American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat)
Female
Senior
Meet Azalea! This girl may be getting into her senior years, but she is full of energy and looking for an active home where she can enjoy her retirement. A yard to run in would be great, but nice long walks will also give her the exercise she needs. Azalea loves to swim in the pool and then sunbathe on the deck. She isn't too fond of other animals and would do best in a home where she is the only 4-legged member. Azalea can sometimes be a little shy when she first meets you but warms up quickly and will be your friend for life if you give her belly rubs and back scratches. Azalea is estimated to be approximately 9 years old and weighs about 50 pounds. For an appointment to meet her, please email adoptions@satchelslastresort.org or call 941-924-5070

Hey all, Bolt here! I'm just finishing up my heartworm treatment and am looking to move on from my foster home to my forever home. I was surrendered to animal services with my little canine buddy and would love a home again with another dog or an active family who will play with me and give me lots of both physical and mental stimulation. I love everybody and everything, just looking for love in return please. I haven't been able to have any exercise while I've been going through heartworm treatment so I am in need of some leash walk training. My foster home is currently working with me on basic obedience and house manners. I love stuffed animals, having spent a lot of time with them during my heartworm treatment. My foster dad calls me "perfect" so I must be doing something right, yes? Bolt is estimated to be 4 years old although seems very puppy like and so is perhaps younger. He weighs approximately 50 lbs. For an appointment to meet Bolt, please email adoptions@satchelslastresort.org or call 941-924-5070. He's ready and waiting...

Bradley is a total snuggle bug! Nothing makes him happier than snuggling up in a bed with his family. He has a special patience with children, and you’ll often find him doubling as a pillow or as a foot rest in the kids’ bedroom. Bradley has excellent house manners, including keeping your couch cushions warm while you’re at work. He’s sweet, gentle and has the cutest howl bark you will ever hear! Bradley seems to have lived most of his short life indoors, so the outside world can be a very scary place for him. Loud noises startle him, and he will hide from strangers. Dogs, on the other hand, are not scary at all! Mr. Personality loves to meet new friends, and he will need a fur brother/sister in the family that he can bond with and learn confidence from. He’s basically the ultimate homebody and family man all wrapped into one...and pretty darn cute, too! Bradley is guessed to be a little over a year old and weighs approximately 50 lbs.

The people here say I'm "a rambunctious boy". I think that just means I'm full of energy and need lots of exercise. I'm currently working on my basic obedience and leash walking skills with a wonderful volunteer. I am a strong puller on leash and it'll take time for me to get this slow moving stuff but I'm eager to please and I'm trying hard. Do you have time to continue my training and spend time playing with me to release my energy? If so, please come and visit me - I'd love to show you my skills in the yard.

She warms up quickly especially if you have a cookie that she really likes but she can be particular on the type. She may have gotten a bit spoiled here at Satchels with our wide variety of donated goodies. It may take someone a couple of visits to see Charlee's true personality. She loves to sun herself and roll around in the yard. She is a low key girl but does have her moments of excitement. She loves stuffed toys especially if they make sounds.

A little story about a girl named Cherish and her journey. She was found tied up and left with no food and only rain water collected in a bowl for drinking. She was picked up by Lake County Animal Control and given immediate attention and love by their wonderful staff and caring volunteers. She was bought to our attention and the actions to save her began. Heartworm positive, extremely emaciated, upper respiratory infection. It was touch and go at the beginning, but slowly and surely she began to flourish. With many small meals throughout the day she started to put on weight. She began to regain strength and mobility. Our girl was fighting to survive. And survive she did!!! After 7 months of care, love, and nutrition Cherish is ready for a home and lap to call her own. Cherish is a little insecure and gets anxious when her favorite people leave her alone. She adores petting and belly rubs and just wants to hang out with her people. If you have a little time to help this beautiful girl feel secure and loved in a home of her own, please come out to Satchel's and meet her. Cherish gets along with other dogs and cats and would make a great addition to any family. Cherish is estimated to be 3-4 years old and weighs approximately 55 lbs.

