Feb. 21, 2013 - PRLog -- The reputation of the pitbull terrier is getting a boost from CharlieDog and Friends (, a Rye, NY-based toy company that makes plush dogs and cats inspired by real-life animal shelter adoptions.

CharlieDog and Friends has released their first line-up of Pocket Pitties (, featuring seven pitbulls rescued from the New York City shelter system's death row.  All seven dogs are leading happy lives with their adoptive families, and represent the full potential of the much-maligned dog that fills America's animal shelters and rescues.

The 7" plush toys were created to raise awareness for the adoptability of the stray, abandoned or otherwise homeless pitbull, and are sold with a postcard from the real-life dog.  The seven featured pitbulls include Jeffrey, a former stray from New York who now works as a therapy dog with a Newtown, Connecticut classroom and a library reading program, and Ruko, a search-and-rescue dog.

Pocket Pitties are also helping to fund the humane education outreach programs of Bruised Not Broken (, a pitbull advocacy group based in New York City.  CharlieDogs donates four dollars for every Pocket Pittie sold (MRP $16.99) directly to Bruised Not Broken.

The first release of the "Bruised Not Broken" edition of Pocket Pitties is available for purchase online, and in select retail outlets:

Founded in 2011 by sports photographer Suzy Allman, CharlieDog and Friends has created the world's first plush dogs and cats inspired by real-life animal rescue and shelter pets, and has raised thousands of dollars for local rescue organizations and shelters, while donating toys to hospitals, humane education, therapy dog work and nursing homes.
