Sassy

Sassy

My name is Sassy. I am a little over five years old and new to the rescue. I came to my foster home where there are seven other rescue dogs. My foster mom says I am a great dog. I love to run around the yard, snuggle and get belly rubs. I have come such a long way from the life I knew before I was rescued.

My whole life I lived outdoors, with a heavy chain that kept me from being able to go any further that my dog house. I wasn’t allowed to go indoors no matter what the weather. This is all I knew since I was 8 months old. I was used for breeding until I was 4 then I was adopted by a neighbor who grew to love me. But my life was still outside, my dog house and chain came with me. When she couldn’t care for me she posted me on Craigslist ” Free, can still have puppies”. That’s when The Miracle Foundation found me.

I’ve been with my foster mom for about 5 months. My mom says I am very smart and eager to learn new things. I have learned to walk on my leash, and I know sit, down and stay. I also am very polite and ask to go out. My mom has also taught me that a kennel is a safe warm place to sleep at night or stay when she is not home. When my family is home my preference is to be with my humans, go for walks, or just cuddle. I get belly rubs which I enjoy very much.

I have met lots of other animals here, we have three cats and our neighbors have horses which I am getting used to. As for my health, I have been to the vet, and was recently spayed and was brought up to date on all my vaccines. The vet checked me over, I was treated for fleas and a few hot spots. I am very healthy now.

I am looking to find a family I call my very own. A family that will let me love them and allow me to be the dog my foster mom says I am. She says I have a silly personality and am very curious. I love the outdoors but I am very happy to come inside and be with my family, especially when it’s cold. My mom has me on a very healthy diet which has made me lean and strong.

IT’S THE PITS DOG RESCUE

itpbanner

It’s The Pits is a 501c3 canine rescue that coordinates the fostering and adoption of dogs that haven’t yet found their permanent home. We specialize in American Staffordshire Terriers (“Am Staffs”), Staffordshire Bull Terriers (“Staffy’s”), and American Pit Bull Terriers, but will do our best to help all breeds, often by referral to other local rescues that specialize in that type of dog. We work alongside our fosters to give the dogs a temporary and loving home before they are placed into permanent homes. We rescue dogs from various shelters, evaluate them, ensure they are healthy, and then match them with the appropriate family. We take pride in matching the best dog for the individual family that contacts us. We do this by matching the activity level of the dog to the family’s needs, as well as making sure that the other pets in the home work well with the new addition to the pack. All of this is important in finding the forever home for our rescued pets.

Rosie

Beautiful Rosie came to us with her two puppies who have recently found forever homes of their own. Rosie is now looking for her very own home to recover from mom life. She would do wonderful in a home where she could just hang-out in the house or yard with you, as she is a bit of a home body. She likes most other dogs but needs a calm intro to new doggies and people.

Jango

I’m a happy & sweet puppy but like any puppy, I will need love, structure and training. I would love to have a doggie brother or sister to grow up with but would be OK as the only dog too. I haven’t had all of my shots yet so I must be in a house with a private backyard. I won’t be available to go to my forever home until June 4th but you can complete an application today 🙂

SamSam

Meet Sam, the one-eyed wonder dog! Sam’s journey in life may not have started out the best but he is sure the happiest dog there is! Sam ended up at the vet clinic I work at and it looked like he had been hit by a car. He ended up needing to have his left eye removed and has a limp on his left front leg (xrays show no damage).  He still has a limp but it never slows him down and once he recovered from his other injuries, he has never looked back. He literally has a permanent grin and his face, loves to wag his whole body and loves cuddling with people. He loves dogs and people of all sizes.  With new dogs he is a little shy and submissive but quickly warms up and loves to play bow and skip around during playtime. He is kennel trained and nondestructive to bedding or blankets. His favorite toys are big plastic bones or kong toys. He is very smart and loves learning new tricks- he currently knows: sit, shake and the “wait and eat” command before eating. We are still working on leash manners. He is house broken and loves to go on car rides. His ideal life would be short walks, cuddling, and getting to hang out with people or other dogs during the day. Please consider giving Sam an opportunity at finding his forever home.

