Nena – Adoptable

American Staffordshire Terrier & Pit Bull Terrier Mix • Adult (Approx. 2 years) • Female • Medium-Sized 

If you’re looking for a sidekick who is equal parts active and snuggles, Nena is your gal! We think Nena is around a year and a half old. She is perfectly potty-trained and crate-trained with just the right amount of puppy energy for a long walk, jog, fetch, tug, you name it! She’s even been swimming at the local dog pool lately and really enjoys it! She also loves nothing more than curling up on the couch and being a lap dog. She’s a petite pup coming in at around 43 pounds most of which is probably in her ears 🙂

Nena does best with slow introductions with other dogs and would thrive in a home with no pets or an older, mellow dog.

Gordie – Adoptable 

American Staffordshire Terrier & American Bull Dog Mix • Adult (Approx. 2 years) • Male • Medium-Sized 

Hi! I’m Gordie. I’m about 2 years and I am a ton of fun! I love to play tug-of-war, take car rides, visit Home Depot (I call it Home GOR-depot!), and meet people everywhere I go. I beg every day for a walk – even if it’s a short one. I love exploring the world and am looking for a family who likes to do that, too. I’m one of the Peace for Pits Respits, which means I visit the residents of a nursing home to give and get some love. Meeting people is the highlight of my day. I can’t help it – everyone loves me!

I’m over 100lbs of American Bulldog hunk, which is saying a LOT because it wasn’t very long ago that I was malnourished and very sick. I have a condition called ichythyosis [ick-thee-O-sis], but my foster family has lots of tips and tricks to help keep that in check. My skin is dry and I have some bald patches. Oh, and I get more baths than other dogs – but I LOVE my baths. It’s not so hard to deal with. Let’s do it together!

When my foster parents leave home, I get quality time in my crate. Otherwise, I throw parties and they don’t seem to like that too much. I have no problem going in my crate since all my favorite toys and treats are in there.
