Story
Unfortunately we need to give away our dog his name is Bullet. He was given to us and we are not able to keep him due to financial issues and because he needs to be in a home that has a fence where he can be free to run and play. He is about to turn 1 years old from what we where told. He is such a energetic boy pit bull. He loves any and all attention and is fully potty trained. He is very smart and knows a lot of commands such as sit, lay down, paw and the word wait when you give him his food. He loves to cuddle and play with fetch balls and pull on ropes. He doesn't like to be alone for certain amounts of time and needs someone to properly give him the attention and training that he needs. He doesn't have his shots due to financial issues and we just can afford it at this time to give him what he needs. This truly breaks my heart because he deserves better.

Story
Mateo is the perfect pitty boy. He's people and dog friendly, knows his commands, is housebroken, crate trained, and good on a leash. He has never shown any aggressive behaviors, and he's very good with sharing toys, food, and hanging out with both people and other dogs. Some of Mateo's favorite extracurriculars include playing, running, and working on training. He loves his toys, and his favorite game is picking up anything and bringing it to you. He also loves to chew on his toys pretty rough so toys like a Kong are the best for him! Mateo is a big foodie, and he especially enjoys waiting on extra treats from his little human friends. He loves other dogs and gets along with all sizes, and when he meets a furry friend, all he wants to do is play. He is safe to be around children of all ages from baby to teenager, but he is a strong boy and sometimes he does not know his strength. Mateo is not too much of a jumper when meeting people, but when kids are running around, he does get very excited and wants to participate in the fun. He gets the zummies at times especially when kids are playing with him. Mateo saw his first snowfall, and he was a little bit afraid. This Southern boy (he came from Georgia) definitely did not enjoy the cold on his toes. He's not a barker and is a very quiet boy. He would best fit in an active family household where he can get lots of walks and go on fun adventures. We can't wait to find this beautiful honey brown eyed boy his perfect fit!

Story
Rochelle is a true beauty. We rescued her from a shelter in Georgia where she was about to be put down. She is a very sweet girl who has a lot of love to give. She is a little shy at first and slow to warm up, but she is looking forward to her human that will take care of her and show her that she is safe and loved. She has moderate energy levels and loves a nice toy. She is good with other dogs but needs proper introduction.

Story
ADOPTION FEE WAIVED FOR THE MONTH OF MARCH Maxwell, otherwise known as Maxy, is a total sweetheart. He had a rough start at life ending up at a shelter and about to be put down, but we rescued him and are determined to find him the most loving and safe home. Many might show some timidness in the very beginning as we believe he had an abusive past with men, but once he warms up, he is all fun, play, and love. He is very athletic and energetic and would thrive in an active household where he can play, go on lots of walks, runs, etc. He loves to play with humans, dogs, and toys. He is absolutely beautiful, and we believe he might have some Great Dane in him. Maxy has a sadness and sense of fear in his eyes, and he truly needs a family that will be patient with him, continue his training skills, show him that he is safe now, and shower him with love. He is a fantastic dog that deserves the best.

Story
How does one describe Pumpkin? She wants to be loved so badly, but she takes her time before warming up. She wants to cuddle, but does it on her terms. It could be a 30-second cuddle session or a nap curled up on your legs for two hours. She allows herself to get just so close before pulling back. Something sad must have happened to her prior to us rescuing her, because she needs to know she is safe and secure. She's still warming up to her foster who has had her since December 23, but every day she trusts more and "warming up" takes less. Pumpkin loves to play! Antlers, bones, and tennis balls have been her favorites so far. She can sit, give paw, lay down, and give kisses. If her foster asks for kisses, Pumpkin puts her nose to her lips. There is a lot of personality in her! She loves car rides, too! If she hears the keys, she runs to the garage door ready to go! Pumpkin is fully potty trained and a classy gal. She goes to her foster's back door when she wants to go potty and goes to the front door when she wants to go for a walk. She is still working on leash training - cold weather has slowed it down! Pumpkin has not been tested around babies or toddlers, but she does wonderfully with younger kids. She lives with a 10-year old and 13-year old, and they absolutely adore her. We have not tested Pumpkin with other dogs yet either. Pumpkin has a lot of life and love to offer and will make a family very happy and entertained. She is an incredibly smart and sweet girl, but needs someone that will be loving to her and show her that she is forever safe.
