Burble is a polar bear with a blue nose, member of the Danger Rangers. He is the heart and soul, powerhouse, and practical joker of the group. Burble is the Recreational Safety Ranger.
How in the world was such an outstanding dog found as a stray, brought to the pound and never claimed? It doesn't make any sense. Unfortunately, that's exactly what happened to this remarkable breed specimen. The staff at the city shelter couldn't believe it and contacted us right way. We need to make sure this Casanova finds a better family this time. One who will never give him up. He is so lucky he didn't fall in the wrong hands while running the streets.

Big-boned, blue and white boy. Burble has a rather typical American Staffordshire appearance. He looks like a show-dog. Am Staff's are often a little bigger than APBT's and many of them are gorgeous looking as conformation and good disposition are the most desired traits in the gene pool. We dont know his breeding background for sure, but look-wise and personalty-wise, he fits the standard of a well-bred AST.
Burble is being a trouper at MPR shelter. Despite being found as a stray, we dont think Burble had a terrible life prior to losing his home. We dont know why he ended up homeless but we believe he was someone's companion at one point, due to how clean, healthy and in good shape he was when found. Shelter life is always a little harder on the dogs that left behind a good home. But Burble is not the type to sweat the small stuff.
Burble is an outstanding guest in our program. Well-behaved in his kennel, stoic, quiet and non destructible. He patiently awaits for his turn to be out with a volunteer and keeps his kennel clean.
Confident, smart and good-natured. This dog is full of wonderful characteristics. Someone worked with him before because he knew a few tricks already and loves to show off his talent.
Burble is laid-back but has an enthusiastic and playful personality. He loves to play with toys and enjoys splashing in a doggy-pool. We bet he'd be a great swimmer.
Burble is confident, smart and poised.
Behavior with people:
Very friendly, though he can be somewhat aloof with strangers in the first few minutes of a meeting. This is not an uncommon trait with AmStaffs. They are a little more reserved than APBT's and not as engaging right off the bat. Burble has never shown any signs of aggression towards people but he likes to know who he's dealing with before showering someone with love. He would probably become very attached to his loved-ones and get his cues from them when meeting new people. He comes across as a very loyal companion.
Behavior with children:
Unknown. As mentioned above, he could have a bit of a guard side to him. This means that he might be protective of "his" kids and will require responsible ownership. A home with children is definitly an option for him, as he seems to have the right temperament to be a family dog, but parents will need to be diligent when friends visit.
Behavior with other dogs:
Borderline. Introductions to other pets were attempted while Burble was at the city pound and unsuccessful. He's not a "love-at-first-sight" type of guy when it comes to other dogs. He needs time to decompress and get to know other pets via a structured "crate/rotate" routine.
We wont rule out a home with a compatible female if owners are breed-savvy and willing to do a very slow introduction but we think Burble would be a champ as an only pet.
Behavior with other animals:
Burble already knew a few commands when he came to us and is very smart. He's also well behaved and has great house manners. No trouble at all.
Where do we start? This dog is a great breed ambassador. He's totally handsome, strong, courageous and very loyal. He is super well-behaved, protective, smart and knows basic commands. What more could you ask for?
