Meet Deuce, a one year old Male pitbull who is just a big lover boy. Deuce is 58 lbs and is Wonderful with adults, children, babies, and is good with cats and dogs. Deuce was raised in a home with other dogs and a baby that was born around the same time he was. His previous owners had a 1 year old and a three month old. Deuce was raised in a home that was demolished in a tornado in Indiana last year. His owner got word of the tornado and grabbed her young child and him and hid in the bathroom. The whole house was demolished with the exception of the bathroom where Deuce, his owner and the baby remained. Consequently, the family had to move to Illinois to live with a relative until they can return to Indiana. The relative resides in an apartment that won't allow dogs.

Deuce knows sit and stay and is potty trained. Deuce is good on a leash and does enjoy walks. He also loves going on car rides, is great in the car, and according to his previous owner liked to play with the neighbor dogs. Deuce is very affectionate and enjoys belly rubs! Deuce was owned by one family owner and has no history of any abuse. He was kept as a house dog and will make a great family pet.

If you are interested in adopting, please go to our website at www.castawaypetrescue.org and fill out an adoption application. An adoption counselor will contact you. Please bring any dogs, children, and decision makers to your appointment. Be prepared to adopt and take your new family member home that day if we have a match. Please note that adoption counselors will only know of your interest if you submit an application. They do not see emails sent to the administration email account. The adoption counselor can answer your questions when they call after receiving your application. Please remember we are an all volunteer organization.

Minimum Adoption Donation is $250 (includes deworming, microchip with free registration, age appropriate vaccinations, spay/neuter if performed by our vet, 30 days of health insurance). Any donation above the minimum is appreciated.
