Rescue Me ID: 15-02-26-00477Gloria (female)

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, ... (Read More)but has been involved in treatment. She will be finished with her heartworm treatment in a few weeks and ready for adoption. If interested in providing the home she has always deserved, please email psiloveyouar@gmail.com (Less)

Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    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.

    She is an absolute doll. I have seen this dog grow from week 2 and has been a family pet ever since however due to life situations I cannot provide her the attention she has grown accustomed to and it is unfair to selfishly deny this beautiful animal the best life it deserves. She has always been around kids and is amazing with babies especially. she is energetic and forgets at times she is a large dog and prefers to lay all over you . she is fast and loves to run and go for walks.she hates dog beds and prefers a nice quilt(which she will drag around when its time for bed to let everyone know its late)I love her so much and pains me to ...

    Angelica is an extremely friendly Pit Bull. She is around 6 years old and I adopted her when she was around 6 months old. Unfortunately I am moving and dogs are not allowed.

I am looking for a home were someone is very dog friendly and is passionate towards dogs. It is very important to me that she gets a great home with lots of love.

Personality: Average Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    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.

    ROSEY - AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION - OR LONG TERM FOSTER NEEDED Rosey is SUCH a gorgeous, loveable pup! This young girl has not had an easy time of it, but is just now embarking on a brand new, wonderful rest of her life. After spending over 10 months at Bridgeport Animal Control and another 4 months at a rehab facility, Rosey is now back in CT and is ready, willing, and waiting for all the good things her new life will hold for her. Rosey does not have much - if in fact any - experience living in a home environment. She will need an experienced, patient family to teach her to ropes of family life - but that should be easy, because Rosey ... (Read More)loves her humans and naturally looks to them for direction and guidance. Rosey is a big, energetic girl. Her ideal family will be active and willing to commit to giving her plenty of daily exercise. She needs a family with no other pets, and older children (16+), at least for the time being. Rosey will be spending some time in a board and train program to help her transition from life in a kennel to life in a home. That process will be so much easier in a family setting. For more information about Rosey or to apply to foster or adopt her, please private message our Facebook page or email: furryfriendsct@yahoo.com (Less)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
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)

Rescue Me ID: 15-01-16-00143Mr. Biggins (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Fearful/Anxious 

    Poor Mr. Biggins (aka Briggs) had a very, very sad start to his life. His owners moved out of town and left him chained to a tree without food, water, or shelter. Thankfully, a kind soul rescued him before a big ice storm last year! Once all of his vetting was complete, he traveled up to Connecticut to find his forever home. He had a difficult time in the shelter being housed in a group environment. He was uncomfortable around other dogs he wasn't familiar with but was always great around people! Due to the stressful environment, many dogs develop behavioral issues living in a shelter over time. Within 6 months, he was returned twice for ... (Read More)growling at people he didn't know and was in and out of the shelter. After being returned for the second time, he lost so much confidence that he would growl at anyone he didn't know. Knowing that he was a special needs pup, he was taken in by a foster family who could work with him and his confidence issues. While in a foster home, he has gotten over his fear of other dogs and is fantastic with them now! We had a great dog trainer come out, Donna Gleason with TLC Dog Training, for an evaluation. She came to the conclusion that he is just terrified of people he doesn't know which is why he growls. She pointed out that he won't even make eye contact and avoids new people when they come up to him. He only growls when they try to touch him so it is definitely fear based. The fosters have been working with him and he is slowly starting to trust new people again--it will just take time and patience! Besides his issues with new people, Briggs is the perfect dog!!! He is about 2-3 years old and completely potty trained, crate trained, and well behaved in the house. He is up to date on all vaccinations, heartworm/flea/tick preventative, and is already neutered. He knows how to sit, lay down, stay, give paw, and sing on command! Briggs is great off leash and comes running when he's called. He's scared of cats and doesn't mess with the free range chickens at his foster home. He's great around other dogs once he gets to know them (the Cavalier King Charles, Dachshund, and Chihuahua boss him around) and he will do anything for his people. He is definitely a dog who will do anything to please and expect LOTS and LOTS of kisses from this sweet boy!!!! Briggs is looking for: --A confident, experienced dog owner --Someone who is patient and willing to work with his issues, no matter how long it takes --A caring but firm person who will set boundaries and be consistent with his training --Someone to love him for the rest of his life %BD%BD%BD Do you think you might be the forever home Briggs has been searching for? Please send me an email at Heathermdewey7@gmail.com and I can answer any additional questions you may have! As much as his foster mom adores him, she knows that there is a forever home out there that will love him just as much!! Please share Briggs' story!!! (Less)

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.

    Daisy is a 2yr old spayed female pit mix. She was originally adopted from a shelter at a year old & her family decided they didn't want her anymore so they were going to put her to sleep.

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.

    I have to rehome my dog Jewels due to circumstances beyond my control. She is very high energy, needs lots of exercise and needs a big yard. She would do better with a fairly young female or male that can keep up with her energy. I got her as a rescue in NY she was abandoned. Love her to death but i have to move and cannot take her with me, she is very smart and very cute and very loveable, this is very hard for me to let her go so she needs to be in the right home.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Adult

Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    Tommy is an 'elder-bull,' which of course is just our term for a gentle old man pit bull mix. He's about 8 years young and has the most endearing soft senior bark. He was found roaming in Bridgeport just over 2 weeks ago. No one has come to claim him, so if we can't find his first family, surely we can find a better one! Please share Tommy's sweet face so he can be home for the 'howlidays.' He's waiting at Bridgeport Animal Control.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 

    ** COURTESY POST ** 'Shane' is estimated to be about 5 or 6 years old. I think he's a healer/pitbull mix (based on size, stature and the way he reacts around the horses, he's got some herding instinct!!!). He's been on my farm since July, and has come around to being a nice and relatively well adjusted dude. Walks on a leash, but is good off of one as well, comes when called, knows some tricks, and is good with other dogs so far. He's very housebroken. He can be tentative of men, though will come around if effort is put in to being a buddy. He loves his toys, loves to play, needs an active household that can maintain the obedience in a ... (Read More)fair and kind manner. On a leash he's well behaved, attentive and less weird around new people/men. Shane is available through Tails of Love Rescue in NYC.

    Destiny is a 7 year old red nose pitbull. We've had her since she was born, but recently we moved about 6months ago and new people bought the property and want our dog out ASAP!

No using the bathroom in the house (she will wait till your ready) she doesn't not climb, scratch, or playing on or with furniture, clothing, etc. She is the perfect dog and we are devastated we have to get rid of her.

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. A disproportionate number of Pit Bulls are put down in major American cities each year.
