Adoption status

This ebony beauty was originally brought to us by one of the local police departments in the New Orleans area.   With looks to die for, we were shocked when no one ever came looking for her.  So we handled all of her medical needs and prepared her for adoption.

But in the late Spring of 2018, our worst nightmare came true.  With having a TV show, we always worry about people wanting our dogs for the wrong reasons, for example, a “trophy” or for “bragging rights”.  And believe it or not, our dogs become celebrities themselves and people have been known to obsess over them.   So it was late April of 2018 when a Pit Bull rescue group that we had been helping, DOGNAPPED Tituba and four of our other dogs.   It took us months of searching the country but thanks to a dedicated police department and the dog rescue community who kept their eyes open, all of our dogs were finally rounded up and returned to us.

But this all came with a price for the dogs and for VRC as well.  It ended up costing us $125,000 in legal fees but we were finally able to get the DOGNAPPERS arrested and charged and they are currently awaiting trial.  And yes, all of the dogs suffered emotionally and some physically but like the true Pit Bulls that they are….they are all so resilient!

But Tituba and her friends are now finally able to get a home of their own!

Tituba is an amazing dog.  Despite being through Hell and back, she is super outgoing but at times can have a little apprehension over situations that she encounters so she will need a human companion that can make her feel confident again.

She is crate trained but does truly love to snuggle up on YOUR bed with YOU.  She is also technically dog- friendly but…can be obnoxious with other dogs to the point that she irritates them.  Although she wouldn’t mind living in a home with another dog, I’m not so sure your dog would like it…hahaha.

And there is no doubt that she is a looker.  But more importantly….she is looking for someone to finally give her a happy ending and a place to call home.
