Peter Abelard was a medieval philosopher known for his passionate love affair with his wife, Heloïse. Our Abelard is a one-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier who is known for his love affair with his stuffed animal -- whichever one he has at the moment. You can find him carrying it around his den, outside on walks, and we're sure he'd love to carry it right on into his forever home!

This silly guy was found as a stray by our Animal Control Officers before making his way to our Oglethorpe Adoption Center. But that phase of his life hasn't seemed to bother him. Our Animal Care staff report that, "He's just a really sweet dog." Even better, he's good with dogs and young kids. Adopt him today!
