About Linus

Meet our sweet by Linus!! This boy is going to steal you heart he is darling and such a love. Linus is great with other dogs large and small. Linus is part Dane so he's a tall boy the shelter noted him as 5 but he is definitely more on the puppy side maybe 2 years young. He's very puppy and loves to play with his favorite toy you see in his photos. After he says hello to you he runs to find his toy it's just like Linus with his blanket in the Peanut gang! ;-) Linus is an absolute lap dog. He doesn't know he how big and lanky he is and we find it adorable! While he is great with children, we ask that they be over 5 years old, since they are tall enough not to be knocked over by this big happy guy. We can tell Linus was a stray for a long time he is scared of moving cars and doesn't do well on cars rides at all....he will bark and get stressed as soon as he sees a car pass, but the foster is working on this so it will take time and patience. All around he is an easy and sweet boy full of love. If you are interested in our Linus please complete our adoption application located on our website www.passionforpitties.com under "Adorable Adoptables." Thank you, The Passion for Pitties Family

Hello everyone! My name is Brie! I’m a beautiful 2 year-old little sweetheart that never stops SMILING! I’ve been at the shelter since May 29th when I arrived as a stray. Sadly, no one came to look for me there. I’m not sure why, since I would never stop looking for my family! The wonderful people at Passion For Pitties were so kind to pull me from the shelter and now I spend my days with my lovely foster family. This cutie pie is a social butterfly who enjoys being with people and LOVES belly rubs! However, I get a little nervous about being hugged or cornered, so young children could be problematic until I adjust to a loving home. Definitely treat-motivated, but I take them very gently. Going for walks is one of my favorite things to do, but I pull a little on the leash, so I’ll need a bit of help to learn how to walk nicely. I’ve also done pretty well during dog-to-dog intros! However, I still need proper introductions and supervision (as all dogs should have) and would probably feel more comfortable with one mellow dog or no dogs at all until I acclimate to a home environment. Please help us get Brie into a safe, loving forever home! If you're unable to help by adopting, sharing this post or donating is always appreciated. Don't forget, Passion for Pitties is a 501(c)(3), so all donations are tax-deductible!…every little bit helps!

Hello everyone! My name is Etta and I am a sweet loving 8 year-old Pittie! My name is Etta and I listen pretty well when my name is called. I’ve had plenty of experience with puppies of my own. Because of this, I am very CARING of my 2 ½ year old foster brother Dallas. He and I gently play together a few times a day, often times playing tug-o-war with the toys, which I am perfectly fine with sharing. If I am done playing before Dallas is, I gently start to tell him I’m over him and may even voice it a little bit, but never get aggressive. I LOVE to sleep on my fluffy bed next to my foster mom while she works during the day. We have a routine down to where if I get up, I typically need to go pee and as long as she listens, I don’t have any accidents in the house. Plus, I have a nice size yard to play in and get lots of exercise there. Walks are great too and will typically listen when told to ignore something, but I do get excited when I see someone or another pup that I want to play with. So, I am working on that! I also love my 17 year-old human foster brother. He will play with me and pet me and let me give him all kinds of kisses! We all usually have play time outside in the evening til we are all pooped out. I even like to lay on my Human Foster Brother and sit on his lap. I don’t get on the couch or beds unless you ask me to. When its bedtime, I will go into my crate no problem and sleep there through the night. It’s nice and cozy! Oh, I also love to go on car rides! We go at least once or twice per day. Starbucks trips for puppaccinos are my FAVORITE! I will climb up into the car no problem, but sometimes need assistance with getting out. I do have a tumor on my back leg, which will be getting removed in August. It doesn’t really bother me much, but it does get in the way of things. For the most part, I’m a pretty chill girl that loves to be by my foster mom’s side. I do bark a bit when I hear noises outside that indicates someone might be there, but I just want to make sure everyone is safe! Other than that, I do howl and bark a little when I want attention or when she leaves me at home, but will eventually settle down. I am looking forward to meeting you and getting my forever home!

