Meet the Dolly's Dream Dogs


Dolly's Dream Logo


Nena is an adorable year and half old American Pit Bull Terrier Mix who has been in the care of the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast since July 2017! During her stay with us she has received treatment for heartworms and is now heartworm negative. Nena loves receiving tummy rubs and will stop, drop, and roll-over immediately if there is even a chance at receiving tummy rubs. She is a sweet girl, loves to cuddle, and very playful. She has good house manners that need a little bit of work since she has been here at the shelter so long. She previously lived with other dogs, but can be a bit picky about her dog friends. In doggie play groups she is absolutely adorable playing tag and chase with the other dogs. She is currently doing well in a foster home that other dogs as well. Nena also adores people of all ages and would most likely do well in a home with young children. Give this sweet gal a chance to wiggle her way into your heart!

About the Program

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.

How it Started

Picture of Dollydolly"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.
