A potpourri of pups -- woo-hoo!


Click on the logo below to fill out an adoption application!

 

Click here for app



Below is some moms, their pups, and a couple of others --

-- all looking for new homes!

At right is momma Sparkles, up for adoption, more pictures of whom can be found here.

And below are her babies, all up for adoption in the next two weeks -- by 10/15/07!

Note, some of the babies had a towel bath prior their photo shoot -- and they're a bit fluffy -- !!

 

Ms. Freckles' 19th October snapshot --

-- baby's got a cute, wispy beard coming in, and she's cute to boot!

Two weeks later, October 19th, 2007 --

-- all neutered, working on growing his beard in, and READY TO GO HOME!

Here's Ms. Aster's October 19th, 2007 update --

-- spay is done, and baby is showing some personality!

Ms. Clover's 19th October beauty-shot --

-- admittedly, she is my favorite -- :D

Here's Cosmo's 19th October shot --

-- mr. handsome --

-- he says, "look at how beautiful black dogs can be!"

 

Next is momma Kaos, who came from the deep South with ber babies in tow.

Kaos is MUCH better named "Delilah" --

-- she's a little lady, with a svelte personality, and a penchant for snuggling!


This girl is only 1-2 years old herself, and is full of kicks and vinegar!

Below are her three remaining pups -- all of whom look like their mom, and who are a bit larger than Sparkles' babies, so they're more prone to rough-housing and playing -- just the way we like it -- !!


 

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 -- 905, 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.
