Facts about Bandit

  • Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier Mix
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
BANDIT is an adorable one to two year old AST mix male who is sure to steal your heart. He was picked up as a stray by Animal Control in Union City, NW TN. He was not clamed by an owner and so he was rescued in order to save his life. He now needs to find a forever home. He is a stout boy and weighs 61 pounds. He tested negative for heartworm. He is vaccinated and neutered. Bandit is very energetic but, with strong leadership, he will obey. He will benefit from a bit of training as he does tend to jump up on people. Until he is trained not to jump, he would do best in a home without toddlers since he would possibly knock them over. Bandit is a very sweet boy and listens very well when handled with a firm but loving approach. If you live in another state, don't let that stand in your way. We will work to transport Bandit if it means he will have a good forever home. If you are another rescue group, we will waive the adoption fee but you can make a donation toward vetting at your discretion. The adoption fee will help our 501(c)3 non-profit rescue to cover at least part of the cost of the veterinary care he has received.

Our Adoption Process...

In general, there is an adoption fee of $200 which helps to cover the cost of basic veterinary care, age-appropriate vaccinations, heartworm and fecal tests, spay or neuter and microchip. If a dog has required medical care above and beyond the norm, the adoption fee could be higher. Fees are sometimes lower for certain dogs, so please inquire. If we are unable to arrange for volunteer transport for adoptions outside our area, it may be necessary for us to arrange for paid transport at a cost of approximately $140. Completion of an adoption application as well as a veterinarian reference is required. Our online adoption application can be found at www.adoptapet.com/TnDiamonds-in-the-Ruff/adoption-application/. We also have a paper application which you can obtain by emailing donnadeaner@gmail.com or call 330-760-2148 or 731-446-4013. Thanks for your interest in adopting a Diamonds Dog!