*SPECIAL NEEDS: SEPARATION ANXIETY* Cookie here. Satchel's rescued me several years ago and helped me raise my puppies. My puppies all found homes and Satchel's became my home. It's okay here and the people are great but I would so love a home to call my own and my very own people to love me. I'm an energetic girl and would do best in a home where I am included in the activities of the home. I love to run around the yard playing or go for nice long walks. I did have some separation anxiety when I was caring for my puppies and I'm not sure how it would affect me in a home, so I really need a home with someone who will help me work through any anxiety I have. I can also be an escape artist if I want to be - jumping fences to look for my people if I'm left alone. I am getting older now and haven't jumped a fence for a while but it would be best not to leave me alone in the yard. I love people and make friends with everyone I meet. People here say I'm a lover. Are you looking for a lover? If so, please come and meet me... Cookie is considered one of our special needs fur babies because we are unsure how severe her separation anxiety might be in a home.

I enjoy playing fetch with the ball (although I don't necessarily bring it back to you every time, I just want you to come and get it from me), and absolutely love love love jumping in the water in the tubs we have here at Satchel's. And, of course, car rides are high on my list. Belly rubs are great and I'm sure I would enjoy lounging around with you given the opportunity.   Wilbur was the only dog I ever wanted in my life so I'm looking for a home with no other dogs (or for that matter, no other 4 legged species). Do you have the perfect home for me where I will be showered with love and kisses throughout my senior years, please, please?? I'm waiting...   Ilean is 10 years old and weighs approximately 50 lbs.

If you were to take me home, you would be my world and I would want nothing more than to cozy up and cuddle next to you. Oh, and I don't really want to share you with any other four-legged being, so I do need to be your only baby please. I love going for car rides and am the perfect passenger. I can be a bit of a diva when it comes to my bed, but with my health, I can't help but feel entitled. Several months ago, I was diagnosed with kidney failure and am now getting fluids twice a week. My latest tests show that the fluids are doing their job and keeping me healthy. Now it's time for me to find my forever home with that special person who will continue to give me the fluids I need. It's not a problem to give them to me - I'm so used to it and am no trouble. P. S. You might have seen me around town with my friends from Satchel's Last Resort at our local events.

*TRIPOD Lila came within an hour of losing her life - a girl with so much life yet to live. It was Sunday, September 15, when we received an urgent plea from a county shelter rescue team to save Lila's life. The plea stated she had an open femoral fracture and was in pain. The plea went on to say she was "very hard to handle, and even with sedation screams and lunges." The potential rescue needed to have a committed foster. It was Sunday, we needed time to discuss with our team and find a foster if our decision was to take her into our program. But no, Lila's time was up and she would die today if a rescue commitment was not made by 7 pm. Satchel's scrambling started, our team agreed we had to do whatever was possible for this girl, one of our regular fosters offered her home, and the call was made for a stay of execution for this poor baby. Lila became a member of the Satchel's family. Lila's limb couldn't be saved and surgery to remove her leg was performed. This little girl is shy and timid but we have seen none of the lunging or aggression towards her caregivers. Being in severe pain, as Lila was, can cause the reaction she displayed before her leg was amputated. She has been in her foster home recovering since and is now ready to move on out to a new forever home. Lila is guessed to be approximately 3 years old and weighs 40-45 lbs. She gets along with the other dogs in the foster home and ignores the cats. For an appointment to meet Lila, please email adoptions@satchelslastresort.org or call 941-924-5070.

She has storm phobia, likely from being an outside dog, and gets anxious before a storm starts. She is looking for a loving, patient home to ease her anxiety during storms. Lizzy is an absolute lover. She adores people, especially children, and any attention they will give her. She's such a cuddler and loves to give kisses! In her younger years she was a bit of an escape artist and showed she could jump a 6 foot fence if there was something on the other side she wanted to get a closer look at. She enjoys walks and car rides - sitting in the passenger seat like a princess. This girl loves to play with toys and enjoys the pools here at Satchel's. She can get a little muddy having fun in the water and dirt, but doesn't mind her baths. Lizzy doesn't care for other animals and needs to be in a home as the only pet member of the family.

