Each month, the Dolly’s Dream Project sponsors two dogs available for adoption at Humane Society of the Treasure Coast. When you choose to adopt one of these dogs, you and your new furry friend will receive:
Meet Diesel! This handsome boy came to HSTC in late April when his family no longer had the time to devote to his care any longer. This sweet boy is 5 years old, easy going, and playful. He has become a volunteer favorite during his time with us. He keeps a very tidy kennel here at the shelter and may be housetrained. Diesel does have a tendency to guard items that he views as his and as such is not recommended to live with young children under the age of 10 years old and should have a meet-and-greet with any potential doggie siblings.
Joan of Arc has such an epic name and she is looking for an equally epic new home to match. She came in to HSTC as a stray back in mid-March, so we don’t really know anything about her past (or if she is on any grand quests). What we do know is that Joan is incredibly affectionate and very playful. She enjoys running, practicing on the agility field, and playing in the pool/ hose when it is hot outside. She knows several basic commands and is willing to learn more. Joan can be picky about her dog friends, so a meet-and-greet with any doggie siblings is a must; we want to make sure everyone gets along.
Walk through the kennels of Humane Society of the Treasure Coast and many other larger animal shelters in Florida and around the nation and you’ll discover quite a few dogs we lovingly call “Square Heads.” Big, tall, short, small they have one thing in common – a head that looks a bit “square.” At first glance, some would call a dog like this a “Pit Bull” or a “bully breed”. But truthfully, these are simply the mixed breed dogs that are now one of the most popular and most beloved dogs in America!
Dolly’s Dream is a project to encourage the adoption of our “Square Heads” and to help counter the unfortunate stereotypes and myths that some people still believe about these dogs. Humane Society of the Treasure Coast finds homes and new families for hundreds of these dogs each year. They are adopted by a wide variety of people – single people, couples, grandparents and families with children of all ages.
"Dolly” (pictured here) was a Square Head who opened the heart of the man who adopted her and taught him how loving, sweet and gentle these dogs can be. No different than any other type of dog.
Today, in her honor, Dolly’s Dream is to give dogs like her a second chance at life and the type of home every dog deserves.
