Welcome

Ring Dog Rescue is a rescue group dedicated to “Pit Bull type dogs”, which are defined as any dog having bulldog lineage. We are a 501 (c)3 nonprofit organization and are currently listing adoptable pit bulls from, not only Ring Dog Rescue, but our other rescue friends and those who have opened their door to an orphaned pit bull in private rescue.

We at Ring Dog Rescue all own a pit bull type dog and would like to answer all your questions and help guide you to a happy life for you and your companion, as well as to aid you in finding the perfect one for you.

If you’re considering or want to find a new home your pit bull type dog, read this first.
