    Lady Red was given to me as a gift because my beloved cat, Loco, got killed by a pack of wild dogs. In the above pic she was 9 weeks old. In the below pic, she's all grown up!


    Boss came home with me from California when I flew out there to take another dog to her forever home in 2002. He was in a foster home where he was labled as a problem dog. What high drive bully wouldn't be a problem in a tiny ranch house with 6 other dogs, 15 feral cats, 2 giant macaws and assorted rescued reptiles?


    Lenox was rescued from Clayton County Animal Control by my friend Jennifer. Some guy contacted me because he was interested in adopting a dog. I told him about Lenox, and went to do the homecheck with Jennifer. Me & the guy really hit it off and now we're married and have 3 perma pitties.

    Pebbles came from the shelter. She was a foster dog we kept because we thought she was going to be some sort of small dog around 20 pounds. She ended up being the second largest dog here lmao.

    Rita we got from Michigan from a friend who was fostering here. She was wondering the streets and a vet there took her inside and kept her trying to find someone (which was my friend) to take her.

    Edge came from Michigan also. My dog had just passed and a friend from another dog board started posting pictures of Edge. She was fostering his litter. A couple decided to have a litter of puppies to get money to fix their truck. They couldnt aford the puppies when they got there. They were terrible malnourished and Edge had a problem with his leg. They were all cramped in a small box wallering in their own poop and pee.

    A couple friends from my dog group got the couple to turn them over to them. One of them raised the pups back to health and I ended up takeing Edge because he looked like the dog I lost.

    Click, my foster, was found playing with a neighbor dog about a mile up the road. She called and asked if I could take him because she knew I did Pit Bull Rescue.

    Dillan_ Another Foster dog, was given to my wife by a woman she worked with. Her husband had taken Dillan from a nephew who had gotten him and wasnt able to keep him because he had to move. The uncle who took Dillan was discovered to have a bad heart. He was in need of a transplant but not a good candidate for one. They knew he wouldnt be able to take care of Dillan because of his health. He passed away a few weeks ago.

    Sissy- my last foster, came from the shelter also with her sister whom I placed last year.

    First night with "Diesel". Found him at the City Pound while feeding some stray cats...yeah, I said cats. I feed them at night and reached down to find out who was bumping me...didn't feel like a cat...actually looked like a Brown Boxer Puppy at night. Decided to take him and try to find him a home. Since I found him while in my Jeep Liberty CRD Diesel, I figured "Diesel" was as good a name as any. Took him to my friends Vet Clinic and started the process...Parvo Shots, Round Worms, Tape Worms, ect...4 pounds 9 ounces. Three weeks later...no worms...10 pounds 6 ounces and moved in.

  9. Mindi'smom

    Mindi'smom Puppy


    My new puppy Mindi is from a DD BYB. Yeah I know probably not the best place to get a pup from but I couldn't bear the thought of her ending up as some druggies guard dog or worse in a fighting pit. Even though she is not a pure APBT she's looks like one so far she has a small amount of Min Pin in her. I will have to be careful as pitties and similar looking dog are highly stolen around here. I wish I could save them all but I can't I've tried to find the rest homes succeeded in saving one more besides Mindi. She's a little young to be away from her mom I'm suspecting she's about 5 weeks they said six but I think they're lying but she's eating solid food and drinking water and is happy and healthy. House training is going extremely well she's use the paper inside and does her business on the grass when were outside. She chases the cats and plays with them but they don't mind, although they can't seem to figure out was this tiny dog like critter is doing She's the runt of the litter and is about half the size of a 5 month old kitten Oreo. My two year old son is mad at me because I won't let him play with puppy until she gets bigger. LOL

    I'd include a pic but I'm unsure of how to do it. Sorry

    All of mine are found or shelter

    Charlie is about 16 and came to me from a friend of a friend - found running down the street. He was just about 18 months and only 35 pounds :mad: He had either been out a while (which I don't think) or someone wasn't feeding him...so he stayed and now he's totally dedicated to my husband


    Scooter is just about 3 1/2 and he's (best guess) a DdB mix - probably some pittie but don't tell the insurance company. He came to the shelter at about 8 weeks old. With his little bent nose, no one wanted him...so he sat and waited...then he got K/C and because of his nose he had to have nose drops 4 X daily with his other meds - which of course the shelter can't do...so he came home with me so I could maintain his meds...and well...he stayed because he was just too dang cute. He is my Ambassador dog for work and goes to events and classrooms to do humane education with me.


    Cinder is also a pound puppy. My former Operations person adopted her from the shelter at about a year and she was afraid of everything and everybody...not aggressive, but scared to death. She is now TT certified and is 10 - the arthritis in her rear hips keeps her from doing much work anymore...but she still manages to do a bit of bite therapy now and again...she is an amazing dog so still, so totally tuned in and so totally responsive.


    Then there's the pinhead! I've had Magic for just over a year...one day...maybe...we'll be able to get him CGC and use him for work. As you can see he's a Standard Poodle and he has all the typical behavior patterns for a Standard just amped up about 3 times. He is amazingly agile, amazingly energetic, amazingly smart and amazingly stubborn...but he's learning.

    Shes Got Heart Little Dog

    My 9 month old is a bonified backyard bred dog. I got her from a friend. She was from an opps litter that shouldn't have happened. But I am glad that it did or I would not have the wonderful companion I have today. We've been through some times together that she helped me a lot through. And in return I give her the most love possible. I picked her out at 2 days old. And I got to watch her grow since. I had to fight of demodedic mange in here as well. It's a battle we are still fighting. But I wouldn't trade her for the world.

    She was given up by her owner. Got her Oct 06

    Got him at a "shelter" in 2004
  17. My BF got Debo at 8 wks old from a byb breeding fighting dogs, we're pretty sure. Neither of us knew anything about byb's then, & not really anything about the breed. He had a friend who had these huge, extremely gentle "pits" (I think they were mixed w/ mastiff or something) & the friend knew someone who had puppies. Well, what he didn't tell my bf (if he knew) was the difference in game-bred dogs vs. non game-bred. BF got a very different dog than what his friend had. But neither of us is the type of person to throw a pet away, so 5 yrs later, Debo's here to stay! The experience forced us to learn more about dogs & the APBT breed & Debo's turned out to be a wonderful dog. We love him :grin:
