Adopt Dig Dug a PitBull Terrier Mix at Stray Rescue St Louis

This adorable charmer is Dig Dug.  He's a male PitBull Terrier mixed breed dog.  Medium in size at 45 pounds, he's 5 to 6 years old.  Here's what the staff and volunteers at Stray Rescue St Louis have to say about him:

Dig Dug came by his name the old-fashioned way - he earned it.  He was found on the end of a chain, but he had dug a hole so deep and crawled into it so far that no part of him was visible.  The only thing his rescuers could see was a chain going into the hole.  After they extracted him from his hiding spot, they found a bad wound on his head that was caked with dirt.  Dig Dug is now very happy to be safe and well at Stray Rescue where he doesn't have to hide or be attached to a chain.

Dig Dug is a big tail wagger.  He is a non-discriminatory wagger:  he gets all excited and wiggly to see anyone walk by his door.  He also craves love and affection and would like nothing better than to curl up in your lap and be petted.

Recently Dig Dug got to go on a five mile hike with his shelter buddies.  He loved the car ride to the hiking site, looking out the window and watching the world go by while occasionally giving his driver a quick kiss.  On the trail he never pulled, but kept pace with the other dogs and looked back to his human hiking partner for reassurance.  Dig Dug had an amazing hike.
Dig Dug is also quite a soccer player, as you can see from his adoption video below.  You'll also notice how nicely he walks on a leash and how enthusiastic he is to take a walk.   

Check out Dig Dug's video and then give Valerie at Stray Rescue St Louis a call 314-771-6121   Dig Dug is currently in their Pine Street Shelter in St Louis, Missouri.


Founded by Randy Grim, Stray Rescue of St Louis sole purpose is to rescue stray animals in need of medical attention, restore them to health, and place them in loving adoptive homes.  Virtually all of the pets they save have been abused and neglected.  Stray Rescue is a no-kill organization that believes rescued animals often make the best pets.  Given a second lease on life and in return for a little affection and attention, these remarkable animals reward their new owners with a love and loyalty unmatched anywhere.

On Tuesday we'll be participating in the Tuesday's Tails blog hop hosted by Dogs N Pawz.  This is the blog hop that features shelter pets.  Find a pet at your local animal shelter or rescue and join us!  Please help spread the word about these beautiful animals via social media and let's find them forever homes!

Talking Dogs is the official blog of For Love of a Dog Jewelry.