**ADOPTER or FOSTER NEEDED** Hello everyone! Meet adorable Guppy! Guppy is 2 ½ years old and approximately 70-80 pounds. This sweet boy was going to be dumped at the shelter because the people who had him decided that they just didn’t want him anymore. Thankfully, a very kind person stepped in to save him and help him find a family who truly deserves this little love bug. That kind person is asking for our help in finding that perfect family. Guppy is currently staying with 5 other dogs and has been great with all of them, small and large. He’s been very sweet with all dogs he’s met in and out of the home, but he does need a bit of training since he never received any from the family who abandoned him. We don’t have much other information on this little guy yet, but we’ll continue to update as we learn more about him. Please help us get sweet Guppy into a safe, loving forever home!

Meet our boy Lucas! He's about 7 years young and a true puppy at heart! Lucas is approximately 65lbs of hunk a love....he is on a diet since he was at the shelter for quite a while and let's just say he really loves his food and all that sitting around in the shelter kennel didn't do wonders for his figure ;-). Even though he's a big boy he thinks he's a lap dog, he'll sit on you and be perfectly happy on your lap if you let him. Happiness in a lap...not too bad :-). Lucas LOVES attention (emphasis on LOVES)!! He'll nudge you with his cute nose or he'll paw you for pets...don't ignore this boy ;-). Looking for a cuddle buddy?!! We found your boy!! Professional couch potato as long as you sit next to him. Now don't get confused he LOVES his walks!! He will follow you everywhere you go...yep everywhere so no lonely bathroom breaks for you LOL. Turn around and there he is... He like chew toys, he was without them for quite a while so please put your shoes where they below in the closet or you won't have them anymore. Make sure he eats away from any other dogs or he'll go straight to their bowls and eat theirs no extra calories Lucas and that's just rude :-). Lucas makes new friends everywhere he goes, he's really excited to meet everyone and he may jump on you for a moment just to let you know his big butt is there just in case you missed him ;-). Because of this we feel older children might be best just due to accident happy knock overs, but he's great with children also. He's pretty good with other dogs. He ignore dogs that bark at him as well as other dogs being walked while he's on his stroll. He's living with a female staffy that is over selective of her doggie friends and he gets along lovely with her even those she stares at him LOL. Lucas loves car rides but once you lift him in...know you will need to lift him out as well...good luck on both it just the beginning and the end that need attention but he's getting the hang of it and really loves the car. He like his bathes so bath time is a easy with Lucas. Lucas is such a good boy, he deserves a home that will give him all the love that he deserves. A sweetheart all the way around. xoxo If you are interested in our Lucas please go to our website under adorable adoptables and complete our adoption application. All Passion for Pittties dogs are altered, microchipped and current on vaccinations. Thank you, The Passion for Pitties Family. show less

Hello everyone! My name is Marshmello! I’m a 2 year-old sweet, handsome, super goofy boy whose personality is emerging more and more every day as I get settled in my foster home. Sadly, my story is all too familiar in that my previous “family” abandoned me at the shelter, but my foster dad was so kind to pull me from the shelter and now he is working with the wonderful people at Passion For Pitties to give me a chance at a better life. Below is a little bit more about me: • Super FRIENDLY with humans and love to be as close to you as possible! This Velcro dog enjoys getting his belly rubbed and will win you over instantly! • LOVE to play fetch in the park and is one of my favorite things to do. • One of my funny quirks is to chase my tail on occasion. Unfortunately, my tail is undefeated! • Enjoy going on long walks, but am still learning proper etiquette. However, I am eager to please and will have that down in no time. • Overall obedience is excellent and know all the basic commands. I’ve been told I’m an A+ student! • Am well behaved around other dogs whether off-leash or on my walks. I can get excited when I initially meet other dogs, but that’s because I haven’t had any interactions from being at the shelter for the past year. Just need proper socialization. • Am eager to please and just need to learn what you want from me. • Potty-trained and crate-trained as well. I am a sweetheart who really wants a family to help me become the best dog ever. A family that can help me to realize the happy, loving life that I deserve! Will that be you? Please help us get sweet Marshmello into a safe, loving forever home! If you're unable to help by adopting, sharing this post or donating is always appreciated.

