American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult


    The name's Micky, and I'm a real man's man...nothing mouse-like about me....well, other than my ears! I'm a stocky fella, a real athletic stud type of a guy which means that if you plan to take me for a walk, just know that I can be a bit of a puller. But it's true what they say, all the tough guys are really just squishy marshmallows on the inside...and I am a sucker for a good 'ol fashioned belly rub and a pretty face! I'm not always too sure about other dogs...especially the ones who like to get all barky and what not, so if you are interested in me and have another pet, I'd really like to meet them first before I decide if they are cool ... (Read More)enough to hang with me. Anyway, that's me...Micky...come check me out! For more information on Micky, please contact his Case Manager, Juliet Holland Bay, at 740-607-2410.

Health: Neutered 

    Male PUREBRED American Staffordshire Terrier (DNA TESTED) **Already Neutered* Heartworm Negative It's me Ryder....I was adopted a few days ago but me and my new brother just weren't seeing eye to eye so I decided to come back to the Muskingum County Dog Warden & Adoption Center to look for a better fit for myself. My adoptive mom loved me a whole bunch, but I didn't want to make life hard on her. She told the volunteers how great I am...I am house-trained, sleep through the night, love car rides, and cuddles too! If you are worried about getting a dog and dealing with the 'puppy years,' you don't have to worry about that with me because I ... (Read More)am a mature, older gentleman.

Animal ID: PeekaPeeka (female)

American Staffordshire Terrier    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Male Dogs Only, Good with Kids and Adults 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Peeka. Peeka is a 3 year old American Staffordshire Terrier. She was seized by the police as part of a cruelty investigation and we know that the first part of her life probably wasn't great. That does not stop Peeka though. She is probably one of the sweetest dogs we have ever had. She loves every person and just lights up when she sees you. She loves attention and loves to snuggle. Peeka also loves male dogs (she has a huge crush on one of the other dogs in her foster home!). Peeka has a back injury. When she came to us she was barely able to walk at all. After seeing a specialist and putting her on a huge dose of steroids we ... (Read More)have seen incredible improvement and she gets around well. She is no longer on any medication. Her right back leg is very strong but her back left still gives her trouble. She is not in pain but she will always walk funny and slowly-- although the vet expects to see some improvement over time. When she gets excited she tries to run and can go for a short distance. Peeka knuckles under on her left back foot and as a result scratches the top of her paw. So, most of the time when she goes outside she wears a bootie to protect her foot. Peeka is a survivor. She does not look back, only forward and that is what we are doing for her. Its really hard for us to watch this video and to see her walk and sometimes stumble and fall. It does not bother her though. She is not in pain, she just walks funny. She is all ready for her forever home. So, here are her requirements..... Peeka needs a forever family who will be patient and understanding with her. She is unable to jump onto the furniture and needs help getting in and out of the car (but she LOVES to ride). She likes to sleep on her back on her fluffy dog bed and also likes to have a pillow for her head. She does not want much exercise. She likes to go in and out to go potty but otherwise she is happy napping in the sun. Peeka would enjoy living with kids if they could be respectful of her space and would not fall on her or bang into her. We talk a lot about overcoming adversity. Like so many dogs we see who have special needs, the dog overcomes them so much better and easier than the people do. Peeka is a survivor. She deals with it and is just happy to be in a safe, warm home with a comfy bed and plenty to eat. Please SHARE Peeka's story so that we can find her forever home for her. She deserves a future of comfort and spoiling! To apply to adopt Peeka, visit www.adoptapitrescue.org/applications.html Peeka is up to date on vaccinations, spayed, microchipped and heartworm tested.

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Male Dogs Only, Good with Kids and Adults

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    I rescued Lexis about 10 years ago. She had a very rough start to life. I have loved her and taken care of her, but am unable to take her where I am moving. She is very loving to humans and is good with the male dog she has been with. Unfortunately, she hasn't proven to be too friendly with other dogs. I am looking for someone who works from home or is retired but still has the energy and strength to deal with a very intelligent, strong, loving dog like Lexis. I need to do something because my options are few. Help!!

