Rescue Me ID: 15-06-20-00421Elsie (female)

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Needs Vaccinations 

    Elsie has been my best friend since she was 8 weeks old. She is loving, sweet natured,and devoted. She has a few issues, and here they are: She is obcessed with chasing chipmunks and squirrels, and unless we are out in the woods away from road, she must be leashed, as she will not come during the chase! She is 80 lbs of muscle, and she needs a strong arm to handle that leash! And the other things I listed above in her profile need to be considered as well.. Aside from those things, she is good to go, in my opinion! Elsie is a free and great security system in that she has a Big bark- announcing any visitors. Once those visitors (whom she ... (Read More)already knows)reach the door, and come in, the Bravado is gone, and all is well! In other words, she Sounds scarey, but thats it. NEVER has been aggressive..just think she is protective of me! She sleeps on my bed every night,cuddling since 8 weeks old. She is the Only dog Ive ever heard of who will step right into the tub for a bath-and is perfectly well behaved while in there! I love my Elsie dearly, and would do most Anything (that I could afford) to keep her- but Im selling my home and moving to a mobile home park that will NOT accept any of the 'Aggressive Breeds' Pit Bulls, German Shepherds, Dobies, Rotties, etc. These restrictions are for insurance purposes, not for real life consideration for these dogs! So there is Elsie The Cow's story..! She has been so very affectionate and sensitive/devoted/accepting with me, as I have been with her. If you think you are her New Right Person, please contact me..Look at that Smile!! (Less)

Pit Bull    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Very High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    Bruno is a very energetic pit bull. He is very sweet. He is a nervous dog around some strangers. He gives me 'hugs'. He stands up on his hind legs and hugs and snuggles. He also snuggles if I am sitting down. He gives kisses too :) His previous owner was my boyfriend who died April 2, 2015 :( I recently adopted him but it is just not working out. I have two senior pugs and he recently grabbed my female by the face three times and wouldn't let go for a bit in one day. He has tried to bite my blind male pug twice. So, I have to keep him and my pugs separate. He is too much for me. I'm 50 years old and work 5 days a week. He needs to be the ... (Read More)only dog with someone who has the time and energy he deserves. He really is a sweet boy. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Pit Bull in Maine
    Pit Bull Dogs can make good pets in Maine 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.
