    ISO temporary foster home for sweet Blue. She is a pitbull that our son adapted, but she doesn't get along with our older female mixed breed dog. Our adult son is working on finding a rental that will accept her, but she needs someone to love and care for her for a month or two. Food will be provided, she is registered and up to date on shots and LOVES people and attention...just not all female dogs.

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi! My name is Eros and I'm a 3-year-old AmStaff mix and weigh about 55 lbs. I'm an incredibly sweet and loving dog with the perfect mix of energy and calmness: I love to play in the yard with other dogs, but I'll settle down when it's time to come inside. When dogs are rough with me, I'm still incredibly gentle and never growl or bite. I also love to play with children and don't mind if they climb on me or pull my tail - I am very patient! I am good in cars and I walk well on a leash. I'm a smart boy, so I am fully house-trained and I'm even learning basic commands! You will never meet a dog that's happier to be with his people, so let me ... (Read More)know if you're looking for a forever friend to give you unconditional love!

    We rescued Athena from a high kill shelter in Central Florida. She is about 5 months old and is the most loving and affectionate dog! She is bubbly and peppy and gets along great with kids and dogs of all ages and sizes. She is wonderful in the crate, is not a barker, and is a very easy puppy to care for. Athena is very smart and only having her in our home for around 3 weeks, we are able to take her outside off leash! She is very well behaved! She is in Southbury, Ct being raised in a loving home with children.

Rescue Me ID: 17-03-23-00079Molly (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Our Molly is a winsome beauty, who longs to connect with her special person. Last Summer, she was found as a stray in Brooklyn, and was brought to the city pound as just one more stray Pit mix. She didn't seem too shaken by the shelter experience, and received positive behavior evaluations, and was quickly put up for adoption. After a few months, Molly's family gave up on her and returned her to the shelter. It was obvious that they failed to maintain any level of leadership or commit to any training program. And so, the second time around, our shelter contacts diverted Molly to our Rescue, so that we could do a better job at matchmaking ... (Read More)for her. Just under two years old, Molly is poised to start her new life. Good golly, Miss Molly appears to be largely an American Pitbull Terrier, however she has extremely petite features. Our shelter contacts suggest that Molly is part Border Collie. Indeed, she is a tall, lean dog at just 35 pounds. Her short, blue-black coat glistens, and she has white tuxedo markings and 'socks.' She is quick, lithe and fleet-footed, all making us agree that there may be a little Border Collie in her DNA. This is one Pocket Pittie who has the makings of an agility champion. Molly is a mix of two extremely powerful and intelligent breeds, so the need for her to receive sufficient exercise and Leadership training is paramount. She needs at least two to three brisk leash walks daily, as well as focused playtime and consistent obedience work. Molly is extremely eager to please, treat motived, and responds well to positive reinforcement training techniques. She has quite easily mastered her basic obedience routine, and is on her way to Canine Good Citizenship. Adopters should be able to continue her training and achieve certification quickly. Molly has a gentle, friendly demeanor and genuinely loves human contact. She would be a good choice for an active, dog savvy single or couple who can provide the exercise and attention that she needs. Molly is on the laid-back end of the personality spectrum, and while she loves to play, her style is not over-the-top rough-house. Molly would thrive in an active lifestyle that provides alot of action and attention, and in which she can shine as a superstar. Molly enjoys the company of other dogs, and could easily join a multi-dog home, with proper introduction and training. She has a neutral temperament that could blend into just about any kind of pack. We have not checked her with cats. She has good house manners, and is housetrained and crate trained, although adopters should be prepared to troubleshoot post training accidents during her transition to a new routine. Molly is in excellent health, has been spayed. Molly has been vaccinated for Rabies, DHLPPC (distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parvo, parainfluenza and coronavirus), She has been boostered as needed. She has had the 4dx test: negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis. If you are interested in Molly, please write to Denise@eskiesonline.com or call Denise at 860-908-9738 for more info. Eskies Online is a 501(c)(3) Multibreed rescue group that serves unwanted American Eskimos and other dogs in need. Our group of volunteer foster homes spans the North East, and our adoption territory extends from Maine to eastern Pennsylvania, Delaware, and parts of northern Maryland.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Pit Bull in Connecticut
    Pit Bull Dogs can make good pets in Connecticut if they match your IifestyIe. The American Pit Bull Terrier is a powerful dog with an undeserved reputation for inherent viciousness. A Pit Bull that receives attention, firm training, and thorough socialization makes a wonderful family guardian that is trustworthy with children. Pit Bulls need committed, experienced owners that exude leadership. Pit Bulls excel at high level obedience with proper training. Pit Bulls have been bred for dog fights, and unfortunately a dog that is abused, neglected, or whose instinctive aggression is encouraged, can become hostile and dangerous. Pit Bulls can adapt to apartment life with enough exercise.

    Some people believe that Pit Bulls are identical to what Bulldogs were in the past. Teddy Roosevelt owned Pit Bulls. Unfortunately, Pit Bulls are often used for illegal dog fighting.
