Facts about Harriet

  • Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier Mix
  • Color: Black
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Miss Harriet is an adorable, squatty, snorty Pit Bull. She was found wandering in a bad part of town. She had a huge cut on her throat and we don't even want to imagine what had happened to her. Regardless of the pain she must have been in, she was the sweetest, happiest pup when her rescuers approached her. She knew it was her turn to get off the cruel streets and happily jumped in the car ready to ride.

Harriet just adores all people but requested to be the only dog, because she’s the queen, you see! Harriet will go above and beyond to please her person. She walks well on the leash, is house and crate trained and listens very well. She already knows how to sit and will come when off leash.
Occasionally she likes to play tug of war and she seems to like plush/squeaky toys but she really is more of a mellow lady that prefers lounging on the couch instead…preferably with her person. She also likes to go on car rides and behaves like a perfect little lady.

Harriet makes friends with people easily including respectful children. She greets everybody with a big smile and a tail wag. She is that kind of dog that will melt in your hands when showing affection, she loves belly rubs and will fall at sleep if you scratch the right spot.
Miss Harriet is asking when it will be her turn to have her very own forever family. She would love nothing more than to be close to you, watch you, protect you and be your loyal best friend until the end.

About Corridor Rescue Inc. - Pittsburgh Transports

About Our Rescue Group...

Corridor Rescue Inc. is an all breed 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable animal rescue organization on a mission. A mission of mercy, rescue and awareness. A mission to save lives and correct an injustice to animals who have been thrown away and left, often times injured and starving, to fend for themselves in the Hwy 59 and Little York area of Houston - apparently the dividing line for the county and city Animal Control. Its about a mile strip of road dubbed the "Corridor of Cruelty". Veer off to the left or right along any point and see the same everywhere - abandoned and starving dogs, in pain and suffering. Here, trash and animals are discarded without thought on a regular basis. We're not talking about a handful of animals, but hundreds of physically and emotionally damaged animals in the fight of their lives to simply survive another day.

Started by one person, Corridor Rescue has grown its team of volunteers, from all walks of life, united in an effort to help this community of orphaned animals in desperate need of help. We work to rescue hard to capture dogs and cats; to rescue and rehabilitate diseased and injured dogs; to facilitate the rescue of animals mainly from the Corridor of Cruelty but also from other areas of Houston; to educate about spay/neuter and animal cruelty laws.

Success happens everyday yet we know that our fight is far from over

Our Adoption Process...

We require all potential adopters to complete our pre-adoption application. Please contact with inquiries, or visit our website to fill out our online adoption application -

After review of your application, a rescue volunteer will contact you. We will check veterinary references on all current pets or any that you have had in the past 3 years. We conduct a home visit by appointment to meet family members, other pets, and to evaluate home safety conditions. If we feel the potential adoption is a good match for the family and the pet, then we proceed with placing the animal on a "trial adoption". We want to be sure that your new pet is right for you!
