Shorty Rossi and Little Darling of Pin Up For Pit Bulls honored us with a visit to our shelter to see our Pit Bulls on Saturday…..they were in town to do “Roxys Gala” and decided a visit to the shelter was in order….Hercules walked proud and visited the dogs in a few of the kennels, and then we all got together for a photo shoot in the lobby!!! Poor Shorty and Little Darling probably couldn’t see much when they left, but they were very gracious and enjoyed meeting all the dogs, especially PBA Austin and PBA Blossom!!! We hope they can stop by the next time they are in Tampa!!!
Here are a few pix of our “All Stars”
