Rescue Me ID: 18-04-20-00226Freckles (female)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Our lovable Freckles is a force to be reckoned with! Just 8 months old, Freckles is paying her rescue dues and defying the odds! This happy-go-lucky American Staffordshire Terrier mix was found in Brooklyn, New York, as a homeless stray. Animal Control Officers brought her to NYC ACC, but sadly, nobody came to claim her. Despite great behavior evaluations, Freckles was booted out of the shelter adoption program, and was nearly euthanized, because she caught the shelter kennel cough. So, Freckles came to our rescue for a little TLC, and a crash course in basic manners. It became obvious to us that whoever owned Freckles did not make manners ... (Read More)and obedience training top priority. As a strong Bully Breed pup, Freckles has the bouyant good nature and puppy vibe that requires alot of exercise and focused play to channel her puppy hijinks into positive behavior. Freckles has that dopey puppy personality that will tickle the fancy of an active family, with older kids, who are all on the same page about raising an older puppy. Freckles has that gangly look of young dog not yet in full command of her feet. Freckles already weighs 40 pounds, and could well reach 50 pounds as she approaches adolescence. She is a very strong dog, and adopters must be prepared to continue her socialization and obedience work. The greatest challenge with Freckles, is shepherding her through thr puppy stage, and continuing her on a solid regimen of exercise and obedience. She is past the teething stage, and has not proven herself to be overly destructive, but folks who take on a young dog, must be prepared to puppy proof the premises and have realistic expectations of her limitations as far as house training and unsupervised time at home alone. Freckles is extremely smart, and has begun to grasp the concepts of basic obedience training. She is a dog who could go the full route to Canine Good Citizenship certification, and become a well trained family member, who is welcomed everywhere. Her temperament is outstanding, and she is extremely friendly to everyone she meets. Freckles has a high energy level and loves to play rough. She could join a multi-dog home, but must be matched with a dog who can tolerate a lot of rough play without escalating. We don't think Freckles would be a good candidate for a feline home. Freckles has decent house manners for a youngster, and is mostly house trained and nicely crate trained. Adopters must expect to finetune her potty routine, as she transitions to his new home. Freckles is in excellent health, and has been spayed. She had one of the best Vet reactions of any dog we've had recently, as she cajoled her way through the poke and prod routine. She has been vaccinated for rabies and DA2PP (distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parvo, parainfluenza, and coronavirus). She has had the 4dx test, and is negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis. She has been dewormed and microchipped.

Rescue Me ID: 17-12-13-00053Epi (female)

American Staffordshire Terrier    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Our Epi has as grand of soul as we have ever encountered. This big, bombastic beauty is a natural born cuddler who longs to become someone's Number One. She came to us recently from NYC ACC, where overbred Bully breeds are euthanized by the hundreds before they can get an even break in life. Epi was found as a city stray, and was taken to the Brooklyn Care Center. Despite frantic shelter life, Epi has made a remarkable impression on everyone she met. Shelter staff and volunteers agreed that Epi is spectacular, and she received the best behavior evaluations. At first it seemed likely that Epi would be reunited with her owner, but sadly no ... (Read More)one came forward to claim her. We were made aware of Epi's plight and were asked to step up for her. We are so glad we did. This dog is destined to be the light of someone's life. She is an older puppy at just one year old, who's never had the benefit of any training or leadership. Her temperament is pure gold. She loves everyone, and is so full of joy, that she lights up a room when she enters. In a culture that vilifies the Bully Breeds, Epi stands out as an ideal dog for an active family with older, teenaged kids. She is a tri-color American Staffordshire Terrier, and is a high energy dog, muscular and strong at 60 pounds. While she loves to play with kids, she will overwhelm young children. She would do best in an active home, in which she can play a prominant role, with folks who understand the ongoing importance of exercise and leadership. If Epi is neglected to the point of boredom and frustration, she will likely make mayhem. Epi enjoys the companionship of other dogs, but is prone to rough-house play. She can easily join a multi-dog home, but energy levels must be matched and some attempt must be made to maintain calm, because rough play can bubble over into canine disagreements. We have not had her around cats, but she would definitely chase them in play beyond their tolerance. Epi is responding beautifully to her leash training, and has calmed down quite a bit since we have established a regular routine with her. However, some physical strength is necessary to handle her on lead, and she requires a good amount of exercise to keep her calm and focused. Epi has good house manners and loves her crate. She will benefit from ongoing obedience work, but is full of potential for the right bully breed lover. Epi has such a phenomenal temperament that she could easily coast all the way to Canine Good Citizenship Certification in the hands of motivated adopters. Epi has decent housemanners for an older puppy, and is housetrained and crate trained. Adopters are expected to forgive a few accidents during the course of her transition to a new routine, and fine-tune the potty schedule as appropriate. Epi is in excellent health, and is recently spayed. She is up to date on routine shots, and is dewormed and microchipped. Epi has tested negative for Heartworm, Lyme, Earlichia and Anaplasmosis. If you are interested in Epi please email: denise@eskiesoline.com or call/text Denise at 860-908-9738 for more info. (Less)
