Facts about Annabeth

  • Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier/Boxer Mix
  • Color: White - With Tan, Yellow Or Fawn
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Our little catepillar has developed into a beautiful butterfly. Where she once stood no chance at the shelter for being heartworm positive, incredibly shy and undersocialized, and returned from her adopter after only 4 days, she now has a future that is bright, hopeful, and full of happiness.

Annabeth has gone from stone faced and tail tucked, to silly faced wiggly butt who loves to jump like a bunny, buck like a bronco, and belly crawl like a soldier. Her favorite past time is to chew, but she also loves to play chase, tag, and wrestle with her foster brother Otis (also on our page). If you want to see complete raw and unfiltered joy, put her in a room with carpet. She is sure to make you laugh! Her tail never stops wagging, and you can't help stroking her silky soft fur, especially on her ears. She knows how to use those gorgeous fawn colored eyes to hypnotize you into getting what she wants as well. It's hard to fight the temptation! On a scale of 1-5 of the snuggle factor, Annabeth scores a 5. She loves to snuggle close and has the sweetest little groans and grunts as she gets comfy.

Would she be the life of the party dancing on the table belting out karaoke songs with a lampshade on her head? No, not unless she is in a room by herself when she thinks no one is looking. Otherwise, you would find her just hanging out quietly with her best friend. Cautious and timid by nature, she needs some time to investigate new situations and get the lay of the land, and enjoys a quiet environment. You would be more likely to find her at a symphony than a rock concert.

If we had to describe her as a Disney character, we would probably choose Piglet: She is sweet, cute, shy, doesn't want to make a fuss, polite, very loyal to her friends, and pink! Annabeth has 50 shades of pink varying from the palest of pastels when she is calm & relaxed to fuschia if she is feeling stressed or has been running around.

Annabeth is a true Southern belle. She greets with all fours on the floor, takes treats nicely from your hand, waits patiently at meal time for her turn to eat, looks at you when you are speaking to her and does not interrupt. When playing outside with her four-legged siblings, she will gladly allow them to have the stick or rope toy and just wait for the next one or find something else to do.

A few things not on her top 10 list of favorite things are: cats, balls, the washing machine, and moving vehicles (however, she LOVES car rides).

Annabeth has just undergone and completed heartworm treatment is on monthly prevention, so she is now ready for adoption. Those who have met her, just love her. For more photos and videos of Annabeth, please visit our our facebook page.

The shelter software system requires us to choose a predominant breed or breed mix for our dogs. Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable, so for most of our dogs we are only guessing predominant breed or breed mix. We encourage you to select your new companion by considering each dog's individual personality and pet qualities instead of relying on a breed label that is only a guess.

About Lizzie's Hand: Helping Abandoned & Neglected Dogs

About Our Rescue Group...

Lizzie's HAND: Helping Abandoned & Neglected Dogs is a one woman rescue dedicated to helping homeless dogs. The journey began in 1998 following the death of my mom, Elizabeth. Within 2 weeks of her death, a little old and grouchy Boston Terrier was curled up by my vehicle as I was leaving work. I was one of the last to leave, heavy rain was about to roll in, and I couldn't leave him there to fend for himself. Once he finally got in my car, we headed home. From that point on, I feel my mom puts dogs in need in my path. We found a home for the little old Boston we named Roscoe, but for years after that, it was really hard to part with the dogs we brought in.

Finally in 2012, we took in a pittie puppy dumped near our home who was bald from mange and sick from secondary skin infections and intestinal parasites. It took a lot to get her healthy, and as much as I loved her, I knew it was BEST for her to find her a loving family where she could be the center of attention and showered with more love than she could ever imagine. After the start she had, she deserved that. It was the most bittersweet moment when I handed her over to her new mom, but knew she would be theirs forever, and they would give her the life I wanted for her. If I kept her, I wouldn't be able to take in another in need.

I have a passion for helping those who cannot speak for or help themselves, and although my heart is big enough for everyone, I have a soft spot for those dogs most deem unlovable or not worth loving...the big heads, the scarred, the overbred saggy mommas. I was one who believed the poison infused by the media into minds of people about pit bull type dogs, but after being around them, I was able to make up my own mind and learn the truth. Every dog is an individual, just like people, and should be evaluated on their own merit.

I am a one woman rescue with a family, a job, and our own pets, so will answer any inquiries as quickly as possible and ask for your patience. I know when you are ready to adopt a new pet, and you are drawn to one, you want things to proceed as quickly as possible, so I will do what I can to make that happen. As much as I want to help every dog in need, I cannot, BUT will do my best to direct you to someone who can.

Every dog deserves a chance, and I will do whatever I can to help the neglected, abandoned, abused so they may experience the love everyone wants.

Our Adoption Process...

application fee paid via Pay Pal.

scheduled to meet all members of the
household and other pets if applicable.

4) If home environment is proven to be a
good fit for the dog, a meet 'n greet will

and lifestyle, adoptions and possession

Prior to requesting an application, please consider these items:

***ALL of our adoptable dogs have come to
us from an undesirable life of
mistreatment, abuse, or neglect, and
they deserve to live as loved family
members in the home as they have lived
in their foster home. They will not be "an
outside dog".

***To adopt a bully breed looking dog,
adopter must be at least 21 years of age
and own their own home. Obtaining
rental housing which allows bully breeds
is difficult to find, and in the event of a
move, the dog is often surrendered
because of housing policies.

***ALL residence and references will be
verified, so please make sure you
provide complete and accurate
information on your application. Failure
to do so will result in automatic
disqualification of your application.

Our policies are put in place in the best interests of the dogs so they may live a rich long life. If you have read over our policies and are in agreement, please message the page or email us for an adoption application:
