Kaos & Kin

Well, here's a momma, Kaos, and her surrendered babies.


The shelter writes --

"Previous owner said she was only a year old???Also, does NOT like cats (FYI).

She wags her tail around other dogs as long as they aren't near her babies (gives them a warning then). Puppies are being dewormed now."


Chunk

to be neutered

Note the little beauty markings our shy boy has on his coat -- !!

AWWW -- okay, we'll let you be shy -- !!

Callas

Female

BEAUTY!


What a little LADY --

-- and God sent her along with make-up already APPLIED -- !!


Leo

Male

WRINKLY!


As with his brothers, little Leo has him some beauty markings -- !!

Mr. big-nose-bigger-head is oh-so-sweet!

Note the white paws -- that's how he doesn't get confused with Chunk!

King

Male

to be neutered

Wrinkle, wrinkle!


Ooohhh -- mr. exotic-pants with his markings here -- !!

He says, "Wrinkles -- what wrinkles??!!"

:D


Lolly

Female

black beauty!


Ms. shy and demure -- such a LADY!

Aww -- two beauties -- !!

 

Mojo

Volunteer writes --

"Mojo (he's a doll- less than a year old and someone cut his ears pretty bad)"


Well, he certainly is a DOLL --

-- and okay, his ears aren't perfect, but that's called CHARACTER -- !!


Awww -- such personality this boy has -- !!

:(

"Mojo was ceased due to improper care."


 

Lady

"Lady (the boxer mix)"


Ms. Lady is basically a one-in-a-billion shot at figuring out an adoption --

-- WE CAN MAKE IT WORK, mmmkay?


She's a playful thing, our Lady, too --

-- PLEASE CONSIDER AN OLDER MOM --

-- you'd get points in heaven if you did -- !!


 

tricky

"I think there is one more pit up there too (Tricky)- she was abandoned"

WHO -- i mean WHO, abandons little girls like this??


She's a beauty, and is only a year old.

Plusl, she comes SPAYED and MICRO-CHIPPED -- !!


Please consider the adults, as well as the pups, in this rather dire situation, to help the Marion volunteers make a difference, and for you, too, to make a WORLD of difference for these pups -- !!

How do you start?

Fill out an adoption application at the top of this page -- !!

Things I like in an application:

- Applicants who join our pit bull forum, at www.pbsmiles.com. There, you'll find a small army of pit bull lovers -- 1,500, at the present -- !! For you, the adopter, you can learn about canine diet, pit bull temperaments, multi-dog households, and you can meet a nice group of people. For us, the rescuers, we can see your baby as they grow with you, hearing your stories about them and seeing pictures you post of them in their news lives -- win-win, right??!!
PLEASE DON'T IGNORE THIS PRE-REQUISITE -- it means a lot to us here -- !!
- Adult adopters, ready to be adults. People aware of the responsibility of a puppy, and aware this puppy will become an a medium-sized dog, with its own temperament and personality. Adult adopters who are ready for a 15 year commitment. This puppy does not have a depreciating "useful life" that is over when it becomes an adult -- instead, this dog's whole life is useful -- !!
 
- Owners who are aware of and who respect the pit bull temperament. This means people who know you can't "love" dog aggression out of their dogs -- instead, owners who are RESPONSIBLE with their pups -- crating them when unattended, supervising them with children, never leaving them outside unattended, and those who are ready for licks and lovin' in return! For more on dog aggression, click here.
 
- Adopters who treat their newest addition like a member of the family, realizing that this isn't a "dog in the box" and that its little life must be encouraged to go the right path and that obedience, socialization and training will get her there -- !!
 

- Financial commitment. Adopters willing to spend money on their new investment, including premium foods (like Candidae, Wellness, Nutro or raw food), plus adopters who will invest in pet insurance or a "dog fund", lest vetting be required, which may get expensive.

The adoption fee is $275 per dog. This is reasonable, considering the premium services that each pup gets. Each dog, before placement, is examined by a licensed veterinarian, spayed or neutered, wormed with premium wormer, given vaccinations on a regular basis (not just a one-shot deal), microchipped with a premium Home Again chip (made by Schering -Plough), fed premium puppy food (not 'Ol Roy, or some other filler-laden junk) and has spent it's puppy fosterhood in a wonderful, attentive, CLEAN environment. There are 4-5 homes fostering these babies, and that is a LOT of logistics, driving, CARE, etc. -- but it's entirely worth it! Also, each puppy is accompanied by a personal home visit to YOUR home at placement, to ensure they're going to have the life of a king or queen -- !! If the home visit doesn't pass, puppy doesn't stay. This isn't some parking-lot-of-a-pet-store adoption scheme, instead, it's the highest-quality service I can provide for these young souls, as they journey off in to their lives.

 
- Smart and informed adopters, who research this breed and who realize that these pups are not for everyone. Pit bull temperament can be Googled, and a great start can be found here.
