Rescue Me ID: 17-06-11-00320Sweet Millie (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Abused/Neglected 

    *HELP US HELP HER FIND A HOME...PLEASE SHARE!!! THIS GIRL HAS BEEN THROUGH HELL* *Watch Millie's video! https://youtu.be/j208jNPcd4w * Sometimes we sit and dwell over the unfathomable darkness that seems to suffocate this world. When we see the atrocious acts of evil that are bestowed upon the most innocent creatures, we can't bear it. We can't bear to see the pain, the affects of the trauma, the horrifying 'after' to a 'before' that was once so pure. We can't bear it. We look at Millie and we can't bear it. Born pure and innocent, some disgusting monster took one gaze at this girl and decided he would ruin her. Physically and ... (Read More)emotionally, he decided he would destroy her. And so he did. Or so he thought. Millie is not ruined. Millie is not broken. Millie has been hit, yelled at, bred mercilessly until her body no longer could bear puppies, she faced hell day in and day out for 10 years. For 10 years Millie was made to believe only a world of pain existed. She was made to believe sure, maybe love was real, but not for her. She was made to believe that she didn't matter, that she was her 'owner's' personal punching bag, a money machine'|Millie was made to believe she did not matter and she was not lovable. But did he ruin her? Maybe he thinks he did. But Millie's fire can't be put out, no matter how much darkness he wrapped her in. We are desperately looking for a home for Millie. A special home, where she can be a loved family dog, not a mother. It is her turn to be somebody's baby. We ask that Millie's adopters do not crate her. She can't bear it, not after all those years of living in one. All she wants is to sleep on the couch and be free in a HOME. She is not destructive. We ask that Millie goes to a quiet home where she can live the rest of her golden years with gentle, loving people. If there is another dog in the home, they will have to meet a few times to get used to each other. It's possible, but will take some time. Millie would prefer to be your one-and-only girl. For once she would love all the attention on her - someone who will make Millie the light of their life, as she will do the same for you. Millie has scars, her legs are bowed, causing a slight limp, she also has a cataract, and has severe blunt-force trauma all over her body, according to the vet. But whoever did this to her, did not ruin her. Millie believes that and we hope you do too. All Millie needs is love, a warm bed, and a few good meals a day. She is currently in boarding in Bethlehem, CT. We are begging for the right family to find this girl and take her home. Please'|she deserves this. Please. If you would like to adopt or foster Millie please email priderockrescue@gmail.com and we'd be happy to help (Less)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Dez has been our family dog since he was 8 weeks old. We rescued him from a backyard breeder. He is a pit bull black lab mix and is absolutely the love of our family. We are devastated to hear we have recently been forced to change our living conditions and we can not take him with us. We have four children and a pug which Dez is great with. He is a very dominant dog that is very vocal, however will be the first to snuggle with me on the sofa. He is a 100 lb lap dog! We live a very busy life so he would really thrive with a family that can train him to be more socially polite. He is NOT aggressive at all however he likes to be heard with his ... (Read More)strong bark. If you love Dez, he will be the first one to love you right back. My children are heartbroken about this, so we would love to find a family we can stay in touch with. (Less)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered 

    Lucky is still looking for his forever home. He was surrendered by the local ACO back in December and has yet to find a true home to call his own. His previous owner had him tethered in the back yard enduring all of the elements, with no shelter or bedding, just a tarp. He is a very sweet dog that is currently being crate trained. Each day he is improving on his leash skills and proper in home etiquette. He would do best in a home that has experience with the breed for proper training purposes. He is waiting for his forever home.

She's my baby. I don't have much time so please if interested contact me asap. Thank you so much.

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)

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Murray is a five year old pit bull that was adopted from a rescue at the age of one. Unfortunately his owner can no longer keep him due to a new living situation. He needs a new home by the end of this month. He is an incredibly sweet dog who loves companionship, whether it's for long walks or just to sit with someone in the couch. He is housebroken and knows basic commands. He was just at the vet in April and declared to be in good health. Murray has lived with cats and other dogs without problems and seems to love kids, though has never lived with any. He is a happy dog and truly deserves a good home!

    Shadow came to us very scared and not really socialized, we found him an amazing foster who has really helped him come out of his shell. He is learning his leash manners and is a gentleman inside the house. He enjoys hikes and playing outdoors. We recommend kids 13 and older because we don't want him knocking them over. He'll be meeting the resident dog soon. We believe with slow intros he'll be fine with another his size

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. 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.
