Rescue Me ID: 16-07-24-00545Bluesy (female)

American Staffordshire Terrier    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Needs Vaccinations, Abused/Neglected 

    Bluesy was an emergency rescue when I got her. She has a severe flea allergy and was kept locked in a room for about year. Her hair had fallen out and she was unhappy and neglected. I've had her for about two weeks and she's on steroids for the flea allergy and her hair is almost completely filled in. She's good around other dogs that are friendly. Thinks cats are interesting but she's never been close to one. Good with men, women and children. Great temperament. Received basic obedience training and is housebroken. Terrified of bathrooms and bubble baths (no idea why) but very good for both nail trims and baths. She weighs 48lbs. She ... (Read More)doesn't stay in a crate when I'm away. She's never chewed anything up. I've been working on her with leash training, she needs a big yard with a fence. Lots of energy and lots of love to give. Loves cuddling. In no way aggressive. Wants an active family with a big yard. (Less)

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

    Bella is a sweet little gal who is just as pretty as she is lovable! Bella is a typical Pittie, meaning that she LOVES all people large and small! She is energetic and would love a home where she can take lots of walks, or maybe even go running! Bella also knows when it's time to kick back and relax, and can be quite a couch potato at times too. Her smile and sweet nature are sure to cheer you up no matter what. Bella does get along with other dogs, though she prefers male dogs. She can get a little overly excited around lots of dogs, so we recommend a nice quiet home with maybe one other canine friend for Bella. She lives with cats in her ...

American Staffordshire Terrier    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Blue is a beautiful blue American Staffordshire, about one and a half years old. He has been treated for heartworms and is now on preventative. Blue has been house trained and once he can go out several times a day he should do fine. He does pull on leash but once he is able to run in the park and use some of his energy that should get better. He loves people and when he meets you he can't wag his tail fast enough. Blue would love a home with people with an active lifestyle and some kids to run and play with.

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Female Dogs Only, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Sal is a handsome outgoing boy, one to two years old, about 60 pounds. He loves a good run in the dog park with his friend Butter, but is not good with male dogs. Sal walks well on leash and seems to be house trained. He has some interest in playing with toys but would rather run and explore. Sal would love a home with people who like to hike and take long walks and hand out lots of attention in the evening. We have not seen him around small children but should do fine with older kids who could run and play with him.

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Chance is a handsome boy, only about a year old, who lost his family and is quite stressed living in the shelter. He has been treated for heartworms but is otherwise healthy. Chance loves people and seeks attention in the dog park, but he is probably too high energy and too much of a jumper for small children. He walks well on leash once he gets going but at the beginning of a walk he pulls and jumps around. He is one of those dogs who truly does not do well in a shelter no matter how much attention we try to give him. He just wants his own place and his own people, and who can blame him? If you want a dog who will be grateful and ... (Read More)loyal, consider Chance. He would love a home with a big back yard, and active lifestyle, and a comfortable dog bed at night. (Less)

    We pulled Muffin from a shelter in Georgia when she was just a puppy suffering with 2 broken legs and unable to walk. We fixed Muffin up and fell in love with her along the way. Muffin is a cutie pie 100%! She's a sweet little dog with a fun loving nature despite her painful past. She even likes jumping on the trampoline in her foster home! Muffin gets along with most of the other doggies in her foster home, and we believe that she could live peaceful with another dog in her forever home. She's got no problem with kitty cats, and would be fine to live with them too! Approximately 50 pounds, 1 year old (7/9/16)

    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 home of her own.

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: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    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 ...

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
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)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Most Cats 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Chauncey does wonderful with small dogs, cats, and large female dogs. SOME large male dogs he dislikes. He is a large dog who still is very much puppy. He needs an active family. Chauncey loves children! He is shy of elderly men with beards (we don't know why), so we suggest a home within a couple hours so we can make sure Chauncey fits within your family. He has very unique requests and the best way to make him happy is to just give him a try. Chauncey is 85 lbs.
