Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Adult Pit Bull needs to find a new home. Her name is Samantha and she is a very loving girl. She is spayed, up-to-date on all shots, and takes a monthly heartworm prevention medicine. She is crate trained and house-broken. She knows over 20 basic commands including 'leave it', 'go potty', 'home', and 'paw'. Her only downfall is that she does not get along with cats and can become aggressive when in close proximity to them. She does excellent with other dogs in day camp and beagle-sister (wants to be the alpha), large groups of people (life of the party), and has not exhibited any aggression towards children (played well with 3 year ... (Read More)old). She would do best with a family that has a larger yard for her to play in, and another dog. Does not currently live in a house with children, but has not shown aggression to any child she has met or played with. No food aggression or toy aggression either. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-07-15-00126Clara (male)

Pit Bull    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Our vivacious Clara has the bouyant good nature that attracts American Pit Bull Terrier folks to this lovable breed. No other breed has been so overbred, mishandled and maligned as the APBT. We are thrilled to have Clara join us, at the beginning of her life, so that we can find her forever home with owners who appreciate and understand the breed. Clara started off her rescue journey as a statistic: just one more homeless pit roaming the mean city streets. She has traversed the rescue process with ease, and had displayed great confidence and panache as she has interacted with everyone along the way. Her behavior evaluations were great, and ... (Read More)she was adopted through a shelter adopter program to a superb young family, who learned quickly that Clara was not a good fit for a feline household. Clara's young owner approached us and we agreed to find a cat free home for this stupendous red nosed beauty. Clara has been handled with great love and care, and has a friendly, outgoing temperment. She has been properly exercised and much attention has been paid to her general obedience and manners. She has completely charmed her foster family that includes another female pittie, a young Rottie, and 2 preteen, dog savvy kids. Clara would be a fantastic choice for a bully breed lover, who is willing to continue Clara's exercise and obedience regimen that has fostered such great behavior so far. A bored, frustrated Bully will make mischief, to be sure, but in the hands of dedicated breed enthusiasts, who rejoice in their high energy companions, Pitties are Man's devoted BFFs. Clara is a total stunner. She is a red nose ABPT, with the most amazing blue peepers since Ol' Blue Eyes. Her coat is a pretty carmel with white tuxedo markings and cute white socks. She is known as a petite, "Pocket Pittie" due to her small stature. Although Clara is quite strong and muscular, she weighs only 39 pounds. Clara has been thoroughly vetted, She has been vaccinated for rabies, DHLPP (distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parvo and parainfluenza), and has been boostered as needed. She has had the 4dx test, and is negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis. She has been dewormed, and microchipped. If you are interested in Clara, please write to Denise@eskiesonline.com or call Denise at 720-903-0636 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. Once an adopter is approved, we arrange transportation. We do not adopt dogs beyond our territory. Please visit our website: www.eskiesonline.com for more information about our group and our adoption procedures. (Less)

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Koda is 1 1/2 years old and loves to play. She gets along with our other dog, but she wants to be boss so she'd probably be best as an only dog. We are looking to find her a good home where she'll get lots of love and attention. We love her very much, but we have 2 little girls and although Koda is very lovable, she doesn't handle horse play very well so we would feel more comfortable if she was with someone that has no children. She loves to be pet and play ball. She is a house dog and is very protective. She is to only go to a home where she will be indoors with lots of love.

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Murphy appears to be a mix of possibly Great Dane, French Bulldog, Pit Bull Terrier-type, and a whole lotta cute! He is approximately 4 1/2 years old, and was rescued by his current owner in October of 2012 from the New Haven Animal Shelter.%A0 Murphy is approximately 85 lbs, and 24 inches high (top of his big blocky head). He neutered and is UTD on his shots, and just a complete LOVEBUG. %A0He LOVES people, but because of his size and strength and bounciness, he is best suited for a home with older kids (over 12). He is strong so he needs someone committed to his training . Murphy needs to be the only pet in the home. He does not care for ... (Read More)cats, and is selective in his choice of larger dogs. He sees smaller dogs as prey. Murphy will be available for adoption as of 6/14/2015. Please call Leslie at 203-675-2464 if you would like to meet Murphy. His time in foster is limited, so please consider adopting or sharing with anyone you know that would love a new hunk of love in their lives! Murphy comes with funding for any training that he may need. (Less)

    Dream is a great dog shes been around people and kids since about 8 weeks. Unfortunately I am no longer in a position to keep her.

She just needs a lot of love and care that I can no longer give to her, it breaks my heart to get rid of her but she needs a good stable home.

Pit Bull    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered 

    Hi I am looking to re-home my dog.He is a young Pitbull. He can be very loving and loves to cuddle. He will be on 1July 20th, 2015, he is neutered and up to date on all his shots. He is generally great with adults and teenagers. We do not socialize with children or cats I would not know how he would react. Unfortunately he had a not so great encounter with our landlord and he is forcing us to move or get rid of our dog. I am not in the financial position to move into another place at the moment and I have to opt to re-home my dog. I hope you can help me find him a good home for him.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Chloe has been a great dog. She came to live with us when she was 1 year old, she was rescued from a high kill shelter and has been with us for about four years. My daughter recently had a child and we have discovered that Chloe is not good with children. She needs a loving home, preferable with bigger dogs for her to play with, that absolutely has no children or cats. She has been good with our cairn terrier, but it took some training to make sure she was not overly energetic and accidentally aggressive with her. With patience and training, she will make a great companion.

Chloe is timid around other dogs however she is an extremely friendly & playful people person. Chloe is not aggressive at all which is why I am looking for Chloe to be rehomed with a family preferably. Children and Chloe would definitely keep each other busy. Chloe loves to be pet and rubbed on her belly.

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.

lnteresting Pit Bull Trivia Low-Cost Connecticut Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Some people believe that Pit Bulls are identical to what Bulldogs were in the past. Unfortunately, Pit Bulls are often used for illegal dog fighting. American Pit Bull Terriers are very similar, and some argue identical, to Staffordshire Bull Terriers.
