Rufus and Delilah is featuring handsome Halston (A1563223) as the Los Angeles Dog Adoption of the week. The name Halston is often associated with the one of the most beloved American fashion designers. At the East Valley Animal Shelter, Halston (A1563223) is one of the most beloved American Pit Bull mixes, adored by staff and volunteers, alike.
Halston, aka Handsome Halston, is approximately 76 pounds, a distinguished looking fellow with golden colored eyes, a shiny auburn coat, and a face sprinkled with frosting, which may be why the shelter lists him as 8 years young. Halston is in the prime of his life, with a happy disposition, plenty of energy to enjoy hiking and/or leisurely walks, and a sweet and gentle temperament that he bestows on children and adults, as well on other dogs. He may even get along with cats.
Handsome Halston entered the shelter as a stray, but his family, apparently did not find him worthy enough to look for him. Therefore, Halston’s fans are looking for a committed and responsible person/family to adopt Halston into their pack for the remainder of his life. The requirements are a soft pillow or bed to sleep on and relax on indoors; treats to indulge him with; belly rubs; and love, which will come naturally when you meet Halston. In return, Handsome Halston will be a loyal and loving companion.
Pit bulls often get a bad rap when they are usually the most wonderful and loyal dogs when in the right homes. I know this to be true from my experience as a pet parent to my own rescued American Staffordshire mix, Howie, as well as having provided dog walking and pet sitting visits for numerous sweet and loving pit bulls over the last 11 1/2 years. Check out these great articles by Christina Berry of The Lazy Pit Bull on Shattering Pit Bull Myths and Pit Bull Facts: Do You Know The Truth to learn more about how loving and magnificent pit bulls are as a pet.
