You would never know that this gentleman spent the first few years of his life living outside.  He survived the rain, snow, hot, and cold...no matter the temperature he waited patiently for something to change.  Shadow was discovered through Ring Dog Rescue's outreach program two years ago and was recently surrendered to us.  He has adapted amazingly well to living in the house.  He is housebroken, crate trained, loves his foster family (human and canine), but his two favorite things are the couch and taking walks.  He would do best in a calm quiet home. Shadow is one of the sweetest most soulful dogs we've ever had the pleasure of meeting, and he is grateful for the chance to live the rest of his years making up for his first few years of life he missed out on!

About Ring Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Ring Dog Rescue is a 501c3 pit bull rescue organization based out of Richmond, Virginia. Our focus is on the rescue, rehabilitation and long term placement of pit bull-type dogs in our region, as well as on the continued and ongoing education of the general public on the true character of these dogs and their role in altering the current societal perception. In 2009, Ring Dog Rescue placed 87 dogs in loving, permanent homes across Virginia, North Carolina, Maryland, Washington D.C., New Jersey, Pennsylvania and South Carolina, representing a 26% increase in dogs adopted from 2008. Our dogs come from various sources, including local kill-shelters, as strays or even as removals from neglectful situations. Our dogs are provided full and complete medical care, including spay and neuter, vaccines, microchips and remediation of any ailments the dog may suffer, placed in foster homes, taught to be a family dog and then placed in an adoptive home, after a thorough screening process.

Our Adoption Process...

Steps to adopt

1. Fill out an Adoption Application
2. Phone interview
3. Reference Checks
4. Meet and greet with the dog you are interested in (and any dogs you may have)
5. Home inspection
6. 1 week trial run (in home)
7. Finalize adoption (contract, collection of adoption fee and transfer of medical records)

Our adoption is fee $150.00, due at the end of your week trial, and includes spay or neuter, rabies (if of age), vaccinations, worming, microchip and any other medical required for the health of the particular animal.

The entire process can take 1-3 weeks to process, so please be patient and understand if you live outside of the Greater Richmond Area, the process may take longer. Our goal is to place the right bully in the right home.
