    American Staffordshire Terrier Rescue Information: The American Staffordshire Terrier is an affectionate, stable breed that makes a wonderful family dog. Staffordshire Terriers are friendly and great with kids. A Staffordshire Terrier is obedient and very eager to please. A Staffordshire Terrier makes an excellent guard dog while still being exceptionally gentle towards children. A tendency of the American Staffordshire Terrier to be aggressive toward other dogs can be minimized through effective socialization early in life. Staffordshire Terriers can live in an apartment if they get enough exercise. They are not fond of cold climates.

    American Staffordshire Terrier Trivia: The Staffordshire Terrier was first bred in the nineteenth century in the English region of Staffordshire. An American Staffordshire Terrier will fight to the death to protect its family. The American Staffordshire Terrier is a gentler cousin of the American Pit Bull Terrier. The American Staffordshire Terrier has been bred carefully for fifty years to be especially well suited to families with children.

    Poor Hazel. She is a story we see too often in the rescue business. Hazel is a 2 year old terrier mix. Hazel was abandoned with her puppy Hudson in the area. Hudson was adopted, as puppies are quickly, and poor perfect momma Hazel remains at the shelter. Hazel is loving and affectionate when she becomes comfortable. When she first came to the shelter she was scared and shy but, with time Hazel has opened up and loves to give kisses and snuggle. Hazel would do well in a family as an only pet with older children, teens and up. Do you see it in your heart to give Hazel a happy life like her pup Hudson, she's waiting.

    Check out those ears! Charlotte is too cute with those perky ears that stand straight up when she is paying attention. Charlotte is a 2 year old terrier. This beautiful gray girl was picked up as a stray. Charlotte's perky ears match her perky personality, she is an active girl and would love a home where she could exercise in her yard, go for walks and hikes. Charlotte is currently learning her basic commands and we believe she should be an only pet. Charlotte needs some continued training but, she is picking up quickly and when she has learned a bit more will be the perfect pet for an active family with older children.

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Bubba. Bubba is 8 months old and spent most of his puppyhood tied up in an apartment. We saved him off of Craig's List without hesitation or else he likely would have ended up in a fighting ring. Bubba is sweet, loving,a bit of a goof ball and loves everyone he meets. He came to us like a bull in a china shop but with training he now has a nice on/off switch. He enjoys playing ball, tug and running around. He is a high energy dog who needs an owner who understands the importance of being a good leader and providing structure, rules, and boundaries. His ideal family will also be active and able to give him both mental and physical ... (Read More)stimulation. We have been working on his social skills around dogs and he is doing well over here however he is best suited as an only dog at this time. With continued work and socialization he would be able to live with another dog. He is housebroken, crate trained, up to date on shots, and neutered. Bubba is fully trained in off leash obedience and his new owners will be required to take handling lessons from us so that they can maintain all the hard work he has done since arriving.

    Our Sweet Demi girl is ready for adoption. Demi is 2 yrs old and is very sweet, loving, and social. She is handler submissive and loves to please. She enjoys playing ball, tug and running around.

Demi does have some food allergies. We believe she is allergic to grain and chicken and when she came to us her skin was a disaster. We have since put her on a grain free fish diet (Acana) and her skin and coat look great. Her new family would need to ensure that they keep ...

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Mhysa is an incredible dog that has lived a difficult life. When we met her she was a guard dog for a drug house, and her owner no longer had any use for her because he was selling the property. He planned to dispose of her either by cutting her free or worse so we stepped in to get her to safety. You can read more details about her rescue story here: https://www.waywardranch.org/mhysa-the-usd1000-dog When we got Mhysa what we expected was a dog that would be far too aggressive to be rehomed, because that is how her owner described her, but we were hesitantly hopeful that we could help her. We were shocked when after only one day with us ... (Read More)Mhysa seemed like a dog that had absolutely no problems. She loved us, walked calmly past other dogs, and was incredibly smart! We were even more shocked to learn this sweet girl was very young, and is only about one year old! Mhysa is understandably nervous around new people due to her past, but she has gone through a great deal of training and is thriving. It now takes her just a few minutes to be comfortable with a new person, as long as they go slow with her. Once she bonds and opens up you'll be able to see how goofy this girl is! Her favorite things are belly rubs, squeaky bee toys, and meatball dog treats! She loves going for car rides and is completely housebroken. She walks well on leash and loves to go for walks. In public places like pet stores she is still nervous and can get shut down, but in the woods she is truly in her element and would make a fantastic hiking partner! Mhysa can't wait to have a home, for the first time in her life. Please give her a chance to wiggle into your heart! We ask that all families interested in her commit to meeting her several times, both to form a bond with her and to learn the training she knows to help her be the best dog she can be in her new home and life!

