A very handsome black and white Pitbull, currently about 3 years old.
We rescued Jackson from the county shelter when he was about 1 year old. He's very energetic and rarely got out of his kennel. One day a volunteer took him out and he was so happy to get out, he jumped up and accidentally scratched the volunteer. For this "crime", he was quarantined for 10 days and scheduled to be euthanized. Fortunately, we were able to adopt him out.
During his rehabilitation period, we found that he was a very remarkable boy, as he got along with everyone and even aggressive dogs. We called him the 'dog whisperer', but he did have one problem, he would attack sticks, brooms, vacuums, etc.. To correct this, we hired a professional trainer who was able to break that habit and thus he became a true ambassador of the breed.
About a year later, we found the perfect match. He was adopted by a wonderful man who has a home with over an acre along with 4 other dogs and a cat. Although it took a while he is now living a dream life in his forever home.
A large good looking Austrailian Ridgeback mix about 2 years old.
Roger was in the county shelter where he was incorrectly labeled a pit mix but he was deemed to be an adoptable dog. He passed the shelters so called temperament test. After a couple of weeks for some unknown reason they gave him another temp test and somehow he failed this time and was removed from the adoptable population. Fortunately, as volunteers we asked what happened and were told he was animal aggressive and scheduled to be euthanized. We knew that this was probably not true so we signed waivers and adopted him out.
Roger really didn't need much rehabilitation as he was just mislabeled as aggressive as so many are in county shelters. During his lengthy foster period we found him to be an all-around wonderful dog and knew he would make for a great pet and companion.
Roger was another one we had for about a year but we eventually found another perfect match. He is now living with an older couple and another dog on 1.3 acres. He gets many visits from their children and grandchildren who love to play with him. He also gets to go camping and loves it, he is another living a dream life.
