Cristina, a white and black American Staffordshire Terrier, loves spending time at the beach or walking around the park.

According to Broward County Animal Care, Christina is almost three years old and weighs 42 pounds. She spent over four months in the kennels and started feeling anxious, so the shelter found a foster family to take her in for a while. However, this pup still needs a forever home.

Christina has the most beautiful smile and is a very attentive and gentle dog. She hopes her outdoors-loving and adventurous family will find her soon.

To adopt Cristina (A2192893), foster, or take a dog out for lunch, email the shelter at
