My name is Rocky...well because I am a fighter! I had an old leg injury that looks painful, but I have pushed through and do not let it slow me down.
I was rescued from the local animal control with no history on me or what happened...I just want to say I am over it and want to move forward and enjoy my life with a family who wont judge me based on my appearance or breed=) I am a very sweet puppy who is currently being fostered with small children and dogs of all sizes and do great!
My leg was checked at the vet in the shelter, but GTTD said they are going to have me re-examined to see if there is more they can do for me to ensure I dont have any future problems with my leg.
If you cannot adopt me...please dont let that stop you from sponsoring/donating to GTTD for help with my medical care! Thank you!

I was rescued from the local animal control with no history on me or what happened...I just want to say I am over it and want to move forward and enjoy my life with a family who wont judge me based on my appearance or breed. My leg was checked at the vet in the shelter, and by 2 other veterinarians who concur that Rocky is best not to have amputation or surgery and he will live a good life the way he is! My adoption fee is $200 which covers all of my medical care including spay, microchip, rabies, vaccinations, and wormers.
We only consider your home for adoption after we receive an application. Once this is complete we then move on in the process to adopting your new best friend. Once we receive an application we review it to see if the particular dog(s) might be a good fit for your home/lifestyle and that you meet the required needs of the dog. Once this is done we proceed to check veterinary references. This is to ensure that pets you have or have had in the past were cared for, altered, and up to date with necessary medical care. Once you have been through this initial screening we then set up a home visit to ensure that the home is a safe home with little concern about their personality matching yours. We also want to ensure that the home is set up for the same energy levels or medical needs they may or may not have (dog that can't climb stairs, or not enough room to walk, etc.) These steps are important to ensuring that we are finding the proper home for the dog to be FURever!
A few requirements of adoption are:
*We currently do not adopt out of state. *We do not adopt to homes with smoking indoors due to health concerns for the pets *Our 'bully' breed adoptions require you to be a homeowner, have a fully fenced yard (not invisible fencing) unless you have acreage, and you are required to attend an obedience training class. This is due to the high rate of returns in dogs that are not properly exercised or trained and make it difficult to re-home. *We are a registered not for profit and do not earn a salary, our adoption fees are recycled to help rescue our future dogs. We are always looking for assistance on our team as well as donations to help run our rescue smoothly.
Frequently Asked Questions:
1. I applied to adopt a pitbull but we have an invisible fence not a solid fencing, can we still adopt?
-unfortunately invisible fencing is not full proof fencing and does not protect your own dogs from other loose dogs
