adopt a pit

YIKES! I just found out I’m the longest resident EVER at the animal control shelter  in Athens, Georgia.

Hi, I’m Biz, and I asked my best volunteer friend why no one had picked me. She said it’s really just because everyone at the shelter loves me too much to let me go! AWWWW!

Then she admitted that was selfish and she ran right out and asked the Shelter Pet Project to feature me, and here I am!

As you can tell, I’m super-happy. I love to give kisses and play  with the other dogs at the shelter. I’m cheerful, affectionate, and playful. I have a great sense of humor and some pretty awesome ears!

I haven’t mastered that “fetch” game the humans like so much, but I can toss my own ball in the air and catch it all day! Also, when I feel like some love, I will just lie right next to you and plop my paws in your lap! BEST. THING. EVER. Guaranteed!

And when I know you have treats? Wait til you see my puppy dog eyes!

I’m two years old, healthy, neutered, and weigh 45 pounds of pure sweetness. To learn more or meet me, just email my buds at   info@athenspets.net.

Not near me? Re-blogging saves lives!

Love,

Biz

this is Ellie a two year old pit mix who needs a home! please someone in the dfw area help me get her adopted
i love her so much she deserves the world and i wish i could keep her desperately but i can’t because im not allowed to have another dog
she’s great with people and loves other dogs, is house trained, and all around the sweetest angel
i need her to go to a good home she doesn’t deserve to go back to a shelter
please help spread the word, her forever home could be someone who follows you!
ive been crying all day about this and i just want her to be loved

I was hanging out at the local shelter where I’d been living for MONTHS!!! when my new friends from Adopt-a-Dog in Armonk, New York, saw me and said, “WOAH!” #awsomedogalert

Next thing I know, I’m enrolled in obedience school – where I’m a superstar – and learning great new things called “agility” and “long walks.” #amazing

They were learning about me, too, and found out that when I love, it’s for life, baby! #trueblue

I think I’d like to be an only pet, but I like the ladies, so if you know a mellow girl dog, I’m willing to make an exception! #girlsrule

Sound interesting? You can call 914-273-1674 -or email adoptions@adoptadog.org to find out more or set up a meeting. #easyaspie #pieisalsogood

Can’t get to New York? No worries! Reblog me, and it’s almost as good! #notreally #countingonyouranyway

Love,

Winston

Stop with the pit bull propaganda. Literally any dog can end up being dog aggressive and it's not because of their breeds.

Now wait minute y’all. I’m going to defend Cat because if you’ve been following this blog long, and you’ve read our dog FAQs, you know our stance on APBTs

We love them. Block heads are the best. And BECAUSE we love them, we accept their genetics. 

There is an article I read that literally takes the words right out of my mouth, and I encourage you to read it. It is about how we are NOT saving these dogs because we are pushing them to be what they aren’t. “Lab/Shepherd mixes” and “Nanny Dogs,” and “it’s all how you raise them” are all damaging to the breed. 

Ignoring how a dog might turn out, and putting them in a compromising situation, is how these dogs get a bad rap. As I have said time and time again, genetics do not guarantee behavior, BUT they should never be ignored! 

Why would you say, “i would never get a beagle, they bay too much..” or “Pit Bulls aren’t aggressive, have you ever met a Chihuahua?!” or “I could never get a Border Collie, they’re too energetic.” OR “Corgis love to nip at children’s heels.” BUT not “Pit bulls don’t do well with other dogs.” 

How come we ignore their traits, but heed the warnings of every other breed? Why don’t you suggest that 9-5 single business man to get an Australian Shepherd, but encourage a 3 dog household to adopt a pit? Like? Do you get what I am saying? I really hope you read this article:

All right my wonderful people, these two gorgeous babes desperately need our help.
These are the two from a reblog the other day located in Leesburg, Fl 34748. They are in need of homes!

Some background information about them that we’ve seen so far:

Ruby (black) :
This once mother is a very sweet girl who can’t be much more than 5 years old at the very most. (based solely on my own personal experience with pits and dogs in general.) She’s eager to learn and please and has a thing for toys. She can be a little rowdy once you first get home, but soon settles and is happy to just lay next to you and sleep.
With the right amount of love and dedication to training she could make an amazing family member.

Delilah (brindle) :
This little girl seems to be a few years younger than Ruby, possibly in the 1-2 year range but is just as eager to please and learn. She doesn’t jump like Ruby does but does have some shyness and skiddish tendencies from what we assume was physical abuse.
She is an adorable sweetheart who just wants to love and be loved. She also seems to be the quieter of the two.

Ideally we’d hate to see this pair separated because they’ve so clearly bonded and are showing some separation anxiety from one another, but if the right homes for both of them are with two different families then arrangements can be made.

I’m sorry this post is so long but please, if you’ve made it this far share this with everyone and let’s get these two their furever homes.
Also, if you’re in the area and would like to meet them or know of someone who would take good care of them give a shout to myself or @promisesofamazing and we’ll make things happen!

I will be sharing updates as the pair gets checked out by a vet and temperaments are tested.
As of right now we see potential for them to be good with children and potential to be good with other dogs given the right introductions and handling, as Ruby has shown what could be aggression to at least one of the smaller dogs in the home.
Updates will happen hopefully every two/three days.

Thank you! 💛

Bunny here, hopping right into your heart!

I’m still waiting at Providence Animal Center​ in Media, Pennsylvania, for you awesome friends to reblog me and help me find my heart’s desire: a home! #dreamscometrue

As you can tell, I’m a bouncy girl, healthy and happy, just one year old. I love my toys, playing, cuddling I know tricks like giving kisses on cue, and am housetrained and walk nicely on a leash. #superstar

One trick I haven’t learned is getting along with other pets, but I more than make up for it with an impressive array of different ear positions – I could probably be an Internet sensation! #thegoodkindofviral

Want to know more? Hop on over to your email and contact adoptions@providenceac.org!

Love,

Bunny

You know who lives up to their name? ME!  I’m Snuggler, and boy do I love to snuggle!

Now, when you see me, you might think I had a pretty awful past, but that is alllll behind me. I have met the nicest, most loving people here at Providence Animal Center in Media, Pennsylvania, and boy do I love to snuggle up to them and get lots of good pets!

They tell me that if I can get you to reblog me, I will have a family all of my own who will let me snuggle them and they might kiss me on the head and tell me what a good boy I am! I can’t tell you how nice that all sounds.

My loving doesn’t stop with humans (of all ages, by the way). I like some other dogs, too, and feel most comfortable with them around if my humans have to leave me alone, so my home should have a calm (female) friend for me to keep me company.

I am crate trained and need a home without cats. At about 6 years young, I can fill your life with more love than you can imagine. Please share me, or email my friends at adoptions@providenceac.org to learn more about me, today!

Love,

Snuggler
