Hi my Name is


I've Been Here Since: 2005-05-18
DOB: November 1st, 2004
Gender: Male

My Behavior:

Like his name, he has the muscles of one of the mightest animals of the African plane. When he trots across the yard, you can feel the Earth shudder.  But then you look at this silly crossed eyed face and you just have to laugh. Rhino is two French fries short of a Happy Meal but with looks like his, who cares?  He loves his baby pool and though he's too thick to go for long walks. If you're looking to take a walk on the wild side, then sponsoring this beast is for you!

    I think this guy is just so adorable haha. I plan on sponsoring him here shortly :) I love this rescue and I love APBT’s. I will help in any way that I can for these amazing dogs!

    I love this guy, I thought I had the only pitbull with cross eyes. Sativa has a crush on him now and she’s insisting that I sponsor him since Cassanova passed away. Makes you wonder if two cross eyed pits would have cross eyed puppies!

    I sponsored this beautiful guy and I don’t care that he’s a few fries short. Most of the time I feel that way too.

  4. Becky on September 13th, 2011 1:36 pm

    Thank you, we love Rhino!

    Rhino is a awsome looking dog and if you know pits aren’t they all a couple of fries short.
    Other than having crossed eyes is there some reason he’s not up for adoption I would love to have him.

    Rhino is adorable and I am so happy to sponsor him. I have never seen a cross eyed dog before and I just fell in love with him the minute I saw him! What VRC does is so amazing, I look forward to watching the show every week, Keep up the great work. I am Sending my love from Australia to Rhino xx

  10. Andrea on December 5th, 2011 5:51 pm

    i would love to see some pictures of rhino if at all possible. i saw him once on an episode of pitbulls and parolees and i just fell in love with him. haven’t seen him since then and i wanted to show my younger cousin what he looks like.

  11. lauri alvelo on December 10th, 2011 11:12 pm

    Oh my gosh!! Rhino is gorgeous!! I have a male blue who is short and stocky as well but wow, I love how broad Rhinos upper body is! I’m in love <333. I wish I could own a million pitbulls, my male is aggresive towards pretty much any male animal. So I only have him and my female and of course they're adorable puppies they just had! A litter of 13!! I want to keep them all! :)

  12. kristi Kelley on December 13th, 2011 9:03 pm

    He is so beautiful. He seems like a great dog by his description. Why is he unadoptable? Just curious.

  13. Carolyn G on December 17th, 2011 11:18 am

    Unfortunately I can’t have a dog, yet but when I can properly care for a dog, I’m coming to you for help. For now I will begin sponsoring one of these dolls starting next month (when I begin a new job). I will be making trips to New Orleans to meet my foster baby.

  14. Carolyn G on December 17th, 2011 11:19 am

    Unfortunately I can’t have a dog, yet but when I can properly care one, I’m coming to you for help. I hope your able to arrange out of state adoptions. For now I will begin sponsoring one of these dolls starting next month (when I begin a new job). I will be making trips to New Orleans to meet my foster baby.

  15. kourtni on December 19th, 2011 7:12 pm

    I love this dog is there a reason hes not up for adoption

  16. Harold Meurisse on December 25th, 2011 7:47 am

    With a serious comitment of 100.00 dollars a month could I get some great pics and a little about him and how he’s doing from time to time? I live with my wonderful wife and 3 grandchildren in Hot springs Arkansas We watch all the shows and would really like to see more of Rhino. He just has that sad look to him like he’s lost . Wish we could have him but even if we could ,We have 2 females named Sasha,and Scarlett,and a male named Pheonix. Well that’s all for now looking forward to your response have a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year and above all keep up the good work The Meurisse Family.

