Facts about Janis Joplin

  • Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
  • Color: Gray/Silver/Salt & Pepper - With White
  • Age: Puppy
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Janis is a very special girl. She came to rescue after having a very bad start to her young life. This has left her very afraid of people. It takes her a long time to trust new people and even then she rarely seeks out affection. Despite that, she is a smart and sweet girl that loves other dogs and cats. She does like a good scratch and belly rub once you can get close to her. She is very quiet and often lazy, not your typical pitty puppy at all! Her front legs were bowed when she came to us, and they have straightened out great with lots of good food and play, but she still walks a little stiff legged in the front. Janis will need a special family that has lots of patience and can gently get her to trust them, realizing that she may never be a bouncy happy dog when they are around. She is potty trained and crate trained to sleep at night.

About Second Chance Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small rescue group located in Snyder, TX. All of our pets are kept in private homes by private fosters. We attend adoption events in Lubbock, TX on a regular basis and go to Abilene, TX on occasion. We also arrange for meet and greets here in Snyder when necessary. The rescue started in September of 2012 with rescuing one dog, and we quickly expanded our program. In the first 5 months of 2013 we have rescued 220+ dogs and about 15 cats. We are always looking for new fosters, volunteers and can always use donations. For every dog we can save there are 10X more that we can't. Our primary focus is on dogs, but we do help with kittens/cats when we can.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We are always available for private meetings in Snyder. We try to attend adoption events in Lubbock at the Petsmart on Slide Road at least twice a month ~ more when we have the volunteers to handle the event. We can arrange for transport to most places within 4 hours of Snyder and sometimes further. It never hurts to ask ~ we might have someone going your way.

Our Adoption Process...

All dogs and cats require an adoption application. All dogs and cats we pull from shelters are spayed/neutered before being adopted (without exception). Our adoption fee is $150 to cover basic vetting and rescue fees, unforseen vetting is absorbed by us. We try to return inquiries within 24 hours (Holidays may cause delays).
