Hi Guys! My name is Trinity, and I am one sweet bully pup. I’m about 2.5 years old, I weigh 50 pounds, and I am a Staffordshire bull terrier/mastiff mix. I have a big, infectious smile that lights up when I see you, and I have captured the hearts of all my Mutts Matter friends. My foster mom says I’m one of the sweetest dogs she has ever met, and she’s met a lot.
Not only do I have a winning personality, but I have a very even temperament and can roll with the punches. I would fit well in most situations; I’d be great with an active single owner or laid-back couple, and I’d be a perfect family dog, too. I’m good with kids and was raised in a family with kids of all ages, from infants to teens.
Unfortunately, someone in my family developed allergies, and I ended up being surrendered to a local Maryland shelter. It hurt my feelings to be abandoned, but in retrospect, I don’t think they paid me a lot of attention. I’m confident there’s a better life waiting for me, and a family who will love and cherish me for the awesome dog that I am.
The good news is that I lucked out, and Mutts Matter hooked me up with a great foster home. Not only does my foster mom take excellent care of me, she owns a dog day care and boarding business, so there are always lots of cool dogs for me to play and socialize with. It’s awesome!
I love to hang out and interact with other dogs, and even have a few boyfriends that I’m particularly fond of... I smother them with kisses all the time, but sometimes they just ignore me. I don’t get it. You guys can see that I’m gorgeous, so I guess maybe they have girlfriends back home?
My foster mom describes me as a sensitive soul. I’m eager to please and respond quickly to discipline, but I also shy away from loud noises and raised voices, which may stem from my experiences growing up. I will benefit from positive reinforcement and training, to help build my confidence and trust.
I’m such a good-natured dog; I love people and other dogs, and have zero aggression. I know how to share, and you can easily take toys, bones or food away from me. I’m already potty-trained, walk well on a leash, and know some basic commands, like “sit” and “stay.” I’m pretty good with recall too, and will come when you call me—unless the glorious smells of nature distract me, and then I need a little extra encouragement. Once I’m in my new home and have someone to work with me, I’ll be an excellent student.
What it comes down to is that I’m just a cool, lovable dog. I’m playful, but also laid back and a great snuggler. My foster mom laughs when I leap in the air to give her kisses. I know I’m not really supposed to jump, but I just want to share my love! Any family lucky enough to adopt me will have a loving and loyal companion for life.
