Dog of the Week: Subway Knows Tricks, Will Perform for Treats


By Agrippina Fadel

It is unknown if Subway was named after the underground trains or the famous sandwich chain. Still, coincidentally, the six-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier loves to venture out with volunteers and appreciates a tasty snack.

According to Broward County Animal Care, Subway is housebroken and well-mannered. The pup arrived at the agency in October and has already made many friends.

Subway is very smart and knows how to sit, shake paws, lie down, and roll over, particularly if he can get a treat and a belly rub as a reward. He is excellent on the leash and is a true social butterfly as he loves to interact with everyone in a friendly manner. Subway is ready to show all his tricks to his very own forever family.
