Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Carter is a 2 year old male blue American Staffordshire terrier from the SVAS. How can you deny that handsome smile?! He is a very sweet boy who loves to play for hours and sleep on your lap, he can be a bit pushy so he needs a family who is willing to give him all the attention he craves. He is very high energy and not off leash trained so he will need a home with a fenced in yard or an active family willing to spend lots of time out and about with him. He is house trained and crate trained. He would like a home where he is an only dog as he is dog selective meaning he chooses who likes, he may be accepting to other submissive dogs so if ... (Read More)you feel your dog may work with him, we will require several meet & greets prior to adoption to make certain he is comfortable. He is not toy, food or other resource aggressive with his people whatsoever. He is a really wonderful boy with a lot of years ahead of him, he is 100% healthy, UTD on all vaccines, heartworm/lyme negative and neutered.

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Bobby loves car rides, meeting new dogs in neutral surroundings, is very comfortable in his crate and spends a lot of time getting hugs, pets and belly rubs. He is very outgoing and very intelligent. Neglected and abandoned in Fairmount Park, Bobbie was rescued as a stray. He is super lovable, curious and would love a home where he receives attention from a person (or couple) experienced in handling dogs with fear in their background. Bobby is up to date on all his shots, has filled out after extreme malnutrition, we have had him neutered and microchipped. We really love him but he is not a good match for our home. While he is settling ... (Read More)in, he still shows signs of fear by barking at my wife. She is working very hard to overcome her fear of him but it is just not working out. We are heartbroken to know that he cannot stay in our home. We would love to see him go directly to either a foster or adopter home rather than a shelter. We can continue to house him for another week or so, but it is getting difficult. (Less)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    SASHA, found abandoned and tied in front of an apartment building in the Bronx. The finder waited for an owner to return but she was left outside for a few hours. Behavior during intake Sasha was very friendly and allowed all handling. She allowed to be approached and jumped up to greet us. The volunteer at the shelter had this to say about sweet petite (40 lbs) Sasha and we can confirm that she is the dearest sweetest girl. "So sweet and gentle, Miss Sasha was ready for a walk, taking care of her business the moment we were outside, and wagging her tail as we walked to the park. In the park, she lay down froggy style to better watch ... (Read More)everything going on, and when I sat down next to her she rolled over for a belly rub. Must be belly rub 'oclock!!! She's sweet, playful, gorgeous and fun, giving me lots of kisses, wanting to meet other dogs we passed, and in group play she romped with other dogs and politely greeted those that didn't want to play. Good girl, Sasha! The Urban Dictionary defines Sasha as a 'warm hearted person', and Wikipedia explains the origin of the name as a 'helper of mankind'. They both really work with our girl who is warm, friendly, social, sweet, and affectionate. (Less)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    A volunteer writes: Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle, wag, wag, wag. Little George is open for business! 1.5 year-old George, a Tootsie roll on four legs, is sweet, silly, and a tiny bit shy. On our first meeting George is initially nervous and reluctant to leave his kennel for our walk despite wag, wag, wagging throughout it all. But after a few kind words and a few delicious treats George is ready to go! Well, almost ready. The shelter's halls prove a bit too scary and George initially 'pancakes' himself on to the ground rather than walk. Fearful though he may seem, however, he continues to wag, wag, wag, and wiggle, wiggle, wiggle even at one point ... (Read More)rolling over for a belly rub! I decide the most efficient way to get sweet George out and on to playing is to carry our Tootsie roll like the babe that he is. I scoop all 40 lbs of him into my arms and he gives my cheek a quick slurrrrp as thanks. Free in a pen George sheds every hesitation and relaxes into the true, young pup that he is. He savors every treat and sniffs every toy and flops over once more for a belly rub. For our return George is now emboldened and walks without worry back through the shelter's doors. On approaching his kennel he has one moment of pause, looking up at me 'It's OK?' 'It is,' I say rubbing his head, and he happily hops inside. Sweet, silly, and a tiny bit shy, George needs only the right hand to guide him and show him the ways of the world. Could that be you? Best fit: Single and couples; Families with kids, we would prefer 5+. Email ThePolishedPitbull@gmail.com to find out more about meeting GEORGE. His adoption fee is $150.00 and every adoption starts as a two week trial 'sleepover' to ensure a good fit. Better yet, fill out the ONLINE application to adopt GEORGE at www.thepolishedpitbull.com We make this promise...you will hear back from us within HOURS. (Less)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed 

    Nena is a chubby little grey mouse of a dog, weighing about 50 lbs. She could stand to lose a few lbs. We are looking for a female couple for Nena, or a single woman. Why? Nena watched as her former male owner 'disciplined' the 5 kids in the house and she bit the owner on the wrist in an effort to protect the children. The bite did not require a visit to a doctor or hospital. He dumped his children's best friend at the NYC Shelter. We felt that Nena did not deserve to lose her life. She is housetrained, paper trained, lived happily with another small MALE dog (prefers small MALE dogs) and a cat, is friendly to all, knows 'sit', 'stay' ... (Read More)and 'come'. She makes wonderful eye contact as we take some photos, sits when I ask her to and takes treats gently. She's an adorable dog, sweet and social, giving a little woof from time to time to remind us that she was there. Loves a walk, loves to be with you. Email ThePolishedPitbull@gmail.com to find out more about meeting NENA. Her adoption fee is $150.00 and every adoption starts as a two week trial 'sleepover' to ensure a good fit.

