About Kimbo

At Chesterfield County Animal Services in South Carolina, Kimbo is a long time favorite.  Here is what one volunteer had to say about him:

"Good afternoon,
Where do I even start… We have a very special case. Kimbo came to our shelter in Chesterfield SC years ago.

Kimbo was taken from a home that had several dogs tied out and severely neglected. The owner passed away and all these animals were left with his wife and she could not care for them. He was NOT dog friendly and was heartworm positive when he came in, he is now hw neg. After this many years living at the shelter, everyone has fallen in love with him. The shelter staff treat him as if he was their own. He loves living at the shelter and is not broken by it. He is a happy sweet, smooshy face who loves to run and play tug-o-war and fetch and ADORES people and kids.

However, we, the volunteers, have watched his face grey and his wiggly body age and we KNOW there has to be a better life for him. He has watched hundreds upon hundreds of dogs come in and leave but it is never his turn. After all of these years some volunteers did a brief dog test with him on leash and he did fine. He recently had the opportunity to go have a mini-vacation with one of our volunteers who has 3 other dogs. He has met all of them through the door and through his crate. The only time he growled or showed any improper behavior was when one of the volunteers dogs growled at him first and he growled back. No lunging etc.
She has been taking him on walks with her female and he mostly ignores her. They have let her off leash and she has sniffed him and he didn’t care at all. They have walked past barking, howling coondogs that were running around a neighbor’s yard only contained by an invisible fence and while he was interested in the ruckus he was very easily redirected. While we do think he should live in his forever home as an only dog, he can easily be around other dogs on leash without any issues. 

We really feel now that he has had a taste freedom he really really deserves a chance. With a knowledgeable owner we really believe that he will flourish and be able to live out his last days. We estimate him to be about 8+ years old so he definitely deserves a soft spot to lay his.  We are truly desperate to find this guy his forever home. While he doesn’t mind the shelter, as it is the only place he has ever known love, I know that he deserves so much more. We fear that one day his sweet little body will give out and he will pass away of old age on a cold concrete floor all alone.

We understand that this is a huge undertaking for someone to take on, a black, senior pit bull that has spent more than half his life behind bars. BUT I just know he can do it, I know he can love someone with all his being and he deserves that chance, so I will beg and beg until someone sees what I see.

Thank you."

Mostly Muttz Rescue is hoping to make Kimbo's dream of a furever home come true.  While he currently resides in South Carolina, for an approved adopter willing to love him forever, Mostly Muttz Rescue can transport him and adopt him out through our rescue.  So, if you know what it is like to be passed over again and again, maybe Kimbo is the kindred spirit you've been looking for.  You can apply to adopt Kimbo at www.mostlymuttz.org.

7/14/2019  Bagpipe (DASH) checking in.    He's been a wonderfully fun boy to foster.  He is sweet, mild mannered and now that he learned that visitors no longer pose a danger to him being abused, he's eager to meet more.    This kid needs plenty of exercise as he's still a puppy in a big boys body.   No felines for him and no small children please.     One of his favorite games is "chase me".   He wants to have a toy and you chase him for it.   He loves to retrieve balls in the yard as well.   He's completely house trained as well as crate trained.         5/30/2019 Through no fault of his own, Bagpipe is back in rescue again.   He's a large boy with a timid nature.  He's great with other dogs and is hoping but it's not a deal breaker - to find a home with another dog in it.    He is crate trained, takes treats very gently from you and he's fun.  He's goofy, loves to give out slobbery kisses and likes to be near his humans when they're home.     He's been meeting all sorts of new people in foster and is becomming eager to meet more = is that you?    This Lil Bruiser is Bagpipe. He and his siblings from the "musical instrument" litter were born on 9/21/18. Applications can be taken for these pups but they will not be available to go to their homes until November 16th. They are playful and adorable and will make great family dogs. You can apply to adopt Bagpipe at www.mostlymuttz.org/adoption-application/. show less

Becks is a Pale Pooch with a lot of personality. She is a 4-year-old Perky Pittie-Girl with dalmation-like spots on her ears (they're so cute!). Her ideal home would be an active one. She would love to be a running/jogging partner or a hiking companion. Some of us think she might be part FISH! She LOVES to SWIM. There are few things Becks Loves as much as playing BALL.  Becks is a very people oriented dog and she loves kids. When she finally takes a break from being her usual active self, she becomes a SUPER SNUGGLER. Lovin' on YOU and having you love on her is one of her Favorite things. Having Fun and Loving You is what Becks is all about. Becks is housebroken and crate-trained and does well with basic commands. She is smart and food motivated, so a good treat will nudge her to excel at any given command. She is amazingly comfortable in the car and excellent on a leash.  Because Becks is so into her people, a home where she is the only pet would be Ideal. She would be a Terrific Best Friend to a Single Person. That said, she does like male dogs who are laid back and who let her be the Boss. A meeting between this Beauty and any other dog in the home is a MUST. Definitely, no cats for this girl. Becks is a very unique package of Canine Character. Are YOU ready to take a run with Becks?

Eda is a 65 pound Boxer/Shepherd mix with a beautiful red fawn coat, white feet and a splash of white on her chest. She is a happy girl and her nub wags at the slightest bit of attention. She loves to be with people and will follow you around the house. Eda loves to snuggle on the couch and will roll over for belly rubs. Eda is energetic, housebroken and does well walking with an Easy Walk Harness. She knows most basic commands (come, sit, lay down, give a paw). Overall, she is a medium energy dog who occasionally gets excited and runs puppy laps around the yard. In the house, Eda loves to play fetch with her toy duckie. Eda is crate trained and is respectful of her foster home when left alone in the house. She loves car rides and is a great traveler. During a ride you might find her napping on a lap or on the back seat.  Eda is cautious with new people and they must be introduced slowly and carefully in order to gain her trust. Once she does trust you though, she will give you ALL of her love. She requires a home with older, considerate children where she can be the only pet in the house. She is not good with other dogs or cats. In a home where she is the only pet, she will love you, cuddle with you and shower you with kisses.  Eda has waited so long to find just the right person, who can love her for all the things she is - someone for whom her limitations are of no concern. Could that person be YOU? You can apply to adopt Eda at www.mostlymuttz.org/adoption-application/.  show less
