Welcome Gia to the Sweet Bark family!

Meet Gia! We've been working to help Gia since September when we found out about her. She ended up at the shelter when her previous owner could no longer care for her. After spending 3 months in a shelter we finally got her out! We're so happy to officially be welcoming Gia in as part of the Sweet Bark family!

And what a sweetheart she is! She's good with dogs, cats and kids! She good in the car, housebroken and knows basic commands. Gia is about 7yrs old and has been bred a lot in her life time, but that's in the past and what matters is how special this girl is! The family that opens their heart and home to her will be very lucky and rewarded with a endless love and kisses (she sneaks them in when you're least expecting it!).

Our foster home for Gia fell through and we do need to find her a foster ASAP! If you can help please let us know!

If you're interested in Gia please contact us at

December is ADOPTION month! Or so it seems...

We've had an amazing month and it isn't even over! 3 adoption in one weekend and then another this past week! We're so happy that 4 of our amazing dogs found wonderful homes this month! We're truly blessed and thankful to the families that opened their homes and hearts! <3

Meet Eli!

Eli is a love sponge! He is very young, around one year old. He is a Spaniel or Coon hound/Pit mix with the most gorgeous green eyes. He plays with all dogs and is just complete joy. Eli is fostering in Upstate NY, but if you're in Pa we can make arrangements for you to meet him as well.

He knows sit and drop it (most of the time). His foster Mom is working with him on perfecting those and starting more commands. He's good with the kids! Although we wouldn't recommend him to a home that has small children unless the kids are used to a rough and tumble big dog. He can be a bit clumsy. He falls off of furniture, down and up stairs and slides on the hardwood floors. His huge paws seem to get in his way. He's such a goofy boy!

If you're intested or would like more info please contact us at

Meet the Sweet Bark Dogs!

Meet Chopper!

This little guy was found eating out of a garbage can in North Philly. Local residents said he's been wandering the streets for a few weeks. Luckily a good samaritan, Sharon, picked him up and took him home with her. But she didn't realize how difficult it would be to get him into a rescue or foster home.

We had someone interested in fostering him, but it didn't work out. So now he's looking for a foster or furever home! He's a great little guy, a little shy and learning the basic of being a house dog, but overall a BIG SWEETHEART!! Great with other dogs, cats, small animals and kids!!!

He's been neutered, is UTD on vaccines and dewormed! And got a clean bill of health from the vet. He's estimated to be about a year old so he's definitely a pocket Pittie!!!

If you're interested in fostering or adopting Chopper please contact Jen at


You can now find us on Adopt a pet!!

Meet Daisy!

Daisy was found by a good samaritan wandering a country road covered in wounds and very underweight. We will never know Daisy's full story, but what we do know is that she's appoximately 3-4 years old, deaf, has had a litter of puppies and appears to have been used as a bait dog. Daisy still needs time to heal and learn to trust people but with a little more time and positive reinforcement she'll be ready to start her new life very soon! In just a short time Daisy has really come around and she's already at a healthy weight and is starting to come out of her shell. She's an absolutely beautiful girl and has one brown eye and one blue eye. She's great with other dogs and kids! And just loves to get her belly rubbed!! She's UTD on her rabies vaccine, de-wormed and scheduled for her spay, dental, heartworm/lyme test and mircochip June 1st at the Trucksville Dog and Cat Hospital.

If you want to know more about Daisy please contact Sweet Bark Pit Bull Rescue at or visit our website at
If you'd like to donate to her surgery we would greatly appreciate it! Every dollar helps! Thanks.
