American Staffordshire Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    Bandit came to us after years of living tied up in a shed that leaked and offered no protection from the wind. He was emaciated and had a skin problem. Despite the treatment he had received, Bandit is a friendly boy who likes people and shows no aggression that we have seen toward other dogs. He is almost up to a good weight for him - he weighs just over 60 pounds now as opposed to the 39 pounds he weighed on arrival. Bandit is about eight years old but has tons of energy and loves to run in the dog park. He has been treated for his heartworms and is on preventative. Bandit would love a home with a big fenced yard and some older kids ... (Read More)to run and play with. He needs some leash work because he had never been on a leash before we got him. He seems to have a sensitive digestive tract but is doing well on grain-free food. Please consider giving this boy a good loving home for the rest of his life - after what he has been through he deserves it! (Less)

Compatibility: Good with Male Dogs Only, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed 

    Roxy came to us after living in the woods and trying to raise seven puppies by herself. All of her puppies have been adopted and now she needs a place. Roxy is great with people, with male dogs and with some females but not all. She loves to go for walks and play in the dog park and is gentle enough that she should be fine with most children. She came in with heartworms but was treated as soon as her puppies were weaned. She would do well with people with an active lifestyle who would like a companion on their excursions and someone to spend quiet evenings with. She has not been destructive with bedding and should adjust easily to ... (Read More)being in a home. Please come meet her so she can start a new and better life. (Less)

American Staffordshire Terrier    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Nellie is one of the sweetest dogs in the shelter. She loves people although her first impulse is to jump up and kiss them, but after she has been with them for a minute she calms right down. She really just needs more love and attention than she can get in a shelter. Nellie also loves other dogs but likes to jump on them while playing. She has never shown any aggression toward anyone, dog or person, and we suspect she would be fine with cats too although she ha not met any. She is playful when out in the dog park and will chase balls and seek out attention from people. She is approximately 50 pounds. Nellie would love a home with ... (Read More)older children who would romp and play in the yard with her. She came into our shelter several months ago extremely thin and scared and has blossomed into a healthy affectionate girl.

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Clover is a beautiful gal. She has a lot of love to give. She is currently in a foster home and has even been to visit her foster mom in the hospital- what a good girl! Clover would do best in a home without dogs or cats. Due to her 'happy tail' that wags 100mph with pure love, she may be better suited for a home without small children. Don't miss the chance to add this sweet girl to your pack!

Animal ID: 1502-1505Dallas (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Dallas is a 3 year old black, white and a bit of brindle boy that has been with us for over 5 months now. He's had a pretty 'ruff' time as a shelter resident. He's ready to put the past behind him and move on with his life. He's got dreams and they involve being the apple of someone's eye! The center of their universe. The one and only fur kid that they will need. He promises to be all that they could ever want and he only has one request; Dallas doesn't want to share his people with other pets. He's ok when being walked with them, but he isn't trying to have one as a roommate! You could say Dallas is a lucky dog as he has a Facebook page of ... (Read More)his own and a volunteer that adores him. Somehow, even with those things going for him, he remains unnoticed. His volunteer's heart is poured into this boy 100% but he's still not getting the exposure he needs to have his handsome face find it's way into an appropriate home. Maybe we can help wipe away his shelter mom's tears and put the biggest pittie smile ever on Dallas's face if we work together to share his story and his pictures. All it takes is for that story to hit the new's feed of the right person at the right time. It happens all the time. It's time that it happened for Dallas! He's too handsome for me to understand why he gets no attention. He's not a bad boy. Actually he's one heck of a lover boy! He loves his people. He adores kids. He's house trained. He knows his basic commands, although he is a bit stubborn and prefers to do them at his own leisure...you know how those handsome fella's can be. Dallas loves the water! He would love a family that will buy him a kiddie pool of his very own or let him in their big pool! He's a cut up in the backyard! Bring out a ball and you've found yourself a best friend and after all the play time is over is is more than content to just hang out with you and keep your feet or lap warm. He's a 60 pound lap dog for sure! He takes treats nicely too. He's just a good boy that doesn't like other dogs. He deserves a good home with people that are going to be ok to have one dog to spoil. If you think you have a place in your heart and home for a guy that has paid his shelter dues and is more than ready to have a family to love then please stop by Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center, 341 S Birdneck Road and ask at the front counter to meet Dallas (ID# 1502-1505). Someone will be happy to bring him out to meet you as he's currently waiting in the back for his forever family to come and find him. (Less)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Ace has been with us for well over a year and basically grew up in a shelter and foster homes. He is a pit mix who turned two years old in February. He is a very energetic boy who weighs 70 pounds. He loves to chase balls and swim. He would love to be with a family who would take him hiking and on lots of adventures. He is also a quick learner and graduated from basic obedience school. Ace grew up in kennels and foster homes and has never know the security of a stable environment. He can be nervous around strangers and has never been around kids. His ideal home would be a responsible, active, adult only home with a fenced yard for Ace to ... (Read More)play in. An adoption fee of $175 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.

Rescue Me ID: 15-07-08-00695Petra (female)

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)

I love going on walks and runs are even better, I've been told that I'm very good on a leash. My foster dad lets me sleep on his bed with him and I really like to snuggle.

    Today was a special day! Two nice ladies came and took me out for a walk!

She grew up at our local shelter, and has been in and out of our foster program several times at no fault of her own and has never known the stability of a loving home. Duchess is a short, fat little bully who loves to snuggle up under the covers with you! She adores people, is very affectionate, and very silly! Duchess is house trained and prefers to be inside with her family most of the time. Although she adores all humans, she is not so great around other animals and prefers a home where she is the only pet. We are not giving up that there is someone out there that ...

    Hi, I am Josie. I am a sweet girl and I love the people here at the shelter.

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.

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)
