Adopt Zealand a Pit Bull Dog at Stray Rescue St Louis

One look at this beautiful boy and my heart melted.  Just look at those awesome ears!  How can you resist one ear up and one ear down?  Zealand is a handsome boy and a favorite of the Stray Rescue of St Louis animal shelter staff and volunteers.

And it's not all his good looks.  Zealand came to Stray Rescue scared and confused.  He quickly learned that people are good and once he decides he like you, he is yours forever.  

Zealand is a male Pit Bull Terrier mix.  He's about 4 years old and weighs 66 pounds.

Recently Zealand got to go on a five mile hike with some of his shelter buddies.  On the way to the hiking site, he was an excellent car rider who enjoyed watching everything out the window.  Zealand was very excited to get started on the trails, but willingly slowed down on command.  During the hike he was not reactive to other dogs or people, he just wanted to smell as much as he could.  

One of Zealand's human friends describes him as awesome and wonderful, as well as handsome, of course.

Surely you could use some good looking awesomeness in your life.  Contact Stray Rescue at 314-771-6121, then come meet Zealand and find out just why everyone there loves this dog.  Zealand is at their Pine Street animal shelter.

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.

We are participating in the Tuesday's Tails blog hop hosted by Dogs N Pawz and Talking Dogs.  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.
