We have a true southern gentleman on our hands here folks! Part of our shelter outreach program, Mr. Toad came to us via Hollow Creek Farms in South Carolina on March 1, 2013. His southern family couldn’t say enough about this stocky mush of a pup, and were excited for him to make his journey up to the Jersey Shore. In the time he has spent with us, Mr. Toad has won the hearts of everyone he has met, and is a real staff favorite. He is super laid back, but gets a quick burst of energy when he is promised a good walk or a romp around our agility pen. There is no question that Mr. Toad is a true ‘pit bull’. He absolutely adores spending time with his favorite staff or volunteers. Whether it’s going for a stroll, riding in the car, going to offsite events, or taking a snooze behind the front desk, all this boy wants is to just BE with his people.
This is one big, silly pup! King came to us on June 29, 2012 when his owner could no longer care for him. Their loss will surely be someone else’s gain! This handsome guy is a lap dog in the body of a seventy pound pittie. Some of King’s favorite pastimes are making new friends at his obedience classes, chasing after tennis balls in the agility pen, giving kisses to his favorite staff members, and curling up in his BFF Jimmy’s lap. This boy isn’t just a happy go lucky goofball though. King is as smart as he is handsome, and will soon be working towards becoming a certified pet therapy dog. Once certified, King will visit people who need a little emotional pick me up, and will provide many with his special brand of comedy.
Both Mr. Toad and King show that ‘pit bulls’ come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. While they are both very different dogs, each have one major trait in common; they are willing to do anything to make ‘their’ people happy. These boys are both wonderful ambassadors in the world of ‘pit bull’ type dogs.
