    Sex: Male Male

    Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Payton has had a rough go of life. He would do best as an only dog in a home with adults only. Payton attaches very quickly to people and just longs to be loved. He needs a soul-mate, someone who will talk to him, teach him and share the world with him.

    Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). If I could describe her in one way it would be that she is hands down the greatest ambassador for the breed! Every single dog and person she comes across, she is the sweetest little thing. She truly embodies the pittie resilience for the horror and abuse she went through, she wouldn't hurt a fly. She does well with all types of dogs: she loves contact play but also is extremely respectful of our laid back dog Enzo. She loves to go on long, long walks but prefers to spend ALL day napping in her open cage on her big comfy bed...(sounds like a perfect pooch to me!) she sleeps soundly through the night on her bed. She has never shown destructive behavior as she is out while we are gone. Also, zero food guarding-I can take her food bowl away while she is eating with absolutely zero problem. Such a good girl! She does great with respectful kids that obviously understand she is a little shy and can't be crawling all over her. We take her out with us everywhere and once we stop to chat with people-she will lay down and wait patiently. She doesn't jump and is so chill to take in public. As expected from her heart breaking first year of life-she is shy and timid. After only a month she now follows me around the house and wakes us up every morning with such a wiggly butt. She just needs a little time! She is only 1.5 years old and a gorgeous girl.

    Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). When sweet Georgia came to her foster home, she broke hearts with the empty look in her eyes. It was as if all her hope and happiness had been taken away, and left a fearful shell behind. But we're happy to say that now, several months later; Georgia is getting her groove back. Georgia came into the shelter at 4 months old as court “evidence”. Her person had been arrested for animal abuse. After over 6 months in the shelter, the case was closed. Let that sink in: Seven months of her first year—practically her entire puppyhood—stuck in a cage. She and her four brothers/sisters were released back to the animal who owned them. He decided that Georgia and her sister were not good enough for his enterprise, so he left them there. We think they are better off with us! Because now, we get to help Georgia and her sister! Today, Georgia's beautiful brown eyes are no longer empty and scared. She has an innocent look of curiosity and her confidence is building. When she's comfortable, she holds her head high--standing pretty and tall, tail up and wagging. Georgia can still be a little skittish, especially outside or with strangers. But once she gets to know you, she will also be your floppy puppy--plopping into your lap like a teeny-tiny pup for love and affection. She has a great love of a couch, and she loves blankets so much that she must taste them...shredding them into hamster bedding materials. Georgia has recently discovered her tail, and tries diligently to catch it. It looks like those chewies that she's also starting to show interest in. She's a delicious caramel color and filling out into a lovely young lady. Georgia plays with her foster sister dog, but doesn't know what to think about the more hyperactive foster sibling dog--and they only get supervised leash play for now. Georgia's confidence is a work in progress. And the best home for her is going to be someone with a ton of patience and empathy to get her over her fears slowly. Some things she's wrestling with: "More than four stairs! OMG! Scary. Too many!" She is working on her potty training…it is taking a bit longer because she has been nervous about the great outdoors -- "Tell me again, WHY we are outside?!?" Right now, Georgia is afraid of children, and would do best in a home without the fast-moving little ones. She prefers a quiet secluded spot to play with her toys and nap. Georgia would benefit from being in a home with another dog who can show her the routines and demonstrate that there's nothing more to be afraid of. Georgia's lucky forever home is out there. We know she has a spirit match in this universe. Please give us a call to find out if it's you! :) OC This sweet little girl is super-timid, but oh so loving. She only wants to be petted. And when you hear OC’s story, you’ll understand why. You see, OC came into the shelter at 4 months old as court “evidence”. Her person had been arrested for dog fighting. After 7 months in the shelter, the case was closed. Let that sink in: Seven months of her first year—practically her entire puppyhood—stuck in a cage. She and her four brothers/sisters were released back to the animal who owned them. He decided that OC and her sister were not good enough for his enterprise, so he left them there. We think they are better off with us! Because now, we get to help OC and her sister! It took her a few days to learn to jump up on the bed, but she figured it out. OC now sleeps with her foster, cuddling and burrowing into the covers like she’s always known a bed. The bed truly is her safe haven. She’s still shaky going up and down stairs, but she’s getting the hang of it. OC is learning about using the bathroom outside. OC is going to need patience and love. She still gets a little scared when you move too fast. And going for walks makes her nervous—that leash—she doesn’t care for it one bit. The world is a big, big place to this sweetie, so she likes to know her spaces. Going outside in a fenced yard works just fine. We don’t know how she is with kids, but she is great with her foster dog brother. And of course, she’s got a lot of lost play time to make up! OC loves playing with her foster brother Norman. They run, run, run around the yard and play tug-of-war in the house. She hops like a rabbit when she plays. OC sees herself in the mirror and her ears stand up straight. And she likes to lick you with her long fat tongue. She loves her treats, but she’s skinny. You can see her ribs right now. But she’s growing into them! 
Won’t you come meet OC? She’s looking for someone who will share their bed, their hearts and their love. She has a lot of missing time to make up!

    Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Border Collie / Mixed (short coat). Jelly is such a sweet, smart, and fun energetic girl! She loves to run around and entertain you with her silly zoomies. Then, once she burns off some of her puppy energy, she loves to just lay next to you and sneak in a nap while you watch tv or read a book. Jelly loves to greet people with her wiggle butt and lots of kisses. She's growing everyday and learning new things about the world around her. Like how much fun playing ball and Frisbee are. Also, how easy it is to sometimes trip over your own paws (haha). One of my favorite things about Jelly is her ears! They are so cute! Sometimes sticking straight up or one ear straight up and the other flopped. Jelly is such a sweet girl, so full of life, who will bring such joy and love to anyone's life!

    Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Male Male

    Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Three pit bull mix puppies were rescued after being posted on Craigslist at only 3 weeks old. Their mom was chained to a tree without food, water or shelter. The puppies were in a dirt floor chicken coop, without their mother. When the rescuers arrived most of the puppies had died. Eventually, the mom and these three survivors were rescued. Carmine can be a laid back and want to snuggle; however, he also loves to run after the Frisbee and play in the baby pool! Carmine loves to give kisses. He is shy when meeting new people but he is very curious about them. If a new person sits on a step or the floor he will slowly make his way and start giving kisses. Once he warms up he is a total love-bug goofball. Carmine is not found of dogs who try and dominate him but he does well with friendly pups. He will even snuggle with them. Carmine has never been around young children and he doesn't quite know what to think of them. He is an amazing boy! Please give him a chance!

    Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Just look at that face! Patient. Curious. Listening. She only wants to be with you and to hear you talk. And those eyes--one blue, one brown! Gaze into those eyes...and wait for sweet Lola's smile. What a remedy for screen-addiction! Just think of the things you can do with this super sweetheart by your side: Go for a run, take a long walk, snuggle on the couch with a book or a remote control. She'll be there! Need to run some errands? She loves her car rides! And Lola enjoys her baths, her ball, bed and Kong toy. She is house trained, and she's smart. Lola doesn't get into anything when left alone in the house, and she doesn't chew on anything but her toys. She knows "sit", "stay", "paw", "leave it", "no", and her favorite, "come"! She is good with dogs who are also good with dogs--but will not put up with cranky-pants dogs. We're not sure what Lola thinks about cats, but we hear she lived with one for a little while. She is good with kids. This doll is about 5 years old and weighs 42 pounds. Her family was forced to give her up because of an unfortunate housing situation and felt they had no other alternative. We know it must have broken her heart, so we are anxious for her to find just the right people to make her happy forever. She only wants to be with her people, to sit near the ones she loves. Lola will make a fine, easy addition to your home and into your heart. Please give us a call to meet this sweet pumpkin!

    Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Mickey is a patch-work pit bull mix, with a Mickey Mouse emblem on his back. He is a good boy who has been patiently waiting for a home to call his own. Mickey is selective with dogs he likes. Generally he loves people, but does not like people or dogs to get in his face, it just makes him nervous. So, he would be best in a home without little children who do not understand. He loves to play fetch and run through the yard! And he does great on walks...he absolutely LOVES walks! And since he is totally housebroken, he will want to take you for walks often. Mickey wants ALL of your attention and will be a great friend to the perfect person. Thank you! Hope to meet you soon!!

    Posted Breed: Jack Russell Terrier / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). One look a those eyes, and you can guess where this pretty girl gets her name! This Elizabeth Taylor is a little slow to warm up. We don't know much about her background, but whatever happened to her has made her a little nervous. She seems to do best when with another dogs...trusting other dogs before she trusts a human being. If you are gentle and take your time, soon Elizabeth Taylor will snuggle up to you for some cuddling. Elizabeth Taylor is a dainty ~28 lbs now. She has a low-to-medium energy level. And while she loves to run around the yard playing with the other dogs, she also knows when to chill out and snuggle on the couch. Elizabeth Taylor is about 1 1/2 years old. She is not a chewer, although she has chewed several electrical cords in her foster home (!!! but something has to power those bright blue eyes!) She won't chew a nylabone but likes peanut butter in her kong. She is good with kids and dogs, but we've not seen her with cats. She's still working on potty training and leash walking. Sometimes Elizabeth Taylor gets very scared and you will have to come to her rescue...picking her up to carry her to her safe place. While she gets nervous and afraid, she does not growl and does not seem to be so fearful that she would bite. Please get in touch to meet this beautiful girl with the amazing eyes! Elizabeth Taylor is looking for that perfect Richard Burton, or maybe Eddie Fisher, or no...maybe Richard Burton again... :) If you are interested in this sweet girl please fill out an application at: http://www.dogsaredeservingrescue.com/adoptable-dogs/adoption-application/
