It has been a busy summer for us!  Part of that business was welcoming this new gorgeous boy, Carter, into the PLP family. Carter had a family up until recently, when his mom moved to a new rental that does now allow dogs. Who does that???  She gave Carter to an ex-boyfriend to take care of, thinking he would be safe and happy, but shortly after that he decided to return him to the yard of the home she had moved out of. Sadly, this is where he stayed for a week, 24 hours a day, alone, with no food or water until neighbors noticed he was there. Thankfully his mom also discovered he had been dropped off in the fenced yard and both she and the neighbors contacted us hoping to get him into good hands. As luck would have it, we just happened to have a foster home ready for a new foster pup and they stepped up for him.

Carter is only 9 months old and is a really, really nice boy. He is great in the car, listens nicely, well mannered, and is super sweet. His good manners are so far impressive for such a young dog, but we are sure there is still some puppy mischief left in there! After all, we can’t expect a 9 month old pup to have enough life experience to know everything he needs to know.  However, Carter is very eager to please and a super smart boy who is ready and eager to learn.  He seems to really just want to feel included as part of a family. Carter is great with other playful dogs and would love a canine sibling to romp and wrestle with.  A fairly active, fun loving family that will ensure he gets enough exercise for a boy his age would be perfect for him!  If this sounds like your family, this gorgeous boy would love to meet you!

To meet Carter, please visit our website,, to submit an adoption application.  Dalton is neutered, microchipped and vaccinated. His adoption fee is $300.00 and includes doggie kisses and a lifetime of LOVE. 

About Pitties.Love.Peace

About Our Rescue Group...

Pitties.Love.Peace, Inc, is a non-profit organization based out of Central PA, devoted to the rescue and rehabilitation of pit bull and bully mix dogs and puppies. We are an all volunteer group that relies solely on the generosity of donations to care for all of our dogs. Many dogs come to us with serious medical needs; others simply needing love for the first time in their lives. Whatever is needed, we provide.

Pit bulls are one of the most mistreated, misunderstood and misrepresented breeds of all time. It is our mission to save those neglected and suffering at the hands of humans and adopt them into loving forever homes.

We also serve as advocates for the breed we love so much. We work tirelessly to educate the public on the truth about pit bulls and pit bull type dogs. Our hope is to one day restore their reputation to what it once was.
