Dog of the Week: This American Staffordshire is a Perfect Beach Buddy


By Agrippina Fadel

For those who love watching the sunrise and taking long walks along the beach, Broward County Animal Care has a perfect companion.

Vince is a two-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier that has been at the shelter since October 2021. He is extremely friendly and loves people.

This handsome tan and white pup with perky ears is funny and easy-going and would be a perfect match for a family who likes to spend time outside and enjoy nature. Vince has excellent manners and likes hanging out at restaurants so he can “people watch.” He made it to the beach on a recent outing with a “Lunch Buddy” volunteer and loved it.
