Facts about Jimbo

  • Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier Mix
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Jimbo is a playful, fun-loving boy who wants to be a part of everything you do…he can’t get enough quality time with you! He aims to please. He wants to make you happy and feels bad when he disappoints (which is not very often). Jimbo loves every person he’s ever met and absolutely LIGHTS UP when kids are around!! He will make a wonderful family companion.

Jimbo can be very insecure in new environments and fearful of other dominant dogs (especially other males). Due to his insecurities and issues with certain dogs, Jimbo should be part of an active family familiar with the breed and capable of satisfying his needs. He will do best in a home with larger dogs (female) that do not pose a threat to him. Jimbo is a 50lb American Staffordshire Terrier. He was ‘nanny’ to three kids but not contained well or exercised enough so he kept escaping & getting into trouble. Since with foster (and being neutered), Jimbo has learned what it means to be an integral part of a pack and no longer wants or tries to escape. He is a very joyful dog who really lights up the room with his energy.

Jimbo is fully house & crate trained…he will not go to the bathroom or destroy anything as long as you’re gone. He can sit, lay down and come here and knows his name very well. He is fully up to date on all vetting, neutered and micro-chipped. He gets along great with people and submissive dogs.

Jimbo needs a family with kids old enough to manage him and with medium to large dogs more on the submissive side…if any. He would be a great only dog because he loves 100% of your attention. Can Jimbo come home with you?? Jimbo's adoption fee is $125.00. If you are interested in him please fill out an adoption application on our website at or email his foster dad at Be sure to specify that you are looking for Jimbo!!! Thanks!

About Forgotten Dogs of the 5th Ward Project

About Our Rescue Group...

We rescue in an historical area of Houston called the 5th Ward. We founded Forgotten Dogs of the 5th Ward Project November of 2011 to address what we saw as an obvious need to help the many stray, abandoned, and neglected dogs we were seeing in there. We set up feeding stations and network and pull as many as we can when a foster home or no-kill rescue group says they can take them in. One of our goals is education and we provide residents with access to free spay/neuter and rabies vaccinations. In addition, we provide other vaccinations and worming in the field to strays that we can not immediately pick up. Since November 2011 we have grown in size and have rescued over 728 dogs, and a few cats, from the area. We are launching a program called Habitat for Hounds through which we will donate doghouses and blankets to residents for their dogs that are kept outside. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, so all donations are tax-deductible.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption fees are $150 for adult dogs ages 2 and older and $175 for puppies up to 2 years old (plus an additional spay/neuter deposit on those that are too young at the time of adoption: $100 local, or $250 for long-distance adoptions). Long distance adoption transportation costs vary based on size/weight/breed of the individual dog being adopted. We have an adoption application and contract. All animals are spayed/neutered prior to adoption, if old enough, or, for young puppies, arrangements are made to have them spayed/neutered afterwards.
