    Hi, everyone! My name is Scarlett. I am a sweet, 4-4.5 yrs. old, Blue Nose Staffordshire Terrier saved by Rescue Ridge from a local NJ shelter. I have learned a great deal here at Rescue Ridge in Monmouth County NJ and the folks here sent me to a professional trainer where I learned even more. I know a few commands, take treats and food gently, love to go for walks, car rides, and play in the play yard at the kennel. I am good with large dogs and the folks here have not tested me with small dogs or cats so we are really not sure about that. What they are sure about is that I give wonderful kisses once I get to know you. I am best in an adult home with an experienced owner. I get too excited about my toys but you can correct me to let me know to stop. That is what my trainer has taught me and I am eager to learn and please you. They really want me to go to a home that is willing to keep up with my great training. If you are willing, then that would be perfect! I keep my kennel very clean and am housebroken in a home. I was in a foster home and was a good girl. I really want to go home so please apply to adopt me at No inquiries, please, without an application. I sure hope to meet you soon so we can have lots of fun together! Please apply to adopt Scarlett at She is waiting in her kennel in Monmouth County NJ and she wants to go home for the Holidays.

  • Shelly
    Shelly 4 Yrs. Old Staffordshire Terrier


    My friends call me “Shelly”. I am a captivating, intelligent, and affectionate 4-year old, 55 lb. girl… if I do say so myself.  

    I am house trained, know some basic commands, and am getting better on a leash. I eat way too fast- it appears that I had a pretty rough start in life- so I eat from a puzzle bowl to slow me down.

    I am probably better off as an only pet, as I want all of the affection I was deprived of early on, but I would be open to meeting another male dog my size.

    A home with older children or adults-only would be ideal for me, as I can be excited when I am happy. After all, I probably didn’t have much to be excited about before.

    Shelly is currently being fostered in Staten Island, NY. To learn more, please contact AmsterDog at [email protected] or fill out our application at to get the process started.
