Each month in 2015, we will be celebrating the pit bull! MHS adopts out hundreds of pit bulls a year and love to show people how great dogs of this breed type can be. We will be featuring a different “famous” pit bull from history each month.


“Bud” the pit bull was the first dog to travel across America in a car – in fact he was part of the first journey via car across the country ever.

His partners were Dr. Horatio Nelson Jackson and mechanic Sewell Crocker, but Bud, rocking “goggles” along the way, received more attention than they did from the media.

Bud’s goggles are currently on display in the Smithsonian Institute.

Rose, Angus and Clyde are just some of the pit bull type dogs waiting for their forever homes at MHS. Adopt a pit bull of your own today!
