Foster Application Prenotes:

Pit Bulls are very loving animals that require an enormous amount of love, time and energy. They are very hard to re-home when they reach adulthood.

Only One in Six-Hundred are Adopted. Which Leaves Five Hundred Ninety-Nine that are Euthanized!

I love each and every one of my foster dogs like my own. They live in my home and become part of my family. When they leave, I expect them to become a part of your family and not be returned a year later an unsocialized, untrained, unadoptable dog. I ask that you think about this carefully before making a decision. If, after adopting, you find this dog is not for you, they are to be returned to me early enough where no damage is done; I understand that things do happen in one’s life and I will always take the dog back into my home. This is a lifelong commitment. I have worked very hard making them true ambassadors of the breed and expect you to do the same.
