Facts about Rowan

  • Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
  • Color: Red/Golden/Orange/Chestnut
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Rowan first came to rescue about 8 years ago. We found a foster home that eventually adopted her and never really heard from them again. Then, in September of 2016, we got a call from Kane County Animal Control that Rowan had been picked up as a stray. Her nails were painted pink, a sign that someone loved her, and we were hopeful about finding her owners. Unfortunately, all efforts to locate them failed. The phone numbers and email addresses we had listed for them were no longer in service, and they no longer lived at the address we had on file. The saddest part of all is that they didn't even look for her. So now we have the task of finding this 10 year old girl a home that will love her for the rest of her days. Rowan still has a lot of life in her.....she is spunky, active, and has lots of energy for a senior dog. Can you provide a home for a dog in need of a place to live out the rest of her days?

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process is as follows: First, the applicant must fill out an application. After the application is reviewed by the rescue and the references have been called, dog introduction will be scheduled. If all goes well, a home visit will be scheduled and the dog will be placed. The first few weeks of having the dog is a trial period to make sure the dog is a good fit for you and your family. During the trial period, the rescue provides the necessities for you: crate, food, leash, and collar. If after the trial period you decide you'd like to adopt, adoption papers will be completed and the adoption fee is due at this time. If you decide this dog is not a good fit, the dog comes back to rescue and we can possibly look for a dog that would be a better match. The fee for puppies (6 months and younger) is $350 and the fee for adult dogs is $250. This fee includes the cost of the spay or neuter, complete vaccinations, microchip, and heartworm test (in dogs over 7 months). Adopters must agree to return to Bombshell Bullies for training.
