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:
Due to HSTC’s COVID-19 response, all adoptions are by appointment only. Please call (772) 223-8822 to schedule you appointment today! Danny, Max, and the rest of their adoptable friends can be found on our website here.
Jeffro is a sweet, mellow 5 year old American Pit Bull Terrier/ Hound mix who has been with HSTC since early January! He is ready to leave the shelter life behind and find his fur-ever home. Jeffro has a few requests for his new home – no cats, no small pets, new toys, plenty of car rides, and lots of opportunities for sun bathing. He is quite the couch potato and enjoys finding new shows to watch with you on Netflix. He also enjoys long walks and playing with his toys. Jeffro can be extremely picky about his dog friends, so he requests to be the only pup in is new home. Jeffro recently returned from a vacation in a foster home and they could not say enough good thing about him!
Max is a large boy who has been in the care of HSTC since January. When Max came to HSTC he was heartworm positive; he has since completed his heartworm treatment and is ready to find his fur-ever home.
Max is around 3 years old and weighs in at a little over 70 pounds. He is a little bit chunky because he is so very food motivated – he loves his treats! Max does know several basic commands and is a tidy gentleman in his kennel (he may already be house trained!). He enjoys playtime outside with toys and can sometimes be a bit of a rough-and-tumble player. Max is a ladies man and would love a home where he is the only man around.
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.
