Rescue Me ID: 17-02-15-00388Lilith/Lily (female)

American Staffordshire Terrier    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Male Dogs Only, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Lilith is a beautiful blue and white pit bull type dog. She has lots of energy, but a robust walk/run/joy mixed with a game of fetch or tug of war will make her a couch potato! She has retrieve and release commands for toys, sits down and waits for the OK to eat her food, sits well, and is working on down/stay with food motivation. Lilith has been a wonderful companion to our pitXbullmastiff mix, but she does not get along with our beagle, and a recent fight has meant that we can no longer keep her or allow her to interact with the other female. PLEASE help us keep Lily out of shelters by offering her a new forever home! We will supply a ... (Read More)leash, harness, food bowl, and a MASSIVE crate (she is crate trained due to some chewing habits when we're at work), toys... you name it! We have had her since she was a pup, and she is a truly friendly, wonderful dog who just needs a human who wants to play or sit around with her. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-02-14-00377Rascal (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Female Dogs Only, Not Good with Cats 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Rascal is very protective of our family, but very good with us. He is playful and loves to go on walks. He enjoys being near people. He's very social. He does not do well with cats. He is aggressive with some strangers, but not all. He seems to notice our body language before barking and growling. If we're happy, he wags his tail, but if it is a stranger to us, he tends to show his teeth. He has never bitten anyone, just growled and barked. We recently became foster parents, so we cannot have this breed in our home.

Rescue Me ID: 17-01-18-00241Lucy (female)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi, my name is Lucy and I'm 4 years old. Two years ago I was rescued by a wonderful retired couple. I bonded very quickly with my daddy, we were always together, like peanut butter and jelly. Sometimes when my parents had to go somewhere, they would take me to doggy daycare, so I wouldn't get lonely. I loved it there, I made many doggie friends and always used good manners like my daddy taught me. One day my mama and daddy decided to take a vacation. They dropped me off at my day care kennel for boarding, gave me hugs and kisses...my daddy never came back for me. When my mama came for me, she told me something very tragic happened and my ... (Read More)daddy was never coming home again. I lost the sparkle in my eyes that day. It's just been me, mama and my favorite grandbabies since then. I love them, and they love me, but I was daddy's little girl and I still miss him. A few weeks ago mama hurt her back and has to have surgery, she can no longer physically take care of me. She sent out pleas for help because she didn't want me going to a kill shelter. My mama cried as a nice lady picked me up two days before the surgery. I cried too, because now I've lost what was left of my family. The nice lady can only keep me a very short time and she asked Miss Trisha for help. Miss Trisha said RARE will help me find my new family, but I need a foster home first. Thank you Miss Trisha, I haven't met you yet but when I do, mucho kisses for you!! Now I need to ask for help from all of you, can you help me get the sparkle back in my eyes?? I've made a list of Things About Me below to help you learn more about me. My name is Lucy, I am 4 years old. I have a special tag my daddy had made for me, it says I Love Lucy on the backside. My daddy was an excellent carpenter. He made me a beautiful kennel with his very own two hands and it will come with me to my new home. I am told I'm a Pointer/Staffordshire Terrier blend, possible with a little cattle dog. I know basic commands but wouldn't mind a few refresher courses to perfect my skills. I listen well and follow directions. I'm house trained and good on a leash. I love to ride in the car with you, I'm a very good passenger. I show a lot of interest in cats, so it's probably best if I'm not around them. I am great with other dogs, but bashful at first, I need to be introduced properly. I love kids. I bond quickly to my person, I like to be with you or where I can see or hear you. I am extremely smart and loving. I like to kiss a lot. I'm not hyper but I am active, I like to play, I need room to run. I prefer to eat my meals without a canine audience but I don't mind at all if my people want to hang around while I eat. I love peanut butter. I will go in a kennel but will cry. Last time my daddy put me in a kennel he never came back, I'm very fearful of them now but do ok if the door is left open. If you can foster me, or would like to adopt me, please contact RARE at ruralanimalrescueeffort@gmail.com or you can fill out a foster or adoption application at www.ruralanimalrescueeffort.org/adopt-foster If you can't foster or adopt, will you please share my story. I know someone is looking for a special girl just like me. Thank you Miss Carla for the photos. Wags and Kisses, Lucy Lucy's adoption fee is $175.00. **An application and home visit are required. Transport can potentially be arranged to approved homes. Please ask us for more information if you are not in Tennessee** **All of our pets are or will be spayed/neutered, up to date on all vaccines and micro-chipped prior to adoption.

