Rescue Me ID: 18-04-12-00161Ladi Glitter Sparkles (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed 

    Ladi Glitter Sparkles Seriously is a cuddler, a lover, and a sweetheart. Once she warms up to you she will be the one doing the adopting! She came to Maine back in December giving birth to her litter of 12 on the trip up. She was a great mommy to those 12 fuzzballs, but now that all of her pups have found new homes, she needs a home of her own! Ms Ladi is a young (around 1 year old) Boxer pit mix. She is devoted to her people, walks great on a leash, and picks up tricks really fast. She adapts well to the activity of her people, by either zooming around like a crazy cannonball, or curling up on the couch to watch cartoons. She would do ...

Animal ID: 18-03-15-00056Abby (female)

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adult Women Only 
Personality: Low Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected,
 Aggressive, Fearful/Anxious 

    Abby is 5 years old, I put down aggressive because she was abused by her previous owner, I am so sad to be getting rid of her due to moving statewide. She is not aggressive towards women at all. I think it would be best if she was introduced to children and adult men very slowly. It only took a few hours for her to adjust to my husband. you just can't push a dog with no trust. This dog will make a great companion for anyone, you just have to take the time and let her get used to you.

Rescue Me ID: 17-12-14-00401HENRY (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Henry was saved from one of the high kill shelters we work with in Texas, where dogs generally get just 3 days to be saved before they are killed. Henry is neutered, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heartworm tested negative and microchipped. He has an estimated date of birth of 25 February 2017 and at the time of rescue weighed 39.00 pounds. He has been listed as a Pit Bull Terrier. We have no way of knowing the true breed, it is up to you to decide what you think his breed/s is. He arrived at the rescue in Sebec on 16th December 2017. When Henry arrived at the rescue he was quite thin and had scars and marks all over him. We are not sure ... (Read More)if these injuries are from being used as a bait dog, a fighting dog or maybe even being thrown from a vehicle. All common traits unfortunately in Texas. Although he has clearly endured much suffering, he is one of the most loving, cuddy happy boys there is. A full chem 27, complete cbc, heartworm, tick disease and SDMA test was run and then an appointment at the vets. His blood/chem work was good, with nothing unexpected (Copies are posted on his page on the rescue website) upon examination of his rear knee, the vet determined that he has a inward luxating patella caused by trauma. His knee is twice the size of his other knee and since this injury was caused by trauma, is not a straight forward case. The issue being since there is trauma, the surgery for the luxating patella might have zero impact and so will put Henry through a surgery that has a very painful 3 month recovery period. Then if surgery is done and is successful, there is no guarantee it will be long lasting due to the other injuries. It was decided after great discussion and observation of Henry that since he is still young and his body still has another 6-12 months of growth, it best to not do any surgeries. He has been prescribed Rimadyl and is being monitored to see if it makes a difference as he had been slightly limping. His injury does not slow him down, he loves to play and wrestle and other than him limping occasionally and of course his scars, you would never know anything was wrong. The family that takes on this handsome boy will need to understand that Henry's injury is not straight forward and with or without the surgery he will definitely develop arthiritis and so as he gets older will definitely need supplements for his joints and arthiritis to help alleviate pain. Surgery could possibly be an option, but would depend on how he develops and how he does over the upcoming months. This would need to be discussed with your vet upon observations of his activity and an examination. Being in a financial position to have surgery if needed is a must for his adopting family. Everyone that has met Henry has fell in love with him, he has a very infectious personality and would really be worth anything that is needed as he would give back so much more in his love and affection. Henry didn't go in the kennels due to his condition but came into the house with my dogs and some other rescue's. He settled in immediately and picked up using the dog door and never had an accident or marked in the house. He gets on great with other dogs of all ages and sizes and lives amongst dogs ranging from 4 pound chi puppies to 120 pound German Shepherds. He loves to chase and wrestle and will play at all levels and can be rough with the big dogs and then so gentle with the small dogs allowing them to climb on him or chew on his ear with no concern at all. We do not have cats at the rescue so cannot comment how he will be around them. Henry has not had any kind of formal training but he is very smart and responsive and is very well mannered, he walks ok on the leash, but as with all rescue dogs the more leash walking he gets, the better he will become. Henry has not shown any kind of aggression ever, with humans or other dogs. When people come round to the house he is very welcoming and receptive and is happy for people to love on him and him to give them kisses. He has been around small children around 7 years old was wonderful, he just wants to roll on the floor and play or get cuddles and be able to share all the love that he has. Henry is a young, high energy boy who will need a daily opportunity to get out and expel that high energy, so a family that enjoys a an active lifestyle would be needed. He is also going to need mental stimulation so games, exercise and challenges Someone who understand that he will need training and guidance and learns that humans are in charge so boundaries are set. He is going to enjoy an outdoors kind of family who can give him the lifestyle that he needs. Going on road trips, to new places, hikes and adventures and letting him explore the sights, smells and sounds the world has to offer will be to his and your benefit. He is going to need a family that understands the importance of basic and advanced training. (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.
