Like Pit Bulls? Wanna help a really great guy, and his Pit Bull Rescue?

My friend “PitBill Ziegler” runs a pit bull rescue,  called PIT CREW RESCUE, he is a trusted rescue and friend and an all around hero to these dogs!  Abused, neglected, pregnant, he takes in as many as he can, and gets them the “Fur-always” homes that they deserve! Well he needs a little help with a boy named “Tread” Take a look at this gorgeous boy;

“Tread” was the Pit Bull we got the call on that was covered in ticks, beaten & chained to a tire after crossing multiple busy highways! Here is him adjusting wonderfully in foster with OUR volunteer “Andrew” As you know, we are in a financial crisis where we had stated we can NOT take on ANY more dogs. However, it’s hard to say “NO” when we get a call & see it up close & personal. … PLEASE HELP US by donating as little as $1, sharing or purchasing merchandise as ALL proceeds goes to OUR dogs as we need to pay off his medical & have him ready to adopt. Also you can call (631) 656-0211 as we can take credit cards over the phone. Blankets, toys, food, treats can be dropped off at the PCR Facility on right side of house by gate. Pit Crew Rescue 195 Victory Dr. Ronkonkoma, NY 11779 ALL DONATIONS ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE & ALL CAN BE DONE THROUGH OUR WEB PAGE AT www.PitCrewRescue.com Thank you in advance!

And I want to thank everyone as well, please share Treads story and the great work that Pit Crew Rescue does every day, they need our help and support so they can keep helping these awesome dogs!

We just found out and they are leaving on the 18th. Chopper is very urgent for a foster or home or he will end up back at the shelter were he came from about 5 years ago he is a gentle giant he is fixed and has had some shots please share him far and wide we only have days!!!!!!! any one interested can contact me at 661-889-2407 thanks guys he’s got only 8 days left and hell be heading to the shelter!!!

Chopper is located in Kern county Los Angeles. I believe but stacy will narrow it down for those interested.

For the love of Renton

I came across this today on Facebook;

Please help me find a GOOD home to go to very soon. I was saved from a very scary place by this wonderful group and my foster daddy. But now he has to move far away and can’t take me with him. I will need another place to lay my handsome head and eat my food. Will you give me that place? Will you be my new family? I will be your loyal furry companion forever and ever. If you like me (and I just KNOW I’m gonna like you), fill out an application here: http://www.saveaboxer.org/forms/form_humanverify?formid=2115 Please please share far and wide – my time is running out and I have to find a new home to go to very SOON! Love, Renton ♥

I have spoken with Renton’s foster dad and here are a few things he would like to share:

I’m moving to Seattle in a couple weeks.  Currently I’m in Holiday, FL, just north of Tarpon Springs. Renton is a great pup, but would do better in an environment where someone is home more often than not.  When I first got him, he had severe crate/separation anxiety issues, but he’s doing well in a crate now.  He just doesn’t seem to do too well in the crates at the vet’s office.  It’s also best to keep him active.  I walk him twice a day, each 3 miles.  He seems to get along with most other dogs, but had some resource protection issues when we first pulled him.  He and my dog Fiona get along very well together.  They play quite rough and to the casual observer, his wrinkling of his nose and teeth baring, combined with vocals may be interpreted as aggressive, but they’re not.

Renton is located in florida as stated so if you live in Florida and would like to make this charmer a part of your family please contact the rescue to fill out an application for foster or adoption today!

So it sounds like Renton has come a long way thanks to Mark, here are some of this handsome boys pictures as well:

Please share with anyone you trust that loves dogs, let’s help Renton get the fur-always home he deserves!

Change to the “Dog of the Week”…. An update.

I’m baaaaaack!

Phew!!! It’s been a grueling couple of weeks in the dog training course and it looks like my next section will be a big one too, but I’ll try to keep the posts coming more often.

I am sad to say that There didn’t seem to be a lot of interest in the dog of the week, Thank you so much to all the great families that sent in all those amazing pictures of their dogs and puppies, without you these dogs would be lost!

Thanks for showing the world what love and responsible pet ownership really means, you guys rock!

So with that said I am changing things up a bit, rather than feature your dog photo’s, I thought I would feature a dog in need, rescue’s and fosters, you are welcome to send in your pictures please make sur you send a photo, and complete contact info as well as the city, state or province, and Country as well. Don’t forget to add some details about the dog, everybody like to have the story behind the picture!

You can send them to apitomesblog@shaw.ca The goal will shift from showcasing the breed to saving them from certain death in some cases, in shelters and pounds and we all know that pit bulls make up the highest percentage of shelter dogs.

Today’s little gem will break your heart, make you fall instantly in love and inspire you to get involved! As far as I know he has no name so I have taken it upon myself to dub him Esperodo loosely translated it means “He has hope” in the basque language.

With out further ado here is Esperudo:

This emaciated boy wondered into Jennifer Marcel (SNARR adoptions coordinator) neighborhood and her husband picked him up. Looks like a new SNARR baby…. the vet said He is 12 weeks old, 12lbs, a broken k-9 baby tooth, dehydrated, loaded w…ith hook worms and will need possible surgery to repair the hack job done to his ears. To help with his care donations can be made through chipin http://snarr1.chipin.com/tonka or via PayPal @ snarr_1@Yahoo.com or through our website www.snarranimalrescue.org

Please help me to help SNARR to get this boy the help he needs and ultimately help him find a safe, loving, and fur-always home.

Thanks everyone for your patience and support while I have been busy at school, you guys ROCK LIKE NEW SOCKS!

So the dog of the week shall now be dubbed “Rescue Me Weekly” and may sometimes showcase more than one dog depending on urgency.

Have a great weekend!

This weeks dog is…..,Rose!

So this is sweet Rose, although she’s sleeping I can tell there’s a wonderful dog in there, I mean any dogs that looks like an angel when she sleeps, has to be one in real life right? LOL. I hear she’s quite the social butterfly as well!

Roses mom writes;

This is Rose, she is a year old APBT/boxer mix.  She is the goofiest little (or not so little) thing.  She is terrified of our cats and whines for us to pick her up and carry her past them. No easy task anymore since she is around 40 pounds now and getting bigger everyday. She loves our daughter and us immensely and rarely wants to be out of the room away from us.  She is amazing with other dogs and has quite a few dog friends at the park who get very excited to see her.  She is the love of my life.

Well Kristin, I can certainly see why! I’m glad she is yet another voice, or bark, if you will, for the cause.

Another fine example of what pit bulls, and mixes really are, Thank you for sharing your girl with us all, and thanks for showing more people, that responsible ownership equals great dogs! Have a wonderful weekend Kristin, Rose, and family! And remember everyone please share, and tell your pit bull loving/owning friends to email their pictures to apitomesblog@shaw.ca and I will gladly showcase their wonderful dogs as well, and even thought this is a pit bull blog we will gladly showcase any dog that is a positive and responsible member of the family and the community, here at Apitome’s Blog there is never discrimination based on breed, I love all dogs equally, and every special dog should have their day to shine and be recognized!
