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:
Bullwinkle is a big, fun loving goofball. He is around 1.5 years and has been in the care of HSTC since mid-July. He is partially house trained, crate trained, and knows a few basic commands. A few of his favorite activities are going for car rides, digging in the dirt, and learning new things. Bullwinkle has lived with other dogs and cats in the past and was friendly and playful with both. He has a very high energy level and is looking for an active home to call his own.
Bullwinkle 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!

Dixie is a demur lady with a playful streak. She is about 6 years old and looking for a home where she can be the princess. She has lived with other dogs in the past; while everyone got along okay Dixie did not like to share her food, treats, or toys with the other dogs. She is house trained and knows several basic commands. Her previous owners described her as extremely loving and HSTC staff and volunteers have found her to be incredibly sweet.

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.
