Dog of the Week: Moxie Likes String Cheese and Belly Rubs


By Agrippina Fadel

Moxie is a shy girl with a big personality. This brown and white American Staffordshire Terrier is super sweet and lovable and ready to find her forever family.

According to Broward County Animal Care, Moxie is three-years-old and weighs 49 pounds. She was found as a stray in Miramar and has been at the shelter since September.

Moxie is a great companion and loves to be by people’s side. She has two passions Рbelly rubs and string cheese, and she is not afraid to ask for both. This playful pup is looking for a human to love and shower her with affection.

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