Dori

 

Dori

I’m Dori! Me and my mom Gem were picked up as strays in LA and ended up at the shelter. It was a really scary place. Fortunately, the people at ITP here took us in. I’m really a very happy and lovable little girl that enjoys playing with my male doggie friends. I love being petted and held – I’m really quite cuddly! My favorite thing to do is play fetch, especially with a squeaky toy! I just love it! You throw it, I promise to bring it back. Got a pool? I love water! I splash and roll around. You can teach me how to jump in and swim! My ITP peeps think I’m the total package – young, fun and cute as a button! If you come meet me, I promise you’ll fall in love!

Stitch

Hey there, I’m Stich! I am almost a year old and am quite the outgoing fella! I love meeting new people and get really excited so I’m working on controlling my excitement but am doing a great job learning simple commands like sit and to wait for my food before eating. Cuddling and playtime are probably my two most favorite things! I would really like a forever family who will take me on lots of walks and play with me when they get home from work 🙂

5 Roosters Looking for a Home!

Howdy y’all !!!  McDonald is emailing everything to put the word out that we have some amazing farm animals looking for a ranch to call their own here at the Department of Animal Services. We currently have 5 roosters that are all looking for their forever home.  The reason he is spreading the word is because the first two roosters have been here for over a year and the third rooster will have been here for a year as well on 6-9-17.  Even though the staff is amazing at DAS, a shelter life is not enough and these guys deserve a home to call their own.  The last two roosters have been here since February of this year but McDonald hopes to find them a home too so that they are not here for the next year as well

So old McDonald is looking to sell his farm and wants to see if any of you have room for his farm animals and/or to at least see if you would spread the word to see if your friends, family or neighbors might.  If you are interested, please contact me (Donald) at 760-966-3255.

5 Roosters Looking for a Home!

Howdy y’all !!!  McDonald is emailing everything to put the word out that we have some amazing farm animals looking for a ranch to call their own here at the Department of Animal Services. We currently have 5 roosters that are all looking for their forever home.  The reason he is spreading the word is because the first two roosters have been here for over a year and the third rooster will have been here for a year as well on 6-9-17.  Even though the staff is amazing at DAS, a shelter life is not enough and these guys deserve a home to call their own.  The last two roosters have been here since February of this year but McDonald hopes to find them a home too so that they are not here for the next year as well

So old McDonald is looking to sell his farm and wants to see if any of you have room for his farm animals and/or to at least see if you would spread the word to see if your friends, family or neighbors might.  If you are interested, please contact me (Donald) at 760-966-3255.

Sassy

Sassy

My name is Sassy. I am a little over five years old and new to the rescue. I came to my foster home where there are seven other rescue dogs. My foster mom says I am a great dog. I love to run around the yard, snuggle and get belly rubs. I have come such a long way from the life I knew before I was rescued.

My whole life I lived outdoors, with a heavy chain that kept me from being able to go any further that my dog house. I wasn’t allowed to go indoors no matter what the weather. This is all I knew since I was 8 months old. I was used for breeding until I was 4 then I was adopted by a neighbor who grew to love me. But my life was still outside, my dog house and chain came with me. When she couldn’t care for me she posted me on Craigslist ” Free, can still have puppies”. That’s when The Miracle Foundation found me.

I’ve been with my foster mom for about 5 months. My mom says I am very smart and eager to learn new things. I have learned to walk on my leash, and I know sit, down and stay. I also am very polite and ask to go out. My mom has also taught me that a kennel is a safe warm place to sleep at night or stay when she is not home. When my family is home my preference is to be with my humans, go for walks, or just cuddle. I get belly rubs which I enjoy very much.

I have met lots of other animals here, we have three cats and our neighbors have horses which I am getting used to. As for my health, I have been to the vet, and was recently spayed and was brought up to date on all my vaccines. The vet checked me over, I was treated for fleas and a few hot spots. I am very healthy now.

I am looking to find a family I call my very own. A family that will let me love them and allow me to be the dog my foster mom says I am. She says I have a silly personality and am very curious. I love the outdoors but I am very happy to come inside and be with my family, especially when it’s cold. My mom has me on a very healthy diet which has made me lean and strong.

