Rescue Me ID: 16-04-27-00267Kobe (male)

Pit Bull    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Vaccinations Current 

    Kobe is a wonderful companion for anyone looking for an active, energetic, loving friend. He loves his rope toys, a belly rub now and then and always wants to sleep with you. He isn't fond of cats, and wouldn't do well with children under 13 years old. He would do well with a fenced in yard. He does have a slight protective instinct and will alert if there is any cars or people near the house. He knows his basic commands such as: Sit, down, paw, stay, and wait. He is house broken and will let you know when he needs to go out. He would do better in a home with younger dogs because he does like play a little rough.

    We are currently fostering this super sweet and loving dog Rex. Unfortunately our tiny cavalier spaniel is too timid to play with Rex and it isn't working having them together. He is 19 months old and neutered. Incredibly sweet and loves to cuddle and play. He loves people and grew up with a kindergarten age child so he is good with kids. We regularly take him to the dog park and he loves to play with all kinds of dogs. He really is a great dog and we are searching for a family that will love and care for him.

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Toby is an absolutely awesome dog. Check out the Facebook Page devoted to this great dog: https://www.facebook.com/search/top/?q=triumphant toby needs a new home We adopted him over a year ago from a rescue organization, and he is one of the sweetest dogs ever. However, our darn cat hates him, and is making him miserable. Toby is so sweet, he doesn't retaliate. Also, Toby really wants to be with other dogs, so he goes to Doggy Day Care every day to get his 'fix'. You can see in the picture (eyes are just closed in the pic because he was just chillin, I can send more) he can be very loving and relaxed. Day Care is expensive, and we are ... (Read More)not in a financial position to keep sending him, or to get another dog. He does best with other pit bulls or other larger dogs, because they all seem to have the same need for play and fun. He's fine with cats. Our cat is just a jerk with this poor dog. We have tried everything to help them adjust to each other to no avail! He loves everybody, and is a favorite at day care. Please - to loving family only! He comes with everything - crate, food, leashes, collars, UTD on all shots, had the best vet care, etc. Loves EVERYBODY (even the cat) He's a big mush but really needs a brother or sister to play with.

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Kilo's foster mom tells us that Kilo is doing just great! He has settled in well to his foster home, and is being such a good boy. Kilo can hear her when she comes home, and is always waiting at the door for her with his tail going a mile a minute. He is brushing up on his manners and already knows 'sit' and 'paw' - and is getting better at 'stay'. He is also house trained. Kilo has seen our vet and is up to date now on all of his vaccines, as well as having all of the tests we do routinely when a dog comes into our rescue. He has also been neutered. He gets along well with other dogs his own size, but would do best in a home without ... (Read More)cats or other small furry creatures. Because he's a big guy, we're recommending children 7 years old or older - he could easily topple really small children without meaning to do so. Kilo is a bull dog mix, about 6 years old. He's a friendly, funny, lovable cuddle-bug who will make a totally terrific family member! His New Year's wish - and ours! - is to find a wonderful forever home for this sweet dog. (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.

Pit Bull
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.
