My story

Tiny Body, Big Love // Oh Haley Belle! You are such a sweet girl.

Between 1-2 years old, and 43-ish lbs (tiny!). She's full of joy, grace and affection. She adores people and wants nothing more than to connect with whoever she's with.

Athletic and sporty but polite. Demure yet optimistic. Obedient yet full of rascal energy when she wants to make you laugh. Can you feel her yet? Yes, she's truly awesome.

Haley is good with medium-large dogs, loves to play fetch, and will spring up into your arms for kisses if you allow it. House trained, neat & clean in her kennel, always ready to learn tricks. And yes, so beautiful!

Drop us a note and tell us what you're looking for in a dog and we'll respond with an application. Thank you!

Additional adoption info

So, you've been thinking about adopting
a Blocky headed dog - Pit Bull or otherwise!

As you may have gathered from reading through our website, society isn't always kind to pit bull owners. Breed bias is still a thing and pit bulls AND their owners can feel a lot of pressure to be 'perfect.' What a project! Because we know how challenging it can be to live under other peoples' microscopes we ask that you fulfill these requirements in order to adopt one of our dogs:

1. Be at least 21 years old
We occasionally make exceptions for younger, rock solid applicants.
2. Be Local to the SF Bay Area.
Or, be willing to drive here to meet in person. We don't ship dogs.
3. Fill Out an Application and impress us with your dog savvy!
4. Must Own or Have Landlord Approval. Yes, we'll check.
5. Chat with one of our Reps.
6. Show that you have a clear understanding of the Breed Challenges
7. Agree to take a video of your home and yard as part of a 'home visit.'
8. Everyone in your Household needs to be ready for the adoption too. Yeah, we'll check.
9. Pay a $250 Adoption Donation Fee
10. Sign a Legally Binding Adoption Contract

Note: We rarely place same-sex large breed dogs including Pit Bulls in the same home. Apartments/Townhouses are fine, but if you have a backyard, we want to see a solid fence and a safe environment.

In return, you'll get a get you can brag about for life. All our dogs come with basic obedience training (which you get to continue free for the life of the dog!), support from a large group of pit bull owners and opportunities to help our cause through educational events and other fun activities.

Join us! We look forward to working with you!
