My Staffordshire terrier is called Luna and was a rescue dog. We spent about 8 weeks getting to know her, taking her on long walks daily. We then went and visited my family in the UK for two weeks, when we got back the dog shelter called us to say that Luna has a skin condition brought on by stress. She'd spent the two weeks pinning for us, and had become reclusive, we brought her home that same day. She's about 7 years old now, is great with the chickens and ducks, and is also fantastic with my two kids. She took to sleeping next to our bed when my GF was pregnant. When the kids where born she slept next to them on the floor.