Rescue Me ID: 17-01-09-00413Juliet (female)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Adult Women Only 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Juliet is about 7 years old and her elderly owner passed away leaving her homeless and shelter-bound. Well we couldn't let that happen. She's been in our care a few weeks and we've been 'fixing her up!' She was treated for a skin infection and is still being treated for a double ear infection. She was spayed, microchipped and brought up to date on vaccines. We think Juliet would prefer to be an only dog at this time. Juliet is heartbroken and just wants companionship. She was with her owner 24/7 and now she's alone. She literally cries from her heartbreak. Can you welcome this lady into your home? She is medium sized and has a medium ... (Read More)energy level. She is very sweet and friendly and we know that you or someone you know would love to have her in their home. Contact Get A Bull at 516-714-4403 getabullrescue@gmail.com (Less)

Animal ID: 17-01-09-00411Champ (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    Champ is a great dog, but needs an experienced owner. He was recently adopted but was returned. Without going into it he was given up on after only a day or two. Champ loves car rides, going for walks and loves being with people. He is high energy. He came to us when he was about 1 year. Originally found as a puppy he lived with a young girl who was about 19 and kept him crated most of the time. Not neutered or vaccinated, Champ was a handful. However considering he was crated out of convenience Champ was a product of his environment. Champ needs someone who is committed to training but someone who is an alpha. Champ was fortunate ... (Read More)to be seen by Packleaders (one of the trainers that works with Ceasar Milan) and he said that Champ is a great dog, but that his adopter must be an alpha - period. He needs to be focused. The family that recently adopted him spent time with him at the shelter and I had my doubts, but they were insistent. Champ has so much to offer the right person and he is a very, very smart dog. He knows who is committed and who isn't. If you are looking for a sweet boy, with a goofy personality who would love walks (hikes,) long car rides Champ is a great dog, BUT he needs to know his adopter will make the time commitment. If you are interested in CHAMP, please go to www.petestablished.com and fill out our online application. If you have any questions please email at goshenhumanesociety@gmail.com. (Less)

Just somewhere this old man can live out his last few years in the comfort of a nice home.He really is just a low key kinda guy who just wants to hang out and relax. Jackson knows basic obedience and is housebroken. Jackson should also be the only pet in the house.

    Emmy is a 5 year old female pit bull mix who was surrendered to the shelter due to landlord issues.

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Dallas is a 1 1/2 year old male pit bull mix who was surrendered to the shelter because his owner could no longer keep him. Dallas is dog selective and its unknown how he does with cats at this time. He can have spurts of energy so thats why he'll need to be in a home with kids 10 and older. Dallas will also need more obedience training going forward. For all of his energy though,he's a very docile young man....

Rescue Me ID: 16-06-08-00384Mason (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult


    Mason is a 2 year old male pit bull mix who was surrendered to the shelter due to personal problems in his family. Mason is a strong boy so he will need someone who can handle all that muscle. He is dog selective but we believe he does get along with female's. He has not been tested with cats at this time. He truly is a very friendly and happy big boy so we feel he would do well in a family with kids over 10, but again they will need to be able to handle this powerful boy.

Animal ID: 35952Hercules (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Just look at that gorgeous face!!!!! Hercules is a big boy who has found himself in need of a new home. He is only a year old and is really a puppy in a big boy suit! He is a little bit shy at first but warms up quickly. He seems to like children very much and his current owner has children with whom he plays. He walks well on a leash, even on a crowded NYC street, sniffing strangers as they walk by. He would do best with submissive dogs and he is a little dominant. He would benefit from a strong pack leader who can give him structure and boundaries that a young dog needs. If you'd like to foster or adopt Hercules, please apply at ...

    Meet Charlie Charlie is a 50 lb, 3 year old pit bull mix with a heart of gold immediately seeking a forever home! Charlie has been through so much to get to where he is today, a loving, affectionate dog desperately looking for a family to love him. Charlie is considered to be 'special needs' because of the limp that he has from being hit by a car over a year ago when he was a stray . . . from there he was found by a good samaritan, brought to vets office and ultimately landed in a large municipal shelter. That's where we found him and began the process of rehabilitating him. We enrolled him in a training program to help build strength ... (Read More)in his leg - he has been doing remarkably well and although he will always walk with a limp, Charlie is active and happy, and enjoys walking. Charlie is also a survivor of heartworm disease which has been treated and he is now totally healthy! 50 lb Charlie is a lovebug and it doesn't take him long to love you, roll over for belly rubs and give lots and lots of kisses!!! He loves his toys and while he gets along with dogs, he would prefer to be your one and only pet. Charlie is house-trained, knows 'sit' and 'place' and is working really hard to learn 'down' and 'stay'. He would be best in a home with kids 13+. He really is a special dog, he is the mushiest dog we have in our rescue group, he just loves to love and LOVES ALL PEOPLE. He has a heart of gold.
