Cam is eager to make friends, and she loves other dogs. Cam is already spayed and vaccinated. She is already house-trained.
Notes from Cam's caretakers:
Cam is 6 years old and weighs 43 pounds. Because she is little nervous around unfamiliar dogs, we recommend placing her in a home without other dogs or with her bestie Sam. Their owner kept them in the yard and decided he no longer wanted them. If you've got a quiet home with a fenced yard, please consider giving her adopting Cam and Sam together.

Hazel was found dodging cars on a busy street and rescued. While in rescue, she's made a new friend in Gus, another unwanted Amstaff. If you've got a home free of cats, dogs and kids and can give her plenty of attention, you'd make a great match.
