Dude - Take My Lead Dog's Story...
Dude is a survivor of dog fighting and is looking for his forever home. If you were to ask Dude about the best days of his life, his response would be the days he has spent at the shelter! You see he spent many years living in horrific conditions until he was finally rescued in October. When he first came to the shelter he was scared and didn't know what to expect.....but as time passed he realized that he was being taken care of and loved for the first time in his life. He was scared to go out to the play yards but with patience and time he has grown to love his time in the yard. Now you hardly ever see this guy without a smile on his face. He loves being loved and taken care of. He loves the shelter staff and volunteers who vow to keep fighting for him and find him the home or family he truly deserves. Don't let the shelter days be the best days of his life....he deserves so much more! Dude is approximately 8 years old, Heartworm positive, has visible scars, and hidden scars as well. Possible arthritis in his joints as well. Learning to trust strangers so that we can find him the perfect home. Dude must be the only animal in the home at this time and have a human who is willing to put in the time, patience, love, and understanding into this little guy. We are not in a rush to find Dude his perfect home, we know they are out there, we just hope that they will come down and meet him. Dude is currently residing at Hernando Animal Shelter in Hernando, FL, however, Handsome Dan's Rescue will help with the cost of transport to an approved adopter. We will also provide FREE in-home private training with a certified dog trainer or behavior consultant to help him transition into his forever home! Please contact Dude's favorite volunteer, Charlotte, at with questions. To apply to adopt Dude:

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dude - Take My Lead Dog, a Cranston Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Cranston, or seeking a Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Cranston.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Cranston already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Cranston breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Cranston paves the way for another one to be saved.
