My name is Chevy and I am a purebred 7 year old red-nosed American Pit Bull Terrier. Don't let my age fool you; because as the saying goes, you're only as old as you feel...and I feel GREAT! When people first meet me they're shocked when they find out my real age. Most people think I'm 1-2 years old; and that's exactly how I feel! I am a very sweet and loving dog who loves to give and receive lots of affection. I am house trained, crate trained, up to date on my vaccinations, microchipped, spayed, and heartworm negative. I get along very well with other dogs (big and small), and even cats. I currently live with a 100 pound Pit Bull mix named Roscoe whom I've become best friends with, a 40 pound Australian Cattle Dog, a 15 pound Pomchi, and several cats...and I get along great with all of them! I promise that you couldn't ask for a sweeter, and more lovable dog than me. When my hero at Fluffy Friends Rescue first rescued me I was very skittish of human males because I came from a household where the male of the house abused me. However, my rescue Mom was so patient with me and worked with me, and after being in her loving care for two years now, I am no longer showing any signs of my prior abuse. Isn't that wonderful? I think so! As much as I love my rescue Mom, I'd love to find a family to call my own. Unfortunately, too many people judge me solely on my breed, which makes me very sad because I love all people, dogs, and cats! I have so many great qualities if you'll just give me a chance. I walk very well on a leash, know basic commands, and would make a wonderful addition to any family. I've been trying my best to become the best dog I can be so a wonderful family would be proud to call me their own. The only issue I have is if I am left unattended for too many hours at a time I will be very excited to see you when you get home and I am a little hyper at first. Who wouldn't be though? I just want you to know how much I missed you and I want to spend time with you. However, my hyperness only lasts about 15 minutes, maximum, then I am so happy to be with you that I calm right down. Of course, if you take me outside when you get home then I can run around and play and that will help me calm down faster.
As I am still a young dog with lots of energy, I would prefer a home with a backyard where I can run and play with you. I don't think I would do too well in an apartment. That is, unless you will make a point to take me on a couple of walks every day and find me an off leash dog park where I can expel some of my energy.
My favorite game is fetch and I am not to proud to say that I can outrun any other dog that I have seen. Yep, I'm that fast! I am told that I look adorable when I'm running too! If you come meet me we can go to a dog park and I can show you.
If you would like to meet me to see if I am a good fit for your family, and to see if your family is a good fit for me, please call the wonderful lady who rescued me, Tracy. You won't be sorry. Of course, you better hurry. I am such a great dog that there must be lots of people who would love to adopt me and I wouldn't want you to miss out on having the best dog around. I hope to see you soon!
Love, Chevy

About Fluffy Friends Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

My name is Tracy and I founded Fluffy Friends Rescue in 2005. My reasoning was simple. I was (and still am) forced to be out of work due to a horrible auto accident that left me disabled. I was an industrial electrician before my accident who was use to working 60-84 hours a week. Let's just say I had a lot of time on my hands. I began to notice the over-abundance of feral cats in Newman, CA. where I started Fluffy Friends Rescue. So, that's when my mission began. I am also deeply involved in feeding several colonies of feral cats & performing TNR on all of them trying to reduce the population & get them to be stable colonies. I am a registered Kitty Caretaker in the county of Stanislaus. I initiated a project of caring for a colony of feral cats at Orestimba High School in Newman. After performing TNR on several cats; I had to reluctantly turn the project over to another trusted caretaker in Newman when I moved 125 miles south.
I have always been an animal lover so this came natural to me. Not to mention my first colony was at my house which made it easy for me. In performing TNR I notice that not all of the cats in the colony are feral. This is where rescuing the tame cats comes in. Not only that but if I trap a feral mom to get spayed & she is pregnant I am not going to allow the vet to abort kittens. So, I quarantine feral mommy until she has her babies. Then I start handling them as soon as possible (around 2 weeks old). By doing this we have tame kittens that can be adopted out instead of more feral cats on the property and in the colony. Before releasing mom back to the colony or adopting the babies, they all get spayed or neutered and vaccinated. The reason to quarantine any new cat being brought in a house with other cats is to make sure she doesn't have any diseases that can be passed on to the other cats. All new cats being brought inside (either feral mommy's or tame rescues) receive a FIV/FeLV combo test. This test will determine if the cat is infected with either feline Aids or Leukemia.
Feral cats don't have a chance at the pound. They are immediately euthanized, killed, just because they don't want to be touched by humans. They have no hope for adoption so that is the only alternative the county chooses to enforce. They could choose TNR (Trap, Neuter, Return). However, their policy has always been Trap and Remove. In other words, they trap and kill. I believe it is an incredibe injustice to kill an animal for the sole reason that it exists. I just want to have a voice for these cats who can't speak for themselves.

Our Adoption Process...

First a potential adopter makes contact with me that they are interested in a dog or cat that I have up for adoption. The very first thing I do is speak with them regarding adoption to try to determine if they are serious and ready for the responsibility of being a pet owner. Then, I have them fill out an adoption questionaire. If this is done in person, while I am looking over the questionaire, I invite the family to play with/hold the cat or dog. I encourage lots of play time & then we sit down & I talk about responsible pet ownership. If it is a cat I tell them cats can live up to 20 years & I ask them if they are prepared to have another family member that relies on them for the next 20 years (and that you can't just give away). I talk a little about the breed but encourage them to go home & do research on their specific breed so they will get to know their animal better & why he does the things he does. Not to mention you need to learn what type of medical issues & possible behavioral issues the animal may have. All in all it's a good learning experience & it will make you feel more prepared. I talk about the financial responsibilities of owning a pet. I remind them that unless they are planning on taking the pet everywhere you go; you need to stop & think about him/her before just taking off. (This is especially true for couples with no kids.)
I also go over all of their vaccination history & show them their certificate of spay / neuter & rabies tag & certificate & when everything is due. I also write it down for them, when their next vaccinations are due. If they like the animal then usually the coming up weekend I come to their house & do a home inspection to make sure it is a safe environment for the pet. This also gives me a chance to see how both the potential adopters & the pet interact with one another in their home environment. If I am completely comfortable with adopting the animal to these people then they pay a specified adoption fee and they sign a contract. Part of the contract, besides saying they will care for the animal, keep it up to date on its vaccinations, and a skew of other important factors in caring for an animal; it also prevents them from ever giving away or selling the animal to someone else. If for any reason, they can no longer keep the animal they must contact me & give me the first opportunity to take the animal back in. This is solely done to prevent those animals from ending up back on the streets, or even worse, in an Animal Control facility. This also gives the adopter peace of mind in knowing the animal will be in good hands in the unfortunate event/ situations that require owner surrenders.
