Just like his name, Blue is a 6-year-old blue/grey American Staffordshire terrier. Though some people have given his breed a bad reputation, that’s not like him at all. He’s sweet, friendly and affectionate. He loves a good game of tug and enjoys chew toys. He would prefer a fenced yard so he can run and play. He doesn’t care for other dogs or cats, though. He can be adopted at A Second Chance Animal Shelter. Call (803) 473-7505 for more information, or visit www.asecondchanceanimalshelter.com.
