Compatibility: Good w/ Female Dogs Only, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    I love this gal to pieces and have had her for 5 years. Ive fallen on hard times after moving to Maine and not making the income that I had hoped. I have to return to Flordia and can not take her as I will be moving in with roomates this time. She is super adult friendly. She play with my 8 year nephew and 9 year old neice but doesnt understand the energy of kids under 8. While she was buddies with my dog in Orlando and buddies with her pal Bella here, she takes time to get to know a dog and usually its strained until she is comfortable. But she is a huge cuddler, loves adults and snuggles with almost anyone. She is potty trained, leash ... (Read More)trained,knows most commands as well as will bring her leash sometimes when asked. She lives for car rides and walks and a tennis ball is the greatest joy to her next to catching bubbles. She is slimmer than the couch potato pic since she has had more time to play and run up north. I had her at Village Vet in Rollinsford for check up as well as PetDocs in Orlando. She has no known health issues. She is a great interviewer and loves meeting new people. If you are a couple with no kids or older kids, no cats and hopefully no other dogs in the immediate future, she would love a family to couch cuddle and play tug-o-war with. She really is a sweet gal, Im just at a loss now heaving to return to Florida to start over again. Its a tough decision but I am left with no choice. In Florida pits get euthanized before they are even given a chance to be viewed for adoption or unsavory people search for the breed to fight, abuse, breed or throw in a junk lot to guard it till they die. Its sad. I know there is someone up here who would love to have a constant companion and cuddle buddy at their side who would love to take her to dog parks and long rides. P.S. She loves to wear her Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle back pack with her toys and treats in it on walks, seriously, and loves her sweater too. Were in Berwick ME not far from Dover NH. I dont want to charge a fee to a really great home, so donate to the site or your local shelter. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-01-31-00372COOPER (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Personality: High Energy 

    COOPER was an owner surrender due to his mums severe decline in health. We know little information about him until we get his paperwork, but he is approx 18 months old. He is currently hanging out with his family 6 siblings here at the rescue and all have settled in and adapted well. COOPER does have some skin issues that we are treating and just after a few days he is showing improvement and a lot happier. COOPER is a complete love bug, he loves to chill on the arm-chair or snuggle when I go down to spend some time with him and his friends. We currently feed SPORTMIX Wholesomes Chicken Meal & Rice Formula, a 4* (a per ... (Read More)www.dogfoodadvisor.com) GRAIN FREE food along with pro-bioitics and immune support supplements listed on the available dogs page! ' COOPER is available for adoption together through Give a Dog a Home, German Shepherd Dog Rescue for an adoption fee of $250. If you can give this handsome boy the life that he deserves please follow the instructions below. If you are interested in adopting COOPER and maybe one of his friends too, please complete and submit the adoption contract on our website. We ask for two personal references and a veterinary reference. It generally takes 2-3 days to process applications, as long as we are able to speak to your vet and references. http://www.giveadogahome-sanantonio.org COOPER is located at the rescue in Sebec, Maine. We post in various states along the east coast and Canada where we have had lots of successful adoptions to enable more exposure for these beautiful saved souls. Families will need to be prepared to travel to the rescue to meet and take home their new best friend. Sebec is located inbetween two small towns, Dover-Foxcroft and Milo, both approximately 6 miles away and the closest major city is Bangor (approx 45 miles). Many families travel and make a mini-vacation out of the trip and stay in beautiful Maine for the weekend, however, if this is not possible and there are options to arrange transport, we will work with you to make it happen.

Rescue Me ID: 17-01-25-00042OTIS (male)

Pit Bull    Age: Senior

Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Arthritis 

    Otis has been a great family dog for me and my two daughters . But we have changed our living situation and he is alone most of the time now . Because of that and him getting older he has become a bit grouchy with new company . Otis is looking for someone to hang out and has space for him to run around . He is old but still has energy . He is a great companion, loves going on car rides, swimming and cuddling. He is a great dog and we love him and want to see him with someone who has the time for him and will appreciate his goofy and loving loyal personality.

