Jessie's Story...
Beautiful blue-nose Amstaff girl Jessie scored high on her behavior evaluation--- so why did IOHR have to pull her off the euthanasia list twice? Simply put, there are not enough homes for beautiful girls like Jessie.

Jessie is very friendly and loving toward people and children. She also enjoys the company of dogs, but can throw her 53 lbs around-- she likes to be the boss of other dogs-- but will graciously accept a new leader if one arises. In short, a great, spirited, loving girl-- rare too. br>
A VOLUNTEER WROTE: Jessy loves to show off how she knows how to sit for treats and to do her #1 and #2 outside where it belongs. This 46 pound, 1 1/2 year old American Pit Bull Terrier mix adores belly rubs but probably didn't get many before she was found in Brooklyn, roaming the streets as a stray. She shows her affection for people by licking their faces. Jessy is entranced by other dogs and pulls on the leash a bit, so she needs some help in that department, but her friendliness makes up for it! Our vets gave her the highest behavioral rating she can get, and said she is sociable and tolerates handling well. During her photo session, Jessy was the perfect model -- calm, patient, and showing her best profile. Please come today and brighten up her future by giving her a new family to love!

All of our animals come fully up to date on vaccinations, heartworm tested negative, and dewormed, as well as neutered, and treated for any ailments found upon veterinary examination.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Jessie, a Cincinnati 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 Cincinnati, or seeking a American Staffordshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Cincinnati.

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