Adopt-a-Pet: Sundance the Rhodesian ridgeback mix
Sundance (ID# A1081381), a male Rhodesian ridgeback-American Staffordshire terrier mix puppy, is a big favorite with staff and volunteers alike at the South Los Angeles animal shelter. Unfortunately for him, he can't stay there forever -- so he needs a new home, and quickly!
About Sundance: He's about 11 months old and, as such, is full of energy and fun. He loves to play -- in fact, shelter volunteer Andrea Braver explains that she and other volunteers weren't able to get photos of him playing with his favorite tennis balls and rope toys because he was just "too fast for us."
Braver describes Sundance as a "charismatic charmer" who has the goofy personality of the Rhodesian ridgeback breed that shelter staff believe makes up part of his heritage. He gets along with both larger and smaller dogs (Braver recalls one instance in which she observed him lying "in front of a kennel of small dogs, placidly looking at them and trying to kiss them through the bars of their cage while they barked madly at him") and loves people.
For more information: Meet Sundance in person at the South L.A. shelter, 3612 11th Ave., or call (888) 4LAPET1 with his ID number to learn more.
UPDATE 1/11: Sundance has been pulled from the South L.A. shelter by an L.A.-area pet rescue group. Congratulations, Sundance!
