Winston is a very special guy who has been with our rescue since December 2011. He came to us with MAJOR health issues and we were not sure if he would make it or not. Winston has proven to us and to many of his supporters that he is a fighter and a bit head-strong at times too! He has rebounded from being a very sick guy with a lot of issues to being an overall pretty healthy guy, who needs a special and extra loving home that will help him with his ongoing medical needs. The dermatologist believes Winston has chronic allergies, but his skin is not healthy enough yet for us to be able to do the necessary allergy testing. We are hoping that eventually we will be able to do the test as his condition improves. He also has a mild form of an autoimmune disease called pemphigus. He has responded amazingly well to the medications he is on and will need to remain on some form of medication for the remainder of his life most likely. Winston also needs to be bathed weekly in a medicated shampoo.
In return for all of this extra TLC and love that he requires Winston will provide tremendous love in return and the occasional comic relief...and sometimes a very sassy attitude! He is very smart and very food motivated and will certainly work for treats. He is a great boy who deserves a chance at an equally great family.
If you are a special family who has room in your heart for a special not-so-furry guy please contact us for more information or to come to meet Winston. Email Laurie Yost at LaurieY@pittieslovepeace.com for more information on adopting or fostering Winston!

Rescue Group Info...
Pitties.Love.Peace, Inc, is a non-profit organization based out of Central PA, devoted to the rescue and rehabilitation of pit bull and bully mix dogs and puppies. We are an all volunteer group that relies solely on the generosity of donations to care for all of our dogs. Many dogs come to us with serious medical needs; others simply needing love for the first time in their lives. Whatever is needed, we provide.
Pit bulls are one of the most mistreated, misunderstood and misrepresented breeds of all time. It is our mission to save those neglected and suffering at the hands of humans and adopt them into loving forever homes.
We also serve as advocates for the breed we love so much. We work tirelessly to educate the public on the truth about pit bulls and pit bull type dogs. Our hope is to one day restore their reputation to what it once was.
