My personality

My story

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

The many faces of Dolly. Happy, pitiful, playful, and over shenanigans. I am a 70lb package of personality. I came to MVPC VERY pregnant and raised some beautiful puppies. I am still working on regaining my girlish figure but will probably always have a bit of a saggy belly because I was obviously bred a lot. I am TOTALLY about my peoples and want to be with (preferably on) you as much as possible! I am fine with other dogs, and even cats! I certainly love my chew toys. They do need to be sturdy and balls of any size are absolutely the bees knees!

I want a few minutes, and a couple cookies before you are approved to be my newest BFF, but I have excellent manners and once we are friends, we are FRIENDS. I am active, snuggly, sweet and fun and ready to be a member of an awesome family…rather than constantly raising one.

ADOPTION FEE: $250 (All MVPC dogs are heartworm-tested, completely vetted, spayed/neutered, microchipped, crate-trained and house-trained)

ADOPTER: Dog experience
BIRTHDAY: 12/11/2018
FENCE: Required (an electric fence is not an acceptable form of containment)
DOGS IN HOME: Yes, male, but can be solo
CHILDREN: Yes, 8 and over

I AM READY TO GO HOME!! If you are approved to be my new family, a hold fee of $100 is required and will be applied to the full adoption fee of $250 when MVPC comes to visit your house with me!

INQUIRIES: ALL inquiries begin with a submitted adoption application, which is found on our website, We do not adopt to individuals under the age of 25.

DO NOT: USE THE PETFINDER INQUIRY/CONTACT/ADOPT BUTTONS--we are unable to monitor those and you will not receive a response.

PLEASE NOTE: We are volunteer based and a home visit is required; we have a two-hour adoption radius from Kettering, OH for our adult dogs and 75 miles for our puppies. Exceptions for our ADULT dogs only, though rare, may be made on a case-by-case basis but we must be able to do a home visit. Thank you for your understanding!

Additional adoption info

Our adoption fees are $250 for adult dogs, and $350 for puppies 5mo and under. Adoption fees may be more or less depending on breed, special needs, etc. This covers all vetting and allows us to take on hard cases.

It all starts with an application.

Our dogs are listed until an adopter is approved and a hold fee is received. Please submit an application for approval FIRST. You will receive a "received" auto response with further information. We do not adopt out littermates together. We are a 100% foster-based, volunteer rescue so we are not able to respond to every inquiry about a dog (though we try) and we will respond to a request for an application or if one is submitted through our website. Please allow 72 hours for us to respond, and please check your spam/junk mail folder first, then send us an email if you believe we have not responded! Since we are foster-based, we have no centralized facility to visit. All of our dogs live in private homes as members of their respective foster families.

We require a physical fence for most dogs.

Once approved, we bring the dog to your home for a home visit. If all goes well at the home visit, the adoption is completed at that time.

More about this rescue


To cultivate an understanding of the American Pit Bull Terrier through positive education and example and change the misinformed minds of society one dog at a time!

Nonprofit Overview

The Miami Valley Pit Crew (MVPC) rescue is a 501(c)3 nonprofit with a network of volunteer foster homes dedicated to rescue and rehabilitation of abused, neglected, and misunderstood dogs and puppies. While we are an all breed rescue, we specialize in "bully breeds" and other strong working breeds: Bulldogs, Pit Bulls, Mastiffs, German Shepherds and any mixes of the aforementioned. We pull dogs from the country's overcrowded shelters. We also educate owners and the public on bully breeds and Breed Specific Legislation (BSL). We specialize in dogs, but respect all living creatures and encourage others to do the same by education.

The MVPC evaluates each potential rescue request to determine the dogs re-homing probability. Our goal is to adopt out family dogs and ambassadors of their breed.
