Sugar is a 2 year old Pit Bull mix. She somehow found herself at animal services with a litter of puppies. The shelter staff put Sugar's pups up for adoption, but she was scheduled to be euthanized. We just couldn't bear seeing her get put down because she wasn't as "adoptable" as her puppies.
Sugar adores people of all ages. In fact, her foster mom says she acted as the welcoming committee when new neighbors moved in...they loved her! She is good with other dogs, too.
Sugar is a true Florida girl - she loves to lay outside and relax at the beach. She is in heaven if she gets to lay out in the sun.
Summer is fast approaching. If you are looking for a super cool dog to chill out on the beach with, fill out an app for Sugar today!

Mary Beth actually passed the Pit Bull Ambassador test at HCAS, but unfortunately, she is heartworm positive. Since heartworm treatment is expensive and requires a quiet, relaxed environment, the shelter was unable to treat. But no worries, she is now with a RRinc foster to start her recovery.
Mary Beth has completed her heartworm treatment is all ready to find her furever home! This girlie is cat, kid, and dog friendly. She is an absolute delight and is sure to make you smile.

|Wish's intake photo at animal services. Notice the urine-stained |
legs and open sores.
"Wish" is a female blue and white Pit Bull Terrier who is being pulled tomorrow, 4/13, from Orange County Animal Services.

Wish is safe and sound! She and her daughter, Twinkle, arrived Friday evening. Thanks to Summer in Orlando for holding them overnight and Stephanie for transporting them to Tampa.
But now, Wish never has to worry about that fate again. She will never have to wonder if she will get dinner every night, or whether she will ever be allowed out of her crate. Her life from here on out will be a "wish" come true.
So, if you are looking for a Pittie girl with an awesome personality, Wish is your girl. She is a fantastic example of the trusting and forgiving nature of this breed - she literally was on death's doorstep because of human negligance, but she still adores people.

Cajun is a stunning chocolate and white male Pit Bull Terrier. He was picked up by an Animal Control Officer in Highlands County. His owners were contacted, but they never came to get him. Now, he is safe with our rescue and ready to find his forever family!
Cajun is a gentle and well-mannered dog. He takes treats gently, walks well on the leash, and doesn't jump up on people. He is pretty calm and quiet and would probably adapt well to just about any home. He will be starting his basic obedience training shortly.
Stay tuned for updates on the handsome Cajun!
Cajun is doing great! He has really come out of his shell in the past 2 days and is showing what a fantastic personality he has. He has been out to play with Gumbo for short periods of time, and both of them are getting along perfectly. They would run around together all day if they could!
Cajun has also been a good boy about crate/housetraining. He doesn't care to go in his crate, but doesn't fight it either. Once he's there, he is quiet and relaxed. He is still learning not to barge out the crate door as soon as it opens, though.
We haven't introduced him to the rest of the pack yet (waiting until after neutering on Wednesday.) He has had some nose-to-nose interactions with the cats, and acted like he wanted to play. I probably wouldn't place him in a home with a timid cat that would run from him, but if the cat was more assertive, it wouldn't be a problem.

T-Bone is an absolutely gorgeous American Staffordshire Terrier. He was hit by a car and taken to an emergency vet. He went through his medical screening and it was discovered that he had a fractured pelvis. The vet tried to locate owners, and when that came up dry, they contacted rescues. We took him in and we are glad we did!
More info coming soon.