Marley grew up with his best bud Ziggy and they were extremely bonded, even sleeping on top of each other. They spent the past few years at Satchel's together. Unfortunately, Ziggy recently passed away and Marley finds himself absolutely lost without his best friend. Marley is laid back and friendly. He is definitely a Heinz 57. But what he lacks in Pedigree he makes up in personality. Marley never really liked to chase balls but always loved to chase after Ziggy while he was in pursuit of the ball. I think now he'd prefer just to hang out with his people and get some petting time in. He does love car rides and walks and would be happy to enjoy the sites with you.   Marley is a senior boy at 10 years old, but has a lot of life left in him and wants nothing more than to become a part of a family for his remaining years.   For more information or to make an appointment to meet Marley , please email comments@satchelslastresort.org or call 941-924-5070.

Mila is a young, energetic girl looking for a low stress home. She needs lots of exercise to wear off some of her energy before she settles down to snuggle with her person. Mila is a bit of a resource guarder, especially if she is crated, so an adult only home is recommended for this girl. Mila is estimated to be 2 years old and weighs approximately 40 lbs.

Meet Minka. This precious baby, rescued from Highlands County Animal Services, joined the Satchel's family 10 days ago. It is believed that Minka was used as a breeding female and now at only 2-3 years old has outlived her usefulness in that life. Thank goodness! She can now find a forever, loving home with a family who will love her and give her the life she deserves. Minka is currently in a foster home and we're told she is extremely good natured and has the sweetest temperament. She gets along great with the dogs in the home and loves human attention.

* SPECIAL NEEDS: STRANGER DANGER * Hi All! I'm Nicci. I'm a parvo survivor rescued from Sarasota County Animal Services when I was just a young girl less than a  year old. I've been here at Satchel's for way too long because I don't particular care for strangers and I haven't found that person who wants to take the time needed for me to trust them. Once you're in with me, I'm an absolute lover and just want to hang with you and snuggle. Staff and volunteers love me here but I know I'd blossom in a low key home. I like other dogs and am pretty submissive with them most of the time. I love to go for walks once I'm comfortable with my surroundings and like car rides as long as I don't have to get out and meet new people along the way. I love stuffed animals and big comfy blankets. I'm a playful, gentle girl and I love to roll around and tussle with friends. Nicci is 6 years old and weighs 55-60 lbs.

Peppy is ready to move on to her forever home! Satchel's rescued Peppy from animal services in the fall of 2017. This poor girl was a starvation case and learning to trust people initially came a little hard for her. Thanks to our caring staff and volunteers, she is now able to live her life again, without constant fear of being abandoned or mistreated. She would do best in an adult only home and does appear to get along with other dogs. Peppy is estimated to be 5-6 years old and weighs approximately 50 lbs.

*** Special Needs *** Anyone looking for a senior girl who needs some extra special loving? That would be me, Phoebe. I love to be around people and am looking for a patient caregiver who can spend lots of time with me. I don't always see very well and I get confused when I'm outside on a leash and tend to walk in circles. The people here at Satchel's say I'm way to skinny and are working hard to put some fat on my bones. Phoebe is guessed to be approximately 12 years old.

Hey I'm Rosey and I'm looking for someone to love me for the rest of my days. I'm a senior girl at 11 years old but I still have a lot of spunk and so much love to give. I absolutely love people and wiggle my crooked little tail whenever anyone pays attention to me. On a hot summer day, I love playing with the water as it comes out of the hose. I like short walks but my most favorite thing to do is going for car rides. Car ride, car ride, car ride - YES PLEASE! I'll ride around with you all day if you'll let me. A canine companion is okay as long as they are nice to me and don't take the front passenger seat of the car as I do like to ride shot gun. Are you looking for a co-pilot, I'm here! Rosey is a laid back, easy going girl patiently waiting for her own bed in a loving home. For more information or to schedule an appointment to meet Rosey, please email adoptions@satchelslastresort.org or call 941-924-5070.

