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:
Cody is the newest HSTC Dolly’s Dream Dog! Cody is a hyper but sweet boy who does very well with adults of all ages. He does seem to lack the knowledge of how to act around children and as such is not recommended to live in a home with any young children. Prior to mid-January, Cody was an “outside dog” and was never allowed inside. As such, he is not house trained and does not have any house manners. Cody is very high-energy and can sometimes be a bit mouthy when he gets overly excited. At a little over 2 years old, there is still plenty of time to teach Cody how to behave in a loving home environment. Part of being a Dolly’s Dream Dog means that Cody and his adopter receive a free 6 week training class here at HSTC! He is a food and toy motivated pup, so with a little bit of attention, Cody should be relatively easy to train. Cody has participated in a few play dates while in our care; he prefers to play chase with the other dogs and is friendly. He also enjoys wandering around the yard sniffing everything he can. Cody would prefer a home with no small pets (small dogs, cats, bunnies) as he thinks they are wonderful squeaky toys.

I'm Peanut and I came to the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast with my BFF Mossey when our owner passed away and the friend who took us could no longer care for us. Mossey has been adopted, but I am still waiting for my perfect forever home. I am a sweet gal with excellent house manners. I am rarely under foot and I don’t get on the furniture. I am housetrained and I know several basic commands like “sit” and “stay”. I'm a bit nervous around young children; I really don't care for sudden or erratic movements. I have never lived around cats and I can be a bit picky about my dog friends. I think I should have a meet-and-greet with any potential doggie siblings. I am a young senior pet at only 9 years old – so I still have plenty of love to give you. I’m ready to be your perfect pup; are you my perfect person?

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.
