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:
Blaze came to the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast when his elderly owner was no longer physically able to care for him any longer. According to his previous owner he is already house-trained and knows some basic commands. He enjoys playing with toys and roughhousing with other dogs. He might make an excellent jogging or running buddy as he loves to run! Blaze seems to adore people of all ages but he has not lived around any children or cats. An extra bonus? Blaze enjoys bath time!
Blaze is a handsome 5 year old American Pit Bull Terrier mix male who is heartworm positive. Don’t let that scare you though – HSTC covers the cost of his heartworm treatment! Plus, as a Dolly’s Dream dog, his adoption fee is waived and he comes with a bunch of goodies including a crate, bed, no-pull harness, and so much more!

Kazoo here, I came to the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast back in mid-November as a stay so they don't know much about me. What they do know is that I am young (just over 1 year old), energetic, and I like to chase small animals like squirrels and cats. I'd really like to learn some manners and have an active family to call my own. I tend to knock over smaller children, so I might do best in a home with older children.

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.