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Bella is a nearly 3 1/2 year old American Stafford Terrier / Boxer / Afghan Hound mix (we've had her DNA tested) who weighs around 75 pounds. We adopted her from a shelter when she was 4 months old. She has a redish/brown short hair with minimum shedding. She has been spayed, is up to date on all her shots, and has been micro-chipped. She has gone through obedience training with two private trainers in our home and is well trained on all basic commands and leash walking. She is crate trained and house trained and does very well for even long periods of time without any accidents. We have had no chewing problems and she demonstrates no ... (Read More)destructive behavior. She is invisible fence trained as well. She is a quiet dog that only barks on occasion or when strangers enter the house. She has a medium energy level and is as happy laying at your feet as she is going for a walk. When she is active she is very athletic and would probably be good at agility training. She is a very loyal dog who always enjoys being around her master. Unfortunately, we have to find a new home for her because she is very anxious, guarded, and growls around young children under 6. We have four children with one being four years old and have a neighborhood full of young kids. We have also experienced some guarding issues around food. Given that we have worked with her for over two years, with a variety of methods, without any improvement we have no choice but to give her up to a good home without small children. She would be a perfect dog for a single person, couple, or family with teenage kids. Please help us find an equally wonderful home for this wonderful dog. (Less)

    Hello, I found a very skinny pitbull running around my neighborhood. I think he's a blue pit. He has fleas which I'm bathing him for, but it looks as if he has been chewing himself and has a good bit of scabs. I unfortunately am not allowed to have dogs where we are renting, and can not afford to be kicked out with my two month old son. My landlord has gave me a week to find him a home. He seems like a really nice dog, hasn't done anything wrong no growling snapping etc. He was also by a neighbor's dogs two males and a female and didn't try to fight or anything. he has also been around their young kids and also my two month old with no ... (Read More)problems. I've had him scanned for a chip and he has no license. From what I see it looks like he is neutered already as well. If you could please help, I'd hate to take him to a shelter and risk him not getting a home and being put to sleep, and I definitely don't want to just let him run around and risk being hit by a car.please help this big Love bug.

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Miss Maple is a pittie mix, about 1 1/2 years old and 41 lbs. Maple loves playing with other dogs, and her ideal home will have another dog (her size or larger) to romp and play with in a fenced yard. She will love a home with her person around most of the time so she can get the exercise needed for a young, active girl. Maple is house and crate trained, and does great in her crate when no one is home and even through the night. This young lady adores her people and is looking forward to meeting you!

Rescue Me ID: 16-07-06-00770Ella (female)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Very High Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Needs Vaccinations 

    Ella is approx 1 year old pit mix. She is an extremely loving dog 1on 1. She loves to play, chase sticks, swim, take naps and dig up rocks. Ella is in need of a home due to the following: She has been aggressive towards my 10 year old dog 2x in the last month. She is best to be an only dog in a pretty quiet household with someone who has time and dominant personality to keep her in line. She is an Alpha dog. I took her out of a bad situation in order to find her a good home. She is a great watchdog...and if she weren't aggressive towards my older dog I would keep her. She definitely needs ROOM TO RUN as well. She has been spoiled since I've ... (Read More)had her, so I would like someone else to do the same. I would recommend no very small children because she is rough even when she doesn't mean to be. She is VERY strong....physically and behaviorally. My older dog ended up in the ER for stitches as a result of their last confrontation., so I need to rehome her ASAP. (Less)

Animal ID: 16-06-30-00522Nalla (female)

American Staffordshire Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Needs Vaccinations, Fearful/Anxious 

    Nalla is an extremely loving brindle pit bull. She was my daughter's dog, but she is having major life issues and cannot care for her. I have had her for over six months and just got a promotion at work. I also live somewhere where I can no longer stay with her. I am having a very difficult time finding a place to move and still keep her. I work too many hours to properly care for a dog. This is breaking my heart. She is very affectionate, but also can be quite protective of her owner, which she knows sees as me. My daughter has had her since she has been six weeks old and she really is part of our family. I just can't keep putting my life ... (Read More)on hold because of Nalla. I love her to death but she shouldn't be crated 10 hours a day while I work. I would prefer to have someone foster her until my daughter gets her life put back together, but I have no idea how soon that will be. If I could please find someone to foster her instead of having to loose her all together; that would be my ideal situation.She is afraid of thunder and rain. She is not aggressive unless scared or threatened. She needs a stable environment with someone thAt can give her the attention she deserves. Nalla thinks she is a lap dog and loves to snuggle. She can have a high energy level at times,she loves to run and play. It does take a little while for her to adapt to being around other dogs, but currently shares a home with another female pit/lab mix. She does have separation anxiety and does not do well being left alone. (Less)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very Low Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    ELIA is a dog who has been bred more times than I am sure she cared to be bred, which is why she doesn't like other dogs. She adores every person she meets though and wants nothing more than to be at your side forever. She was a favorite of the shelter staff at CCSPCA in Vineland...found as a street stray with cuts all over her, she was pregnant to boot. Now all of her puppies have been adopted, it's Elia's turn. Since she loves nothing more than lying on the sofa, or on the deck in the sun, she would be a perfect pet for a retired couple who have a fenced yard and want to give this Mommy dog the love and care she has only now started to ... (Read More)receive in her life....she is so deserving...will you be the one(s)? I would absolutely trust her with your grandkids too.Email ThePolishedPitbull@gmail.com to find out more about meeting ELIA or better yet, apply to adopt ELIA online at www.thepolishedpitbull.com We make every effort to get back to applicants within 24 hours, sometimes less.
