Facts about Judah

  • Breed: Bulldog/American Staffordshire Terrier Mix
  • Color: Brindle - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Judah hasn't had the best life, and guess he was a discarded breeder. At around five years old, he came to us with some pretty severe damage to his face. He was beaten in the head and had a broken jaw, that although has healed, will be permanently disfigured. He also has buckshot peppered throughout his lower face. Our vet removed what he could, along with several broken teeth. His tail had been cut off, and we had to remove it all the way up to keep him from chasing it. He seems to have some hearing loss, but is not totally deaf and can hear up close.

Since he has been with us, we have learned quite a bit about him! He has a 100% Bulldog personality!!! Stubborn. Smart, sweet and stubborn!. He will need a handler who understands the breed and knows how to work with them! He is a dog that wants to know the rules.

He does fine with other dogs his size and larger. Smaller dogs and cats are a chase temptation.

He LOVES, LOVES, LOVES children!!!!!! Give this guy some kids to play fetch with him, and he is in heaven. He is currently being fostered with some boys and they are his very favorite people. He loves to play and since he probably didn't have much of a chance to do it before, it is an adorable site to watch his wrinkles go. He also loves to cuddle!

Judah's adoption fee is $200. <p> All MVPC dogs are heart worm tested, completely vetted, spayed/neutered, microchipped, crate trained and on a great potty training schedule.

ALL inquiries begin with a submitted adoption application, which is found on our website, DO NOT USE THE Petfinder/Adopt A Pet INQUIRY/CONTACT/ADOPT BUTTONS--we are unable to monitor those--only submitted applications through our website will receive a response once approved. We do not adopt to individuals under the age of 25 and do not consider an electric fence a form of confinement. Because we are volunteer based and a home visit is required, we have a two hour adoption radius from Kettering, OH for our adult dogs and 75 miles for our puppies. Thank you for your understanding!

About Miami Valley Pit Crew

About Our Rescue Group...

The Miami Valley Pit Crew (MVPC) is a network of volunteer foster homes dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of abused, neglected and misunderstood dogs and puppies. Though we rescue all breeds, we specialize in Bully and working breeds: Bull Dog breeds, Pit Bull breeds, Mastiff breeds, Shepherd breeds and any mixes of the aforementioned. We take on the hard medical cases to give nice dogs a real chance at a forever home.

We pull dogs from Ohio kill shelters and we also educate owners and the public on bully breeds and Breed Specific Legislation (BSL).

The MVPC evaluates each rescue request to determine the dogs re-homing probability. We want to ensure each dog we take in can be rehabilitated into a family member. We work hard locally to educate bully breed owners and speak out against Breed Specific Legislation.

It all starts with an application FIRST. Once received, we will contact you and answer any questions you may have. It is found under the "Applications" tab on our website.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption fees are $200 for adult dogs, and $250 for puppies 8mo and under. Adoption fees may be more or less depending on breed, special needs, etc. This covers all vetting and allows us to take on hard cases.

It all starts with an application.

Our dogs are listed until the adoption paperwork is signed. Please submit an application for approval FIRST. We do not adopt out littermates together. We are a 100% foster-based, volunteer rescue so we are not able to respond to every inquiry about a dog (though we try) and we will respond to a request for an application or if one is submitted through our website. Please allow 72 hours for us to respond, and please check your spam/junk mail folder first, then send us an email if you believe we have not responded! Since we are foster-based, we have no centralized facility to visit. All of our dogs live in private homes as members of their respective foster families.

We require a physical fence for most dogs.

Once approved, we bring the dog to your home for a home visit. If all goes well at the home visit, the adoption is completed at that time.
