Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier (short coat). Hercules is about 8 years old, and he's got a very sweet personality! He likes everyone he meets, and when he gets excited, he "talks" and makes very silly noises. Hercules takes Prednisone occasionally for a recurring digestive issue, but he is super affectionate and has a lot of love to offer. He can CLIMB chain link, he's very athletic, so you would need at least a 6' high solid wooden fence to keep him safely at home. He loves attention, and is happiest when he's with people, so why not consider making him a part of your family? NO CATS All of our dogs are available for a $150 donation. This includes them being spayed/neutered, micro-chipped, and fully vaccinated. To adopt a dog, we require an approved pre-application, as well as a securely fenced yard. This means an actual, physical, fence. "Invisible" fences are not acceptable, sorry. Please contact us at: dogtownmutts@gmail.com for details. Please note: we typically do not do "out of the area" adoptions. This would be any location more than 60 miles away from the Reno/Carson City area.

More About American Staffordshire Terrier Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Location: Carson City, NV
      Posted Breed: Carolina Dog / Mixed. Roko is a very special boy who is going to be a great addition to some lucky family. He came to us from Iran, by way of Canada. He's about 10 months old and his breed is listed as "Iranian Mix" on his paperwork. Unfortunately Petfinder doesn't have that choice, so we have to make something up based on his appearance to get him posted. Anyway, he was badly injured as a puppy and as a result of having his jaw broken, he has a very adorable underbite. He is a normal puppy in every way, playful, happy, silly, and loving. His underbite does not bother him, nor does it get in his way when eating or playing. Roko is housebroken, great with dogs his size or smaller, good with cats and loves humans of all ages.