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi! My name is Kahn! I am a year old boxer mix and I weigh 60lbs. I love going on walks and running around the yard. I am looking for a forever home with space to run and play. Although I'm 60 pounds of pure muscle, I sometimes think I'm a lap dog and will want to snuggle right up with you! I am, by far, the best cuddler around and love to give kisses! I would do best with someone that has time to give me a lot of attention, take me out to play, and who is as active as I am. I do well with everyone I've met. Although I haven't spent time with kids, I am a gentle guy and would do just fine. I like large dogs and will need supervised with ... (Read More)smaller dogs. I'm still a puppy and I like to use my paws when I play, my foster mom says it's just because I'm a boxer. I must confess that I'm just a tad bit stubborn. I've learned all of my basic commands and I walk on a leash like a pro, but sometimes I prefer to have a treat before I do them and I LOVE treats! My foster mom says it's just because I'm young and it will take time, so I need my forever person to be patient and willing to keep up on the training. Will you be my person? I am heart worm negative, up to date on vaccinations, neutered, microchipped, house trained, and know all of my basic commands. Apply to adopt me at halok9behavior.com (Less)

He shows positive signs of being trainable and is very ... (Read More)attentive and treat-motivated. He is receiving an official behavior evaluation this Friday.

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Are you or someone you know looking for a new addition to the family?? Barry might be your man! We pulled Barry from the franklin county dog shelter when he had less than 24 hours to live! We currently crate and rotate him since one of our dogs doesn't do well with him but would love to get him adopted ASAP as we feel he deserves more human time! He is an active guy who loves to go for runs and play tug-of-war, but Barry is also totally content just relaxing on the couch with his humans! Barry is a pit mix and is anywhere between 2-4 years old. He is fixed, UTD on shots and chipped. We do feel Barry would thrive in a home with no other dogs ... (Read More)but he does do well with SOME dogs under the right circumstances (he gets along great with our youngest pup who is more playful and submissive)! We've noticed he does better with female dogs. Barry has had professional training at kennel club USA which also included lifetime training and socialization sessions for him and his adopter. He is crate trained but does well out and about about too! Barry is quite the snuggler and will take any chance he can to jump in your lap and enjoy some human time! Snuggling is definitely his favorite pastime :)! He does well with kids and seems to do well with cats. If you're interested in Barry, please email or text me!! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-08-04-00833Snow (female)

American Staffordshire Terrier    Age: Young Adult

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

    Adopted from a local shelter in December of 2015. She was getting along with both resident dogs (both female one Great Dane one Lab mix). The Great Dane got aggressive with her and they could not be around one another after the incident. She played nicely and submissively with our Lab mix but became aggressive at a point with her as well. She is currently living with a family member who is not able to keep her because he is losing his house. He has not been keeping up with training but I go up a couple of times a week to work with her. I have called the local rescues and most have told me that she might be better off euthanized. I disagree, ... (Read More)she is a very loving girl and wants to please her humans. She is very playful and knows some sign language. She recently learned how to swim and loves it! I think because of her dog aggression and with her being deaf it is really hindering her adoption. Also, I believe there is hope with her aggression issues. If somebody could spend the time with her and with the right training. (Less)

    [Read About Natural Seizure Care] I've had bruno for 3 years I adopted him from a shelter. He's been a good protective dog til March of 2016 he started having seizures months spread out.

He can chew through anything so he needs a good tuff chew toy. My mom recently had a stroke also which is why I need him rescued. I can't deal with both happening and she needs ...

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Male Dogs Only, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Introducing Smooch! Smoochie is a sweet girl about 6 years old. She is good with male dogs and can sometimes be OK with some females, but can also be aggressive with them so would do best as an only dog or in a household with a male dog. She loves people and although she can be barky when she meets new friends, if you throw the ball for her, she quickly becomes all yours - this lovely lady LOVES to fetch the ball. So, if you have a good ball-throwing arm or a ball thrower, maybe you could be her person. Check out Smooch in action and learn about her from one of her favorite volunteers over on Youtube.

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    This boy had a rough start but found love. He had been shot and still reacts by barking and fearful behavior to those noises. He deserves a great family to spoil him. He gets along with schoolage kids but has not been tested with younger children/babies. No cats. He is selective with dogs so we are seeking an a home with no pets. He's a big baby when it comes to his best human friend, cuddles up at night and listens very carefully. He knows many commands, loves to swim and play fetch. He would make a great companion and best friend for someone looking for a dog that's committed for life. He's unconditional.
