Rescue Me ID: 15-04-12-00434Kwan (female)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Kwan is one of most sweet and affectionate dogs you'll ever meet. She will hop right into your lap for snuggles, kiss your face off, and be your shadow. Kwan wants nothing more than a loving, forever family to call her own. When we rescued her from a shelter, she was very pregnant. Because shelters do not have the resources for proper labor/delivery and neonatal care of puppies, Kwan's future looked bleak. We scooped her up and gave her a safe place to have her puppies. Soon after, all of her puppies were adopted, but poor Mama Kwan was left waiting. She's still waiting! Approximately 3-5 years old (3/2015) Virginia Paws for Pits is a ...

    If you are looking for a playful, cuddly, bundle of cuteness, then I am the dog for you! My name is Dexter, and they say that I am an Am Staff mix.

Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    I have had Tank for 3 years and he is a big baby that loves to give kisses and play ball. He has never been around cats. He is around my other 4 dogs, but my min pin has been showing signs of aggression towards Tank. They now have to be separated all the time, which is not a healthy situation. I want Tank to go to a loving home where someone can spend quality time with him. He does sleep in the bed with me and he has a doggy door. We have a fenced in yard, although he does great on a leash & harness. He does not eat table food as he has a very sensitive stomach. Purina small bites and milk bones is all he gets. He loves my 3 yr old ... (Read More)granddaughter. He is however a little timid on meeting new people. He has NEVER bit anyone. I do not want him to go to a home where he will be chained outside.

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Male Dogs Only, Not Good with Cats 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    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 ... (Read More)to chase small animals for food, a home with cats would probably not be a good idea. 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 ...

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)