IT’S THE PITS DOG RESCUE

itpbanner

It’s The Pits is a 501c3 canine rescue that coordinates the fostering and adoption of dogs that haven’t yet found their permanent home. We specialize in American Staffordshire Terriers (“Am Staffs”), Staffordshire Bull Terriers (“Staffy’s”), and American Pit Bull Terriers, but will do our best to help all breeds, often by referral to other local rescues that specialize in that type of dog. We work alongside our fosters to give the dogs a temporary and loving home before they are placed into permanent homes. We rescue dogs from various shelters, evaluate them, ensure they are healthy, and then match them with the appropriate family. We take pride in matching the best dog for the individual family that contacts us. We do this by matching the activity level of the dog to the family’s needs, as well as making sure that the other pets in the home work well with the new addition to the pack. All of this is important in finding the forever home for our rescued pets.

Riley

Riley

Hi World, I’m Riley! I was brought to the shelter after I was attacked by two other doggies and bit in the head which was pretty scary. Thankfully I got super lucky and the people at It’s the Pits took me in and took me straight to their vet for a head x-ray to be sure that I didn’t have any major injuries. Lucky me, I just needed some antibiotics, rest and TLC. I have been recovering with our behaviorist and his family to get calm socializing and to continue healing but now I’m all ready for my very own forever home! Despite my scary experience, I love other doggies and think playtime is awesome 🙂 If you’d like to add me to your family, please complete an adoption application today!

Please consider sponsoring Riley with either a one-time or monthly tax-deductible donation. Your donation will help It’s The Pits with day-to-day care, including food, vaccinations, flea treatment, treats and toys. Click on the Sponsor This Pet link above to make your donation today. Thank you!

Jasper

I’m a happy & sweet puppy but like any puppy, I will need love, structure and training. I would love to have a doggie brother or sister to grow up with but would be OK as the only dog too. I haven’t had all of my shots yet so I must be in a house with a private backyard. I won’t be available to go to my forever home until June 4th but you can complete an application today 🙂

Please consider sponsoring Jasper with either a one-time or monthly tax-deductible donation. Your donation will help It’s The Pits with day-to-day care, including food, vaccinations, flea treatment, treats and toys. Click on the Sponsor This Pet link above to make your donation today. Thank you!

Buddy

Hey, I’m Buddy! I originally came to ITP a couple years ago and was adopted pretty quickly. Unfortunately, I have recently rejoined the rescue since I really wasn’t doing well living in the chaos of downtown San Diego. I’m back on the search for my true forever home and hope to find it soon! I’m a social guy, love humans, great with mellow doggies and have been said to be a total lovebug 🙂 If you’re searching for a social, lovable guy to join your family, please fill out an adoption application!

SamSam

Meet Sam, the one-eyed wonder dog! Sam’s journey in life may not have started out the best but he is sure the happiest dog there is! Sam ended up at the vet clinic I work at and it looked like he had been hit by a car. He ended up needing to have his left eye removed and has a limp on his left front leg (xrays show no damage).  He still has a limp but it never slows him down and once he recovered from his other injuries, he has never looked back. He literally has a permanent grin and his face, loves to wag his whole body and loves cuddling with people. He loves dogs and people of all sizes.  With new dogs he is a little shy and submissive but quickly warms up and loves to play bow and skip around during playtime. He is kennel trained and nondestructive to bedding or blankets. His favorite toys are big plastic bones or kong toys. He is very smart and loves learning new tricks- he currently knows: sit, shake and the “wait and eat” command before eating. We are still working on leash manners. He is house broken and loves to go on car rides. His ideal life would be short walks, cuddling, and getting to hang out with people or other dogs during the day. Please consider giving Sam an opportunity at finding his forever home.

Please consider sponsoring Sam with either a one-time or monthly tax-deductible donation. Your donation will help It’s The Pits with day-to-day care, including food, vaccinations, flea treatment, treats and toys. Click on the Sponsor This Pet link above to make your donation today. Thank you!

Dori

 

Dori

I’m Dori! Me and my mom Gem were picked up as strays in LA and ended up at the shelter. It was a really scary place. Fortunately, the people at ITP here took us in. I’m really a very happy and lovable little girl that enjoys playing with my male doggie friends. I love being petted and held – I’m really quite cuddly! My favorite thing to do is play fetch, especially with a squeaky toy! I just love it! You throw it, I promise to bring it back. Got a pool? I love water! I splash and roll around. You can teach me how to jump in and swim! My ITP peeps think I’m the total package – young, fun and cute as a button! If you come meet me, I promise you’ll fall in love!

