Rescue Me ID: 18-01-15-00438Jackson (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Deaf 

    This is Jackson and he is ready for a new home! Jackson loves to be with people and is good around kids but because of his size we prefer older children. He has been to the vet and is up to date on vaccinations and could have cared less with what the vet needed to do. We suspect he may be hard of hearing. He needs to be neutered that will be done before adoption. Jackson doesn't show much interest in toys yet but he does love to work for treats, he knows sit and is getting the hang of down. He takes the treats so gentle. He is roughly 3 years old and very mild mannered but not aware of his size. He enjoys going for walks and does pretty well ... (Read More)on a leash. He hasn't been loose with other dogs but show's no interest in his dog neighbor. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 18-01-11-00065Snoopy (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Hey what's up everybody? My name is Snoopy (used to be Spooky)... I like Snoopy much better as there is nothing spooky about me at all. I am a very easy going lovable dog. I love other dogs, adults, and kids. I love to go for car rides, and I enjoy just hanging out in the front seat while you run your errands. I do not like cats so I cannot be placed in a home that has any at all. I love being outdoors and love to go for walks and hikes. I'm pretty much game for anything, any outing, or any event. I have even been hitting the town and attending some holiday parties. When I am not being the life of the party I just like to curl ... (Read More)up on the couch under a blanket. I am also really smart and I know how to sit and shake paw.I am very food motivated, and very athletic, so I might do really well at agility training. If you're up for a challenge then so am I. Along the way I have also proven to be quite the dog to take to work. So if you have a job where you can bring me to work, I am ready to punch the clock with you. I have been staying with a great foster who has helped learnabout my personality and what a great dog I am. She says that I am not only good with other dogs, but incredibly appropriate. I don't jump on other dogs, I don't pester themif they're not interested, and I don't play rough. If a dog starts trying to play too rough with me, I just walk away and start snooping around on my own. My life has not always been the greatest but things are looking up for 2018. My New Years resolution is too have my own family so I can show them how great of a dog I am. If you are interested in meeting me I would love to meet you. (Less)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Hi!! My name is Sadie and I am about 5 years old. I'm a pittie mix (I think!) and really want to be your new best friend. I'm up to date on all my vaccinations, including heart worm and flea/tick and I'm already spayed. I'm not sure how I feel about cats quite yet, but I'm ok with other dogs that live in my foster home. My foster moms told me that I'm still learning how to play. I have so much energy and really want to be on the trails, out running, or going on adventures! The couch might be my new favorite place though! I spent two years in a shelter and no one came to look at me. I barked a lot and have strained vocal cords, but my new ... (Read More)foster home is much more relaxing and my voice is getting some well needed rest. The volunteers at the shelter really loved me, and helped me find some joy there. Now I'm on the hunt for my new family! I'm working on my house training and so far I can sit, wait, and accept treats! Bacon is my MOST FAVORITE thing. If you love bacon, maybe you're my new family. I sleep on a giant bed now and am learning to play with toys. If you take me home I would need a slow introduction to other friends, and a some reassuring love. I'll kiss you all day and snuggle with you at night. Are you interested in me? If you are interested in learning more about Sadie, please fill out an application on our website by copying and pasting the following link into your browser. http://www.brokentailrescue.org/adoption-application/ Sadie is being fostered in Winchendon, MA.

    Hi I'm Holly! I am a very sweet 8-year-old female pittie. My life started out kind of rough as I was found as a stray, just wandering lost and afraid. I was picked up and taken to the local animal shelter. No one has even tried to find me which makes me very sad but thats okay because everything happens for a reason and I know I will find a family that really loves and cares about me. Since I was a stray no one really knew what I was all about. They had a very nice lady come in and visit with me so she could learn more about me.

I don't have a problem with other dogs but I really love hanging with people. I have not been tested with cats so I dont know if I will like them or not. I have kept my kennel nice and clean but would really love to be out of this place and with a family that likes to walk or has a yard for me to play in, that would be awesome! So, if you're searching for a sweet, nice friendly gal with a great personality, look no further! I am your gal!Come meet me and lets see if it's a good match!I promise you will not be disappointed.

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi everybody my name is Pumpkin. I was found as a stray and brought in to a local shelter. Most ladies won't tell you their age but I have no shame, I am between 3-4 years old and just getting my life started. I am super sweet, if I do say so myself, and love all of the people that I meet. A nice lady stopped by with her dog and tested to see how well I got along with him and I did just fine. I was also tested with some cats and I did okay but I think I may have been too anxious in the cat room and really didn't quite understand what they were. I really need to get out of the shelter as soon as I can as I am very anxious in here and it ... (Read More)causes me to chew my tail lot. Because of that I must wear the cone of shame and its embarrassing for me. Can you please help me out of here so that I can settle in to a home environment, decompress, and oh yeah'|.get out of this cone of shame. Here are some videos to show you how I did with my dog and cat intros. Pumpkin with Gronk: https://youtu.be/poZlihCjc5Y Pumpkin in the cat room: https://youtu.be/4Ee83qLtqPc (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-12-20-00432Haiti (female)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed 

