Pit Bull    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    I took Chloe in temporarily because she was going to be sent to a shelter and I did not want that for her. Chloe is about 1 & 1/2, medium size, and house broken. 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.

Rescue Me ID: 15-03-21-00216Sasha (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    TEMPORARY MEDICAL HOLD - LONG TERM FOSTER NEEDED Sasha is SUCH a beautiful girl! This gorgeous brindle rottie/pit bull mix came into our rescue several weeks ago from an empty apartment with no heat, water, or electricity. She and 3 other dogs were living alone, in the winter, and literally freezing. She is safe and warm now, and has been staying with a temporary foster who is totally in love with her. She does need to move to a long-term foster family, however. Sasha is a bit timid at first. We suspect there may have been some abuse in her past. When people raise their voices toward her she whimpers. With gentleness and a little bit of ... (Read More)time she warms up quickly, however, and transforms herself into a true love-bug who wants nothing more than cuddles, and to give and receive kisses. She is also shy of other dogs at first, but may do well with a calm, laid back dog. Alternatively, she would be happy as an only dog. She has become fast friends with her temporary foster's dog and they enjoy playing together. We suspect she'd be a better match in a home without cats. She is fine with children of all ages. Sasha has a tumor on one of her hind legs. It has been evaluated by our vet, and she is scheduled for surgery to have it removed on March 26. She is currently on medication that we hope will shrink the tumor somewhat, making it easier to remove the tumor completely. As a result, at this point we are looking for a foster for Sasha and she will not be cleared for adoption until her medical issues are fully addressed. If you can open your home and heart to Sasha as a foster family, please private message our page or email: furryfriendsct@yahoo.com (Less)

    PRUDENCE IS SEARCHING FOR A FOREVER FAMILY! This sweet girl has come so far since we saved her a few weeks ago from an empty apartment in Waterbury that had no heat, water, or electricity. She is a loveable pup who will do best in a home with another dog and a family who is home a good deal. She has some separation anxiety right now - but it is getting better by the day. With daily exercise and a little time, we believe that it will dissipate quickly. She loves people and loves being close and giving and receiving cuddles and kisses.

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Malnourished, Fearful/Anxious 

    Milo has lived in a home with a child for the last 6-1/2 years with a female owner. He is a sweet, loving, attentive dog that loves to be loved. He is currently in a very temporary foster situation and has shown some slight aggression (growling) over food, but he is loose with three other dogs. I do believe he was underfed and neglected which may be the reasons he is showing this behavior. He truly is a wonderful dog that deserves to be in a loving and safe environment. He has been to the vet and there is no apparent medical reason for his low weight. He was negative for heart worm and lyme. Was given up to date rabies vaccine. Will ...

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Vaccinations Current 

    Gloria is a beautiful, 3 year old, Pit/Mastiff mix. She is very sweet and very strong. She gets along well with other dogs, but we are not sure about other animals. She is living in a foster home with small children, but has to be watched because she gets excited and is active. She would likely be best with a family who has older children only because they are more steady on their feet. When Gloria was rescued, she was extremely emaciated and tied to a log with a chain. She was taken to a high kill shelter. Our rescue pulled her from the shelter and she was vetted and spayed. She did test positive for heartworms and other parasites, ...

    He's a very good dog besides the fact of not liking other dogs. He sits on command, shakes on command and lays down on command. His other problem is that he jumps a lot. Idk if it's because he's locked in A cage all the time or what. But my current job keeps me unable to take care of him so I want to find a good home for him.

    My fiance and I are seeking to relinquish our 6 year old female, white and black pit bull that was adopted as a puppy. We are unfortunately unable to care for her any longer as she has demonstrated food aggression and will not be suitable in a home with children. She is not a 'high energy' dog. She is very sweet, loving and just wants to cuddle. She would be best suited in a home with no other pets or children. She weighs about 52 pounds. She is up to date on all of her immunizations and heartworm preventative and we have all documentation of such. We are heartbroken, but feel that we can no longer provide her with what she needs.

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Obese 

    Nana is SUCH a sweet, mellow pup! She was one of three dogs we rescued from an abandoned building in Waterbury CT. When we took Nana to be spayed, we discovered that she had a serious infection of the uterus, called pyometra - without prompt treatment she would likely have died. The vet estimates that she had 10-12 litters of puppies. She is about 7 years old - she was bred over and over again. That is now in her past, however, and Nana is looking forward to a happy, healthy future! And Nana sure doesn't seem to hold her past against anyone! She's a sweet, loving, mellow pup who just seems to love everyone - including children and ... (Read More)other dogs. She hasn't yet been tested with cats but we think she may do well with them, too. Right now Nana is on a diet - she's about 15 lbs overweight. Other than that, she is healthy and ready to go home with some very lucky family! (Less)

    Princess is a sweet, loving girl. She began life in a puppy mill where she was bred at least 3 times in the first 3 years of her life and often had to fight for meals. Then she was taken in and kept in a kennel where she was bullied by another female pittie. All she wants is to be loved and cared for, to be your only animal companion. Can you help? Need to update: we were told she was spayed, imagine our surprise when she went into heat a few weeks ago. I am looking into cost effective spaying now.

Rescue Me ID: 15-01-07-00534Chop (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    Chop is a loving black white brindle puppy. Loves kids and other animals but the cat I've had is not adjusting to his playfulness. He has lived with an older cat since he was 7 weeks old. All he wants is a buddy. He is a little jumpy, I assume because of his age and my lack of disipline. He can however sit, give paw and high fives. I would love for Choppy to have a yard to play in. Right now he is restricted to apartment living and that doesn't help with his energy level. He has a sensitive stomach and is not allowed table scraps or excessive treats.

Rescue Me ID: 14-12-31-00151Nugget (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Nugget is a 2 year old male pitbull who was adopted at ledyard animal shelter at 5 months of age. Nugget is looking for a new home as soon as possible because despite alot of effort on his owners part he needs to be an only dog and this whole 'new spouse's dog moving in' thing is just NOT working for him. Nugget is neutered and up to date on all his shots. Nugget also gets a monthly flea preventative (Vectra). Nugget is located in Lisbon, CT. Nugget is house trained, knows basic commands (including 'get it' and 'drop it' as well), was previously crate trained in the past, and has had training with Problem Pooch, Petco and John Gagnons. ... (Read More)Nugget has also seen a Canine Behaviorist in Connecticut who agreed with John Gagnon's verdict that Nugget is NOT aggressive but does need to be an only dog in a home or have a VERY experienced owner to help him work through his problems. All in all Nugget has come a long way since being adopted by his current owners. When his mom first adopted him he could not stand still or even walk on a leash. Nugget still struggles with his odd fear of trash bags, and his boisterous demanding behavior which results in him getting time outs till he calms down. Nugget has been around children before and has always been friendly, but should only go to a home with older children because he does not know his own strength. Nugget also loves to chase cats, so cats would likely prefer a home without Nugget in it. As stated previously, Nugget should be an only dog in a household. Nugget's favorite toys are Jolly balls and other toys made by the same company that hold up to his rough play. Nugget is also very smart and loves toys that keep him thinking and work his brain. Nugget is a very devoted, goofy, loyal, cuddly, big baby who needs a wonderful new home without other dogs. There is NO adoption fee for Nugget, just the promise of a great life and the right home for him. Adopters must drive to pick him up after being approved to adopt. To adopt adopters must fill out an application which includes references we will check (2 personal and a vet), and allow a home visit at their residence.

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.
