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:
Sweet Pepper has had a very difficult time here at HSTC. She has extreme anxiety that causes her to attempt to hurt herself when she is not on medication. She is extra fearful of storms and requires additional medication to prevent her from hurting herself. Pepper is looking for a new home where at least one of her humans is home most of the time. Pepper came to HSTC back in July when her family could no longer continue to help Pepper with her anxiety. She has lived with cats without issue but seems to be picky about her dog friends. Due to her severe anxiety, it is not recommended that Pepper live with very young children.
When her anxiety is not so bad she enjoys food puzzle toys, going for long walks, and snuggles. She seems to be housetrained and lets staff know she needs to go outside with a sharp bark.
Little Pete is a large, goofy guy with tons of personality. At a little over a year old, he is extremely high energy and loves, loves, loves to play. He can be quite the rough player and doesn’t have many manners, so we do not recommend that he live with very young children at this time. Little Pete is picky about his dog friends and enjoys chasing cats. Underneath his crazy high-energy antics, Little Pete is a sweetie pie. During his stay at HSTC he has been calm and tidy in his kennel. If this one-of-a-kind boy sounds like the perfect one for you, stop on by the HSTC main shelter to meet him!
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.
