Canine Good Citizen & Natl Pit Bull Awareness Day

Started in 1989, the Canine Good Citizen Program is designed to reward dogs who have good manners at home and in the community. The Canine Good Citizen Program is a two-part program that stresses responsible pet ownership for owners and basic good manners for dogs. All dogs who pass the 10-step CGC test may receive a certificate from the American Kennel Club.

Ring Dog Rescue is working to promote responsible pet ownersip and basic good manners for dogs in Richmond and the surrounding communities by offering Canine Good Citizen Testing on Sat. Oct. 22, 2011 at the Chesterfield County Fairgrounds for $25 ($10 for approved “foster” dogs). Ring Dog Rescue is doing this in celebration of National Pit bull Awareness Day which was established as a day to educate and foster positive communications and experiences in the communities in which we and our dogs live. It is a day to focus on these incredible dogs and their devoted, responsible owners. A day to change perceptions and stereotypes as well as challenge all dogs owners to be responsible owners! read more

Pints for Pits – Thursday, June 23rd @ Longshots in Chesapeake

Good Morning and Happy Friday!!!

As many of you already know, I am very passionate about animals; more specifically, Pit Bulls!  Unfortunately, because of a select few, Pit Bulls get an undeserved bad rap.  Their courage, devotion, strength and loyalty make them as easy target for those who choose to use that for their own personal gain. 

Ring Dog Rescue is a local, non-profit organization devoted to making life better for Pit Bulls and other “Bullies” (dogs of bulldog lineage) though education, rescue, placement in foster homes, training and finding a “furever” home!  I’ve been a friend, supporter and foster home for Ring Dog Rescue for 4+ years now and have 4 recues of my own! Please join us in support of Rind Dog Rescue, this Thursday, June 23rd, 7pm at Longshots in Chesapeake for cheap beer, raffles and a good time! read more
