My story

My name is Romeo, and people say I’m quite the handsome boy.  I’m a young dogo with all the bravado but 100% sweetness.  I’ve heard that I remind people of a teenage boy: all fun and games and playful energy with a little cocky side (whatever that is).  I have lived in a house with other dogs and would do great with other playful pups because I LOVE playing and running.  Although my energy can be too much for some dogs, when other dogs correct me I respond really well.  I love squeaky toys and walk best with a harness.  I'm crate trained and housebroken.  I know how to sit, shake, and I used to know come... but since at rescue I started to forget.  When I get affection, I can’t help myself but get the zoomies.  I will be a great dog for any active adult, and I would love to be someone’s hiking or running buddy.  I am not reactive at all, but would be best with someone who has experience with beefy breeds and with no small children.  Please give this beautiful young boy a chance.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

The first step to adoption is filling out the adoption application. I also check references and do home visits prior to any adoption.Once approved I will try to match the perfect dog for your family. I also have an adoption contract that must be signed to finalize any adoption.

More about this rescue

I moved to Colorado in 2006 to rescue "Pit Bull" type dogs. Peanut's Place is a tribute to my first Pit Bull. Because of her I fell in love with these breeds.Peanut passed on in April 2007 from complications of Cushing's Disease at the young age of 5-1/2. I saw a need to save such misunderstood dogs. I try to educate people about Pit Bull type dogs.They're not the killing machines the media portrays them as. They are loving,devoted companions.Sure they're high energy,but what do you expect from a breed that has "Terrier" as their last name? There is no such thing as a "bad dog". There are only BAD OWNERS .
We're always in need of monetary donations to pay the Vet bills. Dry dog food donations are always welcome.
Volunteers to walk the dogs and interact with them is high on our "Wish List". Please feel free to email me if you would like to help.
