This is Roo, Agility winner for the “All-American” category (aka mixed breeds). At 11 months, she was found in McLaren Park in San Francisco, brought to the SPCA, and given a new home and a great hobby. Fuck breeders, dog shows, and the AKC. Adopt, and teach your mutt all the tricks.

I found a wandering pit bull pup crying outside my door and spent about 2 hours asking around the neighborhood about her. She is sweet, chubby, and about… 4-6 months? she has a mixture of puppy and adult teeth a very puppy looking. She is about 25 pounds. She doesnt bark or bite, super duper friendly and gets along with dogs, as she has not bothered my two chihuahuas.
I cant care for her. I have 2 dogs and a rabbit and no money to really feed her on top of them. I need her somewhere tonight as my complex is strict against pit bulls and would have her pounded and I’d be fee’d for it.
Humane society cant take her either :(
Anyone want to hold a baby pit as I post signs around until we can find her a home? It would only be temporary.
I live in Greenville, South Carolina- five minutes from downtown.
If someone can take her for a week or so that would be splendid.
Please, I am desperate. I have work tomorrow as well as my sister and we will be gone for 8 hours. She will probably bark and get me in a lot of trouble :<

Blind pooch and his guide dog brother get new home
- Pit Bull-mix puppies, Jeffrey and Jermaine, found roaming Philadelphia last month
- Jermaine acts as a guide dog for his blind brother Jeffrey
- The eight-month-old pooches have an incredible bond and always maintain physical contact
- The pups have a new home after being cared for at an animal shelter
When animal welfare workers found two Pit Bull pups roaming the streets of Philadelphia two months ago, they quickly realized there was no splitting them up.
Jermaine acts as a guide dog for his blind brother Jeffrey, gently nudging him in the right direction.
Now the eight-month-old orphans have a new home with a Springfield, Pennsylvania couple who say they’re overwhelmed by the brothers’ love.
The dogs became social media darlings last month when an adorable photo of them entwined while sleeping at a rescue shelter was shared around the world.
'When they walk, even on separate leashes, they are always bumping into each other to check that the other one is there,' new owner Victoria McKee told Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
'If Jermaine is off leash, he will run around and come back to check in with Jeffrey to make sure he's OK. If they're both off leash, they stay very close and Jermaine kind of herds Jeffrey around.
'It's remarkable how deep their bond really is.'
McKee and her husband Jonathan Hochman were selected to adopt the brothers from a pool of hopeful applicants, taking them home on November 25.
Although the gorgeous canines have recovered from the malnourishment, scrapes and upper respiratory ailments they gained while living on the streets, McKee said caring for a handicapped pup can be tough.
Jeffrey is blind in his left eye and sees only shadows with his right. But McKee said the pups are easy to get along with and love spending time with the family cat, Blabbus.
‘We didn’t just have to puppy proof, we had to blind puppy proof,’ McKee said.
'As we continue to introduce them to new spaces, Jermaine always falls back to the role of caregiver and seeing-eye dog.'
The pups were put up for adoption by Operation Ava, a no-kill animal shelter that seeks to find forever homes for abandoned animals.
Operation Ava CEO Claudia Gutierrez said the shelter received thousands of applications after the cute picture of the dogs embracing went viral. But she said McKee and Hochman seemed like the perfect fit.
'They were looking for a pair of dogs to adopt together. They don’t have any children and decided that their pets are their children. They’re a really close couple,' she told Mainline Media News.
A Facebook page set up to keep people updated on Jermaine and Jeffrey’s adventures has more than 37,000 likes.
McKee said Jeffrey and Jermaine have taught her and her husband the beauty of living simply. She said the dogs still cuddle when they sleep.
'We've learned the power of simplicity, from paring things back to ensure their safety,' she said.
'You really don't need much to be comfortable. A roof overhead, some food, a warm blanket, and family is really all you need.'
adoptpets: This just melts my heart. These brothers love each other so much. And these pups such beautiful markings!

Attention BAY AREA this hammy boy is UP FOR ADOPTION at the Martinez shelter. Tomorrow is his LAST day to find a home before euthanasia. We would love to pull him but don’t have an available foster. If you are in the area, please go check him out! He is a staff favorite and such a ham! Full of kisses and cuddles! They have NOT tested him with dogs yet, but he apparently seems very easy going. Please, give this dude a shot, or if you are available to foster an adult bully please email email@example.com
Look at that big ol head! Someone please give him a home!

“Hi! My name is Grace Kelly. I was named after that beautiful actress who became a princess. I’m told I am as beautiful as a princess, and sweet and friendly.
I was once without a home, living outside, and having to find my own food to eat. Then someone saved me from that lifestyle and brought me to this great place! I don’t have to worry about being cold anymore, or having to struggle to find food. Cat Angels provides me with all the food I could want!
I’m not too fond of other cats, because as a princess I believe I should get all of your attention! I do love people, though. Don’t you need a beautiful, friendly princess in your life? I think I can fill that position, if it is available.
Please come down to meet me at this wonderful place. No - you don’t need to get an “audience with the princess” - just come on down.
Grace Kelly lives at the Cat Angels Cat Adoption Facility in Cary, NC. She can be seen during the regular adoption events from noon to 4:00 pm on Saturdays or by appointment with an approved application. You can fill out an application at http://www.catangelsnc.org. For more information, you can call 919-463-9586.”

Cutie Chihuahua up for adoption in Bay Area!
Winnie is currently being fostered in Oakland but would like a forever home of her own! I love her big ol’ ears! Details:
I am fostering a little 4-pd chihuahua through A Leg Up Rescue, a nonprofit 501c3 organization dedicated to rescuing dogs and cats from life-threatening situations. All of these companion animals were either in danger of being euthanized in animal shelters, neglected or abused, or taken from the public (when space permits) so they are not bounced around to different homes or collected and sold to research labs by “bunchers.”
The dogs name is Winnie and she is a very sweet, loving 1 year old puppy who was abandoned in a cardboard box outside a shelter in Monterey. I am fostering her in Oakland and hoping to find her a forever home! She loves walks outside just as much as snuggling deep in the covers. She is great with my other dog, so she would definitely be OK in a multipet home.
Contact Kate if you want to know more/adopt Winnie!
