DIXIE's Story...
"Dixie Doodle" and "Noodle" are the affectionate nicknames given her by her Godmother Wendy, who found her in a rain puddle outside a church on the east end of Houston, almost a year ago. Dixie became her personal "bodyguard" and protector, alerting Wendy and neighbor's by her
bark, and, even one time, prevented a house break in. Wendy was deployed for medical military service in early February and could not find anyone to take care of Dixie. The so called "shelters" told her they would put her down because she was part PIT, that nasty three letter
word that spells instant death for most dogs that bear any resemblance to the much feared, much misunderstood breed. So True Blue Friends took in Dixie, hoping that someone in our circle will see her inner and outward beauty and majesty. Last Sunday on a visit to a friend's ranch, we marveled at her grace and speed as she ran around the pasture while the waves of gold in her brindle coat shimmered in the sunlight. We wondered if she could be part greyhound. A truly beautiful dog that gets along with other dogs her size, 45 pounds, and larger, but she would not be good in households with smaller pets, cats or dogs, or young children. We hope there is a place in someone's heart and home for Dixie. To arrange a meeting, contact Janice at 713.592.2299 or .

Why Adoption is a Great Option

DIXIE, a Houston American Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Houston, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Houston.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Houston 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 Houston 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 American Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with American Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Houston paves the way for another one to be saved.
