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 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.
Each month, the Dolly’s Dream project sponsors two great dogs available for adoption at Halifax Humane Society. When you choose to adopt one of these dogs, you and your new furry friend will receive:
|Adoption Fee (a $70 - $100 value)||Toy (Kong toy)|
|Microchip||Training Treat Bag|
|Up-to-date vaccinations||Training Treats|
|Harness||Private Obedience Training|
|Heart-worm Treatment (if required)||$35 Grooming Package Certificate|

Angie is a Dolly’s Dream Dog!
Between the big ears and the basset hound feet you can’t help but fall in love with this girl. Angie came to Halifax Humane Society through our animal control services because her owner couldn’t keep her. We have been keeping her busy learning basic obedience at our Prison Pups n Pals program. She can sit, come, down, stay, leave it, touch, is crate trained and would love to show you what she knows. This girl enjoys making new friends and meeting new people. If you want to have the smartest dog on the block, Angie is for you!
