Facts about Peaty

  • Breed: American Bulldog Mix
  • Color: Brindle - With White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Our big boy Peaty is ready to find his forever home! Peaty has been with Redwood Pals Rescue for a long time as his foster mom had hoped that he would stay with her forever. Unfortunately, recent health issues (hers, not his) have left her feeling that he really belongs in a home where he can engage in more activities than she can provide. Peaty is about four years old, an American Bulldog mix weighing in at about 80 pounds. Peaty loves to play with other dogs and has done well with both males and females in the medium to large size range (35 pounds and up). Peaty is not a candidate for a home with cats or small dogs due to some working prey drive. Peaty has some good training on board; he walks well on the leash, rides well in the car and can wait patiently there during errands, and has used good manners in stores and banks. He is very affectionate and loves to cuddle with his favorite people. The vet is not his favorite place to visit, but has done well when treated gently and patiently.

If we could pick the perfect home for him, it would include a canine companion, adults who are confident with dogs and can convey their expectations, older children that would enjoy playing with him and teaching him new tricks and regular activity. Redwood Pals would include a consult with our local trainer to get everyone off on the right paw.

About Redwood Pals Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Redwood Pals Rescue was formed to keep the euthanasia rate low at our local county shelter which is a kill facility. We are an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to support rescue and adoption efforts of animals that are at risk in the Humboldt County Animal Shelter.

Some of the things we do:
* rescue animals in danger of being euthanized at the Humboldt County Animal Shelter

* place rescued animals into permanent adoptive homes;

* facilitate transportation of rescue animals to out-of-area rescue organizations, fosterers, and adoptive homes;

* train/rehabilitate rescue animals to facilitate their placement into permanent adoptive homes;

* to provide temporary foster of shelter animals with medical needs to facilitate their placement into permanent adoptive homes;

* provide educational outreach to promote the adoption of shelter and rescue animals as pets;

* improve the quality of life for animals at the Humboldt County Animal Shelter;

* encourage and facilitate proper veterinary care including vaccinations, spaying and neutering;

We always need: Donations! which can be sent to our P.O. Box or through Razoo. Fosters! We do not have a shelter of our own but instead rely on kennel space for our rescue dogs at the shelter (when it isn't full) or with our network of foster homes. We sometimes have to emergency board dogs to save their lives. We would rather have them in a foster home. Volunteers! if you are interested in volunteering let us know. We are a small group and could always use more help.
