Stout (prev. Jaida)'s Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, not good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Stout (prev. Jaida)'s Story...
Stout was adopted from our rescue 4 years ago. We are now working with her current owners to find a more suitable home, as she is not adapting to new young children in the home.

From the current owner: "Seeking an awesome and supportive child-free, pet-free home for our six year old, 40 lbs. border collie/staffie cross, Stout. She is great with adults, and loves to play with other dogs in the trails, but she is not trustworthy around children or other dogs in confined spaces, and is not a dog-park dog. We would like to find someone who is willing and able to manage her in situations where she experiences anxiety-related aggression, and to love her despite her quirks.

Stout has been a part of our family for the past 5 years. She is very well trained, as she has spent much of her life as a loving sidekick to a professional dog walker/certified dog trainer. She has lots of energy and loves to get outside for hikes and runs, but is also happy to sleep in, chill at home and relax or play with toys. She is very fit and healthy.

As we have both recently gone back to work full-time and have a 11 month old baby in the house, we are no longer the best fit for her and can sadly no longer provide her the kind of lifestyle we know she deserves. We’d love to find a home who loves her as much as we do and who can give her the proper support she needs to thrive.

Stout is a bit sensitive and would likely need some time to adjust to her new home. We would like to offer ongoing training support with a certified dog trainer free of charge throughout and after the adoption, and ideally, we would find an owner who would be open to letting us visit or take her out for a nice hike every once in a while. We would also be happy to pet-sit Stout on the occasional weekend or overnight."

Stouts dad has many pictures of her here:

These are some pictures from 4 years ago when she was adoptable in rescue:

Stouts adoption fee is by donation, but there will be a very thorough screen process. We would also prefer homes willing to stay in contact with the current owners, as they are an amazing resource for Stouts needs.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Stout (prev. Jaida), a Chilliwack American Staffordshire Terrier/Border Collie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Staffordshire Terrier/Border Collie for sale in Chilliwack, or seeking a American Staffordshire Terrier/Border Collie dog from a breeder in Chilliwack.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Chilliwack 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 Chilliwack 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/Border Collie breeders who help with American Staffordshire Terrier/Border Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chilliwack paves the way for another one to be saved.
