Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Today was a special day! Two nice ladies came and took me out for a walk! They had passed by my kennel before but they said I had been flying under the radar because I was always hanging out in my igloo out of sight. Today they said was all about me! I had a grand time. I got to play dress-up and walk in the sun. As you can see from my photos, snuggling and lounging in laps is one of my favorite activities. My walker said I had a wonderfully mellow, happy energy. Hearing that made my beautiful smile even bigger. They say I am named after a lady with a famous smile in a painting over in France. I don't know much about that but I do ... (Read More)know that if you give me just a little bit of attention you will get to see MY wonderful smile and my helicopter tail wags. Please can we be best friends and hang out together? Mona Lisa's smile is sure to capture you and you'll fall head over heels in love with this sweet gal! With her gorgeous coat, beautiful eyes, and easy going personality she's the whole package! Mona Lisa is ready to wiggle her way into your heart and home. Approximately 2 years old (3/24/2015) (Less)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed 

    I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, and good with kids. Danica's Story... Danica is one of ADA'S Most Unwanted! Danica is a lovely girl who found herself in a local pound. Danica loves to play and can spend hours on the couch with her Kong! She would love an active family to play with her and take her for walks!

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 

    We picked up our sweet, beautiful Cherokee Rose from a rural high kill shelter in South Carolina. She was saved just hours before her scheduled euthanasia. By the looks of her, Cherokee has had no easy life. She was undoubtedly someone's money-making puppy machine, and she has never had the chance to experience life as a loved and welcomed family pet. She has ligature marks around her neck from dragging a heavy chain, and she was so horribly emaciated it's amazing she was even standing. Despite all this, Cherokee Rose is absolutely the most loving dog you will ever meet. The only thing she wants to do is sit beside you or on your lap. She ... (Read More)craves human attention, and her kind, gentle soul shines through her beautiful eyes when she stares up at you. Cherokee doesn't mind other dogs in the least, but her main focus is soaking up as much love as she can from the people in her life, so she'll do best with dogs that don't ask too much of her. Can you give Cherokee Rose the forever home she deserves? (Less)

    Meet Princess! She is a loving, gentle girl who adores children. I have 4 small ones in my home and she sleeps at the feet of my 5 year old daughter. We have loved fostering her and wish we could keep her. She is housebroken and only asks for the occasional game of tug o war for entertainment. The rest of the day she only wants to cuddle. Princess is soft as velvet and very clean. She also plays nicely with our one year old terrier mix. Donation fee is to pay for her transport from Texas where she was rescued. Could you be Princess's final destination?

