Happiness is a warm puppy.

Thursday "Furs"day
* a little late*

So, as you can read in my mini-bio to the right of the posts I am obsessed with pits. Yes, I know it's not a breed, it's a broad term, it doesn't matter to me, what matters is getting people's attention.

A couple months ago here in southern Connecticut officials broke up a small fighting ring. When was the last time you heard about a pug being pulled from one of these things?......Yeah. Didn't think so. It is always pit bulls or those that look like them. I cannot actually put into words my disgust for this. There is nothing more cowardly than dog fighting. And few actions speak louder to a persons character. 

Since last year, when Ace my own part-pit son came into my life, I have been keeping an eye on pit bull rescues. There are more than any other kind of rescue it seems. These are the most misunderstood and abused dogs in the world. Bully Breed Rescue out of southern CT has been a name that has popped up verbally as well as on the internet.

This little baby is Seven. Her bio reads as this.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and in this case, that may be true. Look at Seven now. Kissing one of our volunteers and loving life. This is a very different dog from back in February when we picked her up off the street in Bridgeport, bleeding, emaciated and with serious injuries, including two broken legs. She had been left to die and people were seen kicking the cardboard box she lay in. 

We weren't sure that she would make it through the night or that she would ever be able to run and jump and enjoy life in a deserving home. But, Seven is a survivor. With a lot of help from her doctors and love from her foster family, Seven has recovered and blossomed into a beautiful young girl who loves to run like a Greyhound. At just 45 pounds, she is petite and sweet. 

Seven has come such a very long way. She is a sweet, happy dog now. Her physical scars have healed and her emotional ones are healing too. Seven likes to be with people and would prefer a home where she can receive a lot of attention. Seven is estimated to be just under a year old. She is full of energy and likes other dogs - she lives with a male Pit mix in her foster home and they are great friends. Seven has been through so much – now she just wants a soft place to be - a place to call home, forever. 

Seven is fostered in Norwalk, Connecticut and is available for adoption to homes in the local area. 

If you are interested in welcoming Seven into your family, please contact 

Bully Breed Rescue -

Please even if she is not your ideal dog, please at least adopt and don't 'buy' a dog. There are so many murdered each day because they are unwanted. Your local shelter typically has adoption fees for as little at $50 (here in CT). That is a literal STEAL. Spending $500 on a pure bred dog doesn't mean you are getting a 'better dog'. You'd be surprised how many shelter dogs are pure bred dogs that are just thrown away.
