Peyton, Honey & Red

These three are quite the pack. Peyton is the big brother, a handsome white and gray boy who’s almost eight. Honey is next, about seven now, named for her unusual liver and white coloring. Red is the six-year-old baby, and you guessed it – a red-nosed pit mix! They are fantastic breed ambassadors who are very well-behaved and so loving.

Peyton and Red LOVE to play with their toys outside, while Honey likes to do her zoomies inside. Honey was rescued as a very shy and nervous girl, and it is a testament to her parents how far she has come. Because of all their hard work, she came out of her shell in a matter of minutes for me, and I was rewarded with kisses and lots of handshakes. Even the camera got a few kisses!

My favorite thing about Peyton are his ears, which are like their own entity – he can probably hear transmissions in space! Oh, and his chocolate brown eyes…bring me someone who doesn’t like pits and he will melt them with those eyes in a matter of minutes.

Red was the most difficult to photograph, only because he wanted to be in your lap or right up against you all the time – and I didn’t have a lens wide enough to accommodate that! He is a playful, goofy boy who is always on the move.

If you’ve ever visited a shelter in Georgia, you know how many pits are in need of homes. In addition to rescuing these three and giving them an amazing forever home, this family gives freely of their time and resources to through fostering and funding so that even more can find homes. I admire them so much and I know there are so many dogs who owe them their lives!
