My story

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

Meet Rosalita! This lovely lady is looking for her forever family, and wants her new people to know these 10 things about her:

1. I am a Cane Corso and I am about 7 years old.

2. I am a super social girl that really likes almost everyone I meet.

3. I am currently being fostered in a home that has a male Boerboel and a male American Bulldog, and we all get along splendidly for the most part. I can be a little grumpy with them when it comes to food or toys, but I am easily corrected.

4. I think I would do well in a home with children over 7, as long as they weren’t too loud or rambunctious and had some previous experience/training with big dogs.

5. I’ve met lots of big dogs at the Bullpen, and I don’t mind them one bit. I think I would like it if my new home had a male dog over 50lbs for me to pal around with, as long as we were always fed separately!

6. I haven’t had much experience with small dogs since I came to the Bullpen, but I feel like I could warm up to one. There are a couple cats at my foster home, and I generally leave them alone.

7. The words that best describe me are happy, affectionate, and playful.

8. My favorite things to do are hanging with humans, sunbathe in the yard, and getting treats.

9. I am housebroken and crate-trained, and I am good on a leash. I also know basic obedience and how to use a dog door!

10. I am fully vaccinated, spayed, heartworm negative and microchipped.

Ready to give Rosalita the forever home of her dreams? Fill out our Adoption Application, located at The Bullpen Way Station & Sanctuary under the 'work with us' tab.

We highly recommend that our potential adopters fill out an online application as soon as possible, as it greatly expedites the process of finding the right dog for your situation.

Our dogs are available for adoption nationwide but preference is given to adopters willing to do an in-person meeting. Please understand that our dogs are not adopted on a first-come, first-serve basis, but rather we strive for a "perfect placement" so we know that they will not be failed again.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

All adopters must fill out an adoption application, which is conveniently located on our website,, under the "work with us" tab in the top right of the page.

After you submit your application, the form goes to our online database where it is accessed and reviewed by the members of our team. A rescue volunteer should be in contact within a couple of days to discuss your application, your expectations, and any of the dogs you’re interested in. If you don’t hear anything from us within a reasonable amount of time, don’t be afraid to reach out to us via email at!

Once we’ve spoken to you, we’ll begin to check your references. When we’ve gotten the green light from your references, a volunteer will be in touch with you to set up a home visit. We are merely looking to see that you are able to provide a safe, clean, and comfortable environment for your dog to live in. At that time, we will also take the opportunity to inspect your fence, yard, and neighborhood.

As soon as your home visit has been completed and approved, you’re officially ready to adopt! At this point, a member of the Bullpen crew will be in touch to discuss the adoption contract/fee. Fees range from $50 for very old dogs to $500 for puppies. On average, the adoption fee is between $300-$400

Depending on the distance between you and your new family member, transport may have to be arranged (for applicants who live in close proximity to our facility in Georgia or one of our foster homes, this will not apply). We WILL NOT SEND A DOG VIA COMMERCIAL AIR, but we do offer two alternative options for long-haul transports:
(1) Commercial: We regularly use a wonderful, reasonably-priced ($150-$200) transport company that travels between Texas and Georgia and then up the East Coast on a weekly basis. The cost of the transport PLUS the cost of the mandatory health certificate must be covered by the applicant unless otherwise specified by the Bullpen.

(2) Private: We also have an individual who is available to do private transport, but applicants must be willing to cover the individual’s travel expenses and meet the driver at least half of the way.

Post-adoption, we reserve the right to make up to three follow-up visits, but we’ll make sure to give you notice beforehand, and the visits are generally informal. Additionally, we always encourage our new adopters to stay in touch with updates or pictures (email, text, or join the Bullpen’s Facebook page- and to feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.

More about this rescue

Located in the green rolling hills of Northeast Georgia, The Bullpen provides assistance and sanctuary for giant breed dogs and other vulnerable companion animals. We believe that by integrating grassroots community education and outreach, coalition building, support for existing animal welfare efforts, and our own independent rescue operations, we can eliminate needless euthanasia and improve the overall health and well-being of our four-legged friends.
