So - many of us out there share a devotion to Pit bulls and other bully breeds. We will protect and defend them with our lives, just like they would do for us. Unfortunately, many dont realize just how lovely pitty's are. They don't give them a chance to show their true colors. Devoted, loyal, loving - they are some of the most fantastic creatures I have ever had the pleasure of sharing my life with. And yet, every day, hundreds die in shelters. Cold - alone. Some perfect - some broken inside. No matter what they've experienced, no matter how hard they've tried, they aren't given a chance. Labeled as a 'pit bull' - they are thrown out, deemed vicious - baby eaters. Quick - hide your family! One of my greatest hopes for this coming generation is that they see, and understand, how stereotyping people and animals can have such a significant effect on them. Pit Bull's have a heart of gold, and a mind like no other. And so, with pleasure, I introduce Damien! Gray hair spots his muzzle, brown eyes lead the way to the kindest heart. A senior pup at about 7 years old, who deserves to live out the rest of his life in comfort, and with love - more then he could ever possibly imagine. And, on January 24th, our rescue (Tails Of Courage) stepped up to provide him just that - a chance to receive what every dogs wishes to posses - a home. However, most fairy 'tails' have a twist. Damien, a plain brown pit with a heart of gold, has a cancerous tumor growing on the side of his muzzle. If it is not removed, he won't have much longer to live. All his waiting, wishing, wanting, for a home that only wants to love him will go to waste. A brilliant mind, a fantastic heart, all will go to the ground. Damien's surgery went so well, and while he is missing a great deal of his lip, he is still a great dog, just a little funny looking! His cancer is severe and he will likely not survive much longer with us. We are looking for a hospice foster or adoptive home that understands that he will remain on medication for the rest of his life.
If you are interested in a dog, please go to www.tailsofcourage.org to fill out an application, and email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We are NOT a shelter, we are a group of foster homes in various states, please be respectful of the hours you call.
Rescue Group Info...
We are a rescue, focusing a great deal of our work on training therapy dogs for veterans. All donations go to feeding, housing, veterinary and training costs so that our military members are able to have a therapy dog with no cost to themselves. Our dogs also assist abused and neglected children in testifying in Court, therapy situations and adoptions.
If interested in a dog, please send an email to our rescue. We will then send an application and contract to the adopter. If approved, a time will be scheduled for a home visit and to meet the dog.
