Each month, the Dolly’s Dream Project sponsors two dogs available for adoption at Humane Society of the Treasure Coast. When you choose to adopt one of these dogs, you and your new furry friend will receive:
June Bug is a large, energetic gal who has been in the care of the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast since the end of May. She came in to us as a stray, so we don’t know much about her past. What we do know is that she loves to play! June Bug needs to have a meet-and-greet with any potential doggie siblings as she tends to be a bit bossy. She also has a very high prey drive; she loves to chase cats and other small animals so a home without small pets would be ideal. June Bug is around 3 years old and weighs in at 56 pounds of high energy fun! If an upbeat, fun loving gal is the pup for you – come meet her today!

Sweet Roselyn was picked up as a stray by Martin County Animal Services. She was very shy and had some severe skin issues. Here at HSTC, we’ve been able to resolve her skin conditions in addition to providing for all of her other medical care. Roselyn is now an exuberant gal who is looking for an active, fun loving home to call her own. She is definitely a lap dog and is eager to please. At only 2 years old, she is a young pup who is ready to spend the rest of her life with you!

Walk through the kennels of Humane Society of the Treasure Coast and many other larger animal shelters in Florida and around the nation and you’ll discover quite a few dogs we lovingly call “Square Heads.” Big, tall, short, small they have one thing in common – a head that looks a bit “square.” At first glance, some would call a dog like this a “Pit Bull” or a “bully breed”. But truthfully, these are simply the mixed breed dogs that are now one of the most popular and most beloved dogs in America!
Dolly’s Dream is a project to encourage the adoption of our “Square Heads” and to help counter the unfortunate stereotypes and myths that some people still believe about these dogs. Humane Society of the Treasure Coast finds homes and new families for hundreds of these dogs each year. They are adopted by a wide variety of people – single people, couples, grandparents and families with children of all ages.
"Dolly” (pictured here) was a Square Head who opened the heart of the man who adopted her and taught him how loving, sweet and gentle these dogs can be. No different than any other type of dog.
Today, in her honor, Dolly’s Dream is to give dogs like her a second chance at life and the type of home every dog deserves.
