Happy tails for your Thursday…

Loki joined us in November from a crowded local shelter where he had arrived with a case of demodex mange. After getting his itchy skin issues resolved, we began the search for him forever family. We received one application from an awesome couple looking for a new furry companion and a buddy for their rescue boy. Loki’s spirited nature and dashing good looks won them over and he joined his new family last month. We can’t wait to see all the adventures he gets into. Don’t forget to keep in touch!

Congratulations, Loki! ❤️🐾

🚨 Adoption Alert!! 🚨

Barrett joined us in March of 2023 after going through a window left him with some traumatic injuries needing immediate medical attention. After getting stitched up in various spots on his legs, he began antibiotics, pain meds, and routine bandage changes every 2-3 days. It was all worth it to see Barrett happy, healthy, and trusting his caregivers. As we got to learn more about our jumbo pal, we saw that he is a very sweet boy that attaches himself to those he loves and does so with his whole heart. He’s the biggest piece of Velcro imaginable. We were looking for a loving household with room for a supersized companion, and were thrilled when we found just that. Barrett joined his new family 2 months ago and we’re sure he’s already stuck to them like glue. Wishing you the very best, big boy, but don’t forget to keep in touch!

Congratulations, Barrett! ❤️🐾

A few weeks ago, we were contacted by a Good Samaritan about a litter of puppies that was in need of rescue. She was visiting the pups daily in an effort to support the owner and ensure the puppies were getting the care they needed. We agreed to help and the sweet babies were transported to us yesterday. After getting their first vaccines and dewormer, the 6 girls and 1 boy headed off to experience the foster life. At this point, they’re pretty typical pups, but we expect to see their individual personalities shine through in no time. Although we might be biased, we think they’re just about as cute as they come. We’ll be sure to post updates as they continue to grow and blossom.

Welcome to the PLP family, Ivy, Aloe, Hoya, Pilea, Monstera, Orchid, and Philodendron! ❤️🐾

🌟 Spotlight on Adoptable Maximus! 🌟

Sweet Max is one of our super seniors who is looking for a loving home to spend his golden years. He is a mature and distinguished gentleman who is content to snooze on the couch in between accepting pets and butt rubs. He is friendly with other dogs and people of all ages, and could be formally cat tested for an approved applicant. He loves to eat, but does require careful food selection to manage his allergies. His ideal home has limited stairs and a whole lot of love. Maybe yours? 😉

Adoptable Bates is still searching for his forever fetch buddy…

At 3 years young, Bates is lively, loving, and playful. As you can see, our beautiful brindle boy loves to play ball, but can also entertain himself with a bone to chew. He is a total Velcro dog who wants nothing more than to be near his people and is a champion snuggler. Bates is food-motivated, eager to learn, and is already crate-trained and housebroken. He enjoys other dogs, so he would be happy to have a canine companion, or could be content as your one and only. He has lived with cats, but will engage, so dog-savvy cats are best. Don’t let his strong and sturdy frame fool you! He is sweet and petite at just around 45lbs. Bates is looking for a lifetime of belly rubs, and we don’t think that’s too much to ask. How about you?

Money, bones, and clothes … all a frenchie knows 🎶 …

Say hello to our adorable new additions, Biggie and Tupac! Their cuteness just might break the internet 🙃. These two boys came to us from another rescue that scooped them up when they were discarded from a mill. At 10 months old, they were considered yesterday’s inventory and needed to go. And yes, both of these kiddos are french bulldogs (siblings), but Biggie’s ears never made it up. This happens sometimes, and it’s perfectly normal. His ears decided they’d rather chill and we think it makes him extra cute.

Our new lil’ homies are just starting to settle into their foster homes, but we’ll be sure to share updates as we get to know them. They need to be fully vetted, and are currently being treated for Lyme. If you’d like to throw them a bone towards their vet care, thanks!

Welcome to the PLP fam, Biggie and Tupac! ✌🏼

If there was a competition for the best RBF, this guy would be a strong contender! He joined us last weekend from an overcrowded shelter that reached out for help. At six years old, he’s past the puppy antics phase and is more on the chill side. He did come with some icky ears and skin issues, which are being treated, along with a cold he caught at the shelter. Once he’s feeling better, he’ll be neutered and ready to start the next chapter. We don’t know much about his personality, or likes/dislikes yet, but will share updates as he settles in. His foster fam is focused on letting him decompress and slowly getting to know him.

Welcome to the PLP fam, Link!

‼️Fosters needed - Local shelters are at capacity‼️

PLP is in need of reliable foster families for dogs of all ages, sizes, energy levels, and temperaments, including foster homes that have no resident pets. Each week we are overwhelmed with requests to help dogs in need, both from overcrowded shelters and owners who can no longer care for their dog. In order to help any dog, we need a suitable match in a foster family willing to open their hearts and home to a furry friend in need.

What does fostering for PLP involve, you ask? We have a great foster program and provide everything our foster dogs need, including high quality food, crates, collars/leashes, toys, training, and of course all veterinary care. Foster families simply provide their foster dog with daily care, exercise, love, and socialization. In addition, foster families help us get to know each dog's likes and dislikes to determine what their ideal forever family would be.

If you are interested in fostering, there is a dog out there who needs you. Our foster application can be found on our website at www.pittieslovepeace.com. Fostering truly saves lives, so if you live in central PA, please consider joining the PLP family!

Last week, Stew had a neurology consult, MRI, and spinal tap, to try to get to the bottom of his seizures. The MRI was completely normal, and yesterday his CSF (cerebralspinal fluid) analysis also returned normal.

It was determined that Stew had a severe case of idiopathic epilepsy or a possible genetic abnormality. The latter is suspected because when Stew was not seizing (and before he started meds) he was just existing, rather than participating, in life. He didn’t play, and found no enjoyment in meals, treats, walks, or any of the things dogs like to do. While genetic testing is available, the results would simply give us information without being able to fix it. Stew was already on the highest possible safe dose of two seizure meds, phenobarbital and Keppra, yet he was still having violent seizures daily.

Yesterday, the PLP BOD made the difficult decision to help Stew cross the 🌈 bridge. His quality of life was poor and eventually the seizures would make the decision for us. We chose to let him go peacefully and with dignity. His foster momma was with him, giving him all the love and pets, until the very end. Please send love and light her way. 💔

Thank you to everyone who supported and rooted for Stew.

Happy tails for your Tuesday…

Gelato, Sherbet, and Sundae joined us in November as transfers from a crowded shelter. They joined individual foster homes, but were pretty clearly littermates when each of their fosters described their personalities almost identically. We started looking for 3 special families to welcome them into their homes and show them all the best things in life. These blue babies had a good bit of interest, but we could only choose 3 lucky households. The icy pups joined their forever homes about 3 weeks ago and are settling in. Gelato and Sherbet even each have new siblings that were PLP grads. 🙂 We are so happy for them and can’t wait to hear about all of their adventures. Live your best lives, but don’t forget to keep in touch!

Congratulations, Gelato, Sherbet, & Sundae! ❤️🐾

Adoptable Ava is looking for her perfect forever family where everyday will be a reason to celebrate! 🥰

This 5 month old darling is blanketed in the most adorable black spots. She is friendly, sweet, and adores people of all ages. She enjoys other dogs, so her ideal home will have at least one other dog for her to play with and lay with. That’s right, this little lady is an absolutely cuddle bug with humans and doggy friends alike. In fact, she will make herself comfortable in any position so she can be closer to them. She is crate-trained and housebroken. We have not seen her interact with cats, but we could formally test her for an approved applicant. Ava is looking for an active family that will include her in all of life’s adventures. Could that be you?
