Rescue Me ID: 14-09-16-00689Blaze (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Blaze is a beautiful dog looking for a forever home. His picture does not do him justice. He's definitely strong and very handsome. I'm not sure if he's really American Staffordshire or not -- it's really just a guess at this point. He has been neutered and is up-to-date on shots, is microchipped and heart worm negative. He needs help with manners, but is a great dog overall.

Rescue Me ID: 14-07-29-00464ChaCha- LOVES KIDS! (female)

American Staffordshire Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Male Dogs Only, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    ChaCha's forever family turned out not to be forever. Despite a year of going back and forth and trying to figure out a way for them to be happy with her, unfortunately they just do not want to keep her- ChaCha has done NOTHING wrong, has done nothing to deserve being surrendered a second time by her family, and now because she is in Illinois, I have limited means of helping her. A few wonderful local networkers have also been trying for several months to share ChaCha, and finally we got her courtesy listed by a rescue, but her adopter contacted me this weekend and said she had found a local shelter that was 'no kill' (do those really ... (Read More)exist?) and she doesn't want her any longer. ChaCha is GREAT with kids- has two little boys she loves right now more than anything, so I would love to give her this again. She has been getting periodic training to work on her mouthiness and overzealousness around other dogs- she is reactive to other reactive dogs, but could be just fine with equally mellow dogs if introduced correctly and given firm leadership (she is NOT aggressive though). https://www.facebook.com/rachelmlamb/media_set?set=a.10152405851967550.1073741883.551257549&type=1 (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 13-10-25-00548ChaCha- LOVES KIDS! (female)

American Staffordshire Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    ChaCha is a 6 year old female Staffordshire Terrier weighing 75 pounds that is fully housebroken and crate trained. She is a beautiful 'blue' gray and white color, and she is very playful & has a true zest for life- you'd never know she was an adult by the way she is always smiling, soaking up the attention and company of others! ChaCha loves to play ball with you and could go for hours, but when playing quietly, I have found that a durable Kong toy or Nylabone is best as she can get a little carried away! She is afraid of loud noises, i.e. fireworks, garbage trucks, and thunderstorms, so a new owner would need to know there will be times ... (Read More)when ChaCha will be needing your emotional support (and lap). She is also not a fan of water; if it is raining she will not go outside- she IS a California rescued dog, after all! ChaCha is up to date on all vaccinations, spayed and LOVES children- her previous adopter who is looking to find her a new home has two small boys, and ChaCha has learned to be extremely gentle and not plow into them when she is overly excited. She would make a family complete with her nuturing and affectionate personality, to be sure. Because she can easily climb a fence, she would need to be supervised while outdoors; we prefer that any yard have at least a 5-6 ft fence. A born athlete, ChaCha is a runner and will chase rabbits, squirrels, and cats (thus, we do not believe she should be in a home with any cats). Currently, ChaCha is in training, working on not only socialization around other dogs but working on improving her proper leash skills as she can be a strong puller; we have found she does best with a prong collar. Because she exhibits anxiety when around other dogs- losing focus and becoming reactive to their energy- we believe Chacha's ideal home would have her as the only pet. If you are interested in discussing Chacha further, and possibly setting up a meeting, please contact Rachel at #323-929-7311 or via email: Hollywooftotherescue@gmail.com. https://www.facebook.com/rachelmlamb/media_set?set=a.10152405851967550.1073741883.551257549&type=1 (Less)
