Arrival story: Shamrock was found in a rental home after her person went to jail. Luckily she was found before it was too late.

Approximate age / Weight: 8 months / 28lbs as of 7-22-2014

Personality: Shamrock loves being around people. She's sweet and loves to jump on your lap for snuggles. If she can't find a warm body, you will find her hogging the nearest heat vent. Rocky is an all-around great dog. She plays great with big dogs and dogs her size, and is an awesome big sis to the young litter of pups living in her home. Rocky loves to wear canine couture, shop, is great on car rides, enjoys exploring, learned to swim this summer, and is great at the vet's office, too. She is also mastering walking on a leash but as a petite pitty, she doesn't pull hard.

We just can't say enough good things about Rocky. She is just a pup with a fabulous personality.

Forever home: Rocky would enjoy an active person / family to share her life with. As a pup, Shamrock will be dependent on her new family to teach her the things all dogs know to make her a loving companion, in a kind and gentle manner. We recommend all pups attend age-appropriate training class to help strengthen your bond. Please remember that puppies require lots of attention, playtime and patience, while they grow.

Contact: Please contact if you're interested in adopting Shamrock (Rocky)!

We do not have a facility; all of our dogs are fostered in private homes. To view our dogs, please check for the dates of our next adoption events. To meet a dog in person, please see our event calendar for the latest information. Arrangements can be made to meet our rescue dogs outside of Saturday adoption events after an approved application is submitted (the application does not imply an obligation by the applicant or by the rescue group).

Please be kind to our volunteers who have made rescue a second job that they do in their spare time after coming home from full-time jobs. E-mail inquiries will be answered much more quickly than phone inquiries; our phone number is a voice mailbox only.

Thank you for your support of rescue and your interest in a rescue dog!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shamrock (Rocky), a Northville American Staffordshire Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Staffordshire Terrier for sale in Northville, or seeking a American Staffordshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Northville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Northville already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Northville breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even American Staffordshire Terrier breeders who help with American Staffordshire Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Northville paves the way for another one to be saved.
