Furry Friends, Forever Homes

This week, we introduce you to three-year-old Papalo.


Papalo is an American Staffordshire Terrier who currently is in foster care through A Rotta Love Plus. This sweet guy possesses a loyal, piglet-like demeanor, and one of his favorite things to do is crawl along the floor.

He also enjoys to roughhouse ever-so-gently, park himself in front of the heat register (when it’s cold outside), go for a walk (he’s pretty good on a leash) and snuggle with his people. In fact, he always likes to be around his humans.


Papalo does like to keep himself busy, but he’s not high maintenance at all. Rather, he is super gentle and mellow, and he would be comfortable with people of any age group. He currently lives with adults, but he would do very with kids, too.

He loves his crate and he is house-broken. He has learned a few commands like “sit,” and he knows to wait for his meals until he’s told. He loves to learn, and is quite a trainable fella.


Papalo is the total package: lovable, loving and adorable (that face)! Now, he’s waiting for his forever family to find him.

If you know someone who’s looking to add a four-legged friend to the mix, please keep Papalo in mind. For more information and to arrange a time to meet him, please contact A Rotta Love Plus.

The individuals who work for the 18 organizations that Pause 4 Paws financially supports are tireless in their efforts to rescue animals by providing medical care and finding forever homes for dogs and cats in need.
