Rescue Me ID: 18-04-21-00040Willa (female)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi there my name is Willa and I am looking for a fur-ever home! I am very sweet and submissive. I will always greet you with kisses when you come in the door. My hobbies include: belly rubs, cuddling, sleeping and doing all sorts of yoga poses! Sometimes I get the zooms and want to play. I love squeaky toys and tasty treats. My mom says I do great on walks however I get anxious when people with 2 wheels pass by so we choose to take a more secluded route where there's less people and cars. My previous home told me I did not do well with small children, they move too fast and I can get confused and anxious. I have very good manners when it ... (Read More)comes to eating. I sit and stay very well too! If I'm greeted with lots of treats almost anyone becomes my new friend. Where you go, I go. I am like a shadow! I hope you don't mind my loud snoring when we take naps (which I love to do!) I prefer to solo in the home as I'm still being introduced to new dog friends. I am up for whatever you are up for. If you feel like lounging in the house on a rainy day or going out on an adventure I am your girl! (Less)

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: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi y'all. My name is Honey and I am sure you can tell by my initial greeting I am from down south, Memphis, Tennessee to be exact. I was born and raised a Tennessee football fan but my allegiance will change for you now that I am in your turf. Right now I am in the shelter and I sure would like to get out soon!! I am getting rather stressed and I need your hospitality. I need a home. Be it a foster or an adopter, I need to de-stress. Please consider me. So let me tell you a little bit about myself, I'm awesome! I don't mean to be stuck up but I caught your attention didn't I? Oh yeah and how about my tongue? Is that not the ... (Read More)largest piece of ham you have ever seen? Anyway, I'm a good looking southern gal who loves people and kids. I will get excited when I first meet you and jump a little, but I will calm down after a few minutes. In my prior foster home I lived with 2 other dogs and played great with them. I will get along well with other dogs as long as the introduction is done slowly so I can gain my confidence around them. Even though I can be energetic I also have a mellow side. One of my favorite things to do is lay on the couch at night with someone and rest my head in their lap. I am really good at sleeping all night on my dog bed. I am housetrained and never have accidents. I know 'sit' and 'backup' when someone is trying to get out the door. I have not had alot of 'one on one' training but I am smart and eager to please. I love to ride in the car and watch the birds out the window. I will chase them if you let me. Does that make me a 'Bird Dog'? So, if you're looking for a dog to brighten up your day thenI'm the dog you have been waiting for. I am waiting for you now. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 18-03-10-00032Dudley (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Hi my name is Dudley and believe me I am by no means a dud. I am a very handsome guy, with a beautiful techno-color brindle dream coat, a great white smile, and come on... how can you resist those double flop over ears? No one knows my back story since I was found as a stray and brought to the shelter by the animal control officer. I really don't want to be spending my time here as I really am just a puppy and being couped up is not the best thing for me nor my idea of a good time, if your catching my drift. I need to get out, stretch my legs, and run around like young dogs do. I am very playful and sometimes get a little jumpy and ... (Read More)want to grab my leash, but nothing that some training can't fix. I just need someone that will be patient with me and help me learn my manners. I get along with other dogs (check out my videos) and would be a great playmate for another dog that loves to play just like I do. I am really a social butterfly and would just love the chance to make some new friends....dogs and humans of course. I know I am going to be a great catch for somebody, could that somebody be you? I hope so!! CHECK OUT MY VIDEOS! (Less)

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: Spayed 

    Skylar has been waiting MONTHS for her home to come along. She's 5/6 yrs old and was abandoned on the streets pregnant and malnourished. Her puppies have all been adopted and she waits .....and waits.... and waits for her very own family. She is living in a kennel after losing her foster home due to not getting along with other dogs. She needs a home without other pets or young kids, but she really bonds to her people and deserves a nice cozy place to call her own. She is crate trained and has been working with a trainer on her basic commands. She loves to roll in the grass and play ball before settling in for a good snuggle. E-mail ...
