Rescue Me ID: 17-05-15-00155Molesley (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    Molesley is a charming gentleman - simply stated, the perfect dog. He's a great companion and has been a loyal friend, a true pal and a loving member of our family since we brought him home from the shelter three years ago. Unfortunately, I've been transferred out of state and due to breed discrimination cannot bring him to our new home. Mose is neutered, up-to-date on all of his vaccinations and is microchipped. He's been DNA tested and his results are as follows: 62.5% American Staffordshire Terrier 12.5% Pembroke Welsh Corgi 12.5% Labrador Retriever 12.5% Mixed-breed Groups (Guard, Asian, Terrier, Sighthound, Herding) Molesley (named ... (Read More)after Joseph Molesley of Downton Abbey) shared our home with a female Boston Terrier without incident until she passed away of old age. He did very well with her, but has not been exposed to other dogs. He has shown leash aggression toward other dogs whilst on walks in the neighborhood - especially male dogs (we think he was not socialized with other animals when he was a puppy). We have boarded him for short stints three times whilst on vacation and they've advised us that he is not a 'good candidate for doggy daycare' but did well one-on-one with the handlers. HE IS NOT A DOG PARK DOG. It's just the two of us at home, so he's never been exposed to children. He'll do best with a single person (who doesn't travel for work) or a couple. Forget about keeping him off the sofa, it won't happen. Expect him to sleep with you. He's a protector and a watcher, but he's not aggressive. He just wants to be around you, but doesn't like to be hugged or held. Petting is OK and he'll hug you when he feels like it. IT'S LIKELY THAT HE WAS ABUSED BEFORE WE ADOPTED HIM. He's crate-trained and likes to settle in to his crate when it's time to go to work, but his crate isn't a place for punishment - or where he'll sleep at night. He WILL get anxious if you're at home and you put him in his crate - he wants to be where you're at and can't understand why you won't let him out. If you need to partition a space off for some reason (chores, Etc.), use a gate (we'll provide both the crate and two gates) - he'll respect them but he'll holler about it (like a husky ... it's the Asian in him). If you don't know what a Husky sounds like, it sounds like someone is strangling a three-year old kid. This is why Mose is NOT SUITABLE FOR AN APARTMENT, TOWNHOME OR DUPLEX - HE NEEDS TO BE HOMED IN A SINGLE FAMILY HOME ONLY. Why the long narrative? I want you to know exactly what you're getting yourself into. He's the perfect dog. We love him to death and it's breaking our heart to lose him. If you want to adopt him, you should expect to meet with us first. We will want references and we will want to see where you live. We will want you to meet him first. IF HE DOESN'T LIKE YOU, YOU CAN'T ADOPT HIM. PERIOD. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-05-06-00323Sno (female)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Deaf 

    Sno was rescued from NYC Animal Control. She was one of the volunteer favorites, and she makes friends everywhere she goes! Sno is deaf, and while we have labeled her special needs, Sno does not run around feeling sorry for herself. She makes friends with all dogs, adults and children. She is super sweet, and not particularly high energy. She does jump when she first meets someone however, or when she gets excited, so she will need some basic obedience training. Sno was in a home since she was a puppy - she was surrendered to the shelter when the family moved to a home that did not allow dogs. She is one of the sweetest, most beautiful dogs ...

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-27-00128Dexter (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    This is Dexter, a wonderful 6 year old pit mix who is in need of a responsible, loving family and new forever home. He is healthy and has been extremely well taken care of and with me since he was 8 weeks old. Dexter needs plenty of exercise and LOVES bike rides, hiking, walks and playing tug of war. As much as he loves exercise, he loves to get snuggled up on the couch or bed and relax. Dexter is very gentle but also does not always know his own strength, so his new owner must be the leader of the pack and be willing to meet his needs. He is great with adults and kids, but unfortunately does not get along well with other dogs/pets. He is ... (Read More)also neutered, current on all vet visits, shots, heartworm and flea and tick meds. We love Dexter very much and it pains us greatly to have to re-home him. Unfortunately, with the birth of our first child last year, he has become increasingly jealous with having to split the attention and became very standoffish toward my wife. Please only contact me if you're willing and ABLE to make the FULL LIFETIME COMMITMENT of our beloved dog. (Less)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi! My name is Eros and I'm a 3-year-old AmStaff mix and weigh about 55 lbs. I'm an incredibly sweet and loving dog with the perfect mix of energy and calmness: I love to play in the yard with other dogs, but I'll settle down when it's time to come inside. When dogs are rough with me, I'm still incredibly gentle and never growl or bite. I also love to play with children and don't mind if they climb on me or pull my tail - I am very patient! I am good in cars and I walk well on a leash. I'm a smart boy, so I am fully house-trained and I'm even learning basic commands! You will never meet a dog that's happier to be with his people, so let me ... (Read More)know if you're looking for a forever friend to give you unconditional love! Eros currently lives in a foster home in Texas, but transport will be included in the adoption fee and arranged by Rescue Road Trip if you choose to adopt! (Less)
