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

    .Happy Presidents' Day! I am Jackson, a 4 year old American Staffordshire Terrier. I have been DNA tested and am 100% pure. I have a handsome brindle coat and am described as a very loving boy. As big and strong as I am, I have to admit that small children scare me. The are fast, noisy and unpredictable and I just don't know what that is all about. Adult company is what I crave. I am a man's man but I love the ladies too. My foster folks are still getting to know me so are not yet sure how I would be with other dogs or cats.They think an adult home with a fenced yard would be perfect for me. Neutered, up to date on vaccines, ... (Read More)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. Jackson is being fostered in Framingham, MA. The adoption fee is $300. If you are interested in finding out more about Jackson, please fill out an application on our website by copying and pasting the following link into your browser: http://www.brokentailrescue.org/adoption-application/ We expect that all adopted dogs will enroll in a formal dog training class with their new owners. Obedience and training classes are an excellent way to learn more about your newly adopted dog, gain handling and training experience, and improve your relationship with your pet.

We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label (Less)

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)

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)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Jada is the most adorable 43lb, 7 year old pocket pittie you will ever meet. Jada is extremely people friendly and gets along with everyone immediately. She wins everyone over with her sweet demeanor and unconditional love. If you are looking for a cuddle partner, look no further - Jada is your girl! Jada thinks she is a lap dog and will curl up on your lap or wrap herself in blankets to take a nap. She is already housetrained, and knows sit, paw, and down. Jada loves to eat, but will patiently sit and wait for her food until you tell her it's ok. Since she is so food motivated, she is a really fun dog to train! She learns quickly ... (Read More)and recently mastered crate, stay, and drop it, and we are currently working on listening with distractions and not jumping to greet people. Jada would love to continue her training in her new home and would also benefit from formal training. You would never guess Jada is 7! She is a little ball of energy who loves to go for runs and play tug-of-war. She gets really into play time so older, dog savvy children or adults would be best for her. Jada is very reactive to other dogs on leash. She is also selective with dogs during playtime and only gets along with large submissive males after proper introductions. We haven't seen her with cats, but from her interest in squirrels, no cats is best. Jada has been very happy being the only pet in the household! Jada is also wonderful in the car! If you are interested in finding out more about Jada, please fill out an application on our website and her foster parent will reach out to you! http://www.brokentailrescue.org/adoption-application/ See more pictures and updates here: https://www.facebook.com/Katiesfosterdog/ Jada is being fostered in Newton, MA and the adoption fee is $300.

Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    My name is Mama. I am a 7 year young, white and tan, American Staffordshire Terrier. I am looking for a home that has experience with my breed. I love to learn and I love to snuggle. Are you a snuggly teacher type?? I need you!! I love to sleep with humans but I will sleep in my bed if you insist. Or my other fav, a full laundry basket of clothes!! Although I had training to work on my being reactive to other dogs, I am very selective of dogs who may want to share my home and would prefer to be the only pet in the home. I should go to a home with older children or adults only because small children's loud noises and running about make ... (Read More)me anxious. I am up to date with all vaccinations, spayed and microchipped. I know basic commands such as sit, lay down, and stay but am still working on not jumping to greet visitors. I just get so excited!! When my humans are home I prefer to snuggle with them or find a spot of pillows to lay on. I am housebroken and will even tell you when I have to go out by going to the door. It is when you don't see or hear me that accidents may happen so it is best to crate me while you are away. Because I know going in there means you'll be leaving me, I will walk as slowly as possible towards it hoping you will change your mind but if you reward me with treats, I go right in! I am a sucker for a good treat! When I do go out, I am pretty fast at coming back in, unless my human is outside. Then I'll be happy to stay outside all day. Wherever my human is, whatever my human is doing I want to be by their side, even when they use that awful vacuum monster. When they bring that creature out I hop from couch to couch when it comes near me but won't leave the room because I have to make sure it doesn't eat my human! When I sit down my markings look like a heart on my bum. That's because I'm full of love! I love my humans and love being with them and giving them kisses and getting belly rubs! I love treats too, and toys! But mostly I just love being next to my human and cuddling as much as possible! If you think you can give Mama all the love she deserves please fill out an application at https://secure.mailjol.net/allforms/u/3779f08e.php . You must write JenGen as the Organization name. The Organization email is Jengen368@yahoo.com . You must fill out the adoption application to be considered. Adoption donation, adoption contract, and home visit required. Proof of home ownership or long standing rental with landlord approval required. (Less)
