American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Hello My name is Paris and I was rescued from a horrible past in SC where I was starving to death trying to keep my 6 puppies alive. I was taken from an abusive and miserable home and ended up at a shelter in rural SC with my 6 tiny puppies. One day this nice lady came and took me for a long road trip, I have no idea how I went from one end of the spectrum to the other but I certainly love my new life. I am only about a year old and despite my miserable past I still love every person, child, dog and cat that I meet, as a matter of fact I love making new friends. I have gained more than 8 lbs since the ladies at VPFP rescued me, my foster mom ... (Read More)feeds me 6 small meals a day of some super yummy food. My puppies went to stay with other friends so that I could focus on getting me healthy again. I trust that they are in good hands and although I love my puppies, I am SOOO glad that I can live peacefully and have a chance to be someones baby for once. I have learned that I have to go outside to go potty and mommy gives me treats when I come back in. When mom leaves I go in my kennel and take a nap and I do not mind it one bit. I know how to sit and I am working on other tricks but right now my main focus is just to gain weight and get healthy so that I can find my forever home. I enjoy car rides, snuggling with my foster mommy and the other dogs and lying in the grass soaking up the sun on a warm fall day. I will be spayed in a month or two so that I do not ever have to have anymore puppies and then I will be ready to be adopted. Mom says I am perfect, I am not sure what that means but I plan to keep doing it so that I keep getting spoiled and loved on. (Less)

American Staffordshire Terrier    Age: Young Adult

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

    Petra loves to be with her people or her pack buddies. When watching TV, she will sit or lay on the floor at your feet the entire time. She is a great snuggler in bed and will definitely keep you warm in the wintertime! She likes to get out for a quick and short walk, loves laying in the grass on her belly and getting a little sun. She also loves car rides and will sit or lay calmly the entire time. She loves her pack buddy, which is a Staffy puppy. He has taught Petra how to play which she did not know how to do when we first got her. She loves hanging out with the puppy and another pit mix as the Pit Crew (picture attached)! Petra will ... (Read More)do best with a canine buddy who is calm and laid back. I can only imagine the life Petra had before she came to VPFP. Just looking into her teary eyes, you see such a hard life, it will just break your heart. While she is housetrained, she may not have received much time in a house. She did not know what the TV was and she didn't know what to do with toys or chewies (but now loves them!) She has showed no people aggression towards food, toys, etc. She does very well meeting new people. When first looking at Petra, she appears to be in such bad shape with her hip out of joint. Clearly, it has been like this for awhile and she has gotten used to it because she can get around and when she wants to move she can. While she can manage stairs, it would be best to be in a single story house until she is completely healed unless you plan to carry her up and down the stairs. She's got a ways to go but anyone willing to put in the patience and time for her rehabilitation will find themselves with an excellent dog. Approximately 1-3 years old, 50 pounds (6/10/2014) (Less)

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    If you are looking for a playful, cuddly bundle of cuteness, then I'm the dog for you! My name is Dexter. So friendly with a happy, outgoing personality. They say I am an Am Staff mix. I am not sure about that because I am kind of low to the ground & compact at 40 pounds, I am the perfect size for playing, followed by a good snuggle on the sofa. Oh yes, EVERYONE says my ears are adorable. Someone dumped me in the street. I was really scared and hungry. But, a nice lady took me home and took care of me. Now, I am waiting for my forever family. I am about 5 years old, housetrained, good with other dogs (I live with Pomeranians), but I ... (Read More)really can not live with cats. I am neutered, have had all of my shots and am heartworm/Lyme negative. Please, if you would love my sweetness forever, contact my human friends at pals@psknet.com for an adoption application, (Less)

Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
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.

Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current

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)
