Facts about Kovu

  • Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
  • Color: Brown/Chocolate - With White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Kovu us a shy boy who was picked up by a friend who happened to find him tied up in his front yard. He was COVERED in ticks and starving.

Kovu is a hyper dog, when kenneled, but when in an open space, like the yard, he seems to withdraw and sticks close to me or anything like a fence or another dog kennel. We do not know about his past that made him that way, but he will need time to adjust to a home setting.

Kovu is a special needs dog. He has seizures that are stress or excitement induced. He is on medication for his seizures and will have to remain on them for the duration of his life.

About Before the Bridge

About Our Rescue Group...

Before the Bridge is comprised of 3 die hard rescuers. We are a new group, formed in September of 2008, but our rescue experience spans many years. Dogs and cats are now housed at a new location in Caddo Mills. Dogs are routinely transported to local adoption events for the public to see. Folks may also take a look at our Adoption Book to look for their new friend and companion. We also have pets listed on a fellow rescuers site. We accept any breed but have specialized in Pit Bull rescue. Because we are small, our space is limited as well as our finances. Donations of money, food, or supplies are always very welcome. We do not euthanize to make room for another animal so when we are full, we must say no to taking in a new rescue.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our pets are shown at Adoption events only. We cannot arrange for you to visit our homes or show dogs on any days other than Saturday or Sunday.

Regular adoption events are held each Saturday at various Petsmarts in the area in conjunction with the Straydog Inc group out of Gun Barrel City. We are there from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Please come by and see us!

Special events are announced as they become available.

Thank you for your understanding.

Our Adoption Process...

When a potential adopter identifies a dog or cat in which they are interested, they contact Before the Bridge to request an application. Once the application is received and approved, a home visit is set up during which we bring the chosen pet to the adopter's home to meet and greet with all the occupants both human and animal. If the home visit goes smoothly, the adopter will sign a contract and pay a $200 donation fee ($100 for cats). We then leave the pet in their new Forever Home and do a followup phone call in a week or so to see how things are going.

*Please note: Although the City of Garland Shelter is making great strides in the right direction in their treatment of Pit Bulls, they still have a long way to go. Therefore, Before the Bridge does not adopt Pit Bulls to residents in Garland. We regret this inconvenience and will continue to monitor changes in that City.
