Story
Hi, my name is Ruger. I am 4yrs old. I am a Pitbull mix. I was adopted from Animal Allies Rescue Foundation (AARF) when I was 14wks old. I am house broken and spend most my days inside laying around sleeping. I do enjoy the outside but you have to limit me in hot weather because of my white coat, I can get sunburnt and allergies. I love to cuddle and give kisses. I love to play but am overall very chill and lazy. I have two other dogs I live with, which I enjoy playing and cuddling with. Looking for a home with someone who has no young children under 3yrs old because I am timid of little kids and can make me very anxious. Wanting a home that I can stay inside and cuddle with my owner or lounge around when they are gone.

Story
Meet Turk, our spirited and loving American Pit Bull Terrier. Turk became a part of our family three years ago when we adopted him from the Nashville Humane Society. Now, at the age of three, he has grown into a strong and affectionate companion. Turk is the definition of a loyal and friendly pet. He enjoys daily walks, playing with his favorite chew toys, and meeting new people. His favorite moments are spent running around in the yard and getting plenty of head scratches. As we search for a new home for Turk, we are hoping to find a family who can offer him lots of love, attention, and exercise. An ideal home would have a fenced yard where he can run and play, and an active family who can include him in their daily routines. Adjectives that best describe Turk are loyal, affectionate, energetic, and playful. He has a big heart full of love to give and would make a wonderful addition to any loving home.

Story
Hi, everypawdy! My name is Grace. I'm a beautiful, loving soul who is looking for a family to call my own. Walks, runs, and hikes are a few of my favorite hobbies. Attention and being pet are necessities as well, of course! A good cuddle at the end of a long day will fill me with joy. My foster family says I'm smart as a whip...I already know how to sit, heel, halt, and more! A good treat and some cuddles are enough to motivate to learn like a pro. I love being near my favorite humans, and playing with my favorite toys. If you want a reason to smile every single day, then I am the pup for your family. If you are interested in adopting Grace, please fill out an adoption application at https://bfp.org/rescue/ and email us with questions: adopt@bfp.org. Location: TULSA, OK

Story
Belikin was found wandering by himself on a beach in Belize...just a tiny little puppy skin and bones..pitiful. The American couple who found him couldn't leave him behind so they found a way to bring him home to Tennessee with them. He has grown into a beautiful dog who is very affectionate and loves being with people. He is house-trained, e-collar trained and leash trained. He travels well in a car. Due to Belikin's rough start where he was basically nearly starved to death, he has always been very possessive of his food and understandedly so. He has been hand fed and will allow the nice gentleman who found him to take his food way with no issues. However, he does not like other animals around when he is eating. The family who saved him has 3 other older dogs, 3 cats and 2 small children living with him so unfortunately the current living situation isn't ideal for Belikin. Belikin is such a loving pet but would be best as the only dog in his home due to his possessiveness. The first step to meet and possibly foster or adopt Belikin is to fill out this application....link is below.... copy and paste into your browser: https://tinyurl.com/keelysadoptionday

Story
Allow me to introduce Daisy. She showed up at my 3rd floor apartment door on February 23rd during a rainstorm. She was cold, scared, and wet. I was able to earn her trust, get her warm and dry and finally in my home, where she immediately made herself at home on my couch. I took her around the next day to see if I could find where she belongs, posted on multiple socials and message boards, and took her get scanned for a microchip. All of that came up empty. She is now fully vaccinated and microchipped. Currently coming off of a bought of kennel cough and an absolute sweetheart. I have two cats that she keeps trying to get close enough to play with them, but they ain't having none of it. Quick Stats: - Roughly 50lbs & 1yr old - Thinks she's 15lbs and loves to cuddle - Gray with white paws and chest - Not spayed (if deal breaker, will make sure that is done before adoption) - Leash trained * - House trained * * mostly, any shortcomings here are on my, I'm not used to doggos.