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    IZZY is a beautiful Staffie/American Bulldog mix female who her foster describes as an absolutely gorgeous and silly girl with big, expressive green eyes. She was formerly known as Gracie and had been used to produce litter after litter of puppies that were sold locally. When the person breeding her no longer needed her, she was tossed out. She was picked up by Animal Control and then saved by a local rescue volunteer who has been Izzy's foster ever since. She is a low energy people pleaser who shows no aggression. She does well with kids and has been around children age 8 and above. Izzy would do great hanging out on a couch or in ... (Read More)front of a fireplace. She is house and crate trained and knows simple commands. Izzy is 3 years old and weighs 63 pounds. She has been vetted vaccinated and spayed. She will be microchipped prior to adoption. She is heartworm positive and will be completing the treatment needed to rid her of heartworm. If you live in another state, don't let that stand in your way. We will work to transport Izzy 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 to cover at least part of the cost of the veterinary care this dog has received. (Less)

Health: Needs to be Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    Meet Rocky! Rocky is one of two male puppies we allowed our kids to keep from a litter. He has primarily been raised by an eleven yr old boy with some help from us. We are busy with soccer, school, and work so Rocky spends a lot of time in a kennel. He doesn't get along with small animals such as rabbits and cats. He gets along with our two females and neutered male but he does not, all of a sudden, get along with his brother. He just wants to attack him. He's obedient and submissive to humans. He turns one on January 30th and we really want to see our Rocky go to a loving home with people willing to rehabilitate him properly. He also has a ... (Read More)kennel. (Less)

    Hey guys and gals, I'm Max! I'm so happy to be here! I am about 1 year old American Staffordshire Terrier and I absolutely love people. I am currently in a wonderful foster home with my foster mom and dad and other dogs. I've also been around children and was very well mannered. I am great on leash and good around other dogs, especially with the ladies. I have had great success with my house training and in a routing with crate training and I only use the 'potty' outside. I am NOT good with chickens and I will hurt them, so please, no chickens! I do fine when the dogs and I are playing outside or in the house, but I do have some barrier ... (Read More)issues, so I don't like when there is a gate, fence or crate between me and another dog. It makes me very upset. However, it is certainly something I can be trained on and work through. Good news! - Whoever adopts me into their family will receive a training session with Nikki Ivey/Dog Speak included with my adoption! Unfortunately, my previous 'owners' kept me in an outside kennel, which is the reason for my barrier issues. Also, as time went on, I started to get so bored and just wanted to be with people, so I escaped my kennel at my old home and killed a neighbor's chicken. My people were so upset that they were planning on shooting me that afternoon. They didn't understand that all I wanted was some attention and love and to not be kept in solitary all day and that many dogs, if given the change, will kill a chicken. I really didn't realize that I did anything wrong, I swear! It was a miracle when a RARE foster agreed to take me in because I had torn my cruciate ligament. Thankfully, now I am able to have surgery to repair it and be able to play again without any pain. I don't have to wait to be adopted, I just need a family to let me rest and recoup for a few weeks before I start to play again. My surgery is scheduled for 1/19/2017, so please send good vibes my way! And don't hesitate to inquire about me and complete the adoption application at RuralAnimalRescueEffort.org! Please apply online at www.rurralanimalreacueeffort.org/adopt-foster. My adoption fee is $200 and a training session with the amazing Nikki Ivey with Dog Speak is included with my adoption (a $200 value)! **Max is up to date on vaccinations and neutered and will be microchipped prior to adoption. Please visit www.RuralAnimalRescueEffort.org for foster and adoption applications or for additional information.

