ABOUT DOZER - LOVES DOGS AND KIDS
Dozer is simply amazing. He is the kind of dog we don't come across too often. He is perfect with dogs, kids, car rides, etc. He is friendly and sweet, walks very well on leash, is affectionate, and stunning. Dozer is nine years old but you wouldn’t know it. He has bursts of energy and is then content to snuggle next to you. He bonds strongly to his people, so a family who spends a lot of time at home, and maybe even works there, is ideal. He came into our rescue after being surrendered to the RISPCA and needing a surgery that was a bit outside of the scope of what the shelter could provide. Through funding from our generous supporters, we were able to give Dozer the surgery needed to remove two hernias from his groin and back end. He has recovered well in his foster home and is looking to start the next chapter of his life.

Dozer's adoption donation is $200.

About Handsome Dan's Rescue for Pit Bull Type Dogs

About Our Rescue Group...

We help with the placement, care and the overall wellbeing of dogs in local shelters, rescues, and other facilities throughout the state of Rhode Island.

We Provide Foster Homes
We advocate the rescue​ and placement of pit bull type dogs from local shelters previously considered "unadoptable" through a network of volunteer foster homes. Many dogs have been rescued from severe abuse and neglect, often including victims of dog fighting. Because the dogs in our program often require extra care, including medical, training and rehabilitation, our rescue is small by design.

We Give Enrichment to Shelter Dogs​
Long days of boredom can take their toll on even the most solid of dogs resulting in kennel stress. HDR's Enrichment Program pairs one of our enrichment specialists with a dog in crisis.

We take shelter and foster dogs through Outbound Hounds' Pit C.L.A.S.S.
Classes offered free to dogs in foster care or current residents of local shelters thorough our partnership with Outbound Hounds.

We Sponsor Free Spay/Neuter for At-Risk Dogs
Each year we are able to assist a small amount of owned dogs whose guardians are unable to afford the surgery. This program often results in at-risk dogs being able to stay in their homes rather than being turned in to local shelters.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of our adoptable dogs can be seen on our website (http://www.handsomedansrescue.org/) and at PetFinder.com. We will list special events on our website as well, and on Handsome Dan's facebook page.

Our Adoption Process...

We have a standard application that requires information about past and present pets, the home and yard, veterinary references and at least two non-relative references. All references are checked and a meet and greet is scheduled, typically in the foster home, prior to approval. A thorough home visit is then conducted (with photographs) and then we will allow the potential adopters to have any resident dogs and children meet the foster. HDR provides full support through and after the adoption process to minimize potential failures that can be stressful for the fosters and devastating for potential adopters.
