Pit Bull

Tank has a very special story and therefore deserves a very special home. He is a rare Shadow Leopard Pit Bull. I want him in an adult only home as I don't ever want him used as a baby sitter dog - no dog should be used as a baby sitter. He is super sweet and friendly. His backstory: He was abandoned at the Luther Unit in Navasota Texas, found chained and dying to an old rusty truck on an old rusty chain. No one would take him but me - the county has no shelter (only me as a nonprofit rescue who works with the Sheriff Department). The City wouldn't take him as he was found a few feet over the city line, therefore considered a county street/dumped dog. A kind couple found him, found me, and the rest is history. I had never taken in a pure Pit Bull. I had only heard bad stories. When I drove up to where he was found, I got out of my truck; he had such sadness in his eyes and was very gout. I said 'Tank?' and he stood up proud and wagged his tail at me. He sat down, waited for my approach. I handed him a treat; he didn't know what that was. The finder cut his chain and took it off his neck. Tank laid down. I stood over him, and whispered, 'now I am here to help you, don't bite me'. My face was next to his as I picked him up and placed him in a crate in my truck. He turned around and licked my face. I am teaching him to play. He has never had anyone love him until now and thanks to his finder. He will be neutered and he WILL NOT be used as a bait dog or fighting dog. He has been inside with me and outside now. Serious inquiries only. We do not adopt out of state. Go to and go to forms, complete the application, the contract and send me a picture of where he will live. I do home visits, reference checks and background checks.
