BUBBA is a 6-year-old Staffie with a beautifully unique white and merle coat. BUBBA weighs around 60 pounds and is already a pro at basic commands like sit and off. This big boy is responsive to his name and is familiar with living in a home setting, and the folks at ITV say he's super gentle when it comes to taking treats, although catching them is still a skill he's working on!

ITV tells us that BUBBA would do best in an environment where he can be the only dog in the household.

Here's the best thing we can say about BUBBA, his adoption fee is sponsored - that means you can take this guy home for FREE!

All of the animals at ITV are examined by a veterinarian, given age-appropriate vaccinations, dewormed, microchipped, spayed or neutered, and FIV/FeLV-tested.

If our pet of the week isn’t the right fit for your home, please visit It Takes a Village to see the other rescues that need to get fostered and adopted. And don't forget about their RENT A DOG Program. A quick fill form and copy of your photo ID will allow you time out with one of ITV's vetted shelter dogs. These day dates are great for the rescues - it gets them some exercise and new information to help us get them adopted. It’s been a big hit- so don’t miss out!