Stitch

Hey there, I’m Stich! I am almost a year old and am quite the outgoing fella! I love meeting new people and get really excited so I’m working on controlling my excitement but am doing a great job learning simple commands like sit and to wait for my food before eating. Cuddling and playtime are probably my two most favorite things! I would really like a forever family who will take me on lots of walks and play with me when they get home from work 🙂

He has been neutered, wormed and is up-to-date with his Distemper/Parvo and Rabies shots. A home visit will be conducted to help ensure the right home for him and his new adopter.

LouLou

Lou is a 10 yr old lab/mastiff looking for a new, loving home due to a family situation. He is up to date with all shots, trained, kid friendly (as long as they realize he’s 10 and not a horse 😉 ), loves to cuddle, run, and play! He’s currently in Seattle, but we work for the airlines, so they will bring him to his new home. He may be okay with cars – he lives with one now, but that’s the only one he’s ever known. He’s never tried to harm the cat, they leave each other alone.

Lou is extremely friendly and lovable! His health is good and has had no problems that we are aware of. We absolutely adore him and are devastated to have to find a new home for him – Please only inquire if you serious and will take absolute wonderful care of him!

If interested, please contact Frederick Brodie at (808) 554-4533.

IT’S THE PITS DOG RESCUE

It’s The Pits is a 501c3 canine rescue that coordinates the fostering and adoption of dogs that haven’t yet found their permanent home. We specialize in American Staffordshire Terriers (“Am Staffs”), Staffordshire Bull Terriers (“Staffy’s”), and American Pit Bull Terriers, but will do our best to help all breeds, often by referral to other local rescues that specialize in that type of dog. We work alongside our fosters to give the dogs a temporary and loving home before they are placed into permanent homes. We rescue dogs from various shelters, evaluate them, ensure they are healthy, and then match them with the appropriate family. We take pride in matching the best dog for the individual family that contacts us. We do this by matching the activity level of the dog to the family’s needs, as well as making sure that the other pets in the home work well with the new addition to the pack. All of this is important in finding the forever home for our rescued pets.

Riley

Hi World, I’m Riley! I was brought to the shelter after I was attacked by two other doggies and bit in the head which was pretty scary. Thankfully I got super lucky and the people at It’s the Pits took me in and took me straight to their vet for a head x-ray to be sure that I didn’t have any major injuries. Lucky me, I just needed some antibiotics, rest and TLC. I have been recovering with our behaviorist and his family to get calm socializing and to continue healing but now I’m all ready for my very own forever home! Despite my scary experience, I love other doggies and think playtime is awesome 🙂 If you’d like to add me to your family, please complete an adoption application today!

SamSam

Meet Sam, the one-eyed wonder dog! Sam’s journey in life may not have started out the best but he is sure the happiest dog there is! Sam ended up at the vet clinic I work at and it looked like he had been hit by a car. He ended up needing to have his left eye removed and has a limp on his left front leg (xrays show no damage).  He still has a limp but it never slows him down and once he recovered from his other injuries, he has never looked back. He literally has a permanent grin and his face, loves to wag his whole body and loves cuddling with people. He loves dogs and people of all sizes.  With new dogs he is a little shy and submissive but quickly warms up and loves to play bow and skip around during playtime. He is kennel trained and nondestructive to bedding or blankets. His favorite toys are big plastic bones or kong toys. He is very smart and loves learning new tricks- he currently knows: sit, shake and the “wait and eat” command before eating. We are still working on leash manners. He is house broken and loves to go on car rides. His ideal life would be short walks, cuddling, and getting to hang out with people or other dogs during the day. Please consider giving Sam an opportunity at finding his forever home.

I’m really a very happy and lovable little girl that enjoys playing with my male doggie friends. I love being petted and held – I’m really quite cuddly! My favorite thing to do is play fetch, especially with a squeaky toy! I just love it! You throw it, I promise to bring it back. Got a pool? I love water! I splash and roll around. You can teach me how to jump in and swim! My ITP peeps think I’m the total package – young, fun and cute as a button! If you come meet me, I promise you’ll fall in love!

