Aurora is single and ready to mingle!! Aurora is a 3.5-year-old American Pit bull Terrier and is very petite at 45 lbs. What can we tell you about amazing aurora?! Well let’s start with how she ended up at a very high kill shelter, which almost ended her life. She came into Apple Valley Animal Shelter with a litter of puppies and 4 other male dogs. She was scared out of her mind and covered in scars. It is highly probable that she was used as a bait dog. The male dogs that came in with her where all humanely euthanized at the shelter due to severe human and dog aggression. Despite the condition that she came in, she did her best to care for her puppies at a loud and overwhelming shelter. The shelter sent out a plea for rescue help because all their kennels were full and they were going to start euthanizing for space. This is where we step in… Due to her possible previous situation of being a bait dog, she is not good with other dogs. The scars all over her face tell us a story of a terrible past, but we don’t want that to be her story. Her previous humans used her for profit and then tossed her out like trash. She deserves a place to call home. A warm bed and a family to love her forever.  Bait dogs are practice dogs that dog fighters use. They keep them weak and chained up, so their prize fighters don't get hurt, basically a punching bag. And sometimes force them to breed to make the next generation of fighting dogs. Aurora just wants a human family to love and cuddle with. She is a huge sweetheart and loves to give you her paw and lean on you for belly rubs. She is good with children, but older kids are recommended due to her exuberate personality and the chance of zoomies are high.  If you are looking for a dog who will be endlessly loyal, make you smile and laugh, and soak up all the love you have to give, then Aurora is your girl. She will meet new people with a huge smile and outgoing personality and will be the life of the party. Wont you make a difference in her life? Show her that her past will not affect her future? We understand adopting a dog who is not good with other dogs will restrict how social you can be with her, but just take a look in her eyes and you will know in your heart that she was meant for you. Show her that from now on, all she will get from humans is love and affection, and that she is enough. Interesting in adopting Aurora? Please fill out an application on our website.

Meet Lilly! This beautiful girl is 7 years old with a bounce in her step and big smile.  She is all white with a soft short coat and a pink nose with freckles.  She is smart and needs limits or she will take over every bed and couch in the house. Once rules are established, she is very responsive to gentle redirection.  She is crate trained and fully potty trained.  Lilly loves to be with her family and would do best with a single person or a couple with no young children.  She can be possessive of her family, so it is suggested that she is the only animal in the house. She will bark at knocks on the door and at people she doesn’t see regularly so she is a great protector.  She is a great work from home Buddy, spending most of her time right next to her owner and being most content in the house where she feels safest.  She does experience separation anxiety which is demonstrated by her vocalizing when you return home and jumping up to be in your space, while wagging her tail and smiling.   She would be an awesome exercise partner and loves taking walks in the neighborhood.  She loves to ride in the car and will sneak kisses to you while you are driving.  She lived in an area with trees and critters and will chase them with determination. Lilly is an awesome dog with a lot of love to share. Her smart and playful personality will keep you entertained and bring your home so much joy.     Thank you for wanting to adopt from Hank's Legacy Foundation.
