Facts about Gage

  • Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix
  • Color: White - With Black
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Everyone say hello to Gage!

Gage had been turned in to animal control with another dog and when their time was up, one of our volunteers couldn't stand to see them euthanized. The other dog (Solomon) has since found a wonderful home and now Gage is more than ready for his!

Gage is a blast to play fetch with - he LOVES it. He is a very athletic dog that needs physical expenditure every day, but once he gets that, he loves to snuggle on the couch. He likes to go to bed by 9 and follows his foster mom around sullenly until she puts him to bed in his crate (His profile picture is him staring at her, waiting for bed). :)

Gage does get along well with other dogs that enjoy to play as much as he does. We would recommend a more submissive male or a female for a healthy dynamic.

He is about 3 years-old and a stocky 40lbs. He has been neutered, microchipped, fully vaccinated and is current on heartworm/flea/tick preventative.

About Fortitudine Vincimus - The Fort Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

The Fort is a Non-Profit, No-Kill Rescue dedicated to alleviating the suffering of all animals, in particular The American Pit Bull Terrier.

Serving animals in an area of North Carolina where well over 30,000 dogs enter into the local shelters every year. Sadly, the vast majority don’t stand a chance at life. Not only are they euthanized, but most suffer a horrific and inhumane death in antiquated, and many times not properly functioning, gas chambers.
“The Fort”-Fortitudine Vincimus Rescue Center, is a no kill, non-discriminatory rescue dedicated to alleviating the suffering of all dogs, in particular the American Pit Bull Terrier. This is an area where most dogs stand little to no chance of surviving once entering shelters, many of which have euthanasia rates of close to 90 percent. Entering the shelter, a Pit Bulls fate is all but sealed. Most local shelters refuse to allow them to be adopted and they are almost immediately euthanized more often than not.
We work with local shelters as well as many of the other foster based rescue groups in the area. We are currently in the process of trying to acquire a location, in order to help on a much larger scale by being the only rescue facility in an area that desperately needs help. We believe that every dog deserves a loving, caring home that will give them the best life possible, the life they deserve. We are avidly working towards improving the lives of all animals through education, promoting spaying and neutering to reduce overpopulation, thereby lowering shelters extremely high kill rates. Our focus is rescuing and adopting animals to loving homes that are looking to welcome a new member to the family. We believe in the humane treatment of all breeds and animals, no matter how large or small.
