About: Sydney was found around midnight pacing on a bridge, confused. When a car drove by and stopped because she was in the way, Sydney tried to make contact somehow and get in but the car hit the gas and sped away leaving her all alone in a high risk coyote territory. No one knows how she ended up out there. The fact is no owners ever came forward and it was suspected that she was unsuccessfully used as a bait dog for a pitbull fighting ring. Physically - over twenty bite wound scars all over her body primarily on her back legs, a tight and heavy belt-like collar that caused a bad rash around her neck, ripped ear, body with spinal and rib cage bones protruding, a slight limp on her front paw. Mentally- very tense body and twitching/flinching associated with human touch, avoidance of male figures, timid and insecure behaviors. Sydney was very shut down when she first arrived. Over a course of a week she turned into a completely different pup - full of energy, happiness, eagerness to please and be a friend, friendly with other animals, a joy to take on walks and to the park etc. She learned what toys are for and how fun chasing a tennis ball is. She has shown absolutely no aggression no matter how fearful and in what situations she has been put in. She has done well with other dogs including little ones three times smaller than herself. If anything she is the type to want to avoid conflict/fights and would rather be in a relaxed environment versus being surrounded by chaos and loudness. Sydney is a lover, NOT a fighter. She acts like a goofball puppy. She deserves a chance at a forever loving home versus being skipped over and ignored because of the way she may look (pitbull stigma and bad reputation, even for dogs that may not be that particular breed but look like it). Meet her, get to know her, and then judge!

Come Meet Our Pets...

One on one meet/greets can be scheduled by calling or emailing for an appointment time and day. Hours are flexible.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process is fairly simple. The first step is to set up an appointment for a meet/greet. Every single person in the household including current pets must attend so that everyone is on the same page and it is a good fit. An application must be filled out in person. Trial adoptions are welcome in cases of potential allergy concerns, with people that have cats and want to introduce slowly etc. Adoption fees vary per animal. Every single animal that is adopted out comes spayed/neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, and has gone through basic training.
