Rescue Me ID: 15-02-22-00568VALENTINE (female)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    VALENTINE was saved from San Antonio Animal Care Services as one of our traditional Anniversary saves. She was scheduled to be killed and was looking up with those beautiful pleading eyes. She had demodex mange that has been treated and needed to gain some weight. VALENTINE came back to the rescue and her true personality started to shine. Her tail never stops wagging, she runs and plays with the other dogs, she lies as close to the bed as she can do, she walks beside me when I am outside with them all, she gives the sweetest kisses. VALENTINE is looking for a family that is not prejudice against her breed, she is looking for a family that ... (Read More)has friends and goes to wonderful places that just love all of the creatures put on this earth and will take her for the true sweet soul that she is. VALENTINE is very gentle and loving and I think she would make an excellent family pet. We do not have cats at the rescue so I cannot say how she would behave around cats, but at the rescue she lives with 50 dogs, mainly German Shepherds and a few small dogs and small puppies and just loves them all. VALENTINE is spayed, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heart-worm negative and micro-chipped. She has an estimated date of birth of 11 February 2011 and at the time of rescue weighed around 40 pounds, but does need to gain some weight. VALENTINE is available for adoption through Give a Dog a Home, German Shepherd Dog Rescue for an adoption fee of $170. Although LOCATED in TEXAS we are using Rescue Road Trips LLC. and P.E.T.S. LLC, both highly reputable animal rescue transport companies to re-locate our dogs from rescue to meet their families along the East Coast (This allows us to save more dogs from the high rate kill shelters here in Texas). These are private companies and their transport fee's (which is paid directly to them) are $175 and $185 per dog. This fee is in addition to what you would pay the rescue for the adoption fee. Our adoption process and application can be found on the website under the APPLICATION tab.

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 

    INKY was saved from San Antonio Animal Care Services. She was one of our traditional anniversary saves. INKY is a beautiful, loving girl. She is very affectionate and is very responsive. She does get a little bit jealous of the other dogs, but then she is living amongst 50 other dogs who all want my attention, however, this would be something to keep an eye on should any other pets be in the home. She has never been aggressive, just given warning growls. INKY is fairly active, being only 2 years old she would love a family that can take her to places to explore and take in the sights and smells of the world. INKY will need some training ... (Read More)and this is good for the family to set boundaries and guidelines of what is expected from her. INKY is house-trained in that we have a doggy-door that she uses. We do NOT have any cats in the rescue so are unable to say how she is with cats. INKY is spayed, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heart-worm tested negative and microchipped. She weighs around 40 pounds and has been given a date of birth of 12 February 2012. INKY is available for adoption through Give a Dog a Home, German Shepherd Dog Rescue for an adoption fee of $170.

    Luke is a handsome 6 year old pit mix who is just looking for a family to love.

He is extremely loyal to those who get to know him but he is also very open to making new friends. Luke gets along with cats and dogs however he has a dominant dog personality and would need an experienced dog owner if Luke is to successfully ... (Read More)co-exist with other dogs. Luke loves playing with his toys and he is very good about sharing his toys with people. He would love to snuggle up to you with his favorite toy in his mouth and fall asleep. He knows 'sit/stay/get your toy' and his people pleasing personality would make him a perfect dog to teach new tricks and commands!

American Staffordshire Terrier    Age: Puppy

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

    Neutered male, loving, well trained, obedient to some commands, i.e. wait, sit, stay. Rides well, housebroke, playful but not 'puppy' destructive. Came to me from owner who could no longer care for her pack of 7 dogs. I took this beautiful animal in. However, my two are too old to tolerate a puppy. They are aggressive to him. His heart worm test is negative, I had his rabies vaccine and will gladly get his other vaccinations with proof for a RESPONSIBLE inquirer. This dog is truly amazing and I wish I could keep him. But it isn't fair to him.

    Need to rehome american Staffordshire mix. His name is Red and he is about 2 yrs old. Neutered and up to date on vaccines. He also has a very mild heart murmur. Could possibly go away but nothing to worry about right now. He would work best in a home with no other dogs. Unsure about cats. He adores children. He knows his basic commands but still working on his jumping. He is shy at first, he came from a home where he was abused and left outside for 'protection'. He is crate trained and house broken. He does have separation anxiety so a crate is a must when you are not home. Please let me know if you are interested. Rehoming fee does apply

Rescue Me ID: 15-01-27-00405Reagan (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered 