King

King

King is the sole survivor of a litter of 12—his mom and 11 siblings died, shortly after childbirth on the streets of Tijuana. At a day old King was found barely alive. He was taken to a chihuahua who was nursing puppies but she rejected him. He was taken to another nursing chihuahua—Emily who is available on our site—and she took him as her own and he joined her four pups. King is now 30 pounds but up until the time they went to separate foster homes, no one seemed to notice the size difference. His ‘siblings’ Gannon, Bennet, Florence and Madeline played nonstop with him and when it was naptime or night time, they all curled up on top of him. When he needed it, Emily scolded him and he cowed just like Emily’s real puppies. King is a little slow to warm up and trust but all things considered, that is understandable. Once he trusts though, he has a very sweet nature; he thinks he is a lap dog and wants to sleep in the bed with you. He is just learning to walk on a leash but he seems to like it and I think he could even turn out to be a great jogging buddy for the right person. King had a rocky start in like and now we want to make sure he gets the best home out there. King is available through Chihuahua Rescue of San Diego. You can fill out an application at www.rescueachi.com to get pre-approved and then let us know how and where to contact you to set up a meet and greet.

5 Roosters, 1 Pig, Possibly 2 Goats Looking for a Home!

Howdy y’all !!!  McDonald is emailing everything to put the word out that we have some amazing farm animals looking for a ranch to call their own here at the Department of Animal Services. We currently have 5 roosters, a pig and possibly 2 goats that are all looking for their forever home.  The reason he is spreading the word is because the first two roosters have been here for over a year and the third rooster will have been here for a year as well on 6-9-17.  Even though the staff is amazing at DAS, a shelter life is not enough and these guys deserve a home to call their own.  The last two roosters have been here since February of this year but McDonald hopes to find them a home too so that they are not here for the next year as well.

Our pig is named Waddles and he has been with us since 5-5-17. Mr. Waddle is around 1 year old and due to moving to a new home his family relinquished him to DAS.  To his family he was seen more like a dog than a pig.  When they had to give him they showed us videos of waddles being super social with the family, small children, other animals especially dogs. While with us we have neutered him and cleaned his teeth.

We just got in two stray goats and I am hoping their family comes forward for them but if you are interested in them check back with us on 5-26-17 to see if they are still here.

So old McDonald is looking to sell his farm and wants to see if any of you have room for his farm animals and/or to at least see if you would spread the word to see if your friends, family or neighbors might.  If you are interested, please contact me (Donald) at 760-966-3255.

He is calm, playful and loving.  He gets along well with other dogs, people and children.  He is house trained and knows how to use a doggie door.  He would be great with a family or an individual who is active.   He wants to learn and rides in the car great.  “Harley” weighs about 45 lbs, but will probably get up to about 70 lbs. He has been neutered, wormed and is up-to-date with his Distemper/Parvo and Rabies shots. A home visit will be conducted to help ensure the right home for him and his new adopter. An application for adoption will be requested. “Harley’s” rehoming fee is $200.  Medical records will be provided.

LouLou

Lou is a 10 yr old lab/mastiff looking for a new, loving home due to a family situation. He is up to date with all shots, trained, kid friendly (as long as they realize he’s 10 and not a horse 😉 ), loves to cuddle, run, and play! He’s currently in Seattle, but we work for the airlines, so they will bring him to his new home. He may be okay with cars – he lives with one now, but that’s the only one he’s ever known. He’s never tried to harm the cat, they leave each other alone.

Lou is extremely friendly and lovable! His health is good and has had no problems that we are aware of. We absolutely adore him and are devastated to have to find a new home for him – Please only inquire if you serious and will take absolute wonderful care of him!

If interested, please contact Frederick Brodie at (808) 554-4533.

He has been neutered, wormed and is up-to-date with his Distemper/Parvo shots. Medical records will be provided. He is the ultimate burglar alarm system. He will protect you and your home by letting you know if someone’s there who shouldn’t be. He loves to go for walks. He is a bit anxious when first meeting people, especially men, and needs time to warm up to them. Once you give him the time to warm up to the situation (mostly ignoring him), he will connect. He responds well to positive reinforcement and patience when training him. He enjoys his treats and waits patiently for you to get home. He runs to greet you with a wagging tail and welcoming jump. He does enjoy the company of dogs and gets along with children.

A home visit will be conducted to help ensure the right home for him and his new adopter. An application for adoption will be requested. Medical records will be provided. Bernie’s rehoming fee is $100. Please contact ‘D’ at (619) 462-2270 or 22fivegal@gmail.com for more information on adopting Bernie.

