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.

      Posted Breed: Bullmastiff / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hi! My name is Molly, but my foster mom calls me Molly Moo Cow. I am a big lover and like to think I can fit my whole big booty on your lap to snuggle. I am a very sweet girl who listens well to verbal commands (once I know them). I would love to have a home where I can play a little bit but for the most part be a couch potato. I am very loyal and smart. I like to act goofy and roll around on the couch. If you need a cuddle partner that can spoon with the best of them then I'm your girl!

      Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier (short coat). Amelia is a little clown! She reminds us of Sophia from the Golden Girls... this senior lady still has a lot of personality packed into that compact little body! :) We think she is about 10 years old, though it's difficult to tell, because she had a rough life before coming to EDCR. From chronic untreated skin infections, she has a naked patch on her tush where the fur likely will not grow back, but it just adds to her character. Like all of us as we age, Amelia does need a couple prescriptions - she's on prescription food, ointment for dry eyes, and medication for an old injury to her hip. Don't expect a slow old lady when you meet her though... she still loves to play and she will DANCE when it's time for dinner! LOL We really want to see this little gal get all the love and spoiling in her final years that she should have gotten her whole life. If you're interested in fostering or adopting Amelia, please let us know!

      Breed: Miniature Pinscher-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Miniature Pinscher / Mixed (short coat). Margie is a sweetie! She is approximately 5 years old and a petite little lady, weighing 17 lb. Margie had a badly broken jaw when she came to EDCR. We tried several surgeries to try to get it to heal, but finally her bottom jaw had to be removed. She needs her food to be pureed so she can lick it up, but other than that she's a perfectly normal, happy little girl, who loves to cuddle! She is housetrained and friendly with other dogs. She'd make a wonderful companion! You bring the blender and she'll bring the love. :) Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix.

      Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Boxer (short coat). Angel is such a sweet girl! She was adopted in 2009 from EDCR but was returned to us through no fault of her own. She is approx 9 years old now and has developed hypothyroidism, but this condition is easily managed with an inexpensive medication. Angel is confused about why she lost her home and family, so we're hoping to find her a new foster or adoptive family quickly. Angel will go for walks if you like, but she's just as happy to relax on the couch. She gets along with other dogs who share her mellow demeanor. She is housetrained and knows basic commands. If you'd be willing to open your heart to Angel, as a foster or a new family member, please contact us!

      Posted Breed: Plott Hound / Mixed (short coat). Sweet and silly Marin came to EDCR with a fractured spine. We were concerned that she would be paralyzed but with surgery and TLC from her foster dad Marin has made a great recovery. She now walks well, but she does have some permanent issues with fecal incontinence; this is manageable but will take a patient and understanding family. She is a social girl who loves to give kisses and play. Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix.
