'Sheba' My Big Red Dog

 Sheba, a 3 year old Labrador Retriever/American Staffordshire Terrier mix. I adopted her in the end of January 2006 from Animal Welfare Leaague (Chicago Ridge, IL.). She rust-brown in color, stands 22" tall and full out to ≈ 85# bigger then AmStaff, but as you can see not over-weight. That's where the Labrador kicks in I guess. She has the tail, ears and face of AmStaff, the muzzle, body and coloring of a fox red Ladrador. More then one person ask if she a Ridgeback. I say Lab/AmStaff mix or AmSaffador.

 American Staffordshire Terrier :   A variety of breeds were used to develop the "Am Staff" including the Bull Terrier, the Old English White Terrier, the Black and Tan, the Bulldog, the Mastiff, the Pointer, the Dalmatian and the Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Once known as the Yankee Terrier, the Half-and-Half, and the American Bull Terrier. Originally recognized as the Staffordshire Terrier, his name was changed to American Staffordshire Terrier to avoid confusion with the Staffordshire Bull Terrier. The "Am Staff" is now an affectionate and loving family pet. Remember Pete the pup from the TV comedy "Our Gang"? He was an Am Staff. More on AmStaff click here

 Did you know? The coat color of yellow Labradors, unlike the other colored varieties, can be quite varied in the phenotypical outcome; the displayed colors ranging from white to fox red. More on Shades of Yellow click here
Labrador Retriever :   Once known as the "St John's Dogs", the Labrador Retriever is one of the most popular breeds in the United States. Originally from Newfoundland, Canada the Labrador was trained to jump overboard into the icy waters to haul fisherman's nets to shore. Specimens were brought to England in the 1800's by English ships coming from Labrador, where the dog's fine retrieving instincts were honed and developed. One of the best family dogs and canine companions because of their gentle, loving disposition, the highly trainable Labrador also excels in drug detection, as a guide for the blind, and service dog for the disabled. The breed is also an outstanding obedience and field trial competitor. More on Labrador click here

I like to roll, not rock-n-roll.

Give me a treat I know where they are.

Out in the sun.

The toy she like best is away with her.
It makes me dizzy the way she chases her tail.

Sheba and I are still Bear fans.
1st Quarter Bears 14, Colts 6. Then what the hell,
down the tube it went. Final Colts 29, Bears 17.

So, I play with a duck !
