5.26.19 Good Morning from Sonnie

Sonnie was adopted back in February and through no fault of her own has come back. Unfortunately sometimes that happens but we’re committed to finding this girl the great family she deserves. If you're looking for an amazing addition, Sonnie could be your girl. She loves walks, she loves to snuggle up with you on the couch and she loves, loves, LOVES dogs and kids. She is super playful but knows when to just chill. She likes to watch movies, play tag with kiddos (or adults) and just behaves so well. She is about 98% potty trained and still learning all basic commands. Interested in meeting Sonnie? Find more info at

5.22.19 Hi from Van

This is Van. He’s a good boy who had a rough start to life. Van was adopted from the shelter in TX when he was a puppy. After about a year he was returned to the shelter. At the time of return, he was unable to use his back legs. The adopters unfortunately would give no explanation as to how he lost the use of his back legs. X-rays were immediately done and thankfully they came back clear but Van still had a long road ahead of him. At this point we suspect he had nerve damage and a back leg that had been broken and never healed correctly. Once Van arrived at Minnesota Pit Bull Rescue, he started with chiropractic and acupuncture work. He was also fit with a brace for his leg and this has helped tremendously. He is able to walk and even run now! He is a happy dog that just needs a home with love. We would be thrilled to see him in a home with another dog or kids as he does really well with both. He would do best in a home without cats. Please, give this sweet boy a chance. Find more information at
