Bugatti, American Staffordshire terrier mix

Bugatti is an adorable male American Staffordshire terrier mix currently residing at Streetdog Foundation.

He is already house-trained. He's already neutered, and he has had all his shots.

Bugatti's current caretakers say:

He is still very shy and hesitant when you first meet him so he would do best in a home where he is the only animal. He would also benefit from someone who has fostered or had hard cases before — who can accept his initial hesitance and work with him at his pace to help him open up and blossom.
