    Hi, I am Pumpkin Spice Cappuccino. I got that name from the nice lady who rescued me. I was running down the road when she stopped and picked me up. She saved me from being hit by a car but when I jumped into her car I stepped right into her pumpkin spice cappuccino. My coloring is a little like a washed out pumpkin too. I love people but haven't had a chance to meet any of the other dogs in the shelter so the shelter people don't know if I like other dogs or not.

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    Is anybody out there looking for a one and a half year old, mellow Retriever-Pit mix? All dogs here at the shelter are my friends, I like everything and everybody, but I'm terribly sad here. I prefer to watch what's going on instead of participating in wild games. What I enjoy most is to sit with people, cuddle and sweet talk. I listen to every word people say to me desperately hoping some day someone will take me home. What I really need now is gentle care, a lot of love and someone to teach me right from wrong in a loving, patient way. Please have time for me I don't want to be alone anymore. To meet me, please call 804-695-7772.

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 '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 you'd ...

    Buddy My family moved away in a big truck. There wasn't enough room for me to go too. I thought they would come back to get me but I waited for a week in vain. Since I asked neighbors for food they finally called Animal Control and now I'm at the Middlesex Shelter in VA. I'm not happy here, there is not much to do except to wait in my narrow kennel for someone to come by to talk to me or maybe take me for a short walk. Women are nice and I feel safe around them, but men are suspicious to me as I don't know what to expect of them.

American Staffordshire Terrier    Age: Young Adult

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

    Miller What if'|.. what if there was someone for just me? Someone I wouldn't have to share with other dogs? Please allow me to introduce myself. I'm Miller, an American Staffordshire Terrrier. I weigh about 50 pounds. Some people at the shelter call me Mr. Universe because I'm very handsome, very muscular, and very strong. I've been in the Middlesex Animal Control Shelter in Saluda for such a long time that I've forgotten what a warm, cuddly home feels like. I love all people and when I see them I'd just love to jump right in their arms so they would hold me and carry me home. But I've been told that I'm too big to be a lap dog and so I'm ... (Read More)learning to express my joy in a different way. When someone comes to walk me I sometimes bounce around like a rubber ball to show everybody how happy I am. But people don't really like that as much as I do and so I try to get balls for them to make them happy. If the people would just tell me more ways to make them happy I'd do just that. Since I spend 23 hours and 45 minutes alone every day, I've been thinking a lot. What if somebody out there had a job for me? A job where I could sniffle, or run with them in the morning, or do agility sports, or tell when someone rings the doorbell,l or any task where I could make use of my energy and be helpful? If I could just get a little love for my work and a cozy place to live, I'd be the happiest dog in the world. Oh one other thing the people at the shelter want me to tell you. Please have experience with my breed so you know how to read me and I promise to try to translate every word you speak! Please call for me at 804-695-7772. (Less)

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament

    This beautiful girl is Bonnie who is about 7-8 months old. 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 to chase small animals for food, a home with cats would probably not be a good idea. She needs to ...

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 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 ...

    Mango and BamBam are a bonded pair or pound puppies. Mango is a tiny black and white mutt with one ear up and one ear down. BamBam is block headed black and white boy with a zigzag white streak on his neck. They are best friends, they even share a large cage. They do not necessarily want to be with any dogs other than each other. BamBam had a rough start in life. He was abused by his first owner, which makes him a little skittish, and timid until he gets to know you, especially with men. Once he gets to know you he will cuddle and play with you all day, but he needs to warm up to you first. His had a second owner for a very short time. ... (Read More)They had good intentions, but their other male dog did not approve and attacked him on multiple occasions, so Bam in return does not like dominant dogs. especially male dominant dogs. Then I adopted him and life was good...until I lost my home, and I cannot take care of him any longer :( He is really great with children, and adults too once he assures himself you are not there to hurt him. When he is with Mango he has a little more confidence. loves to hide his toys, play hide and chase with mango, be lazy and watch tv and go for car rides. He REALLY loves car rides, he even likes to stick his nose out the sun roof when we let him. Mango was brought to the pound right after she was born, and I adopted her soon after. She is very attached to me(Bam is more attached to my Fianc). She loves to snuggle and play. She doesn't sit still for long unless she is snuggled up by Bam or a person. She can be kind of bossy with other dogs, other than Bam. She is good with people and kids of all ages. She is much more of a guard dog than BamBam, she wants to let you know if someone is coming into your yard or home and sniff them out to make sure they are ok with you. (Bam will watch from a distance and run away if they get too close). They love to chase each other around the yard, follow their human around and be lazy when the time comes (especially Bam with the laziness). They are both house trained and crate trained. They have no separation anxiety because they always have each other. Mango is fixed, Bam is not. They need someone who will love them for who they are, and take the time to see how great they can be. If you think you could provide them with a loving home please call or email me anytime and we can talk and even set up a meeting with them! Thank you!! (Less)

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

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult


    I like my stuffy toy that Santa brought me last year. I still have it. I like to show it to my folks here and get them to toss it for me. I like a shoulder massages. I like to look at you and get a smile back. I like to watch my folks here and see what they're doing. I would like to have my family, just my own folks that I don't have to share. I'd like them to appreciate my athleticism and my commitment (I committed to my toy and I've taken very good care of that)! I'd like them to appreciate my astute powers of observation - not much sneaks up on me! I'd like them to '| love me.

Please sponsor Bowser by making a tax-deductible donation to pay for his surgery and other medical care at http://www.razoo.com/story/Bowser-Needs-Your-Help. Despite this, Bowser is now loving life. He is UTD on shots, neutered, and housetrained. Bowser has settled in nicely with his foster family. He loves people and other dogs. Bowser must be ...

Bowser will be a wonderful companion for some lucky dog lover. Are you the kind person or family who will give Bowser a new life? He will repay you with wiggles, hugs, and sloppy doggy kisses! Please apply to adopt Bowser today. (Less)