Dusty Rose – Super Sweet Foster Kitty!

I am fostering a beautiful tuxedo cat in need of a home. I originally found Dusty Rose in my backyard, and ended up fostering her after her microchip contacts did not return calls. She is estimated to be around 4-5 years old and in good health. She needs to be the only animal as she seems insecure around other animals.Contact me if interested in pictures of her or to check her out.

Sassy

Sassy

My name is Sassy. I am a little over five years old and new to the rescue. I came to my foster home where there are seven other rescue dogs. My foster mom says I am a great dog. I love to run around the yard, snuggle and get belly rubs. I have come such a long way from the life I knew before I was rescued.

My whole life I lived outdoors, with a heavy chain that kept me from being able to go any further that my dog house. I wasn’t allowed to go indoors no matter what the weather. This is all I knew since I was 8 months old. I was used for breeding until I was 4 then I was adopted by a neighbor who grew to love me. But my life was still outside, my dog house and chain came with me. When she couldn’t care for me she posted me on Craigslist ” Free, can still have puppies”. That’s when The Miracle Foundation found me.

I’ve been with my foster mom for about 5 months. My mom says I am very smart and eager to learn new things. I have learned to walk on my leash, and I know sit, down and stay. I also am very polite and ask to go out. My mom has also taught me that a kennel is a safe warm place to sleep at night or stay when she is not home. When my family is home my preference is to be with my humans, go for walks, or just cuddle. I get belly rubs which I enjoy very much.

I have met lots of other animals here, we have three cats and our neighbors have horses which I am getting used to. As for my health, I have been to the vet, and was recently spayed and was brought up to date on all my vaccines. The vet checked me over, I was treated for fleas and a few hot spots. I am very healthy now.

I am looking to find a family I call my very own. A family that will let me love them and allow me to be the dog my foster mom says I am. She says I have a silly personality and am very curious. I love the outdoors but I am very happy to come inside and be with my family, especially when it’s cold. My mom has me on a very healthy diet which has made me lean and strong.

My favorite thing to do is play fetch, especially with a squeaky toy! I just love it! You throw it, I promise to bring it back. Got a pool? I love water! I splash and roll around. You can teach me how to jump in and swim! My ITP peeps think I’m the total package – young, fun and cute as a button! If you come meet me, I promise you’ll fall in love!

Stitch

Hey there, I’m Stich! I am almost a year old and am quite the outgoing fella! I love meeting new people and get really excited so I’m working on controlling my excitement but am doing a great job learning simple commands like sit and to wait for my food before eating. Cuddling and playtime are probably my two most favorite things! I would really like a forever family who will take me on lots of walks and play with me when they get home from work 🙂

Our dogs are from county animals shelters or from previous owners that are no longer able to care for their dog. All of our dogs are started on housebreaking, however, we do not guarantee that they will be housebroken. We offer education on how to housebreak a dog as well as other information on different situations. Every dog is spayed or neutered, current on shots, dewormed, frontline for fleas and ticks. Thank you for considering a rescue dog!!!

King

King

King is the sole survivor of a litter of 12—his mom and 11 siblings died, shortly after childbirth on the streets of Tijuana. At a day old King was found barely alive. He was taken to a chihuahua who was nursing puppies but she rejected him. He was taken to another nursing chihuahua—Emily who is available on our site—and she took him as her own and he joined her four pups. King is now 30 pounds but up until the time they went to separate foster homes, no one seemed to notice the size difference. His ‘siblings’ Gannon, Bennet, Florence and Madeline played nonstop with him and when it was naptime or night time, they all curled up on top of him. When he needed it, Emily scolded him and he cowed just like Emily’s real puppies. King is a little slow to warm up and trust but all things considered, that is understandable. Once he trusts though, he has a very sweet nature; he thinks he is a lap dog and wants to sleep in the bed with you. He is just learning to walk on a leash but he seems to like it and I think he could even turn out to be a great jogging buddy for the right person. King had a rocky start in like and now we want to make sure he gets the best home out there. King is available through Chihuahua Rescue of San Diego. You can fill out an application at www.rescueachi.com to get pre-approved and then let us know how and where to contact you to set up a meet and greet.