Sandler is a great dog who has not had a lot of luck with owners in his life; and we are the third shelter he has called home, so he really needs someone who wants to spend time with him.  It is estimated that he was born in September 2010 and he weighs 55 lbs. He is a jumper and can’t be left alone in a yard (he’ll play with you, though, if you’ll stay with him), but he’d be perfect for someone who wants a walking or running mate. He got along with other dogs when he first entered shelter life, so he may once again – and he’d do best in an adult only household.  When it comes to adults, he loves them though.  He has become a favorite of all the volunteers at the shelter.  If there is more than one volunteer helping out during a shift, there is almost a fight about who will get to take Sandler out.  That is how great he is!

Hi Everyone, Tank here! I've been at Satchel's for a while now, likely because I don't act very friendly behind the bars of my kennel. Satchel's rescued me and provided the heartworm treatment I needed to survive. Out of my kennel, I am a different boy. I spend overnights with one of my special friends from Satchel's and I have warmed up to strangers she has introduced me to almost immediately. I like to be walked on a harness and don't pull at all. However, I do pull when just on a collar and tend to choke myself. I love car rides sitting perfectly in the passenger seat once you make me realize I can't sit in your lap! I have not had one accident during my sleepovers - I think that means I'm potty trained. I crave affection, love cuddling and enjoy sleeping in the bed with my friend. Oh, and I give hugs! I like playing with toys, especially tennis balls and am quite gentle with them. I just finished going through 6 weeks of agility training and I loved it! I do need some training as no one has spent any time yet working with me in that area, but I'd love to learn so I can please you. Tank is guessed to be 4-5 years old and weighs about 55 lbs. For an appointment to meet him, please email adoptions@satchelslastresort.org or call 941-924-5070.

Toby has grown up here at Satchel’s. He came to us as a young dog, emaciated and with horrible Demodex mange. His skin was inflamed and he had several bald patches. He now has the most beautiful coat. He is fantastic dog with lots of love to give but can be a little leery of some strangers initially. He loves going on car rides and to show you how happy he is, he will try to give you kisses the entire trip. He has been kenneled with his canine buddy for several years but can be a little selective about his canine friends. He still has lots of energy and enjoys playing with toys in the play yards. He went through basic obedience training in his earlier days at Satchel's but would need a refresher in a home. Toby is 6 years old and weighs approximately 55 lbs. Please email adoptions@satchelslastresort.org or call 941-924-5070 if you would like more information about Toby or for an appointment to meet him.

Tonka is an incredibly energetic girl who is very eager to please. While she can be excitable, she wants nothing more than attention from those she loves. She can be a little leery of strangers but once she trusts you she will win your heart with her giant ears and exuberant personality. Tonka knows basic commands and walks well on the leash once her initial excitement over the prospect of going for a walk diminishes. Her absolute favorite toy is a Jolly Ball Romp-and-roll which she can swing around for hours. Once playtime is over, she easily settles down for a cuddle. Tonka would do well in an active home with structured training. She will require an adult only home where she can be the only four-legged member.  For an appointment to meet Tonka, please email info@satchelslastresort.org or call 941-924-5070.

Venus here! I'm a chilled, low key senior looking for someone to love me. I was in a home for many years but as I got older I didn't care to be around the other dogs in the home, got myself into a little trouble and found myself here at Satchel's. I'm not much of an outside girl, just want to be inside in the air conditioning. I love people and here at Satchel's they call me "a very affectionate girl". I know all the basic commands and I listen well to them and try to please my people. So if you're looking for an older girl, who needs little exercise but lots of loving, I just might be the girl for you. Venus is 10 years old and weighs 70-75 lbs.
