HOW IT STARTED
"Dolly” (pictured here) was a Bully Breed dog 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.
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Walk through the kennels of Halifax Humane Society and many other larger animal shelters in Florida and you’ll discover quite a few dogs we lovingly call “Bully Breeds.” Big, tall, short, small they have one thing in common – a head that looks a bit “square.” Often referred to as “Pit Bull” or a “bully breed”, 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 bully breeds” and to help counter the unfortunate stereotypes and myths that some people still believe about these dogs. Halifax Humane Society finds homes and new families for thousands 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.
Mufasa came to Halifax Humane Society as an owner surrender due to having too much energy. Mufasa is a 6 month old puppy in 2.2 year old body. He is partially house trained and loves to play outside. His previous owner said he had a lot of energy and he is very playful. He also loves chewing on toys.
Rosita came to the shelter as an owner surrender due to homeowner's insurance regulations. Rosita is an 8-year-old sweet old lady. Her previous owner described her a as a huge cuddle-bug. She loves attention and getting belly rubs. Rosita is very friendly with everyone, including children! Rosita was not the biggest fan of the cat in the home, she was curious of the guinea pig, and she did fine with the other two dogs. She is nervous around new dogs, but warms up quickly. Rosita is house trained and walks well on the leash.
