Hello all you lovelies! I'm Ruth and I'm kinda new to this whole rescue thing! I currently live at the shelter. So many nice people take care of me and in return, I'm a good girl! I walk splendidly on a leash and let me tell you, I love going for my walks! I'm slowly regaining my pre-puppy figure and I think I'm looking just splendid!

I love to play with other dogs, I just need to be introduced to them properly at first. I also love attention and cuddles with my humans. Do you think I could bunk at your place...forever?

Gateway Pet Guardians is proud to offer a variety of mixed breed dogs available for adoption. However, please keep in mind that we rarely know the genetic background of the animals we rescue and, as such, we cannot guarantee the exact breed combinations found within this dog. Further, because 'pit bull terrier type dog' is not a breed we can list and because this dog has a blocky head and other characteristics that make the public perceive him/her as a pit bull, we are listing him/her as a pit bull mix. However, we do not know his/her actual genetic makeup. Just know that this dog is probably a variety of several different breeds that have combined to create one very amazing and unique animal.

Our Adoption Process...

Once you find an animal that you are interested in, submit an adoption application through our website and we will send your information to the foster family. Once we have reviewed the application and contacted your references, we set up a home visit.

Adoption fees are $150 for adult dogs and $195 for puppies. This fee includes shots, a spay/neuter and microchipping, as well as any other treatment the animal may have needed upon being rescued.
