Facts about Pearl

  • Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier/Dalmatian Mix
  • Color: White - With Black
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: Pearl
Pearl is a youthful 9 year old female Dalmatian and Staffordshire Terrier mix. She is lightly spotted with striking black ears. She is fully housebroken, obedient and well-behaved, with a “spring in her step” attitude. She requires no training, and knows how to use a “doggy door”. While she is content running around the back yard, chasing her two foster brothers, and playing fetch or tug-of-war with the rope, she loves to go for walks as well.

Pearl is an extremely affectionate and loving girl, as can been seen from the photos provided by her foster family. She is in very good health, spayed, micro chipped, and current on all her vaccinations. An easier adoption couldn’t be found!

By way of background, Pearl was originally placed as a 1 year old by Save The Dals in 2008. However, a change in her family’s home dynamic resulted in her family asking us to find her a new safe and loving home. Pearl was surrendered when her family’s other dominant and very elderly female dog became aggressive, and the family felt Pearl had a better chance of re-homing (as opposed to the 13 year old mate). Pearl’s family was devastated by this decision and it is Save the Dal’s quest to find Pearl her forever fit. She would do well in a home with other male dogs or as a solo dog. She is also good with cats.

Pearl’s foster family indicate that she is terrific with all people from the very elderly to the young adult; and they believe she will live a long and full life well into her teens.

About Save the Dalmatians and Others Canine Rescue, Inc

About Our Rescue Group...

Who we are: Save the Dalmatians and Others Canine Rescue, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, tax-exempt organization dedicated to the rescue of Dalmatians from shelters, the promotion of adoptions of shelter Dalmatians and education of the public about the Dalmatian breed. We began in 1996 when founder Terri Haase and a friend started taking their Dalmatians to movie theaters during the showing of "101 Dalmatians" to distribute educational flyers in an attempt to stop impulse buying of Dalmatian puppies. Save the Dalmatians was formally incorporated as a California non-profit corporation in 1998. Our brochure provides more detail.

Further documentation on our 501(c)3 status may be requested by writing to Save the Dalmatians, 15507 S. Normandie Avenue #432, Gardena, CA 90247.

What we do: Save the Dalmatians and Others Canine Rescue specializes in rescuing Dalmatians, Dalmatian mixes and other breeds from shelters and finding new permanent homes for them.

We also provide placement support to others fostering rescued Dalmatians and to Dalmatian owners who wish to rehome their own Dalmatians.

Another very important function of our organization is public education about the Dalmatian breed. We disseminate information via mail, email, telephone and at adoption events. We also work with newspapers, radio and television to have information about Dalmatians published or broadcast.

Save the Dalmatians and Others Canine Rescue is an affiliate of the Dalmatian Assistance League. We are all unpaid volunteers.
