Pocket Pitties by CharlieDog and Friends are a group of plush stuffed animals based on real Pit Bulls from the shelter system.
Each Pocket Pittie is lovingly inspected and dressed with a unique “Adopt” collar bracelet, a unique accessory that you can remove and wear yourself as a bracelet. The bracelets are made of 100% cotton Michael Miller fabric and are embroidered with the word “Adopt”. Wear one, and you’ll quickly find yourself in a conversation with a stranger about the pets you’ve both adopted and the lives you’ve saved.
Included with your purchase is a postcard of the real-life dog, and his/her story, and a Facebook card for Bruised Not Broken (who welcomes your friendship).
All Pocket Pitties are 7 inches when seated, and 9 inches from the top of their head to the bottom of their toes. They are made of super-soft velour, with embroidered features and no plastic parts. They’re machine washable, but you may want to simply spot clean them. They’re weighted with little beans, but they’re not baggy.
All plush toy Pocket Pitties also come with our “Adopt” collar bracelet,
15% of each Pocket Pittie sold is donated to Bruised Not Broken, as it continues to save “death row” pups while advocating for this most misunderstood family pet.
Beautiful Adala is based on a mystery. Back in July, 2011, this dog was in danger, posted on the Facebook pages of Bruised Not Broken and Urgent Part Two — two sites that advocate daily for at-risk pit bulls and other homeless pets in the New York City shelter system. She had hours to live as she faced the worst of all fates — a fate all too common for shelter pit bulls — and as her smiling picture could attest, she had no idea.
But someone — somewhere — rescued her, her picture was moved lovingly into the “Safe!” folders of these two Facebook pages, and the world moved on. And that’s where her story — at least on this site — ends.
If you know Adala, or know where she is, or what lucky family calls her their own, please let us know by sending us an email or posting on our page. We’d be THRILLED!
Until then, she’s an honored “Pocket Pittie” plush stuffed animal from CharlieDog and Friends, and like so many Bruised Not Broken “alumni”, she’s out there, somewhere. Safe.
