My story

Friends to the Forlorn


Breed: Pit Bull Terrier
Gender: Male
Estimated Date of Birth: September 28, 2007
Size:  65 lbs
Location:  Dacula, GA


Herman was a stray that had been roaming in Paulding County for a while. He has some mobility issues and a large abscess. The pound is no place for a senior to rest their head. Lucky for Herman, one of our loving foster families stepped up for him and he got his freedom ride on September 23rd, 2020.


Herman was inquisitive about his new surroundings, but settled in quickly.  He is a really good laid back dog, total coach potato.  Our best guess is he is around 11-12 years old.   As an experienced gentleman, he has some mobility issues on his hind legs, but he is on joint supplements to help give him some strength.  Herman is a calm guy who enjoys sunbathing and sleeping in a comfy spot. You can walk into his room and he won't even move. He is a quiet soul who takes life slowly and has no complaints. He enjoys being petted and will freely give kisses to whomever lets him. Herman does great with all of the dogs in his foster home including a chihuahua.  He has not been cat tested but we think he would do fine.  He minds his own business and just wants continued love and treats, lots of treats!  We know he is a senior dog but he deserves to have his own forever family and we know there is one out there for him.  He would need a home with no stairs as these are difficult for him.

Our adoption fee is $300. All dogs are current on vaccinations, spayed or neutered, micro-chipped, on heartworm prevention, and are fed top of the line grain-free food.  If you are interested in learning more about Herman or want to adopt him please complete an adoption application at:

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.
