Breeding & Training - Savannah, Georgia
Copyright 2018 - Shaust Staffies Service Dogs

At Shaust Staffies we train and adopt out all breeds with few breed exceptions. We screen
exceptionally closely. You can see some of our ladies and gentlemen on our photos page
that we have placed or that we are in the process of training. With that said, we do have
something to say about the "bully type" that is often misunderstood because of a certain
climate promoting dog fighting.

I'm Shoshana, my middle name. I am also known by my first name: Dorothy. My personal
seizure alert dog is a 2 1/2 year-old Amstaff. You'll see him a lot on this site. I rescued him
from the pit and he is beyond amazing as a service dog and companion. All of our dogs are
registered and vaccinated before dispatch and adoption.

The American Staffordshire Bull Terrier is often termed "Pit Bull" which is
slang for any "Bully
Type" in modern society. Once known and revered as a "Nanny Dog" placed in the job of
caring for children, they have been sadly misrepresented since many wrong human hands
began holding their leashes in the 1990's. They are excellent search and rescue dogs. They
are also highly regarded as bomb/narcotic sniffers for the government. They
love human
beings, especially children
, and they are very affectionate. They are also working dogs.
Adults can pull weights over 4,500 pounds piled on trailers and climb 40-foot walls. Properly
trained and sincerely loved, these ladies and gentlemen are truly a lady's and gentleman's
best friend.

At Shaust Staffies we breed and train for the service dog industry only but it does include
obedience and agility training. Again, we work with almost all breeds. We are very sensitive
to dog temperment, cross-bred or not. We do not take Tibetan Mastiffs or Caucasian