    Ike is a handsome boy that is very loving and needs someone to take a chance on him. he has been in our shelter since July 2015. While he receives great care it is not the same as having a home with people who love and care for him. He is very smart and knows a few basic commands. He needs to learn leash manners. He appears to be house trained as well. He needs someone with patience and someone who is willing to work with him. He has been at the shelter for too long and wants a home. Please help Ike

Cookie is a low maintenance affection seeker. After a few scratches on the head, she will usually flop over when she is ready for you to move on to some belly rubs. She has only been around older kids and has been great with them. Following a slow introduction process, Cookie has done well with a submissive young adult male resident dog, but did not do well with an older reactive dominant male resident dog. Her behavior around cats is unknown. Cookie is crated ... (Read More)trained and remains calm and quiet in her crate. It is unknown if she is house trained at this time but it should be easily accomplished in her new home using her crating skills. She walks pretty well on a leash and only tugs slightly from time to time. Besides affection, Cookie enjoys chew toys, tug toys and sprinting around the yard. She does well when greeting new people and normally keeps all four feet on the floor. She rarely needs correction for jumping up on people. She has also been contained successfully with a standard four foot chain link fence. Cookie has a ton of love to give and is ready to give it all to a person, couple or family searching for a dog like her. (Less)

    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)

    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.

Animal ID: A30852157Shadow (female)

American Staffordshire Terrier    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    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.

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Can you believe I was found running down the side of a highway. So many cars passed me by, a few almost hit me but no one stopped. I was very thin, hungry and weak, my paws were sore and raw but still I continued to run, looking for someone, anyone that would help. Finally it happened, I was saved!! It was a day I will never forget, the food was so good, the blanket was so warm...the gentle touch of human hands...and I was given my very own name....LIAM....best day of my life!! Now I have to tell you, I love my food, I love it a lot, I love to be fed treats and snack from your hand BUT I don't like anyone's hands in my food bowl and I will ... (Read More)guard my kibble, they are working on me with this and I am getting better but I do occasionally forget my table manners, so it's best that I live with no small children. I am up to a perfect 37 pounds and even though I'm not running for my life anymore, I still love to run, I love to run just for the joy of living life and for being safe and loved. If you have a ball in your back yard and you need a doggie to come play fetch with you, look no further and when we are done we can chill out on the couch and take a nap. Don't forget my name is Liam, I'm 2yrs old and I am waiting for you. I am neutered and UTD on my vaccinations. Please apply to adopt me online at http://www.adoptapet.com/rural-animal-rescue-effort-rare/adoption-application-2/ or email ruralanimalrescueeffort@gmail.com and we'll get one to you today! (Less)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    NEMO is hoping that we are successful at FINDING him a good forever home! He is an adorable 2 year old brindle and white staffie mix. He was picked up as a stray in Rives, TN, along with pal, Nina. Nina found a great home, so now it is Nemo's turn. This handsome boy is fully vetted and ready for adoption. Nemo loves to cuddle and is the sweetest baby you will ever meet. His foster reported on a recent vet visit saying he actually sat on the table and waited calmly for the vet to give him a check up. Everyone at the office was impressed with his good behavior. She also says that Nemo is super smart, very loving, extremely patient, and ... (Read More)will make a great companion for some lucky family. He gets along well with his canine friends and is especially popular with the female dogs at his foster home. He passed his cat scan. He was interested in the foster's cat when they met but his attention was easily distracted. He might need to be taught to be gentle if there is a cat inside the home, but he showed no aggression. He is current on vaccinations, microchipped and neutered. He tested negative for heartworm. He weighs around 40 pounds. If you live in another state, don't let that stand in your way. We will work to transport Nemo 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)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
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 3 years old and weighs 62 pounds. She ... (Read More)has been vaccinated, spayed and microchipped. She tested positive for heartworm when first rescued but completed treatment to rid her of heartworms, and she is now testing 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. 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. 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 Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    BANDIT is an adorable 2 to 3 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 is one of several at a good foster home, but would love a home and family of his own. He is on the shorter, stouter side and weighs 61 pounds. He tested negative for heartworm. He is current on vaccinations, microchipped, and neutered. Bandit is energetic but, with strong leadership, he will obey. He does jump when excited so, for that reason, he would do best in a home without toddlers since he would ... (Read More)possibly knock them over. He has done well with the children aged 8 and above at his foster home. 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 at least part of the cost of the veterinary care he has received. (Less)
