly and does exceptionally well in public, even in busy, crowded places. This adventurous pup would make an excellent companion – or a brunch partner.

French Toast enjoys car rides and loves hugs. She is extremely friendly and loves meeting new people, particularly if they have a tasty snack to share.