Story
Located in Memphis, Tennessee but we do adopt out of state for the right fit. From Bonnie's foster mom: Bonnie is one of the sweetest dogs I have ever fostered. Everyone that has met her has fallen in love with her. She is a cuddle bug and a velcro dog. All she wants to do is be with her human. She enjoys dog chews, toys, and treats but her favorite thing in the world is attention from her human. She loves men, women, and kids. She is always happy, gentle, and appropriately behaved with whomever she meets. She walks well on a leash and really enjoys walking in the park. Bonnie loves car rides. She gets in the car well on her own, but is a little afraid when jumping out, probably due to her vision impairment. She is calm in the car and always falls asleep. She has done great with other dogs she has met in my home and at the shelter. However, she needs a patient dog because due to the lack of vision in her right eye, she tends to bump into other dogs when walking or playing. She seems to really enjoy following my dog around the yard and just doing whatever he is doing. Bonnie is a medium energy dog. She is very playful with other dogs and is also very vocal in her play. She doesn't always pick up on social cues from other dogs, but she does take corrections well. All in all, Bonnie is a wonderful, intelligent, social dog. She has so much love to give and is so deserving of a forever family that will return that love. If you can give the perfect home to Bonnie, please complete the application at the following link: https://www.battleforthebully.org/adoption

American Pit Bull Terrier

Male, 3 yrs 5 mos
Gallatin, TN

(when grown) Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)

Story
Location is Tennessee Tater is a sweet, chonky, loveable 3-year-old bully mix. The Good: Tater LOVES training and taking long walks. He has a great recall and is really good at ignoring other dogs and people on walks! He is crate trained and potty trained and loves to snuggle with his people. Tater gets SOOOO excited his whole body will wiggle, and yes, it is the CUTEST! Tug is one of his favorite games, and he loves playing with Jolly Balls & in his pool in the summer. I know it sounds like Tater is PERFECTION (we think he is!) but there are some really important things to know... Tater's Situation: Tater spent the last few years of his life living in a home with two other canine siblings. When Tater had access to ample exercise and socialization with humans (Tater could go to work with his mom!), he did well with the other two dogs. Unfortunately, due to unforeseeable changes in his mom's life, Tater was no longer able to go to work, and longer work hours plus a new baby made exercising Tater & the other dogs extremely difficult. Tater and one of his siblings began to have conflicts that escalated to the point of it becoming an unsafe environment for Tater and his doggy sibling. We placed Tater in a foster to adopt home that we were hoping would be just right, but unfortunately the foster sibling in that home will not give Tater a chance, and the foster parents do not have the time to remediate this situation. For the safety of Tater and his foster sibling, it is imperative that Tater be moved as soon as possible. As a result of all the changes in his world, he has become overstimulated with lack of enrichment and exercise. Resource guarding items, whether it is toys or food is a response Tater has developed to help himself feel safe. This is not an appropriate behavior, and Tater will need to continue training with an experienced trainer that can help a potential family with getting Tater back to his confident self without fear or resource guarding. Tater's Needs: Tater is NOT for a first-time dog owner. He needs an experienced dog owner who will be completely committed to his success. Tater needs a job to do and plenty of exercise and enrichment to keep his brain engaged. We are currently hoping for a home with no other dogs, due to the failure of Tater with his foster sibling, though we could consider homes with other dogs with stable temperaments and plans to keep Tater and his siblings safe. We also do not recommend homes with young children (under the age of 13), because of Tater's history of resource guarding. Tater has had an evaluation from a trainer and a veterinarian who both believe Tater has the potential to shine in the appropriate home, but unfortunately everyone has given up on Tater thus far. If interested in Tater, please complete the following application: https://www.battleforthebully.org/adoption Please contact lovingthebullies@gmail.com with questions.

Story
Captain here, looking for a dog to lead the way? Consider me! I am loyal, goofy, and lots of fun! I can be nervous until we know each other better, but if you lived on the cold/hot hard streets you may be a little wary with new people too. Now, my time at the rescue has really really improved my life and I am SO MUCH more social and outgoing! I am a big, beautiful reddish-tan Pittie/Labrador mix with a white racing stripe down the middle of my chest! Our small canine family came to God's Dogs Rescue in a pickle, a rag tag group of Labradors and one pregnant female! We came to this safe haven with just 3 dogs and now we're a whole lot more! But all of us are now spayed and neutered and READY for furever families who won't leave us to run the streets and starve, we actually have gotten a little chunky, lol and REALLY HAPPY!! As Captain, I'll ensure that you are properly lead and motivated to get your day to day life moving! Well, that's because I need daily walks but besides the point! Some basic information about Captain; he is male, Pitbull/Labrador Retriever mix, and is medium/large-sized boy, at about 60#. Local adoption fee is $200 (in TX) Out of state adoption fee is $400 (includes transport to your area - $50 Temporary Fuel Charge will be added)
