Ruff Ruff! My name is Pearl
|Breed:||American Staffordshire Terrier/Staffordshire Bull Terrier Mix||Color:||Brindle||Age:||Adult|
|Size:||Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)||Sex:||Female|
I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
Pearl is around 6 years old and is a "pocket pittie" weighing only about 50 lbs. She wandered up to a business in the 5th Ward in February and one of the people there thought enough of her to get her help. She was bred near to death and she had a rough recovery from her spay (seeping through sutures, had to be given vitamin k and belly wrap). She also had some eye and skin infection initially, but is doing just fine now.
Pearl is currently living with a 13 lb terrier mix who is the alpha (go figure). She's dark brindle with cropped ears. She has completed treatment for heartworms and is ready for placement. Pearl is healthy and strong! She comes with harness and leash, food and very large nyla-bone too! Pearl's foster mom says she is the sweetest girl, very tender and loving and just overall happy girl.
If you, or someone you know, are interested in adopting Pearl, please fill out the adoption application on our website (http://forgottendogs.org/adoption_application.html) and make you you specify PEARL. Thanks!

Rescue Group Info...
We rescue in a low income area of Houston called the 5th Ward. We founded Forgotten Dogs of the 5th Ward Project November of 2011 to address what we saw as an obvious need to help the many stray dogs we were seeing in there. We set up feeding stations and network and pull as many as we can when a foster home or no-kill rescue group says they can take them in. One of our goals is education and we provide residents with vouchers that cover the complete cost of having their animals altered and vaccinated against rabies. In addition, we provide other vaccinations and worming in the field free of charge. Since November 2011 we have grown in size and have rescued over 300 dogs and a few cats from the area. We are launching a program called Habitat for Hounds through which we will donate doghouses and blankets to residents for their dogs that are kept outside. Our website is forgottendogs.org and we are a 501c3.
We do not have a regular adoption site at this time, but stay tuned to our facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/ForgottenDogs5) for our upcoming events!
Our adoption fee is $125. We have an online application and a contract and all dogs/puppies are either spayed/neutered prior to adoption if old enough or arrangements are made to have them spayed/neutered afterwards.