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed 

    Meet sweet Hannah! She was saved from NC shelter. Hannah is a sweet, high energy, American Staffordshire Terrier. She is spayed, UTD on vaccinations, and microchipped. She is approximately 2 years old. She is dog selective and how dogs are introduced are extremely important. No small animals of any kind. She does have a friend in one of my dogs if you are looking for the possibility of having 2 dogs. Due to her high energy level and size, small children are not advised. Once trained, this may not be an issue. She is house trained and crate trained. She likes to be with her human, cuddle, and play with toys. An experienced dog owner who ... (Read More)has an active lifestyle and can include Hannah in their activities would be ideal. A large, fenced yard would be a plus. She does need some training. I am a certified professional dog trainer and will provide a free basic obedience package of 9 sessions to anyone within 60 miles of Fredericksburg and willing to take the time to train her. It will take time, patience, and practice on the part of the adopter. I cannot train them in one session per week alone. Training is a bonding and trust building activity and will assist her new human to be her bestie. If you are interested in adopting this brindle beauty please email contact in post. (Less)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Ace is a 3 year old male Soft Coated Terrier Mix. Ace is about 50 lbs, is neutered, current on vaccines, micro chipped, dewormed, fecal checked negative, heartworm negative and current on prevention. He came to us from the Eastern Shore of VA in December 2014 with Ace after their owner died over a year ago. They were living in a 10 x 20 foot enclosure with limited human interaction because people were afraid of them. A wonderful man(Michael Ballence) contacted us to see if we could help them. He is good with other dogs both large and small and would benefit from another medium-high energy canine companion. If you all know anything about ... (Read More)terriers he is all terrier..haha! So far Ace has gotten along with everyone, but cats. They are just too much fun to chase. Ace would be fantastic as an agility dog or even fly ball. This boy can jump! He is very loving and accepting of everyone. Due to his activity level though we don't recommend small children. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-04-28-00531Gracie (female)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Gracie was found as a stray in SC and wound up in a high-kill shelter there. Luckily, she has such a good temperament that the shelter staff fell in love with her. They begged rescues to take her and find her a forever home. DDB decided that a dog with this much personality needed a second chance. Gracie is currently in a foster home in SC, but she can be transported to the DC area for an approved adopter. This beauty is a super, super sweet and sociable girl. Gracie is about 1-1/2 years old and weighs 45 lbs. She does not have an aggressive bone in her body. Gracie gets along with other dogs and enjoys playing with them. Since she is ... (Read More)pretty submissive, Gracie should do well in dog park or doggy daycare venues. She has not had any contact with cats, so we are unsure how she will react to them. However, Gracie could be cat-tested. Gracie is currently working on her house and leash manners. She might need some training in basic obedience. Gracie is at a good age for bonding with people. Since she is energetic and playful, she would like to find an active person or family to love. Her adoption fee includes spay and transport to the DC area. She is an absolute gem who will make someone an excellent companion. If you give this cutie a forever home, she will repay you with kisses, cuddles, and lots of love. Please apply to adopt Gracie today by copying this link: http://www.dogsdeservebetternova.com/#!adopt. Then complete the dog adoption questionnaire and e-mail it to Ldwalthers@yahoo.com. (Less)

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 ... (Read More)registered 501c3 charity. All of our dogs are pulled form high kill shelters in VA, NC, SC, TN, and GA. Please visit our website at www.virginiapawsforpits.org for more information on any dog or if you'd like to fill out an adoption application for any dog. Adoption fees are as follows: $250 for puppies under 6 months that have not yet been spayed/neutered, $200 for dogs under 1 year that have been altered, $150 for dogs over 1 year, and $100 for dogs that have been in our program for over a year. Adoption fees include spay/neuter (if old enough), all age appropriate vaccines, dewormer (for puppies), and microchip for all dogs. All of our dogs are either in foster homes or local boarding. Please call us or email us if you'd like to set up a meet with one of our dogs. We have several featured dogs at our Petco adoption events every Saturday from 10-2.

    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. I am not sure about that because I am kind of low to the ground, but, at 45 compact pounds, I am the perfect size for playing, followed by a good cuddle on the couch. Oh yeah--EVERYONE says my ears are adorable. Someone dumped me in the street, and I was really scared and cold. But a nice lady took me home and took care of me and kept me warm. Now I am looking for my permanent forever family. I am about 5 years old, housetrained, good with other dogs (I live with Pomeranians), but I ... (Read More)really cannot live with cats.

Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    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 'sit', 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 ...

American Staffordshire Terrier    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Female Dogs Only, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Mr. Cooper was left behind when his family moved away. He is very calm and a quiet character. His hobbies are to snuggle up to a person and sitting on a park bench watching the world go by. He needs the close contact to HIS person, after bonding he is very loyal and affectionate. Mr. Cooper would make a great one-dog companion for a mature couple that enjoys walks in the parks. He might look like a tough guy but he is actually a very puppy-like cuddle champion. How about giving him a chance? Call 804-695-7772 to meet Mr. Cooper, you won't regret it!

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)

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.

    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 loves people, children and most other dogs; however, she is selective about which doggy friends she plays with. When she wants something, or wants to go out, she sings. She has a very good voice. 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)
