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.

      Breed: German Shepherd Dog-Staffordshire Bull Terrier Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier / German Shepherd Dog / Mixed (short coat). **If you're viewing this on Petfinder, please visit www.petconnectrescue.org to complete our non-binding application.** Pearl is a wonderful, 6 month old Staffy/Shepherd mix, who weighs approximately 50 pounds. Pearl is a fabulous gal who is good with dogs, is great all people, adores kids, and is even fine with cats. She loves to play and has your typical puppy energy. Because of her playful nature and size, she is not recommended for homes with dogs under 20 pounds or a home with a dog that could be easily annoyed by her playful demeanor. Pearl knows some basic commands and has good recall. She is both house and crate trained, though there is rarely a need to crate her, as she knows to chew on her toys only. Because she is young, she would not be a good match for someone gone an entire work day. She is well-mannered, playful and full of love - all she is missing is a family to share all of her wonderful qualities with! She is spayed, up-to-date on vaccines and preventatives and eager to find a family to love! The adoption fee for this dog is $350, which helps with the cost of routine vet care. This fee DOES NOT INCLUDE spay/neuter if the pup is not already spayed/neutered. If the animal you are adopting is not already spayed/neutered, you will be required to sign a contract legally obligating you to have the animal altered. ***Note that puppy adoption fees most often help generate revenue that goes towards older, special needs animals that need our help. Surgeries, heartworm treatment, boarding costs....all things that often result in adoptable dogs and cats being left behind to be euthanized. So adopting a puppy saves not just one life, but many! ***Please note that our first step in approving adoption applicants is to complete a vet check. Vetting of current and past pets is very important to us, thus we will be speaking with the vet(s) listed on your application to ensure that your current and previous pet(s) are kept up to date on vaccines (including rabies ) , spayed or neutered, maintained on appropriate monthly preventatives and examined annually by your vet.*** To complete an online application, please click here and email Crystal at CWood@petconnectrescue.org .

Parker is 3-4 years old and a big sweetheart who loves every person he meets. We are talking about a super special, sensitive, fabulous dog here. He is a Pointer through and through so goofiness abounds. He is a leggy, tall guy, but grace is not his forte'. That being said, Parker is great on a leash! He is learning to sit for things he wants like toys, treats and walks. More than anything, Parker loves a good game of fetch and playing with his squeaky toys. While Parker enjoys attention from all people, he is best suited for a home with older kids and, if there's another dog in the home, the dog should be similar in size and have a calm personality. He requires an adopter who will provide the physical exercise he craves. He would make an excellent running partner or hiking buddy. Parker is a total catch for an active, hands-on family. He could benefit from group training classes and crate training. Parker is just here waiting for a hugging buddy for a lifetime of loyalty and endless adventures - could it be with you? He is neutered, up-to-date on vaccines and preventatives and eager to find a family to love! ***Please note that our first step in approving adoption applicants is to complete a vet check.

He is an energetic, fun-loving boy who is elated to be out of the shelter. He loves all people. Because he is playful, he is not a good fit for a home with an older dog, as his love for play would likely annoy an older dog. Wally's biggest dream is to be the only dog in the household to get all of the love and attention! He is not fostered with young children therefore we feel he would be best suited for homes with kids age 8 and up. Wally did well during his cat test. Due to his playful nature, Wally is not a good match for someone gone an entire workday. He loves to romp with his human and canine foster siblings, thus his ideal home will have a yard for him to run and play. Wally is crate trained and house trained. He is neutered, up-to-date on vaccines and preventatives and eager to find a family to love!

While she truly loves all people, like many "mature gals," Sasha knows what she wants and is a bit set in her ways. While not a bad things to know what you want, this trait makes her best suited for homes with kids 12 years and up, who will respect and understand this aspect of her personality.
