FB_IMG_1452784163655PAULIE was adopted and returned due to no fault of his own. His adopter had to move and sadly could not bring him. Paulie was one on the last dogs to make it out alive from Safe Haven and we were happy to give him the second chance at a better life. Now Paulie is looking for a new home. Paulie is a 3 year old neutered male that is microchipped and utd on his vaccines. He’s dog friendly and doesn’t seem to mind cats.



ELSA- Everyone meet PBP’s newest princess Elsa! She was found running as a stray in the city of Wilmington over a week ago. It was known that this sweetie pie was dumped and was a stray for quite some time. She was being fed scraps from people in the area. Lucky for her, angels stepped in ( who are now her foster parents) and were able to catch her. We could not resist that sweet face and bubbly personality. We got her vaccinated and she will be spayed soon. Other then the multiple old wounds that have already healed she has a clean bill of health. She is dog friendly and loves everyone she meets. She is already crate trained and potty trained. She has been around kids and loves them. We really don’t know how anyone could of dumped her but we will make sure she gets the life she so desperately deserves! Hit like if you think she is adorable!____________________________________________

  2. Lisa Mueller says:

    I am interested in Victory.
    I also just saw Snoopy.
    I have downloaded an application and will forward once completed.
    I have male mixed breed 5 1/2 year old four legged Son, Buster.
    We have had problems with “meets” with older dogs and being in unfamiliar places.
    My Vet’s office said to consider a pup vs young adult or adult. So, here We are.
    Buster gets the best of the best in food ( has grain issues/ allergies) Love, Care ( has doggy insur.) and has a great grassy, fenced yard to boot!
    We would Love to give another Good Dog a forever Home!

    I am very interested in Max. I have a lot of experience with pitbulls. I had pitbulls, american bulldogs and english mastiffs growing up. However, I was wondering if he gets along with cats? How would the adoption process work if I lived in PA, in Atglen not to far from you…?

    How much does Max weigh?

    • shannonpbpde says:

      Hi Eric, Max is about 70 lbs at his last vet visit, but needs to slim down to about 60 lbs. We are happy to report he is meeting an approved adopter this weekend to see if they are a perfect match.

We like to place our pups in the home on a foster basis 1st to ensure it’s the perfect fit prior to completing the adoption.

    Hi, my name is Lori. We were the family with the 5 kids that were talking to you about adopting Santino. I was looking at the pictures on here and I am also interested in Cece. I just need to decide between the 2. Please let me know the different personalities between them. I also didn’t see any phone numbers to contact unless I am just missing it. Please let me know. I was trying to post the pic that we took but I think you guys took one on a cell phone anyway.

  19. Hi my name is Cindy and my neighbor and I have been taking care of this young pit bull but it is not possible to take care of her anymore. She was staying at my neighbor’s house to have her puppies but the owner never came back to pick her up and it’s been a year now. My neighbor already has 5 dogs and I have one, I make sure she has food and a bed to sleep in. Nobody seem’s to what to take care of her so I got her a rabies shot and a booster, she is such a loving dog ” she needs to get to know you first” and after that she will melt in you hands. Since this jerk is never coming to pick up his dog I would love to see her go to a home where she will get all the attention that she needs. I love her very much but my husband will not let me have another animal since we lost 3 already. Her name is Savannah and what a cutie she is, please please please help. Thank You

    • shannonpbpde says:

      Hello Cindy,

      We are very sorry to hear this situation. Thanks so much to you and your neighbor for caring for this sweet girl. PBP of DE is a small, 100% foster/volunteer based organization that cares for approximately 10-12 pups at a time. Because of the overwhelming # of owner surrender requests and high-kill shelter pleas we receive every day, we are unfortunately not able to take in every pup.

      While every animal deserves a chance, the sad reality is *approximately 9,000 dogs and cats die in shelters in the United States, simply because they have no place to call home. That’s more than 4 million unnecessary deaths a year. A true, present-day tragedy. This pup is lucky to have 2 people that care, while we make those death row, shelter pups our 1st priority because they have no one to speak for them. Many of them have been abandoned and have never known the love and care of being in a safe home. Based on these statistics we would hope your neighbor would reconsider and can make the necessary adjustments to keep her in a loving home. If you truly feel you need to find this pup a new home, PBP of DE strongly recommends Pit Bull Rescue Central for assistance and advice on how to safely find a new home on your own: We REALLY need to public to help in these efforts to help save more pups lives.

      If after you have exhausted all options and you still need our help, please have your neighbor email pictures and details about your pup (age, sex, temperament, dog/cat friendly, etc.) to our Owner Surrender Coordinator, Ashley, at Due to the high-volume of requests we receive, there is a waiting list.

      Other no kill rescues in the area are Faithful Friends Animal Society (, CompAnimals Pet Rescue (, Delaware SPCA –Georgetown & Stanton (, and the Delaware Humane Association ( We would also recommend The Pet Project, email, and/or review their website at for additional resources.

      ~All the Best, Shannon~

Currently we have a 7 month old american bully who loves to play and rough house, we also have a 3 month old baby, and a 6 year old cat. We are looking for a dog who is possibly already house broken and over the age of 1. If you could email us any dogs you have that may work for our family to look at and possibly adopt we would greatly appreciate it. Thank you

  36. Leslie Rorke says:

    • shannonpbpde says:

      Hi Leslie, if you would like to become a foster you would want to contact rescues in your area. We keep our fosters within a 45 minute radius.

  37. Kristina Madron says:

    I am trying to find out how much it would cost total to adopt Sturgis. I would love to have him!

    • shannonpbpde says:

      Hi Kristina, our adoption fee is $300 for puppies 6 months and younger. This which includes spay/neuter, rabies vaccination, distemper vaccination, microchipping, heartworm testing, starting on a monthly heartworm & flea/tick preventative and deworming. Please email us at for more on the adoption process.

  38. Joshua and Camille Nichols says:

    Can Maryland residents adopt from your facility? And would someone contact me via email with information pertaining to this? I have an overwhelming passion for my bully buddies my family and I volunteer constantly with the Wicomico county humane society and I’ve been with them for 6-7 years as a volunteer I spend all of my time there investing my heart into the pitties. My ultimate dream is to start a rescue of my own. Am staff and pits get the worst rap, and it kills me that they “destroy” or “put to sleep” when they don’t find an adoptee for them. Every dog has a perfect human out there for them.

    • shannonpbpde says:

      Hi Joshua and Camille we do adopt to the tri-state area but it looks like you are about 2 hours away and with PBP being a small rescue with limited resources for home visits and follow-ups this would probably be too far. I would think in the time you’ve been with Wicomico County Humane there have been an overwhelming amount of pitties to choose from.

  39. sean says:

    Is Bubba Gump still available for adoption. My wife and I have a 2 year old blue pit named bruizer and we would love to have him meet Bubba Gump as a potential brother. Please let me know.

  40. Jenn Stunkard says:

    Could I have info on Neveah’s puppy that’s available for adoption please?

  41. Melissa says:

    I’m very interested in Paulie but can’t seem to access a form of the application that will allow me to fill it out.