    I fell in love with Rhino ever since the first episode with him aired on Animal Planet. I don’t think he’s intimidating at all. I would’ve applied to adopt him right then and there if I a) didn’t live outside of California, and b) didn’t live in a county that still bans pitbulls (dumbest. law. ever.). But I still looooooove hiiiiiiiim <3333333

  18. Georgette Delisle Cocoa, Florida on January 7th, 2012 6:00 pm

    Is there any other way to send money to sponsor a dog…you use Pay Pal and I’ve had very bad experiences with that company and prefer not to go that route. Magnificient looking dog!! I’ve raised pits throughout my life and would love to get another. Someday.

    Please let me know where I can send money each month to sponsor one of your dogs. Thanks.


  19. shelbi on January 12th, 2012 1:45 am

    hello i just signed up to sponser the wonderful dog i wish i lived around there cause i would be there everyday to help for free but unfourtntely i live in michigan so hopefully sponing rhino we can help him get the help he needs

  20. Laura on January 15th, 2012 6:10 am

    I always feel bad for the underdog. i think Rhino is cute in his own way. I woild like to set up my own rescue center out here in new york. I just dont know how to get started and i need financing, I have nine acres of land i can use. Good Luck rhino.

  21. Miriam Williams on January 15th, 2012 9:55 pm

    He is gorgeous. Is he up for adoption? Please tell me more about him. Thanks for your time.

  22. tasha on January 19th, 2012 12:30 pm

    My husband and I are avid watchers of the show we also try and rehab pits and pass them on to better homes then where they came from. What Tia and the guys do is not easy. With 1 or 2 in my house plus my stafford is hard. I could only imagen how crazy it is to work with these amaizing dogs. my husband and i plan on sponsering rhino he fell in love with him first sight.( it only makes it so much better that my husbands friends and family all call him rhino as well.) i believe ur there sorta fairy godmother as my 9 yr old would say. thank u tia for inspiren me to step out of the box and relize they r not evil vicious child terriozing dogs there loveable, gental, and well mannered.

  25. cj james on February 14th, 2012 6:33 pm

    You my AMAZING pit bull friend, remind me of my love of my life “PEETIE” who gave his LIFE to protect my girlfriend. I am in SEVERE tears right now because your species of animal get such a BAD rap in my state of Florida. If I knew that I could adopt you, I would in a second……People like me live for a breed of animal like yourself, Mr. Pitbull we train ya to love & protect and respect our family. Peetie, was a 1 in a million type of pitbull he trained so easily in german and he just ADORED children (everyones children )…I MISS YOU PEETIE, & I will LOVE YOU FOREVER….Your Owner, God Bless You Sir..

  26. Donna Lee Goerlitz on February 21st, 2012 12:37 pm

    the first time I seen this dog, there goes my heart!!!!!!!!!!!Have adopted Pit Bulls all my life, they are the most precious dog to me, with there special qualities they are absolutely beautiful. Lost my last dog Lucky ,14 years due to cancer. I’m up in years now but I’m still able to take walks not long but can still go. Lucky was a rescue the vet had gotten her before anyone bad would get her and I was still heart sick from losing the previous dog of almost 15 yrs. went ahead and took her all 14 years she was the greatest dog with kids amazingly with cats other animals. he just makes me laughand wish I owned him, just want to hug him.

  27. Danny Crenshaw on February 27th, 2012 11:51 pm

    Very Nice Dog
    I love What you are doing for these animals I’m nothin but 14 and cursed a man out for giving pitbulls a bad name when we had a real nice and very friendly pibull that was beside us.

  28. Danny Crenshaw on February 27th, 2012 11:54 pm

    Why would anyone treat pitbulls any different that any other dogs there many different dogs that people fit.

  29. DannyCrenshaw on February 28th, 2012 11:23 am

    Nice Dog
    Pit bulls Are so misunderstood
    People piss me off when they say that pit bulls turn on you when the really don’t. Human beings are so stupid!!
    Thank You Tia for helping these dogs I would really like to visit the ranch I really love pit bulls.

  30. Taylor May on March 8th, 2012 10:43 pm

    This dog is absolutely gorgeous. I wish he was up for adoption. I would drive across the U.S to have this dog.

  31. cailey pierce on April 17th, 2012 11:14 am
