Rockin’ Rescue Owners: Jamie Hale and Roger Pearson- tattoo artists (check out more of Jamie’s work: facebook.com/tattoosbyjamie)
Gorgeous Pups: Deebo (5 years, Pitbull), Vader (4 years, American Bulldog/Pittie mix), Mancha (3 years, American Bulldog/Pittie mix), Stitches (2 years, Pitbull)
100lbs of Awesome: A friend of mine had found a pit bull puppy in a bag on the side of the road and I was going to take him in so I had my house puppy ready and he found a different home. I was heartbroken so I decided to look for another puppy to rescue. I found Vader and his brothers and sisters on Petfinder. His mom was a 60 pound pit bull. Vader grew… and grew… into a 100 lb American Bulldog mix. He is now a therapy dog in training.
Like Glue: I got Deebo from a vets office. I decided to foster him until I could find him another home. His owner wanted to have him euthanized because he couldn’t keep him in his apartment. I decided to keep him because he is attached to me like glue and never wants to leave my side.
Not Too Much Work at All: When I met my boyfriend he had Mancha. Mancha came from a very pregnant woman who apparently decided a puppy and a baby were too much work.
Testosteroney: We decided there was too much boy at the house and that’s when I found Stitches. She was at Miami Dade Animal Control, skinny, filthy, and covered in ticks. There is breed ban in Dade County so she was awaiting her death. We fell in love with her antics so… here she is.
