Rescue Me ID: 15-04-17-00569  (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Lamar was found after being abandoned with a broken leg. He had surgery and the leg is healed now. Lamar is currently being fostered in a rural area. He loves to run and play in the creek and pond at his foster's home. He stays in a 10x10 kennel when his foster family is away and at night. He does come inside and does very well. Typically he checks things out and then lays down close to someone. He has a Shepherd mix female and 2 pit mix females as his foster siblings. They get along very well. Lamar understands sit, down, come, rollover, wait, and no. He will chase a ball or toy and bring it back (most of the time). He likes to explore his ... (Read More)surroundings and comes back when called. He loves his treats and is a very quick learner. He likes to get in a car or truck any time he finds the door open. He is a little excited during the ride, but we are working to improve that. Currently he would not be good with cats. He does have a strong prey drive with regard to chasing cats, etc. that he finds near the creeks or in the woods. He is not recommended for young children because of his size and enthusiasm which could be overwhelming for children. Lamar is a happy and energetic soul. He will need a person or family that will spend lots of time with him. He likes to be close and will lay by your side. He also needs LOTS of exercise and mental stimulation. I do not think he would be happy or do well if not given this. He does spend time alone while his foster is at work and at night. He is not bothered by this, but he does also get plenty of exercise and attention. A person that understands and has experience with this type of dog would be best for Lamar, along with a fenced yard to keep him safe. (Less)

    Wyatt is an awesome fellow. His story starts out very sad, but we hope to find someone to give his story a happy ending. Wyatt was found along with his brother on a secluded back road. His brother had been hit by a car and died from extensive injuries. Wyatt was a little malnourished and frightened, but otherwise ok. With tender loving care, he has blossomed into a very handsome, playful and loving dog. He loves to drink from the hose pipe. He is quiet and behaved. LOVES car rides. Wyatt understands no, sit, heel, down, stay and will come when he is called. He is good on a leash. Wyatt is very playful with the other dogs near his ... (Read More)age in his foster home.

Health: Vaccinations Current, Heartworm Positive 

    WAYLON is a tall, dark & handsome AST mix male who was picked up as a stray in Union City, TN, and was not claimed by an owner during his hold time at Animal Control. He is currently in boarding so he needs to find a foster or forever home. Waylon has been vetted and vaccinated and will soon be neutered.

We will work to transport Waylon if it means he will have a good forever home. If you are another rescue group, we will waive the ...

Animal ID: D150062George (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier    Age: Young Adult

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

    George's Story.. What a wonderful dog! This beautiful boy wants nothing more than to be near his people. He is about 3 years old and just as full of energy as he can be. Since he just loves to run, he will do best in a fenced yard with an active family who will take him for walks, hikes, etc. He has been child tested with a 2-3 year old and just wanted to lick her to death. We're quite certain me had children in his previous life. It seems he was left to find his own way when Crossville was hit by an unusually bad ice storm. Although he was wearing a bandana, he had no tags and no one has called to claim him. He is good with other ... (Read More)dogs and may be OK with cats, but at this point, his curiosity is pretty strong. Please consider giving this wonderful boy the Forever Home that he deserves :) Video coming soon. This dog is located and fostered in Tennessee. Minimum Adoption Donation $150 in TN, $200 plus transportation fee for out of state adoptions. (Less)

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

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy, Very 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 is now spayed, has regained some much needed weight, now weighing 49 pounds, and is ready to find a forever home. She has a dominant, alpha personality and does not get along with too many other dogs. For this reason, we feel she would do best as an only dog. She does not like her paws being touched or held, but she loves being petted. She is not too clingy ... (Read More)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 very energetic for a 4 year old. She needs someone who will take the needed time to teach her some manners since she did live as a stary 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)

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 

    Ruby would love nothing more than a family to love her and to sit in your lap (but don't tell her she's big, she's sure she's a lapdog). Ruby's prior owners kept her puppies and dumped her at the local shelter, and luckily BCHS was able to pull her on her last day. Ruby is a great dog - she's affectionate, loves to give kisses and play fetch with a tennis ball and appears to be between 2-3 years of age. She loves toys and is learning to sit. Ruby has a lot of energy, so she will need a chance to get out and run. She'd be a great running buddy for runners/joggers. She would be best as an only dog as your lap can only fit one Ruby at a ... (Read More)time. Do you think Ruby could find a place in your lap and heart?
