Meet Drake, formerly known as Draco, was found as a stray. The shelter staff reached out to his owner, but she declined to reclaim him. Drake was at the shelter for months, and although the shelter staff did everything to help him acclimate, he was miserable. Thankfully, through the power of networking and social media, he was taken in by an amazing rescue, One By One Rescue Project, who found a fabulous foster home for him with Jinnee and Nick. Drake is now available for adoption!

Drake is a 2-year-old Staffy boy who is around 65 lbs. He has a beautiful and unique gray brindle coat and is stunningly handsome. He is up to date on vaccines and is neutered. Drake is house-trained and learning to love his crate. Drake does fine being left alone in the home but prefers being with people. Drake loves toys! He’s great with them, too. He doesn’t guard them or have any issues sharing. Drake loves water and takes every opportunity to go for a swim. Drake can sit, shake, and lie down when asked. He is also quite a skilled sprinter. He has learned to stay out of the kitchen and off furniture.

Drake is a big goofball and a giant ham, his tongue always hanging out the side of his mouth. He is happy all the time and really enjoys being with his people, and is always up for a challenge. He carries his big soft blanket up and down the stairs like a human child, and often likes to teethe on it to self-soothe. While a rough-and-tumble boy, he is super sweet and really wants to learn and please his people. He is an all-around good boy and would make a very fun and loving addition to an active family.

Drake would do best as the only pet in the home, with an experienced and active dog owner and older kids/teens. His ideal family would have time to exercise him daily. Drake needs to be an inside dog and part of a family who has adequate time to spend with him.
