Adopt Me: Jimmy is the perfect hiking partner

He will require some additional obedience training

CityNews Halifax, in partnership with the Dartmouth SPCA, brings you a regular feature highlighting a special pet that is in need of adoption.


Male / American Staffordshire Terrier mix (29kg)
Approximately 1.5 years old
Suitable for children 16+
No apartments
Only pet home

This young handsome lad has a passion for playing; especially with soft toys that squeak! He is in excellent shape which makes him an ideal candidate for hikes, beach combing and endless adventures.

Jimmy is currently working on some manners and will require additional obedience training to better set him up for success in everyday life activities. He is motivated by food and toys so this will greatly help with training! Jimmy currently knows ‘sit', both ‘paws', and once he has gotten over the excitement walks well on leash.

Jimmy can be a bit reserved at first - assessing situations prior to engaging and is going to require a little patience and reassurance but once comfortable he is sure to show you his bubbly personality.

Jimmy available for adoption from the Dartmouth SPCA. Please contact us at 468-7877 Option 6 for more information or at

You can drop by the shelter anytime during our business hours to meet adoptable animals. We do not accept online applications at this time.
