My story

Friends to the Forlorn


Breed: Boxer/Pit Bull Terrier
Gender: Female
Estimated Date of Birth: April 17, 2010
Size:  65lbs
Location:  Dallas, GA


Tonya was taken into animal control as a stray on 3/31/2013. After spending 16 days in AC, her time was up and she was on that day's euthanasia list at Fulton County. We pulled Tonya with only 2 hours to spare on April 16, 2013 and she has been living with us ever since.

At the shelter, Tonya had an injury to her rear right paw and a horrible case of kennel cough/upper respiratory infection.  Animal Control gave her medicine to kill the maggots that had filled her nasty wound on her right rear paw. She has been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, dewormed, and she tested negative for heartworms. Tonyas foot has also completely healed and she is a happy, healthy girl.


Tonya obviously knew what it is like to live in a house as she immediately jumped up on the couch and made herself at home. She is one sweet girl. She jumped right up into the car, enjoyed her bath, hoarded some bones, ate her dinner, and went into her crate on her own to go to sleep.

Not only does Tonya have the best pittie smile in town, she has the silliest, most amazing ears. This girl is packed full of personality and she loves toys. She is crate trained, housebroken, loves people, loves to play, and is good with kids. Tonya would love an active family. She would be a great hiking companion and would love a family to teach her new tricks as she is very smart. She is very confident and is all about making her people happy. Tonya would do best as an only dog and she it not suited for a home with cats. Tonya is a strong, active lady and she will require a secure, 6' privacy fenced yard where she can play with her family and maybe chase a squirrel or two or a person who is strong and willing to work on her leash manners. She is such an incredible lady and is sure to put a smile on your face!

More about this rescue

Friends to the Forlorn Pitbull Rescue is a 501 c 3 no-kill, charitable organization dedicated to the care of homeless, unwanted, abused, and neglected pitbulls, particularly those who are considered hard to place or with special needs. All dogs under our care are provided with food, shelter, veterinary care, as well as basic house-training and obedience until placement is found. We will try to match the dog and appropriate, loving, and permanent home based on the dog's temperament & personality evaluation as well as the prospective home's vet & home check. Veterinary care provided will ensure that the dog is in general good health, up-to-date on vaccinations, and spayed or neutered prior to adoption.

Additionally,"Friends to the Forlorn" Pitbull Rescue Inc. takes pride in educating the public in the importance of proper and responsible pitbull ownership, spaying & neutering, as well as the humane care and treatment of all animals.
