Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier (short coat). My name is CAPONE & I'm a handsome PUREBRED UKC registered 5 y M Blue/White American Staffordshire Terrier. Actually I'm an 'American Bully' I'm a big blue 'sexy beast' and am 102 lbs of PURE MUSHMELLOW. Look at my sweet big mushface!! I was surrendered by my owner due to housing issues but he spoiled me rotten and let me have run of the house and sleep on the couch and bed. Still he raised me well, because I have no separation anxiety, am housebroken, walk well on the leash and am not a barker. I may look mean but I'm just a BIG BABY, a GENTLE GIANT and have a very sweet mellow low key temperament and just want to be your best bud. Since I was an only dog, I wasn't socialized with lots of dogs but I seem to be ok with calm dogs, big or small however I do love puppies! I'm great with kids but I don't know about cats. They freak me out a bit. I think I could be trained with them but best if I don't go to a home w/ cats. I'm very easy going and not a hyper dog. I need to go to a home with someone who knows, understands and appreciates my breed. Please come and meet/adopt me today!! For more info/app, pls email: CECE@TAILSOFLOVERESCUE.ORG

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.

I am ok on the leash but could use some further leash training. I am crate trained and housebroken. I am ok with young kids as I grew up with them.

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Black Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). My name is ZOLA and I'm a 1.5 yr F Black Lab/Amstaff/Pit X. I'm 60 lbs of PURE BLACK BEAUTY. I was surrendered by my owner due to NO TIME and since I'm a youngster I have energy and do need daily structured exercise and interactivity. I know basic commands and am housebroken; but I'm very strong and could use some leash and manners training. I'm a sweet lovebug and I'm ok with dogs in passing but since I've been in foster care with no other dogs, I have become a bit isolated and need further socialization with other dogs. I was ok with a cat until the cat went after me and now I'm a bit wary of cats but with a nice mellow cat I think I could learn to coexist with one. Since I'm strong and wiggly happy, it's best if I go with older kids ages 10yrs+. I need someone who is experienced with my breed and is active and wants a dog to be active with. I would love a big fenced in yard to play fetch in as well. I'm a DIAMOND in the RUFF and need that special someone/family to polish me up!! cuz I'm a GEM of A DOG and will be your loyal companion and BFF! Please come meet/adopt me today!!

I was rescued as a pup from a homeless person and has lived a life of duty in an auto body shop in Queens. NY. I love people big and small but since my job was to guard the shop at night, I can be protective of my space and intimidate strangers. I am selective with dogs. I don't like pushy dominant active dogs but am better with quiet, calm dogs. I love kids but I do like to jump up if you have a ball and because of my size, it's best if I go with kids ages 10 yrs+. I know basic commands and walk ok on the leash. I definitely could use some further training and need someone who has had PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE with MY BREED. I am very loving and JUST a BIG BABY!!. I long to lay lounge on a couch rather than live in an outdoor dog house. Please come meet/adopt me today!! For more info, pls email: CECE@TAILSOFLOVERESCUE.ORG

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). ** COURTESY POST* MARLA is a 1.5 year old pit mix looking for her forever home. She is spayed, up to date on shots and microchipped. Her foster saved her from a bad situation. When she was picked up, she had just been attacked by other dogs she was living with, had large gaping wounds and it looked like she might have had puppies recently. The vet said Marla had visible scars and this wasn't the first time she had been attacked and it was possible she had just had puppies. As sad as Marla's past is, she doesn't let it get her down! Marla is housebroken, crate trained, sweet and absolutely loves snuggling. She is great with other dogs (she is currently living with another dog in her foster home). It is unknown how she would do with cats as her foster family doesn't have any. Marla does get a bit excited when first meeting new people and will jump, but her foster family is working on that with positive reinforcement training. Because she's a bit jumpy it would be best if she went with older kids ages 10 yrs+. She has come such a long way since she has been living in her foster home and would do best with a family that is active and will continue the training started by her foster family. Ideally, her forever home would have a fenced in backyard for her to run around in. Marla is one sweet bunny of a dog and will be your BFF!! Come meet/adopt her today!!

Poor Rizzo was surrendered by his owner because of "No Time" and unfortunately the owner didn't even have time to feed him because he is extremely skinny and underweight with all his bones showing... but sweet Rizzo has no hard feelings towards anyone.... He just LOVES EVERYONE and once he puts on weight he will be A SUPERMODEL Rizzo was a little skittish at when he first came into the shelter but he quickly warmed up to everyone and has become a "volunteer favorite" Because he was soo nice and balanced the behaviorists chose him to be used as the "helper dog" in evaluating other dogs on their dog 2 dog reaction. He is FRIENDLY TO ALL DOGS BIG &SMALL Rizzo does pull a bit on the leash and this is because he was never leash trained. In fact his nails are soo long and this indicates his owner(s) probably never walked him. In fact we found out that Rizzo spent most of his day tied up in the house. which is really sad. Rizzo appears to be housebroken as his kennel is clean as a whistle and he does his business as soon as he is outside. Rizzo loves to play in the backyard and he is SO AFFECTIONATE as he loves to come on the lap and kisses, kisses and kisses. Rizzo is good w/ other dogs and when he sees another dog, he just wants to play!!. Rizzo is a not a good dog, he is a GREAT DOG- An Ambassador for his Breed and will make a WONDERFUL FAMILY DOG & LOYAL COMPANION - Come Meet/Adopt him Today!

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Rat Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hi my name is MYLO and I'm a 5/6 yr M White/Tan Chihuahua/Rat Terrier X. I'm 14 lbs of PURE SUGAR & SPICE!. I was surrendered by my family due to the death of my immediate owner and no room for me. Unfortunately I was not socialized properly with people and other dogs so when I lost my human pack leader, my whole world came crashing down. I was very terrified at the shelter and would get a little snarky/snippy with the shelter staff when they tried to touch me. But I warmed up with the volunteers that were patient and gave me a "slow hand". Once I get to know you and you give me space and not try to man handle me too much I will show you a whole lotta love and snuggle right next to you!. Because of my shy fearfulness, it's best that I go to an "Adult Only" home and with someone who has had previous experience with my breed. I'm a super loving little boy but am just too insecure and afraid that I can get a little snappy. I am very housebroken, crate trained and walk well on a leash. I'm not fond of cats but I am ok with small quiet calm dogs. Pls give me a chance and come meet/adopt me today!

I seem to be ok with other dogs running side by side in a fenced yard but haven't had much socialization with dogs off leash. Because of my strength and bully attitude, it's best if I were a SOLO dog and not be with young kids or cats.

I'm 70 lbs of SUGAR PLUMP DUMPLING & I'm just the sweetest!! I'm a short chunky gal but I can be a bit of a bruiser since I'm so strong. I get excited when I'm outside but inside the home I'm a total couch potato. I currently live with 2 other pits and am civil with most dogs on the street as long as they don't try to get on top of me. I am gentle with kids but have never met any cats so I'm not sure if I would like them. Even though I love food, I take treats very gently and know basic commands. Since I have white fur, I'm prone to certain food allergies and need to be on a 'no grain' or 'raw' diet. I am medium energy and walk well on a leash and love to go for a slow jog every now and then.
