Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier (mix) Age: est 1/2009 Gender: Male Coat: short Altered: yes Size: medium Color(s): red-white Description: Hi, I'm Chester an American Staffordshire Terrier mix. I was one of many dogs rescued from a raid in El Rio. I'm grateful to be given a chance to know the true meaning of being a cherished member of a loving family. I'm good with other dogs so if you have a canine companion already in the family, please bring him/her so we can do a meet and greet. I need a minimum 7 foot fence as I can easily clear a 6 foot fence if left alone in the backyard and I want to go exploring. I'm currently being fostered on a ranch where I get to run three miles every day. We've been through a lot and I hope we all find our forever homes really soon.

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.

Hi, I'm Nala an affectionate and playful American Staffordshire Terrier mix who tries to be a lap dog. I'm looking for a new home because I don't get along with the other American Staffordshire Terrier in the home, but I do just fine with the Jack Russell Terrier in the home. If you have a dog already, please bring him/her along so we can do a meet and greet. I'm a very active dog who enjoys running and firm massages. I've lived with 2 children (5 and 9 years old) and have not had any problems with them. I'm house and crate trained and will even let you know if I have to go outside by staring at the door. I need daily exercise and would be a great fit for an active family who loves to go running or bike riding. I hope you won't judge me by my breed, but will instead come and meet me.

Although I'm having a great time at the ranch, what I really want is a loving family and home to call my own. I'm not your typical house dog, since I've only known life on a ranch. I'd do best where I have lots of space to run. Additional information: *Housetrained *Current on shots
