Rowdy is a 2-4 year old pit bull. He is very laid back and loves to just lounge around. He does not like a ton of commotion. He would prefer to be in a very low key home. He is sometimes picky about who he likes but likes most people as long as they are not to loud or boisterous. He would prefer to be the only dog in the home but could potentially get along with another extremely low key dog. He seems to ignore cats and can coexist with them just fine. He is crate trained and housebroken. If you would like to make Rowdy apart of your family please contact us to fill out an application.

About S&S Kennels

About Our Rescue Group...

We have a mission statement. It's on our Facebook page. But the story goes. We have always been around dogs. Grew up showing and breeding miniature and later standard schnauzers. At some point we developed a love for bigger breeds as well. Especially the working dogs. We lost a child 7 years ago. And happened to be boarding our 6 dogs at the property owned by the same people who hold the county contract. They knew of our son. Knew that we had spent over 3000 volunteer hours in our youth at the city shelter. And said we have seen how well trained your dogs are over the years. And we have a few that could use some work. From there. They figured out that we had a knack I guess you could call it for handling large unruly dogs that most people either won't handle or aren't sure how to. We began fostering one dog at a time. Since then it has grown. We have taken in somewhere around 400 dogs and trained and revoked successfully all but about 30 of them. We normally take in only dogs that have been identified as unadoptable at the shelter or rescue they are at. We spend extensive time on daily socialization cats kids other dogs. Etc. All of our fosters 15 slots at a time live in our house with us. We decided a long time ago that if they were in kennel buildings it was the same as the shelter they were just in and for most dogs that's ok. Ours typically require a few months of help in house to become good adoptions.
We recently moved to a five acre property that we had zoned ahead of time specifically for what we do. We are approved for six additional buildings on the property as well as the two existing. We are in constant contact with several animal control officers in different areas. As well as county and city shelters.
We are primarily privately funded. We fund our foster program primarily from our boarding and training income. Always have. We do receive donations of food sometimes in trade for services with some of the larger shelters we deal with.
The rest we do. We do charge for boarding and training. Primarily behavior training. As our philosophy is that if behavior is in line. Obedience isn't far behind. We have all seen obedience trained dogs. That are not sound animals. Cart before the horse. We keep our prices way below our "competitors" because we want to help good dogs stay in good homes. If we can help with that thru training then we don't see it at the shelter 6 months later because the owner couldn't afford to have their dog trained. So. I would say. In short that's us. S&S Kennels. But obviously what you just read was not short. What I can say is. If you doubt us. Come see us. We are friendly people. And the dogs here that aren't yet. Will be soon enough.

Our Adoption Process...

We have a $125 adoption fee as that allows us just enough to rescue the next dog and make sure it gets spayed/neutered and up to date on vaccines. We have an adoption application that all potential adopters must fill out. Then we always do a home visit before our dogs are adopted. We also have our adopters sign contracts stating they received all necessary information on the dog and the contract also states that if for any reason that the dog can not remain in the home it immediately comes back to us. It also stars that we are able to check up on any of our dogs at our digression.
