Rescue Me ID: 18-01-20-00112Bandit (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    BANDIT is an adorable 3 to 4 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. He was recently diagnosed with a thyroid problem and will need to remain on medication for that. Because of his thyroid issue, he gained weight and currently weighs 80 pounds. He is now on a diet and thyroid medication and so weight loss is expected. He has some ligament damage in one ... (Read More)knee which should be helped by weight loss but he may go on to have stiffness and arthritis in that knee. He is heartworm negative. 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 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)

She has been spayed and is up-to-date on shots and has been on Trifexis for heartworm prevention. Zoey is very affectionate and loves people. She would do well in an active family & would excel at agility training. She is very intelligent. She is being rehomed because she and our other dog are not getting along. Zoey needs to be with someone who knows more about the pitty breed and how to work with her. Zoey is a great dog.

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Good day! My name is Vienna and I was abandoned in a rural area of Tennessee. I am now in a foster home, doing fantastic with house training and loving all the attention I am getting! I am about 2 years old (as of 4-4-17) and weigh 47 pounds. I love humans, especially children. With proper introductions, I like other dogs too. I usually just want to lick their faces! However, I can be reactive, so if there are other dogs around, I need them to be more submissive in nature. (RARE said they would do the introductions to make sure we all get along great.) I am curious about cats, so I'm still trying to figure out if they should be in my family ... (Read More)or not. Please ask when applying for me if I have gotten more familiar with them. I absolutely LOVE all people and every time I get pet or loved on. It is so amazing to be free and I show how grateful I am every day. My adoption fee is $85.00. I am spayed, up to date on vaccines and microchipped. Apply for me today at RuralAnimalRescueEffort.org! **An application and home visit/meet & greet are required** **All of our pets are or will be spayed/neutered, up to date on all vaccines and micro-chipped prior to adoption. Please complete the application on our website and we will call you to answer any questions you may have.** Our adoption fees not only help the animal being adopted, but they also help to cover heart-worm treatments and other treatable ailments that many animals, that would otherwise be euthanized, need to be made available for adoption. Thank you for choosing to adopt, foster, or aid in the rescue efforts of RARE! Please visit www.RuralAnimalRescueEffort.org for foster and adoption applications or for additional information. ***Please Note*** The breeds noted are guesses on the part of the volunteers of RARE based on the physical characteristics of the particular animal.

    Hi everybody! I'm Abby! I weigh about 32 pounds and am a Beagle and American Staffordshire Terrier mix. I am approximately 1 year old as of 7-11-17. I do have a lot of energy and would probably not do well with cats or other small animals since I have a high prey drive and love to chase. I am an absolute sweetheart and adore human attention. I love to play and run. I am good with other dogs as long as they understand that I have a lot of energy and I love to play. If you have another dog that loves to play, then I would be a great match! My adoption fee is $125.00. I am spayed, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped. *PLEASE ...

    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 $85.00 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. If you have any trouble, please email us at RuralAnimalRescueEffort@gmail.com Please allow us at least 24 hours to respond, as we are a volunteer based organization with full time jobs in addition to rescue. If you do not hear from us within 72 hours, please feel free to email us at RuralAnimalRescueEffort@gmail.com to inquire on the status of your application. **An application and home visit are required.
