Kentucky the American Staffordshire Terrier Mix
Feb 23, 2021

Owner: Christen Cena

Location: Sonoma, Calif.

Dog Name: Kentucky

Age: 6

Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier mix

In a Word: Good-natured

Job Title: Professional napper. He can be found lounging on every piece of furniture we own. Nothing is off limits to him.

Star Quality: Great smile and kind eyes.

Favorite Treat: His daily dental bone after his morning walk. He'll bark at us if we forget!

Obsession: Definitely chasing squirrels and cats! He'll never forget a spot where he's seen a cat. He's always on the lookout.

Favorite Getaway: Anywhere we are, which is typically at all the dog-friendly wineries in Napa and Sonoma.

Forgivable Flaw: Snoring! It can be very loud and distracting when you're trying to watch a movie or take a phone call.

Dog's Background: We are forever grateful to Rocket Dog rescue in San Francisco, Calif. He was the "dog of the week" on their website in 2016 and when we went to go meet him we knew he was our guy. He was rescued from a kill shelter on what was suppose to be "his last day." He brings so much joy and love into our life and I hope his story will inspire others to consider adopting rescue dogs.
