My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Hello, I’m Perry! A charming black and white pit mix who’s just as dashing as he is devoted. At 4 years old and a solid 60 pounds, I’m the epitome of a gentle giant. I am a laid-back kid who loves people, loves to be loved and does great in public.

I’m a neutered male, fully vaccinated, and currently on a journey to overcome heartworms with a slow-kill treatment. I’m a pro at house manners, crate trained, and enjoy strolling by your side on a leash.

I shine in a family setting, getting along wonderfully with children and I don’t bother with cats. I am dog selective and would do best as the only dog in the home or a more submissive dog that I can really click with.

I’m all about giving and receiving love. They say I’m the biggest Romeo around, and I must admit, I do give the world’s best hugs. Pleasing you is my greatest joy, and there’s nothing I love more than a leisurely walk where we can explore the world together.

I’m being fostered in Hampton, VA but can be transported for the right home. You must be 21 or older to apply. If you’re looking for a loyal friend who’s eager to fill your life with affection and joy, I’m your guy. Let’s create a lifetime of memories, one hug at a time.

Our adoptable dogs are all in various foster homes and can be met by contacting rescue. Rescue will then provide foster home's contact information. Meet and greets will be arranged between foster and potential adopters. We also have adoption events at Petsmart on various dates which can be checked on our Facebook page, Operation Save a Shelter Dog.

More about this rescue

Our Mission​

Operation Save A Shelter Dog is a foster based, IRS-recognized 501c(3) rescue whose mission is to work with shelters on the East Coast by saving dogs at high risk of euthanasia or that have little hope of adoption in their current condition. Not only is it our goal to find furever homes for our dogs, but also to educate the public on the importance of spaying, neutering, vaccinating and providing preventative care for their pets.