    Hello! I'm Reagan, and I'm busy searching for my forever home! Is it you? I'm keeping very busy in foster care but I would love to meet you! First things first: I'm an American Staffordshire Terrier mix, and I even had a DNA test to prove it! I have glossy black furs with tiny bits of white, and I weigh about 60 pounds. I'm about two years old, so that means I'm all grown up. But I'm much more than just a handsome face! I am crate trained, and that's where I spend the days when my foster momma is at the office. I trot right in and get to work on a food toy or puzzle. That's how I eat all of my food, and it helps keep my mind sharp. I am ... (Read More)learning some cues like sit, down, 'load up' (for getting in the car!) and 'touch' (to tap a target). The training is important because it helps me bond with my person and relax in new places. I am also working hard on my loose leash walking, and even though foster momma walks SO slow, I am getting pretty good at it! Housetraining was easy for me, and I never even had one accident. Some of my favorite things include playing in water, destroying tennis balls and stuffed toys, and rolling in dry grass. I also have a soft spot for snuggles. Some of my LEAST favorite things include rude dogs, busy places, and male strangers. Sometimes, if a new person surprises me on a walk or in my house, I will bark at them. This is my way of saying 'Stay back! I'm nervous!' Foster momma is crazy, though, and she seems to love all people. We do a fun game where a new person appears, and then I get delicious treats! Slowly but surely I am changing my mind about strangers. I really hope my forever family will play that game too, because it helps me feel more comfortable, and I get great treats! My ideal home will be with a person or people who are SO excited to learn about dog training and do lots of activities with me. Have you ever wanted to try K9 Nosework or Agility, or even Flyball? I might be your dog! Or maybe you like camping and backpacking? I bet I would be great at that. I would love a fenced yard to do zoomies in, but if you don't have one, just be prepared to help me exercise in other ways. I think I would be ok with human siblings age 8 and up, but I would probably like to be your only furry child. Other dogs are just fine on walks or in training class, but I don't really want to interact with them personally all the time. I am living in Charlottesville, Virginia right now, but the right person is much more important than geography. If you're in love with my sweet face (and high IQ!) fill out an application to adopt me! $175.00 adoption donation helps us take care of all the dogs we rescue. All dogs are spayed/neutered, tested for heartworm and tick borne diseases, microchipped and vaccinated for rabies, distemper/parvo and bordetella. They are also treated for internal and external parasites if needed. Many dogs also receive extensive medical care such as surgeries and dentals.

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    Is anybody out there looking for a one and a half year old, mellow Retriever-Pit mix? All dogs here at the shelter are my friends, I like everything and everybody, but I'm terribly sad here. I'm more a thinker than a participater. What I enjoy most is to sit with people, cuddle and sweet talk. I listen to every word people say to me desperately hoping some day someone will take me home. What I really need now is gentle care, a lot of love and someone to teach me right from wrong in a loving, patient way. Please have time for me I don't want to be alone anymore. To meet me, please call 804-695-7772.

    Hi, I'm one and a half years old but I look much younger due to neglect. The people at the shelter tell me I'm a smart, sweet, medium energy little girl, I'm eager to learn and I try to do everything right. When people talk to me I love to listen to their words patiently and try to figure out what is expected of me. More than playing with other dogs, I like to be around people to watch them and learn from them, but I get along with all dogs big or small. So far I've learned 'heel' and I'm very good at it, I can do 'down' and I also do 'roll over'. If you would enjoy to teach me more nice doggie behavior that I get praised for and if you'd ...

    This beautiful girl is Bonnie who is about 7-8 months old. She is a lovely shade of blue with grey eyes. Her fur is like velvet and she has fairly short legs. She has had a very rough life. Bonnie and her brother Clyde lived outdoors through heat, wind, and rain. They had no food, very little water, and no medical care. Only five months old, Bonnie and Clyde were slowly starving to death. Luckily, they were rescued and got the medical attention and vaccinations needed. Despite her horrible past, Bonnie has bounced back and put on weight. She has a very sweet personality. This friendly girl likes people and other dogs. Since she had ...

She needs to find an indoor home where she will get a soft bed, good food, and the comfort of loving arms. Her ideal home might also have a medium or large laid-back male dog to keep her company. Can you give Bonnie the chance to become the dog she is meant to be? She will repay you with adoring gazes, happy tail wags, and love always. Please apply to adopt Bonnie today. (Less)

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Reeses is a fun loving clown. His favorite thing to do is jump. He would be great for agility or a runner who needs a partner. Learning tricks comes easy for this smart special boy. He does the 'commando crawl', sit, down, shake hands, roll over among other things. He loves the clicker and playing with a box. Reeses is crate trained and house trained. Despite being abandoned, he loves people but is too energetic for young children. Older children would be a better match. Playing with other dogs is something that he could do all day long. Cats are another story. He thinks of them as squeaky toys and therefore shouldn't be adopted to anyone ... (Read More)with cats.

    Angel is a very sweet 7 yr. old female American Staffordshire Terrier. She is spayed, microchipped, and current on vaccinations. She weighs 61 lbs. and wants to be a lap dog. She is crate trained, house trained and knows sit, down, stay, and her left and right.

She was abandoned by her irresponsible owner with her 10 one-week old puppies. Her pups have been adopted, but not her. She desperately wants her 'forever' home. Angel needs a family who ...

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Reese was due to be put down within hours of being pulled from a shelter in NC in April 2012. She was heartworm positive and very sick. She is completely healthy now and microchipped, spayed, and up-to-date on vaccinations. She is a Terrier/Hound mix around 3 years old and about 40 lbs. She is dog reactive and would benefit from training to help her overcome her fear of other dogs. She has not been around cats, so we're not sure how she would act. Reese has been around children ages 2-17 years and does fine with them. However, we probably would not recommend a home with small children because she does have a lot of energy. She tends to jump ... (Read More)up on people, which we are working on. She is crate and housetrained. Reese needs to go a home with a family who is active because she loves to run with her foster mom. She does well on a leash. She loves to play, but also loves to cuddle. Reese is a survivor and looking for her forever family. If you are that special family, please call Esther or Dallas at 757-583-8777 or e-mail rainbowanimalrescue@cox.net. (Less)
