At the Bridgewater Falls Petsmart, two little girls apply to adopt a new puppy and also possibly save a life. Carson is a five-month-old American Pitbull terrier mix. According to Adore-a-Bull rescue, pitbulls are the most popular shelter dogs in the Tri-state, and the most likely to stay there.
"A lot of them don't have a fate. Once they hit that shelter, it's the end of their life unless people like us intervene. We're the last hope dogs have of making it out alive."
Danny Kaiser co-founded Adore-a-Bull Rescue in 2009 to bring bully breeds to homes...and out of high-kill shelters.
"Even my dog I have at home I just couldn't fathom the fact that he was going to be euthanized, and to see what a great dog he is today," Kaiser said.
The pitbull's aggressive rep means many families won't take a chance on a bully. But one of Adore-a-Bull's foster moms says she's never seen her foster "son" Benny be anything but sweet to her two-and six-year-old kids.
"You know he just likes to be held and snuggled and he doesn't like to be separated from, well, what he thinks is his family," Sara Russell.
Adore-a-Bull wants to find families for their dogs and keep them there. That's why they screen each adoptive family.
"There's no point in taking them from one bad situation to another bad situation...you want nothing but the best for them, best for the breed," Kaiser said.
The Sibcy family thinks it'll be the best thing for Carson.
"Yeah no I think it all how they're raised, all who raises them," Eric Sibcy said.
Although the small rescue only handles about 18 dogs at a time, the group has placed 85 dogs in loving homes since December alone.
