About Underdogs SA

The only Pit bull breed specific rescue and rehabilitation centre in South Africa, specialising in all things related to Pit bulls

As advocates of the Pit bull breed, we promise these beautiful animals that we will always be their voice, rescuing them and rehabilitating them through immense love and care that they deserve.

Founder Estelle Smith has over 35 years of experience with this breed and vows to stand by them, to protect them, and to rescue them from abuse, cruelty, hate, fighting, and the severely misaligned public perception that has been created.

Underdogs is built on a strong foundation of unwavering passion for this magnificent breed. With rehabilitation and education as focal points for Estelle, she is determined to change public perception about Pit bulls, and to educate people against the vicious practice of dog fighting and animal cruelty.

Zorro

I am about a year and a half old. I am a big boy but I have the kindest heart.

There are a devastating number of Pit bulls born into severe abuse, having to sustain constant suffering that reaches sadistic and barbaric proportions. By adopting one of our beautiful babies and showing them that humans are capable of loving them, you will change their lives forever…

At Underdogs, we ensure healthy, well-balancedPit bulls through the best medical treatment, love and emotional support, correct dietary necessities, play and exercise.

At Underdogs we believe all animals deserve:

  • Freedom from hunger and thirst
  • Freedom from discomfort (shelter and a comfortable resting area)
  • Freedom from pain, injury or disease
  • Freedom to express normal behaviour
  • Freedom from fear and distress
