While walking through the kennels of Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League and many other animal shelters in Florida you will 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!
Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League 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. With the resources on this page, we hope to educate and encourage the adoption of these breeds that have been unfairly represented for years!
Interested in adopting a pit bull? 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! Each month, the Dolly’s Dream project sponsors four great dogs available for adoption at Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League. When you choose to adopt one of these dogs, you and your new furry friend will receive a number of adoption bonuses, including waived adoption fees!
