My story

Our pets are physically located in North Carolina until they are adopted. Once adopted we can transport to you. We have a cost effective transporter who will be happy to transport for you.

LeeLou came from a high intake kill shelter in Georgia. She is around 2 years old. She is a pit mix. She currently is around 50 pounds. She is an absolutely awesome people dog. She loves people of all ages. She is good with other dogs as long as there are no food involved. She can get bossy at feeding time with other dogs. This is a result of having to compete for food in her former home. She has NO guarding or aggression issues with people. I can put my hand in her bowl, take food away with no issues. She will need a home with no cats. She is an active dog who needs a home with a fenced yard or an active owner who will provide stimulation and exercise every day. She would be a great hiking and camping partner. She loves doing the local trails with me. You will not find an more devoted friend.

This sweetie will go to the new home current on vaccines, deworming, flea prevention, heartworm prevention and microchipped, spayed! This girl will receive a certificate of health issued by our vet prior to transport. The adopter will get all the health records with adoption.

We require a prescreen application to adopt. You can get that on our main website at

Why adoption is a great option

Leelou ($50 adopt fee), a Sussex American Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Sussex, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Sussex.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Sussex already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Sussex breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even American Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with American Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Sussex paves the way for another one to be saved.
