Rescue Me ID: 17-07-16-00331Tallman (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Our stunning Tallman is a sage old soul, who at just two years old has really defied the odds. At such a young age, he is a two-time resident of NYC ACC, having been adopted through the Shelter program, and then turning up again as a stray, with no beloved owners to come for him. Tallman was stranded once again at NYC ACC, heading toward euthanasia. The chaos that this young dog has experienced is surely overwhelming, however he has traversed the rescue process twice now with sublime grace. During both NYC ACC stays, he has been designated a 'Helper' dog because of his amazingly calm demeanor and exemplary doggie social skills. Tallman is ... (Read More)really one in a million. There is not a shimmer of snark or malice in this graceful Soul. He loves everyone and everyone loves him. Tallman was a cooperative sweetheart during his vet exam, and SAFER evaluation, earning the top ratings in both areas. Shelter contacts recommended that he could be placed in just about any kind of home with great success. And still, with all the accolades, as well as the outpouring of fan mail from the Internet, Tallman found himself on the Euthanasia list. He was released to us, along with his buddy, Alex, who looks like his litter mate. These big beauties are predominantly black Labrador Retriever, with a healthy dose of Staffordshire Terrier. Tallman is a large, strong dog, and is at a healthy weight of 66 pounds. He has a well muscled physique, but not the bulk that you see in many bully mixed breeds. He is tall, slender, graceful and quite swift in motion. Tallman's presence has a debonair panache, accented by white tuxedo stripe down his chest that gives him an air of sophistication. Tallman has adapted to foster care beautifully and continues to show us a delightful personality and balanced nature. He doesn't have the over-the-top energy that we see so often in other Bully mixed breeds, but has a relatively calm demeanor, and is easy to handle on lead. He would be an excellent choice for a novice Lab or Bully adopter. Of course, Bully mixes are higher energy than most dog breeds, so even though Tallman is at the calm end of the energy spectrum, he still needs sufficient exercise to be happy. Tallman loves to play, and thrives in outdoor activities. He has adapted like a fish to his swimming sessions, and would make a great walking companion. Talman would do well with one to two brisk leash walks each day, plus focussed playtime and obedience work. Tallman is an obedience natural, and could well go on to earn his Canine Good Citizenship Certificate, or compete in obedience competition. He knows all of his basic commands, and is extremely treat motivated. He responds well to all types of positive reinforcement training, and is very well behaved in public. Adopters should continue his program, and develop his full potential. Bully mixes as exceptional as Tallman should be the Breed Ambassadors. Tallman could join just about any kind of home. He is calm, well behaved, and friendly to all. Although he is extremely easy to handle, he may overwhelm toddlers, and cats, but he'd be fine with older children and other well behaved dogs. As an adult dog, Tallman has excellent house manners, and is well past the puppy mayhem stage. He is house trained and crate trained, although adopters should expect to troubleshoot the occasional accident that may occur as he adjusts to a new routine. Tallman is a calm car passenger, and loves to experience new adventures with his chosen person. The more action he gets, the better he likes it. Talman definitely loves to be the center of attention. Tallman is neutered, has been vaccinated for rabies and DHLPPC (distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parvo, parainfluenza and coronavirus) He has had the 4snap test, and is negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis. He has been microchipped and dewormed. If you are interested in Tall Man, please write to or call Denise at 860-908-9738 for more info. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-07-16-00197Alex (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Our magnificent Alex has the bouyant good nature that attracts Bully breed folks to these lovable high energy scamps. No other dog group has been so overbred, mishandled and maligned as the Bullies, and we are thrilled to have Alex with us, at this young stage of his life, so that we can find his forever home. Three years old, Alex started off his rescue journey as a statistic: just one more homeless stray roaming the mean city streets. He was picked up as a stray and brought to NYC ACC. He has traversed the rescue process with ease, and had displayed great confidence and panache as he has interacted with everyone along the way. His ... (Read More)behavior evaluations were exemplary, and he was adopted through the shelter adopter program, only to return to the shelter within four hours. The adopter's home dog pack refused to accept Alex, and while his behavior remained calm, he was ousted by two Shih Tzus and a Labradoodle. Go figure. Alex joined us over a month ago, along with Tall Man, another large bully, and they quickly became great friends. These dog looks so much alike they could be littermates. Alex appears to be largely black Labrador Retriever due to his girth and height. He is a large strong dog at 66 pounds, with a lean, muscular physique, and floppy Lab ears. He has a large block head head, with a broad skull that suggest some Staffordshire Terrier DNA. He has a wide swath of white, sweeping down his chest that gives him a regal tuxedo look. Alex truly represents the best of beauty and temperament in both breeds. He has charmed everyone he has met, and his professional behavior evaluations have been exemplary. Alex would be a fantastic choice for a Lab or Bully breed lover, who is willing to continue the exercise and obedience regimen that has fostered such great behavior so far. Alex is high energy, and needs vigorous exercise. He is having a blast this summer. Between hiking in the woods, and swimming, we have managed to tire him out! Alex loves to be on the go: the more action, the better. A bored, frustrated Bully will make mischief, to be sure, but in the hands of dedicated breed enthusiasts, who rejoice in their high energy companions, Bullies are Man's devoted BFFs. Alex is an ideal choice for an active single or couple. He is extremely friendly, and good with strangers, but he would likely overpower young toddlers. We haven't had him around cats, but he loves other well mannered dogs. He loves to play with other dogs matched to him for size and energy level, and would be a great companion to another well-trained dog. Alex has excelled at his obedience training and is extremely food motivated. He responds well to positive reinforcement training, and has learned all of his commands, so that adopters will be able to get up to speed with him quickly. He has great house manners and is house trained and crate trained. Adopters will need to forgive the occasional accident that might aq transitions to a new potty routine, in a new home. Alex has been thoroughly vetted, He has been vaccinated for rabies, DHLPPC (distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parvo and parainfluenza, coronavirus), and has been boostered as needed. He has had the 4dx test, and is negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis. He has been dewormed, and microchipped. If you are interested in Alex, please write to or call Denise at 860-908-9738 for more info. (Less)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very Low Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi! My name is Esther and I'm a 7-year-old Boxer mix and weigh about 60 lbs. I'm a very happy girl and my tail is wagging all of the time! I'm very gentle with children and I love all people - you'll never meet a sweeter girl than me. After proper introductions, I even get along with dogs! I LOVE to give kisses and cuddle, but I will lay down and wait patiently by your side if you're busy. I am fully house-trained and crate trained and NEVER chew anything up. I'm a couch potato, so I don't require long walks or lots of exercise - I'd rather just lounge around with you. You'll never meet a dog that's happier to be with her people, so let me ... (Read More)know if you're looking for a cuddle buddy to give you unconditional love! I currently live 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)
