My story

I know it’s hard to believe, but this group of “Country Cuties” almost didn’t have the chance to make an appearance on our page. These 7 puppies and their mama were scheduled to be put to sleep at a local shelter because they were running out of space. We found out about them on a Friday, and had a foster home with a first-time foster ready to pull them before their deadline on Monday. These cuties almost didn’t survive due to irresponsible pet ownership.

Now that you know how close of a call it was, we are so excited to introduce you to the Country Litter! This group of 10 week old lab/pittie/Aussie mixes are loving and playful little pups, they have no idea how close of a call it was and we plan on keeping it that way! They are thriving in their foster home, and ready to meet their forever families!

Merle is the second smallest but don’t let his size fool you. He loves to play and can hold his own despite being a little pup!


If you would like to add one of these cuties to your family please apply!

Why adoption is a great option

Merle, a Birmingham American Pit Bull Terrier/Australian Cattle Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Pit Bull Terrier/Australian Cattle Dog for sale in Birmingham, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier/Australian Cattle Dog dog from a breeder in Birmingham.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Birmingham 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 Birmingham 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/Australian Cattle Dog breeders who help with American Pit Bull Terrier/Australian Cattle Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Birmingham paves the way for another one to be saved.
