Two on the doorstep of Florida Highway Patrol’s headquarters back in June could be euthanized on Monday unless they are rescued.

The dogs, named George and Gracie after they were found, were adopted by a secretary with the agency. But she had trouble keeping the dogs in her yard, and several times they broke through her fence.

According to FHP, she surrendered them to Orange County Animal Services because she said they needed more help than she could provide.

However, the shelter says the dogs are aggressive toward other dogs, so they will not adopt George and Gracie out to the public. They want a to take the dogs.

Orange County Animal Services spokesperson Diane Summers says they work with almost 50 rescue groups and hope one will step up and take the dogs.

Sgt. Kim Montes, spokesperson for Florida Highway Patrol, says the woman who originally adopted George and Gracie is trying to help find the dogs a new home.

One of the dogs also tested positive for heartworm and will need treatment.

The dogs each shelter numbers, which makes it easier to find the dogs. Gracie is A267311. George is A267312.

If you can help, call at 407-836-3111, or email them at here.

    A bit of proof that any animal that comes from terrible upbringings just needs a bit of love and care to turn around and be happy, healthy and loving family pets.
    These dogs are truly remarkable. :3
    As for everyone who says fighting dogs can’t be safe pets, just be quiet already, would ya?

    Bad Rap has a nice website and a lot of things you can read all about the dogs.
    One of the things mentioned in the video was that most of the dogs weren’t aggressive towards humans. That is normal with fighting dogs because they were bread and trained to be aggressive against humans (its rather the opposite). Their owners can often pull dogs out of a fight with out the dog getting aggressive towards them. If dogs do show aggression against their owners in the ring, they are often shot.

    He didn’t rape the dogs but he killed a number of them with his bare hands and with the assistance of car batteries. This man is a sadist and should be in jail not making millions.

    I love these dogs. Their story of redemption, where they have come from, and my disgust and hate for mvick have changed my life. I love, own, advocate, speak out, fight for Pitbulls until the day I die!!!!!!

    “Even PETA”? PETA is notoriously against pit bulls to begin with, advocating the extinction of the “breed” (there is no such breed as “pit bull”, it’s actually a blanket term for several breeds). Just 1 of many reasons I will NEVER donate to them. The successful retraining of almost all of the former Vick dogs should prove to the world that it’s a matter of training; there’s no such thing as an “inherently vicious breed”, & pit bull-type dogs are among the most forgiving dogs.

    you guys and hector, the best evalution of a dog, ‘he did what he had to do to survive but that wasnt really who he was” he looks so relaxed and happy with your other 3, he will have the happiest life with you two, lovely work

    This just goes to show that all dogs deserve a second chance! Pit bulls are very loving and affectionate dogs and have been given a bad rap due to bad people! I pray that soon people will be aware of the beauty of this breed of dog! I know that after having 3 pit bulls that they really are fabulous dogs!

    People need to stop hating on people past life. People also need to stop setting good people up for lying case. There is a lot of people got rail road and set up for this Dog Fighting they they didn’t  do anything. I can know a lot. Everybody is not doing this stupid dog fighting. Morons and idiots like PETA, HSUS, ISPEAK a lot more need to understand because you have treadmill and spring pole that don’t meaning you training then to fight. Stop thinking Bull crap and assuming bull crap.

    I thought the same thing. Clearly not much effort was put into checking out PETA and assumptions were made, but the core of the story is true and beautiful.

    And yeah, dog lovers – keep your money away from PETA and find a better place for it. Love-a-Bull is nice. Or BAD RAP, from this story.
