What is the Fastest Way to Rehome an American Staffordshire Terrier?

Have you decided to give up your pet and you're wondering, "what is the fastest way to rehome an American Staffordshire Terrier?" The route you've chosen (to rehome him yourself instead of surrendering him to a shelter) is a responsible one as it gives your dog the best chance of finding a home where he'll be happy—but it will take some time. The fastest way is to get him in front of as many potential adopters as possible. Here are some ways to do that.


This method should be used with extreme caution, if at all. People look for dogs on classified pages and then pretend to really want a family pet when what they really want are dogs to use as bait dogs or for other objectionable purposes. If you do decide to list your dog that way, always carefully vet the adopter and make sure to always charge a rehoming fee.

Work with a Rescue 

Some rescues are willing to list your pet on their social media which will be seen by all of their followers and, hopefully, by someone who will want to adopt your American Staffordshire Terrier. Some rescues even take it one step further and will assist in the screening process, providing home visits, and other services to ensure your dog ends up in a good home. If you're able to find a rescue that offers these types of services, consider making a donation to them in exchange for their assistance.

List Him on an Adoption Website 

Excellent online resources, such as the Rehome by Adopt-a-Pet.com website, allow you to create a profile for your pet, communicate with potential adopters, and more. This is one more way to get your pet seen by as many people as possible.

No matter how you choose to advertise your dog, always be totally honest about any issues. For example, if he is rough with kids or aggressive towards cats, the posting should say "Must be a child-free and cat-free home."

There isn't really a fast way to find the perfect home for your pet, but knowing your American Staffordshire Terrier ends up in a place where he'll be safe and loved is worth every bit of effort!
