Bruno was our first official rescue animal and although he has been with us for a long time, we know it's because we have not found the right forever home for him. Bruno was found wandering on a busy road near our rescue. We eventually found out he was tethered to a tree and was fortunate enough to escape on his own. When we found Bruno, our veterinarian diagnosed him with heartworm. He went through the extensive treatment and has been cleared for over a year now. Bruno was actually adopted to a family in 2014, but we took him back for reasons we do not want to disclose here.

Bruno gets along very well with other dogs. He has been with our foster and their 3 adult dogs for over 6 months now and they are thick-as-thieves. Just like any adult dog, there will be an adjustment period, but Bruno has definitely shown the ability to be a part of any crew!

Bruno is housetrained, neutered, current on all vaccines, and crate trained. Bruno sleeps in his crate every night and is very comfortable staying in the crate during the day for those who have work, school, etc. He does very well on walks and really only barks when you walk in the door. He does play fetch and knows his basic commands. Bruno will make a great addition to anyone's home. We really feel that he is an ambassador for his breed because he is just one big lovebug who wants nothing more than to snuggle up next to you while you watch TV.

About The Chick With Pits

About Our Rescue Group...

The Chick With Pits was founded by Joanna Goodman in 2013 as a result of her passion for rescuing, rehabiliting, and rehoming animals of all shapes and sizes. As a child, no one was ever surprised at the "critters" she brough home. From hurt field mice to baby birds who had fallen from their nests to newborn opossums she raised and released into a wildlife reserve, Joannna's love for animals started the day she was born. Joanna spent the majority of her adult life in the pet industry working at small pet supply shops and corporate grooming salons. After following her husband during his career in the United States Air Force, the two settled in northeast Texas to begin rescuing animals in an official capacity.

The Chick With Pits is headquarted on Joanna and her husband's property in northeast Texas. Along with her 10 rescued dogs, 4 rescued cats, 4 rescued sugar gliders, and 2 rescued rabbits, Joanna and her leadership team, volunteers, and network of fosters and other supporters provide a no-kill animal rescue and sanctuary for every animal they come across.

The hope is for every animal that passes through the rescue's doors to find a loving forever home, but many animals cannot be rehomed for a variety of reasons. In those situations, The Chick With Pits provides a sanctuary for those animals to live the rest of their lives in an environment where they receive the proper attention they deserve through generous sponsorships of kennels.

Joanna considers herself "The Chick With Pits" because she has owned a variety of pit bull and pit bull mixes and treasures their loyalty, compassion, and intelligence despite the negative perception of the breed. In addition to the rescue and sanctuary, Joanna owns and operates The Chick With Pits Pet Services, which is a full-service pet services provider donating 25% of its profits to the rescue operations of its sister-company.

Our Adoption Process...

Qualifications for adoption:
1. Must be 21 years or older with identification showing present address.
2. Must have the knowledge and consent of all adults living in the household.
3. Must receive proof of pet deposit and lease allowing pets if renting.
4. Must be able and willing to spend the time and money necessary to provide any necessary training, medical treatment and responsible care for a pet.

Please understand that we attempt to place our animals in the home best suited to them, therefore, if we feel the animal and applicant are not compatible, we retain the option to deny any application.

The Chick With Pits requests a tax deductible donation for each dog to defray medical and boarding costs, and to further the mission of The Chick With Pits. We also feel a valid argument can be made that households for whom this amount represents an undue burden may well discover the financial demands of pet ownership a difficult burden as well.

By submitting an application you are certifying that the information contained within this application is true and agree to terms established within it.

Our adoption fee for dogs is $175 and is due when the adoption contract is signed.
