Animal ID: R.4.5.13.17ROSCOE (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    FROM ROSCOE'S TRAINER: 'Rosco is a very high energy dog who was very under socialized . He needs to be crated when left alone. His energy is way too high to be left to his own devices. When he was brought to the vet, he chewed the seat of a workers car when she ran in to check him in. Rosco should be continued to be socialized in a controlled setting such as a daycare. He calms after getting all that energy out and becomes a very affectionate dog once his social needs are met. I would not recommend him being around small children as he would most likely view them as playmates and may mount or be too rough with them. Rosco needs someone who ... (Read More)can handle his size and energy. Maybe a dominant male who has patience and is not heavy vocal to correct him. Again, I would be happy to help train any potential foster who would be willing to take him on, or help any way I can.' DARL will provide supplies, medical and training. Foster or adopt is available.

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

    Dee is a four yr.old neutered pit mix that has been in rescue for over a year. He was surrendered by his family when they did not have the resources to help him with his severe allergies. Dee has since completed allergy testing and injections and he is currently being maintained on zyrtec OTC once a day. He must be on grain free diet.....dehydrated foods such as The Honest Kitchen or Stella and Chewy work best for him. He also loves apples and veggies for snacks. Dee would do best as an only pet as he loves to be the center attention. He walks well on leash and will have ongoing training and support for the new home. He is allergic to cat ...

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)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Male Dogs Only, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
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.

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)
