Jay's Story...
What is your name? Jay

How old are you? I am 10 years old but you wouldn't know it by watching me. I am in great health!

How much do you weigh? 80 lbs.

What do you look like? My foster family believes that I am a purebred American Stafforshire Terrier. I am a sorrel color with white on my chest. I have short legs and a big barrel chest. My foster family thought I looked a little scary when they first met me, but I showed them that looks are deceiving because I am just a big teddy bear.

What do you like to eat? Anything! I'm not picky at all. I LOVE hard biscuits!

What kind of personality do you have? I am really loyal and sweet. My foster mom said she is in love with me. I've never known the gentle touch of a female and my foster mom pets me and rubs my chest. Sometimes I don't even know what to do, I am so happy. I love to be out in the open and to go for walks in the fresh air. I will chase a ball if you throw it but really I just want to be near you.

Describe your perfect day: Getting out of the kennel and taking a walk with my human is my perfect day. I love to be in the fresh air. Being out because I've been locked up my whole life would be my favorite thing. I dream of what it would be like to live in someone's house with them and sleep next to them on my own bed at night. I don't need much but my perfect day would include a warm bath and just being snuggled and loved.

What is your history? I lived the past 10 years in a kennel with the rest of my family. When I was younger I heard the humans around me say that I was a beautiful pure bred Gotti Line pit bull. I used to meet a lot of dames and I've been told that I have over 100 babies but I don't know where they are. I wanted a long term relationship but the dames just came and went. I'm really looking for a long-term relationship. My owners never spent time with me and when I got older they dropped me off without so much as a goodbye. I was very, very sad. I spent 10 years with them. What did I do? I tried to be a good boy.

What is your favorite toy? I don't care about toys too much, just my human.

What scares you? Being discarded. I was loyal to my owner for ten years and then one day he dropped me off on a doorstep and I heard people talking that maybe I should just be put to sleep because I am so old. I am NOT old! I'm ONLY 10! And I'm in great health! I was so terrified that would be the end of me. I heard it over and over. Luckily my foster family fell in love with me and see that I have YEARS left in me and that I have so much to offer someone who will just love me back.

Have you been around children? I have not met any children but I have loved every human I have met.

How do you feel about other dogs? I don't really pay any attention to them, especially if I'm on a walk. I just want to focus on my surroundings.

If you could be anywhere in the world, where would it be? Anywhere in the world where someone loves and appreciates me.

How is your health? Awesome! I have lost a few teeth and I sometimes don't hear really well but other than that I am in great health. My joints are healthy, I run and play just fine!

Who do you live with in your foster home and who is your closest companion? I live with my son Chibby in a doggy condo. We get along great. I also have a foster brother, Buddy, who is a border collie. He is pretty cool. My other foster brother is a cat, Murphy. I'm curious about him but he just swipes at me and won't give me the time of day, even though I try. I have 3 horse foster brothers. They kind of freaked me out when I first met them because they are SO BIG! I chased after them one day trying to meet them but one of them kicked me so I don't think a couple of them want to be my friend. Another one put his nose to my nose. He kind of scared me but I think he just wanted to be my friend. Chibby, my son, and I are really close.
We sleep together at night.

Where do you sleep? In my doggy condo kennel.

Do you like walking on a leash? I love it and I don't pull at all!

Do you have any “not-so-great” habits that we should know about? For instance do you bark or dig in the yard? I don't bark. I'm a pretty quiet personality. I stayed a few nights in a pet motel and the people who checked me in told my foster mom that I just “go with the flow.”

Are you house trained? I've never lived in a house but I'm really smart and want to live in a house so I promise I will learn and practice! I keep my doggy condo kennel clean and only do my business in one corner. I usually try to wait until my foster parents take me out.

Do you like playing in water? It's okay. I don't really care one way or the other.

What do you love about your foster family? They are so nice to me and take me on 2 mile walks every day. I'm so grateful to know them. My foster mom and dad said they are both in love with me and wish they could keep me but they can't so want to find the best home where I will be happy and at peace.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Jay, a Lincoln 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 Lincoln, or seeking a American Staffordshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Lincoln.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Lincoln 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 Lincoln 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 Lincoln paves the way for another one to be saved.