    Hi I'm Haiti. My life has been a little up and down lately. I have been living with my family for 7 years and due to some circumstances beyond my control they had to find me another home. While I was there I developed an eye infection that was left untreated. Scituate Animal Shelter was kind enough to take me in and I kissed the kind ladies that transported me there. The shelter is helping me with my eye and it is getting much better. I am a super sweet dog and I lived with 2 adults and 4 young children. I love to go for walks and be outside. I pull when I walk but I never had training on the proper way to do it!! With some time and ... (Read More)training I know I will become much better at it. At my old home I never was given the chance to meet other dogs so I get nervous around certain dogs and can be selective on who I like and who I don't so slow dog introductions would be a must. I have never been around cats so I don't know how I would react if one was to stop by. I am a super, sweet girl that just needs some love and attention. With that I know I will be the perfect fit for anyone. I am just looking to find my forever home with a family that can spend time with me, take me for walks, hikes, and just hang out. I promise I am worth it. Please give me a chance to show you. (Less)

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Chill Action Jackson Hey everyone it's Action Jackson and I'm here to tell you a little bit about myself and my ideal family. I am a handsome and energetic 4 year old Brindle American Staffordshire Terrier. My foster dad says if I was an action figure my tail would be sold separately but I'm not quite sure what he means. All I know is if I'm happy and I know it I wag my tail! I really love running, and playing, and toys and pinning the resident cats down to lick them all over! Life is good! My foster mom says dog savy cats would be best for me but again I'm not sure why because I'm just trying to love them. I'm good with other dogs ... (Read More)but I'm not a huge fan of sharing my toys. I can definitely work on that with help from my new family though. Speaking of my new family, does anyone know if Tom Brady is looking for another dog? I think I would be perfect to help him with his daily workouts. I'm really just looking for someone to take me out, work me hard and feed me right so I can be a perfect athlete. Because of my size and excitability I need a home with no young children. Teenagers who can withstand or dodge the Action Jackson tail accessory would be best. So if you think you or someone you know would be a good match please hurry and fill out an application to adopt me. I can't wait to start my new life with my very own forever family. Neutered, up to date on vaccines, negative for Heartworm and Lyme disease and microchipped, I am the total package. Absolutely the perfect candidate for adoption. Please check back for updates, or better still submit an application so that we can meet. (Less)

    I am very well trained as I have been in foster with a certified trainer for a while. I would be an ideal dog for a person that lives a quiet lifestyle and maybe a nice female dog. I like exercise but I like being a couch potato too. Check out my video!! I am looking for a guardian that is experienced with my breed and will continue my training. I have overcome many obstacles in my life and worked very hard to become the good dog I am today. I did bite once. That was 2 years ago when the trainer took me in because he believed in me so much.

    I am as adorable inside as I am outside. I I am a short, stocky female 55 lb. American staffie mix. I am around 2-3 years old and was found as a stray. They thought I might be pregnant but I am glad to find out it was only a fake pregnancy and my hormones are getting back in line. I am house-trained, love walks and car rides, enjoy playing ball, love hanging in they yard and basking in the sun, well mannered in the home and am good with other dogs if you allow me to meet them slowly. I am also good with children. Yep, I am told I am the full package!!:) I SO want a safe place so I can finally relax and cuddle with my forever family. I ... (Read More)promise I will add to your life much enjoyment and love. Please consider me as your next canine companion. I am waiting for you. (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 

    Your luck is about to change. I'm here! Hi, I'm Nala, and amazingly, I am waiting for adoption in my foster home through DRAR. This means you, yes YOU, or someone you know might be the lucky person to take me home! Seriously, I'm pretty sure once this post goes out there into Internet land, the lines will be AROUND THE BLOCK. Even if it's snowing. Even if it's a BLIZZARD. I'm that rare combination of a dog who will go out skateboarding and running with you, then come home, flop down on the sofa, and watch Netflix. I love playing with humans -- your opposable thumbs are SO CUTE! -- but I also have a game I play by myself, where I throw my ... (Read More)rope with a ball in the middle of it up in the air and catch it. I am super-affectionate with people and can live with a male dog or female dog. So beat the rush, folks... just email the rescue and set up a meeting. And hey... TELL A FRIEND! They'll be really upset if they find out and someone else snapped me up! Love, Nala (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-11-03-00078Gator (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier    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 

    Gator is ready to be part of your family! Gator is an affectionate, energetic 20-month old puppy who is ready to find his forever family. Gator's first few years haven't been very stable, but he's full of love. He is the ultimate snuggler- at his happiest curled up with his head on someone's lap giving kisses. Despite his loyalty and affection, Gator also does very well when left on his own. He's even happier if he's left with a peanut butter Kong to chew on for a few minutes before settling down for a nap. When you're ready to be out and about, Gator wants to join - he's still an energetic pup! He loves car rides - crack the ... (Read More)window and hes in heaven. He also loves going on walks, hikes and runs. Just show him his leash and he'll head straight to the door with a few happy leaps on the way. Gator already knows 'sit', 'stay', 'paw' and 'down.' He is food-motivated (and gentle taking treats!) so will be a quick and fun dog to train. He likes other dogs but can be nervous when first meeting them so will need some continued training and an owner who is willing to take things slowly. More than anything, Gator wants to find a family. He is looking for an owner who will enjoy his energy, loyalty and love and can offer a calm, stable home in exchange. (Less)
