Hi, my name is Lance.  I am an approximately four-year old plott hound/ pit bull mix.  I am looking for a quiet, patient family where I will have canine at least one canine sibling. I would probably do best in a home with no small children and no cats.  I am a playful boy, but I am timid and need a family to help me face my new world with confidence. I hope to find my forever home soon! 


My story is sad, but I know my future is bright.  I ended up in a high-kill shelter in Georgia. It would loud and scary.  The rumor is that one of the kennel staffers was abusing me.  I was scheduled to cross the rainbow bridge, but Speranza heard my story and stepped up to save me.  I was so scared when I arrived that I had to be carried in and out of my kennel for a week.  I had an injured foot and a bad cherry eye.  My eye was surgically corrected and my foot healed. Over time I have gone from completely terrified and shut down to a playful dog interested in exploring.

I have spent my time at Speranza learning to trust humans and learning to relax and have fun like a dog should. So now I am looking for a family to help me build confidence in my new surroundings and to teach me basic obedience.
