My name is Sunny and MVPC rescued me from a shelter they work with closely, where they've found several people trying to cross-breed dogs like me. My Fomma says I'm stunning as a blonde merle catahoula pit mix with my beautiful blue eyes. I still have many puppy behaviors, even though I am close to 2 years old. My Fomma says that unlike many of the other rescue dogs, she is pretty sure I was a loved family member at one point. I adore children and have excellent manners inside the home. I truly aim to please my people. Overall, I'm a sensitive girl who needs a gentle, yet firm owner. I need continued confidence building and someone who will encourage me through new situations (but not allow me to get away with any shenanigans).

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.
