Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). 29 July 2014: Meet Roxie who is need of a forever home. Roxie is a stunning pit mix who is 2.5 yrs old. Roxie does not only carry good looks she is very smart. She knows Basic commands and is proud to act on them when told. She enjoys just about everything and will make a wonderful companion for someone who loves the outdoors such as hiking, jogging and walks. But there is more to this beautiful girl. She has a wonderful balance. Loves her people and is very loyal. Roxie loves to cuddle is super affectionate can be chill she is just a big mush! Roxie is a little shy when meeting welcoming friends but it does not take her long before she is by your side wanting to be your new best friend. She presently is living with two teens at her foster home and wants to be part of their circle enjoying their company and friends they invite to the home. Roxie would make an awesome only pet. If other dogs are in the home Roxie would be best with dogs who are submissive she would need a very slow introduction as she has become fearful of other dogs because of a little scuffle in the home. An understanding owner willing to take things slow and help her overcome some of that fear if other dogs are in the home would be best. Her foster is presently working on taking her for walks with their male dog hoping in time this fear will diminish entirely. Roxie was friendly and interested when meeting a litter of puppies. We believe this scuffle between dogs in the home has just set her back a little but we are hopeful things will move in the right direction with an owner who understands this situation. Roxie would need a cat free home. She is truly a wonderful loyal girl with so much to offer to a family who is willing to make her part of their home and life. She is house trained, crate trained up to date on all her shots/vetting and is spayed. She weighs about 75 pounds. If she has captured your heart and you would like to adopt her please fill out an application with us.

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.

      Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier-Mastiff Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Mastiff / American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Large beautiful strawberry blonde female Mastiff mix. 22 Feb 2017: We are still desperately looking for a foster or forever home for Stella. Stella is about 6 years old and was saved about two years ago from death row by Second Chance Rescue. She sat in boarding for over a year and then landed what she thought was her forever home where she lived for 8 months. Stella has some uncertainty when meeting some new people and she had an incident in her home where she bit the food delivery guy. The bite was minimal and barely broke the skin but her owners decided instead of getting her the training she needed they returned her back to Second Chance Rescue. We took Stella in for training and she has been doing really well over here with us. She is actually friendly and social with people when properly introduced. She came to us with some really bad dog aggression and while she still needs to be the only dog we have gotten her reactivity under control and she has come a long way with being able to be around other dogs. Stella needs an owner who will provide her with good leadership, structure and rules so that she can continue to flourish like she is here. She is a low key girl and enjoys taking long walks and hanging out with her people. This poor girl has been let down twice and needs someone to step up for her and give her the home she deserves. Stella is fully trained in off leash obedience and her new owners will receive free handling lessons and lifetime support from us. To apply please go to their website www.nycsecondchancerescue.org

      Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). 10 June 2014: Maggie was abandoned on the side of the road in North Carolina with her toys and a bowl of water where she stayed for 2 days until someone rescued her. She is a little over a year old and is the perfect size at 45 lbs but feels even lighter when she curls up on your lap. She tends to be more of the quiet couch potato, but she LOVES to play. She hasn't quite gotten the gist of playing fetch and loves her toys. She will bring you a toy and when you try to take it from her to play catch you will end up playing tug of war, of course if you don't try to take it from her she will try putting it on your lap until you do. She is very food motivated, allowing her to learn her commands quickly with treats. She knows sit, stay, lay down, up, & come. She thinks shes a lap dog, loves to watch TV, give lots of kisses, and she loves to burrow behind you or under pillows or blankets. Maggie Mae is a follower and a snuggler. She wants nothing more than to be sleeping on or next to you and will follow you everywhere. Maggie Mae would love a large fenced in back yard to run free in. Her energy comes in spurts so a really intense game of catch tends to wear her out quickly. She wants to be your constant companion, your reason to have a smile on your face, your best friend, and she deserves to be someones world. For this reason, she would do best in a very active home with no other pets, no small children, and experience with rescue dogs. To adopt Maggie Mae please apply at http://nycsecondchancerescue.org/app-form/

      Breed: German Shepherd Dog-Labrador Retriever Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog / Labrador Retriever / Mixed. 22 Jan 2017: Sandy is a 9 year old lab-shepherd mix. She is a well-behaved girl who would love to spend her golden years as a cherished family member. Instead, though, she landed in a kill shelter and now sits in boarding (where she has been for far too long), just hoping that someone will make her a part of their family. Sandy is a big girl, weighing about 90 lbs! And as you can see, she is a beauty. Sandy would do best in a home where there are no other dogs or a very submissive dog that is about her size. She would be an ideal match for a couple, maybe even an older couple who understand what it’s like to be aging. Sandy has been posted and marketed a lot but seems to keep getting passed over. It is so very sad. Won’t someone give her a chance? Sandy is located in New Windsor, NY (not too far from Poughkeepsie). Why not visit her and see if there’s a love match? If you have another dog, you will need to bring him/her along. Sandy is spayed, up-to-date on all vaccinations, and is microchipped.
