American Staffordshire Terrier    Age: Puppy

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

    Hi, My name is Blu, I am 35lbs and 11 months old. I was rescued from Florida. I love to take long naps during the day, and when outside, I like having strangers and kids play with me. Since I was a rescued dog it takes me a little while to warm up to other dogs, because I don't know if they want to hurt me or be my friend. In the house I don't chew on furniture, but if you give me plastic recycled bottles, I could spend hours chewing on those. Because I'm still getting used to the cold, I come with my own winter clothes, as well as, food, treats, toys, collar, chest harness, vaccinations, microchip, spayed, etc. I prefer to be in ... (Read More)open spaces, or in a bathroom if you have to leave me alone, not in a kennel (it brings me back back memories from the shelter and I get very anxious and might even have an accident).

    Hi, my name is Taz. I am a beautiful Am Staff mix. I am very loving and like to play with other dogs. I know it says I am not good with kids but the website doesn't give another option. I haven't been around any kids or cats so the shelter people don't know if I like them or not. I am on heartworm preventative and ready for my own forever home. The shelter staff loves me. I know because I was eavesdropping. I love them too but it just isn't the same as having my own home with my very own humans. My brother got adopted and now lives with two other dogs. Please won't you come see me and be my forever human?

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.

Bonnie and her brother Clyde lived outdoors through heat, wind, and rain. They had no food, very little water, and no medical care.

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 ...

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 

    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 gets along with most 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 up on people, which we are working on. She is crate and ...

Rescue Me ID: 14-07-21-00629Willey (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult


    Willey came to us a few weeks ago from the I.O.W. animal shelter. He is a big boy, and some people are intimidated by his large size and loud bark, but he is not a scary boy. He LOVES to play fetch and would do best in an active family that had a open (but fenced) area for him to run and play fetch. With some training, he could make a good exercise partner. UPDATE: Willey is an amazing animal. He plays fetch (KONG) daily with one of our workers..he is a smart dog..loves people and his kong..he wants only to be a good boy and have a family of his own. Willey is a Houlagan favorite..(3
