This is what I know. I am usually volunteer at the Humane Society as a dog walker, foster mom, or if they do a large abuse seizure I bath alot of animals. Today was my first transport. The last Director started programs in our local shelter to get cats, kittens, dogs, and puppies a better chance for adoption. There are larger agencies such as St. Huberts, found at www.sthuberts.org
, that have more funding and a larger potential adoptive home audience. After todays experience and last nights research ( I had to find out myself about St Huberts) I found out there are many such transport moves from many smaller shelters with less fundings. They do have rules, I did see one pitty mix on St Huberts petfinder list but I was told they do not except pitty dogs or puppies from transport. The transport that Halo (her new name) was going on tomorrow, I had no real information on. There are very Quality people working toward a better solution at our HS but I was not able to let Halo go as an underdog. It was my understanding they had to get them to agree to take a pit puppy. With that being said, guess what? My husband and I adopted Halo tonight upon our return. As soon as I find my digital camera, I am going to get her picture and all of my crew's pictures up. She is outstanding, both in temperment and in looks. I found out that a breeder gave her away because she had accidently gotten bitten by an adult through her hind quarters when she was much smaller. Halo has some scaring on her inner thighs but seems to have no physical complications. My husband is active duty National Guard NCO and is an EOD (bomb guy), he is also Hazmat qualified which qualifies him to be a handler for SAR schools. Our little Halo is going to be a working pitbull and I plan on putting her up on the gallery and keeping everyone up to date.