*ADOPTER OR FOSTER NEEDED ASAP* This gorgeous girl is 7 year-old Mocha. 😍 Mocha arrived at the shelter as a stray on 06-15-2020 where she was found fending for herself alone in a field. 😔 Mocha looked to have been out on her own for quite some time before ending up in the shelter, as she had long nails, was very thin, and had a few cuts and scrapes on her legs. She was so scared and unsure of her surroundings that it took about 10 days before shelter staff could successfully even get her out of her kennel, 💔 but once they did, she became a totally different dog! Her little tail wouldn’t stop wagging as she happily greeted everyone she met and allowed all kinds of handling as the staff loved on her and did their exams. Mocha knows a couple of commands which leads us to believe that she was once part of a family, but due to being on her own for so long and/or no other formal training, she’ll need a strong handler who can help her learn polite doggie manners. 😇 Mocha will also need some work on being around other dogs, as she’s currently too excitable and doesn’t understand boundaries, so she’d do best in a home without other animals or small children for now. Once she’s had some basic training and safe, appropriate exposure, there’s a good chance that with the right family, she’ll eventually do well with other dogs or kids. 💜 If you would like to adopt our loving dog Mocha, please fill out an application at www.passionforpitties.com under the “Adorable Adoptables” heading. show less

Hello everyone! My name is Nala and am a total sweetheart! Below is some information about me: • I’m approximately 7 months old. • One look into my eyes and I will make you fall madly in LOVE! • Very energetic and would do well in an athletic and active home. One with a yard would be great since my zoomies are top notch. • Relaxing outside is nice too, you know. • I am still learning how to be a dog, so sometimes I am kind of awkward when I run and I bounce around like a deer. It is so CUTE! • I am highly curious and love to discover everything around me. • Great with dogs and cats too. However, turns out I’m allergic to cats. Go figure! • Great with kids as well. I previously lived with 5 kids and the youngest was 2 years old. • Seem to be having a little trouble with vision in one of my eyes, so might go for one of my toys when you are playing with me and accidentally get you. I don’t mean to do it and I’m getting better. • Potty-trained and crate-trained and know my basic commands. Please help us get Nala into a safe, loving forever home!

We really need to be adopted together because of our strong bond and will not be separated under any circumstances. Thank you so much for understanding!!!

**FOSTER OR ADOPTER NEEDED ASAP - BY AUGUST** Hello everyone! This cutie pie is Sharky! Due to a lack of training and being too excitable, sweet Sharky was dumped by his "family" on 4/20/2020. 😠 Sharky deserves a chance and will need some extra love and patience as he acclimates to a safe, loving home environment; as if being abandoned at only 8 months of age wasn’t enough, it was also apparent by the marks on his nose that he was stuck wearing the velcro muzzle he was left at the shelter with for extended periods of time. 😔 He's clearly been through a lot in his young life and is very confused about what's going on and why he lost his family so we're doing everything we can to set this little guy up for success, which even includes some extensive in-house behavioral training to help him become the calm, polite boy we all know he can be. Sharky is very young and like most bull terriers, can be determined, so even after training, he’ll need a dog-savvy person/family to keep him on the right track. 💙 While at the shelter, he did well with other dogs but it was noted that he has a rough-and-tumble play style. At this point in time, he’d do best in a home without young kids or small animals. Please help us get sweet Sharky into a safe, loving forever home!

Hello everyone! I’m an adorable and handsome 9 year-old Bull Terrier/Pit mix named Stitch and I’m in need of a new home. My previous family was going to have me euthanized, but the wonderful people at Passion For Pitties were so kind to save me and now I spend my days with my lovely foster mom. Such a sweetheart and I absolutely LOVE people! My favorite activity is snuggling up next to my humans on the couch and am a master at it – despite having no concept of personal space. Will curl up next to or on top of any person! Unfortunately, my previous family had a baby about a year ago and the baby’s behavior has made me increasingly anxious, leading them to make the difficult decision of finding another home for me. I’m great with older kids, but due to the impulsivity of young children, a home with kids aged 10 and older would be best. Enjoy lounging in the sun, going for walks and am very food motivated! Know all the basic commands and am potty/crate-trained. Although I have some separation anxiety, I do not exhibit destructive behavior and am fine with staying in my crate. Although I have lived with a Jack Russell since 2012 in a largely peaceful coexistence, would be best to be the only pet in the home at this time, as I often react to other animals. A strong and experienced owner that has an active lifestyle to give me the proper exercise I need would ideal. With the right leadership and proper training, my new owner can help me overcome my issues to become the best dog ever. Unfortunately, I just didn’t get that with my previous family. Please help us get sweet Stitch into a safe, loving forever home! If you're unable to help by adopting, sharing this post or donating is always appreciated.
