MYA's Story...

The test results from 5/21/2010 indicate Mya is an American Staffordshire Terrier, Dachshund, Irish Setter, and West Highland White Terrier!


Mya came to us from a high kill shelter in Georgia. She was listed as a Pit Bull/Boston Terrier at this shelter, although she is actually neither of these after DNA testing. Upon intake, we found Mya to be Heartworm positive. We have placed Mya on a slow-kill treatment rather than a quick-kill treatment, which is far less invasive and dangerous, and the remainder of the slow-kill treatment will be provided to her future family when she is adopted. Mya is extremely people and animal friendly. She loves attention and will sit on your feet to get you to pet her. Mya is highly maternal, which makes her a great pet to have around children. She is a Beta, and is extremely non-aggressive. Mya is constantly around all sizes of dogs, from small 2 lb. puppies all the way up to large Rottweilers. She loves to snuggle by your feet, and is quick to give her paw for a chance to be pet.

What a perfect home would have: Mya's perfect home would be with people and pets she could constantly interact with. Mya is especially people orientated, therefore it would be great for her to be around people. Children of all ages are wonderful with Mya, as she is a maternal canine. A fenced in yard would be ideal so she could play whenever she wanted. She loves to be in the yard with other canines, as long as they are non-aggressive. She is then extremely content coming inside to snuggle and be with the family. Mya sits with her foster mom in the office while she does work, and she spends time with everyone while they watch television. She will quickly roll over for a belly rub, and lay her head on your knee to say hello. Mya is a friendly, fun, American Staffordshire Terrier mix who is looking for a loving and accepting home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

MYA, a Seneca Staffordshire Bull Terrier/Dachshund dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Staffordshire Bull Terrier/Dachshund for sale in Seneca, or seeking a Staffordshire Bull Terrier/Dachshund dog from a breeder in Seneca.

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