Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Blind, Fearful/Anxious 

    It breaks my heart to put Maddie up for adoption. We recently moved and the move has made her more anxious than in the past most likely due to her blindness. As a business owner I do not have the time or ability to train her properly. As a result she is having very hard days at home. I am looking to place her with a home that will love her and care for her as she deserves only the best. Unfortunately I don't feel I'm someone that is in her best interest at this point. Maddie has bilateral cataracts, she gets along very well despite her limitation. This blindness however causes her to be anxious. She has been great around my other dog, ... (Read More)Charlie, however she has had difficulty around most other dogs. I feel she would be best placed in a home without any dogs or children. (Less)

I still watched closely. She is the smartest dog I have ever owned. I have to give her up due to divorce and finding a place to live. Heartbroken. I moved to Connecticut just to keep her a bit longer. But it is no longer a option.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Adult

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

    King!!! This hunk of love is now available for adoption! He has healed physically, and been decompressing and coming out of his shell to show his true sweet, loving and playful nature. King is a big, strong boy. Almost 100 lbs and 5ish years old, pit/ mastiff mix. He loves his people and doesn't like to be alone. King is housebroken and not destructive when left free to roam the house. Because he really likes his attention, we are looking for King to be an only dog. Preferably someone who works from home, or a family where someone is home most of the time. He will become your shadow and cuddlebug. He is very interested in cats, so no ... (Read More)cats or dog friendly cats, preferred. King needs to run and play, he loves chasing balls and playing rope tug, as well as relaxing in the sun. Because King is a guarding breed, and large and excitable, we are insistent upon a fenced yard. No small children, just because of his size and excitablity. He has never shown any aggression towards children, but his goofy playing may accidentally knock small children down. King has overcome so much, and he has come out the other side, healthy and sweet, with a huge loving heart, just looking for his forever home. King is now neutered, microchipped and utd on his shots. All he needs is his happily ever after!! (Less)

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. Teddy Roosevelt owned Pit Bulls. A disproportionate number of Pit Bulls are put down in major American cities each year. American Pit Bull Terriers are very similar, and some argue identical, to Staffordshire Bull Terriers.
