We’d like to introduce you to Stacie! At DDR we like to say that if Stacie were a car, she would be a Ferrari. Lots of people can drive a car, but only a few can handle the power and speed of a Ferrari!

We know that there are a lot of Pit bulls out there to adopt, but we believe Stacie is special. She would fall into the elite 10% of dogs who need a specific kind of owner, the kind of person who will give her structure and act 1 8.52.05 AMintentionally because what is asked of her, she will deliver. Stacie is so smart, she will teach you and train you to be a more experienced dog owner! With her classic good looks, she is the type of dog who connects very deeply with her person and wants to work hard for them. She has completed basic obedience classes and is well mannered, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, and spayed. Though only 1 year old and 45 lbs and a smallish Staffordshire Terrier/Pit mix, she is huge amounts of love to give. Stacie likes other dogs, already knows how to walk well on leash, and is house-trained. Whether you live in an apartment or have a big back yard, she would do well and is more than ready for her forever home.

As DDR the rescue group, we’re all about second chances. We believe animals deserve a second chance, and we stand by each of our rescue dogs. They’re all worthy souls living up to their potentials, some getting there easier and quicker than others.

2And yet there are a few dogs that stand out because they have unique needs, because they’ve been with us so long, or because they’ve been waiting waiting waiting for a family to call their own. Stacie’s story is the second of our four-part series called 1st Picks for 2nd Chances. We sincerely hope you will read these tales, share them widely, and open your hearts. Who knows – maybe even consider opening your home if you’re the right fit! Whoever adopts one of these dogs will get free boarding at the DDR kennel whenever traveling, as well as a lifetime of support, spanning from dog training to assistance with medical care.