Rescue Me ID: 16-12-19-00211ISABELLA (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    PLEASE ENSURE YOU READ ALL THE INFORMATION PROVIDED TO LEARN ALL ABOUT GRACIE, HER LOCATION AND ADOPTION OPTIONS. ISABELLA was saved from Texas where dogs in the kill shelters have 3 days to be saved before they are killed. GRACIE is spayed, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heart-worm and tick disease (SNAP 4DX) tested negative and micro-chipped. She has an estimated date of birth of 11 June 2016 and at the time of rescue (December 2016) weighs around 26 pounds. We are looking for a family that understands the misconception of the pit-bull breed, a family that lives in a welcoming environment and if they ever had to move would only ever ... (Read More)move to where she was welcome as part of the family also. We also are looking for a family familiar with the breed and their characteristics and mannersims to be sure that she gets the perfect family this time round. ISABELLA was malnourished and had demodex mange and skin infections at the time of rescue, however, she has been on treatment and has made excellent progress, with almost all of her hair grown back in, the mange and infections treated and she has been gaining weight and will continue to improve as she grows. She is a lovely grey colour and such a happy, loving, affectionate girl. She does get very excited and jumps up, so she will need a family with patience to continue to work with her and teach her manners. ISABELLA has become so happy and excited since being here, she runs and plays with the other dogs as she knows she is now safe, healthy and has lots of dogs to play with. She currently lives with all size dogs ranging from 6 pound chi's to 95 pound German Shepherds and gets on great with them all. We do NOT have cats at the rescue so cannot comment on how he would be with them. We have dog doors in the house and ISABELLA uses them to go out and play or to do her business, however, I do also have pee pads for the pups and smaller dogs and she does sometimes ues them, so it would be wise to expect the odd accident until she learns her new routine and to let you know she needs to go outside. ISABELLA would benefit from an active, fun family that has the time to work with her on her obedience and manners, who would take her on adventures and road trips and let her explore the sights, sounds and smells the world has to offer. She would benefit from a family that has the time to work with her on basic and advanced obedience training. By working together both ISABELLA and her humans can learn each others body language and personality, expectations and boundaries can be set and with self-training a stronger bond formed. We currently feed SPORTMIX Wholesomes Chicken Meal & Rice Formula, a 4* (a per www.dogfoodadvisor.com) GRAIN FREE food along with pro-bioitics and immune support supplements listed on the available dogs page! ISABELLA is available for adoption through Give a Dog a Home, German Shepherd Dog Rescue for an adoption fee of $500. This fee is not negotiable and is used to cover the rescue costs of pulling, vetting, health certificate, transport from Texas to Maine, monthly preventatives, supplements, food and anything else that is needed. If you are interested in adopting ISABELLA, please follow the link below to the adoption application and complete then submit. It generally takes 2-3 days to process applications, as long as we are able to speak to your vet and references. http://www.giveadogahome-sanantonio.org/adoption-application.html ISABELLA is located at the rescue in Sebec, Maine.

    As much as I love this gurl, I know she is not hapoy living confined to a basement. We moved back home to Maine from Florida 2 months ago. We were hoping she would get along with the family dogs and kids pretty smoothly. She loves all the adults and most kids but still cant hang with the many dogs up here. She also has been stuck in a cold basement on a daily basis because of this. I have had her ever since someone tied her to our porch. She is really a lovable cuddler who loves walks, car rides and playing fetch. She absolutely loves her sweater. Anubis absolutely hates cats and has been socialized in the past with my other dog King Kong. ...

    Zoey is a sweet 6 year old Brindle Blue nose pure bred Pit Bull. She has been good with other dogs.

She knows several tricks.. She was the runt of the litter .. so she's small as far as pit bulls go.. approx. 50lbs. Shes super sweet

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered 

    Hello, my name is Courage and I am a 3 year old pit bull. I was rescued from a bad place in Miami, but I am by no means a bad dog! In fact, in the 3 months I have been living in the shelter, I have become a staff and volunteer favorite! I'm the perfect dog for you if you're the type of person that has a daily routine, I don't like a lot of chaos in my life. I love every person that I meet, but would prefer not to live with younger children because they are so unpredictable. I don't like cats, and I am dog selective so you would have to bring your current dogs to come meet me before taking me home. Come see me and I'll be sure to give you ...

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.

lnteresting Pit Bull Trivia Low-Cost Maine 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.
