“Chow Chow Chili”

Beautiful 1 year old female pocket size Chow mix.  Chili was rescued off the streets of Tijuana.  Because of her sweet temperament, a rescue group in Tijuana saved her life.  She is a little shy, but wants to know you more very quickly.  She is very sweet, inquisitive and ready for fun.  She is calm, playful and loving.  She gets along well with other dogs and people and wants to learn.  Chili would be great with a family or an individual who is active. She has been learning ‘sit’, ‘stay’ and ‘shake’, and is house trained and knows how to use a doggie door.  She has been spayed, wormed and is up-to-date with her Distemper/Parvo and Rabies shots. Medical records will be provided.   Chili weighs about 30 lbs. A home visit will be conducted to help ensure the right home for her and her new adopter. An application for adoption will be requested.

If interested, please call or text Pam Lawless (Foster Mom) at: (619) 964-1181 or e-mail at


Sassy Pit Bull Miracle foundation 2-2017“Sassy” – Spent her whole life on a heavy chain
My name is Sassy. I am a little over five years old and new to the rescue. I came to my foster home where there are seven other rescue dogs. My foster mom says I am a great dog. I love to run around the yard, snuggle and get belly rubs. I have come such a long way from the life I knew before I was rescued.
My whole life I lived outdoors, with a heavy chain that kept me from being able to go any further that my dog house. I wasn’t allowed to go indoors no matter what the weather. This is all I knew since I was 8 months old. I was used for breeding until I was 4 then I was adopted by a neighbor who grew to love me. But my life was still outside, my dog house and chain came with me. When she couldn’t care for me she posted me on Craigslist ” Free, can still have puppies”. That’s when The Miracle Foundation found me.

I’ve been with my foster mom for about 5 months. My mom says I am very smart and eager to learn new things. I have learned to walk on my leash, and I know sit, down and stay. I also am very polite and ask to go out. My mom has also taught me that a kennel is a safe warm place to sleep at night or stay when she is not home. When my family is home my preference is to be with my humans, go for walks, or just cuddle. I get belly rubs which I enjoy very much.

I have met lots of other animals here, we have three cats and our neighbors have horses which I am getting used to. As for my health, I have been to the vet, and was recently spayed and was brought up to date on all my vaccines. The vet checked me over, I was treated for fleas and a few hot spots. I am very healthy now.

I am looking to find a family I call my very own. A family that will let me love them and allow me to be the dog my foster mom says I am. She says I have a silly personality and am very curious. I love the outdoors but I am very happy to come inside and be with my family, especially when it’s cold. My mom has me on a very healthy diet which has made me lean and strong.
If you would like to meet Sassy please email The Miracle Foundation at


It’s The Pits is a 501c3 canine rescue that coordinates the fostering and adoption of dogs that haven’t yet found their permanent home. We specialize in American Staffordshire Terriers (“Am Staffs”), Staffordshire Bull Terriers (“Staffy’s”), and American Pit Bull Terriers, but will do our best to help all breeds, often by referral to other local rescues that specialize in that type of dog. We work alongside our fosters to give the dogs a temporary and loving home before they are placed into permanent homes. We rescue dogs from various shelters, evaluate them, ensure they are healthy, and then match them with the appropriate family. We take pride in matching the best dog for the individual family that contacts us. We do this by matching the activity level of the dog to the family’s needs, as well as making sure that the other pets in the home work well with the new addition to the pack. All of this is important in finding the forever home for our rescued pets.
