Posted Breed: Mountain Cur / Mixed (short coat). www.thepitstoprescue.com "Your final stop for your furever friend!" Leonard is one of seven Mountain Cur mix puppies born the first night their mother was rescued after being dumped in Livingston Parish. Leonard will be a year and a half old on March 14, 2017. He weighs around 55 lbs. Leonard loves everyone and loves to give kisses. He seems to naturally flock to children. He is one happy go lucky little boy! Leonard needs an adopter who will spend time with him and make sure he gets proper exercise and attention. Leonard is SUPER smart — as are Mountain Curs dogs. He also has a super duper nose! Leonard has been introduced to and competed in “Barn Hunt” (a new dog sport). In his first trial, Leonard earned two qualifying runs/legs towards his Barn Hunt Novice title! Leonard would be a fun dog for someone who would like to get involved in Barn Hunt or tracking. Leonard gets along with other dogs and enjoys playing with them. He is extremely interested in squirrels and cats, so he needs a home without cats. Leonard is neutered, up to date on all of his shots, on heartworm prevention and has been microchipped. Adoption fee $100. For more information on Leonard, please go to www.facebook.com/TickfawThrowAway Please email norriegirl@gmail.com to request an adoption application. We require that ALL current household pets be spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations and up to date on heartworm prevention. We will require confirmation from your veterinarian. If renting, we must have landlord approval. A fence is not a requirement for ALL of our dogs. Fences are a case-by-case determination.

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Sex: Male Male

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Adoption Fee: 150.00. www.thepitstoprescue.com "Your final stop for your furever friend!" Meet Harvey AKA Yevrah (Ye-Va-Rah)! He is 4 weeks old and was rescued during Hurricane Harvey. For those who have been following Pit Stop Rescue for a while, you are aware of our hurricane rescue tradition! When we have a rescue from a hurricane, we reverse the name of the hurricane to name the rescue. This is to symbolize the hurricane that turned their world inside-out and the fact that they are now overcoming the trauma! Yevrah's story is a bit different from our other hurricane rescue stories! A group of angels from South Carolina travelled to Texas to help with Harvey relief. They came across an evacuated/abandoned puppy mill with several dogs left behind. These angels were able to get all the dogs to safety. Yevrah was the only pitbull so they reached out to us as they wanted to be certain that he would be well taken care of in a breed specific rescue. We are glad that not only did Yevrah survive Harvey, he was also broken away from a puppy mill which would have likely destroyed his quality of life. Pit Stop Rescue wants to say THANK YOU to these angels! Now, we need YOUR help! This little guy needs donations for vetting. While he is safe, he is in need of some vet attention. He has visited the vet twice already and has more visits ahead of him. As you can see in his pictures, his belly is awkwardly enlarged. This is due to intestinal parasites and possible water. Another contribution to this is that he is very constipated. He is currently on medication and a special diet to help him with this. Yevrah was also tested for possible ringworm as a result of the filth he was living in and the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. Lastly, he has started to limp on one leg. As a result of the hurt leg, enlarged abdomen and uncomfortableness he is experiencing, he is barely able to get around at this point. He will be returning to the vet again because we can see and feel his pain. Please go to www.thepitstoprescue to donate and help Yevrah no longer be uncomfortable. If you cannot donate, please share so we can get his story out in hopes of donations. If you are interested in fostering or adopting sweet Yevrah, please go to www.thepitstoprescue.com to complete the application today. We are accepting pre-adoption applications now, however, he will not be available to go home with his adopters until he is 8 weeks old and vet approved. We require that ALL current household pets be spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations and up to date on heartworm prevention. We will require confirmation from your veterinarian. If renting, we must have landlord approval. A fence is not a requirement for ALL of our dogs. Fences are a case-by-case determination.

Don't let this elegant patent leather pitty bull mix fool you though. She is just comfortable playing fetch and hunting mice as she is snuggling on the couch. Sandra Dee was found at about 6 weeks old on a chain with no food or water in the cold. Dee is now almost 2 and has learned how to be a good family member. She is wonderful with other dogs, good with cats that don't run, walks well on leash, is house trained, and uses a doggy door. Dee bonds closely with other dogs and would love to have a doggy brother or sister to play with during the day. Because she likes chasing squirrels, she will need a fenced in yard. She is super smart; knows 'sit' 'shake' 'lay down' and 'touch' and would make an excellent agility dog! And her silly antics will keep you laughing. Dee is heartworm negative, spayed, up to date on shots, microchipped and ready to start a new life with a loving active household.
