Banjo's Story...
Someone really special needs your help and that someone is Banjo. This total sweetheart was hit by a car and never claimed at a rural kill shelter. He has had surgery to repair is broken leg and his wounds are healing but his heart is still in need of some loving care. He loves everyone of any age, size or species. He's a Pit Bull mix, only 45 pounds, black and white short coat and a neutered male. He walks well on a leash and is very smart for only 3 yrs old. His total goal in life is to please you. You must come and meet Banjo because we know as soon as you do you will love him as much as we do.

For more information or to see Banjo, submit an online dog adoption application at After reviewing the application, staff will contact you—typically within 48 hours— to make an appointment to visit the farm where our dogs and horses are kept.

Our dogs and horses are NOT at the HSFC shelter at 4057 Chain Bridge Road, Fairfax, VA--only our cats, birds, rabbits, and small mammals can be visited there. Come by and see us!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Banjo, a Fairfax 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 Fairfax, or seeking a American Staffordshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Fairfax.

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