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:
Chance came to HSTC towards the end of August when his previous owner was unable to take him home from the pet sitter. The pet sitter was unable to keep Chance as they had an older, grumpy Chihuahua who bullied Chance relentlessly. Chance never had any issues with the other dog and was always trying to be very friendly. Chance also lived with a 2 year old human who he was very friendly and playful with. Chance is crate trained, knows several basic commands, loves toys, and is very high energy.
Chance is one of HSTC’s newest Dolly’s Dream Dogs! This means his adoption fee has been sponsored AND he comes with a bunch of extra goodies to help him adjust to his new home. Some of these bonus goodies include a crate and a FREE 6 week training class!

Koda is a very handsome 3 year old American Staffordshire Terrier Hound Mix who has been in HSTC care since late July making him currently one of our longest resident dogs. Koda is very intelligent; he knows several basic commands and is both house and crate trained. He is an extremely boisterous dog who needs many outlets for his high, playful energy. He does well with children and has lived with cats in the past. Koda is very dog selective, so he will need to meet with any potential doggie siblings. His favorite activities are car rides and playing with a variety of toys.

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.
