American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    There's just something about a set of perfect ears on a dog that always bring a smile to my face!! Meet Kendrick, he's a happy little guy, about 2 yrs, weighing in at a solid 46 pounds. Kendrick's stocky little body is sporting some fiercely cute ears and a face you can't help but fall in love with!! Kendrick was scheduled to die last week but we managed to pull him, thanks to a foster volunteer. He has been doing well, and getting along with other dogs. He has also been perfection with all of the children he has met. We aren't sure how he responds to cats, but will be happy to test him. Kendrick is an energetic guy, he needs daily ... (Read More)walks, or a fenced in yard to run and play in. He is very intelligent and receptive to commands, making him a highly trainable dog - for anyone willing to work with him. He would be great at agility of any kind, or just learning new tricks to entertain you. He could be the world's next 'Pet Star' if he wanted but Kendrick is perfectly happy with being your shinning star. That's all any pet wants. If you are interested in bringing Kendrick into your family, please apply online at www.RuralAnimalRescueEffort.org/adopt-foster (Less)

    Demon is an 8.5 year old male pitbull that I hand raised. I let my daughter take him when I had to live somewhere that did not allow bulldogs. Her boyfriend has been abusive to him, and when I found out I went and rescued him. If my landlord finds out he is here I will be homeless. He loves women, but is somewhat fearful of children and does not like most men. He would be best suited to a home with no other pets. He is intelligent and housebroke.

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Malnourished 

    This girl is very friendly and loving, she has been great with my 2 young kids since we've had her. She is energetic but also just relaxes. She listens pretty well to commands. She does nibble a bit on toys but i think she can be phased out of that with training. She needs a home while i can still keep her with us, or else i will have to take her to the memphis animal shelter as all other shelters and rescues say they are full. The memphis animal shelter is a kill shelter and as she does have some pit bull in her she is more likely to be euthanized.

    Shadow found herself at the shelter after her owner passed away. She came in along with 4 other Am Staffs, however, although she got along with those dogs well, she is a dominant female so we would suggest a home where she is an only pet. She is afraid of small children but teenagers are fine. Shadow is protective of her people, and always wants to be by your side.

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    BECKA spent most of her first years of life either pregnant or nursing. The people in the town where she was found said she had litter after litter of pups. She would hang out at a school where she was fed by the school nurse and would play with the children. When she had her last litter, she ended up on the property of a man who said he was going to shoot her and her 6 nursing pups which is when the rescue was finally contacted and able to intervene. Becka's pups were weaned and have since been adopted. Now it is Becka's turn to find a good forever home. She is a black and white AST mix who is 2 to 3 years old and weighs 62 pounds. ...

She tested positive for heartworm when first rescued but has completed treatment to rid her of heartworms, and she is now expected to be heartworm negative. She gets along well with the other dogs at her foster home, but she is not good with cats, so a cat-free home is recommended. She has a sweet personality. She likes to talk and is friendly with both adults and children. She will be microchipped prior to adoption. If you live in another state, don't let that stand in your way. We will work to transport Becka if it means she will have a good forever home.

    BANDIT is an adorable one to two year old AST mix male who is sure to steal your heart. He was picked up as a stray by Animal Control in Union City, NW TN. He was not clamed by an owner and so he was rescued in order to save his life. He now needs to find a forever home. He is a stout boy and weighs 70 pounds. He tested negative for heartworm. He is vaccinated and neutered. Bandit is very energetic but, with strong leadership, he will obey. He will benefit from a bit of training as he does tend to jump up on people. Until he is trained not to jump, he would do best in a home without toddlers since he would possibly knock them over. ... (Read More)Bandit is a very sweet boy and listens very well when handled with a firm but loving approach. If you live in another state, don't let that stand in your way. We will work to transport Bandit if it means he will have a good forever home. If you are another rescue group, we will waive the adoption fee but you can make a donation toward vetting at your discretion. The adoption fee will help our 501(c)3 non-profit rescue to cover part of the cost of the veterinary care he has received and a microchip. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-01-31-00106Priscilla (female)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

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

    PRISCILLA has overcome a lot to get where she is today. She may have lived on the streets for a while and was not in good shape when she was first rescued. She had surgery for hernia repair that most likely resulted from a bad pregnancy and trying to push out a litter of pups. She tested light heartworm positive and will be receiving treatment for that. She is current on vaccinations, microchipped and spayed. She weighs 45 pounds. She is friendly with humans of all ages 8 and above. We have not observed her with children below 8 years. She has a dominant, alpha personality and does not get along with too many other dogs. For this ... (Read More)reason, we feel she would do best as an only dog. She did not like her paws being touched or held, however she is making progress with that through training and otherwise, she loves being petted. She is not too clingy but likes attention and affection from people. Her perfect home would be as an only dog with a stay-at-home person or someone who stays close to home but would let Priscilla go with them. She likes car rides and she is energetic for a 7 year old. She needs someone who will take the needed time to teach her some manners since she did live as a stray for a while. If you live in another state, don't let that stand in your way. We will work to transport Priscilla if it means she will have a good forever home. If you are another rescue group, we will waive the adoption fee but you can make a donation toward vetting at your discretion. The adoption fee will help our 501(c)(3) non-profit rescue to cover part of the cost of the veterinary care she has received. (Less)

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    KoKo is a sweet chocolate AST mix who is sure to warm your heart. He has a dark brown coat with a spotty white patch on his chest. Through no fault of his own, this playful and friendly dog finds himself in need of a new home. His previous family loved him, but a change in their health and living situation made it necessary for them to ask our help in finding KoKo a new home. He needs a home where he will have people to love, plenty of room and a yard where he can play. Like most bigger dogs, he does best when he gets regular exercise. He is good with children as well as adults. He gets along with other dogs. He is a volunteer ... (Read More)favorite because he is always up for some fun and love.
