Squiggy was being held as live evidence in a cruelty case involving possible dog-fighting. At Dekalb County Animal Control, his name was Fisher. He had a rescue commitment that fell through so we pulled him the day after Christmas in 2013 and named him Squiggy. Squiggy was heartworm positive, but he has undergone treatment and is now heartworm free.
Squiggy is little guy, a pocket-pit, weighing in at only 31 lbs. His small frame is packed full of personality! He loves to zoom around the yard and he is fast! His tongue hangs out the side of his mouth most times, especially when he licks his lips, so we think he may have some nerve damage, but it does not effect him in any way. He is a perpetually happy, healthy boy. He loves human affection and loves giving kisses. He does well with other dogs. We have also found that Squiggy is nice and gentle with cats! His best doggie-friend was adopted and he is still looking for a loving home.

Tyson is an adorable Black Lab, Pit mix puppy who was confiscated in a cruelty case and taken in to animal control in July 2014. Just a baby, he was released to FTTF after he ended up with a bad case of kennel cough. After we treated his respiratory infection, our vet discovered a heart murmur. We found out that Tyson has a congenital heart disorder called Valvular Pulmonic Stenosis. This disease causes a narrowing of the pulmonic valve in his heart, leading to elevated pressure on the right side of his heart. He had open heart surgery to improve his heart function and although he is not fully cured, it did improve the function of his heart. Tyson has to take beta blocking medication twice a day for the rest of his life. His medication is relatively inexpensive and he has no problem taking it.
Tyson is a confident, outgoing boy who loves to play. He loves people and is happy to great anyone with his puppy like enthusiasm. He is housebroken and crate trained. Although he has a heart disorder, you would NEVER know it upon meeting him as he has zero outward signs of a heart condition. He has no physical or activity restrictions so he is happy to play with other dogs or go for walks and adventures with his people!
Tyson has lived with another large male Pit and a female Pit Mix and he does great with them. He can often be found playing with them or snuggled up with them in a pile. His favorite toy is anything with a squeaker, but above all, he loves treats! A Kong filled with some yummy peanut butter is sure to keep him busy for a while. Tyson is also very smart, especially when treats are involved. He knows sit, down, wait, and come. He has yet to turn down any food given to him, although sweet potato chews, ice, and peanut butter seem to be his favorites. Tyson would likely be find with children, but he does like to jump up when excited. He has never been around cats so we are unsure of how he would be with a kitty, although we can test him if need be.
Update January 2016 â¦ FTTF oversees Tysons care at GVS and UGA for his heart issue. He will be having another Echocardiogram soon to check on the status of his heart.
