My name is Griffin! I am an approximately 7.5 year-old male pit bull mix. I am friendly with female dogs and children over 8 years old, but I am looking for a home without cats.  I am a strong, happy, playful boy that would love an active home. I have been at Speranza since winter of 2015. I would love to find a family of my own!


They call me the Miracle Dog, because when Janine committed to saving me from a high kill shelter in Georgia I had almost no use of my back legs.  They thought I might be paralyzed for life.  With love, nutrition and proper veterinary care (but no surgery) I gained full use of my legs again!  Now I am one of the strongest dogs at the rescue and have even gone on a field trip for a run at the local park.

Check out my report card!

 know how to sit and I am very food motivated.  Because I am so strong, I do tend to pull while on leash. I would love to do obedience training with you to correct my pulling.  I keep my kennel very clean and love to play with plush toys. I do not mind being handled while eating.
