  Pipsqueak is a tan and white American Staffordshire Terrier, 1 year and 6 months old. He came to Animal Allies as a stray. Pipsqueak is very high energy and super social. He is outgoing and playful, but also very cuddly.  He isn't interested in toys, rather people and hanging out with you all day! He will be neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated by the time of adoption.  Two free training sessions will be provided by Animal Allies.
