Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    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. ... (Read More)There are youtube videos of her playing at amysaba200.in a perfect world I would love to maintain contact with the person who adopts her to ensure she stays healthy, safe and happy. Im in the Berwick region (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-09-16-00335PIPER (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 PIPER, HER LOCATION AND ADOPTION OPTIONS. PIPER is an America Stafford-shire Terrier mix who is spayed, rabies, core vaccines, heart-worm tested negative, de-wormed and micro-chipped. She has an estimated date of birth of 8th January 2016 and weighs approximately 20 pounds. PIPER was saved from a high kill shelter in Texas where she had been adopted and returned FOUR times. This poor girl, through no fault of her own was not given the chance by a family that has the time and understanding to work with her. PIPER is a great girl, she is extremely affectionate, ... (Read More)desperate to please and is very responsive. She does get very excited, is a high energy girl, with little manners and does tend to mouth. She also has slight food aggression. When PIPER first got to the rescue she would charge across the room and just jump on the sofa or chair, no matter if I was sat on it or not, she is an expert counter surfer and does mouth a lot. Mouthing is obviously a concern since her breed is labelled as being aggressive so any kind of mouthing will be seen as aggression, when all it is, is that she has not been taught that it is not acceptable. PIPER is learning pretty quickly to not charge and jump on the sofa, I correct her when she mouths and she is learning that growling and guarding the food is not tolerated. I free feed at the rescue and not all dogs are used to sharing their food, so this is a big learning curve for them, but it doesn't generally take them long to learn and understand that there is no need to guard the food, but it is something that should be noted and care taken when in her new home. She has never shown any aggression towards humans, she is a complete love bug, who is extremely responsive and I think with one on one training and time, she will quickly learn basic and advanced obedience and learn how to behave, she just has never been taught. As mentioned PIPER is very high energy and she needs to be with an active family who is able to provide a release for not just physical exercise but mental exercise. A tired mind is equally important as a tired body. I think PIPER would excel at sporting games like agility, she would make an awesome running / hiking partner, or anything that her humans are involved in. Without the energy release she is going to get frustrated and up to mischief and thus problems will occur. PIPER is great with kids, small kids would need to be watched they don't get knocked over when she is running around, but if she did knock them over it would be an accident. Of course children, as with all dogs need to be supervised and understand that dogs are not toys and to be given their own space and let alone when they don't want to play. PIPER is great with other dogs and loves to chase and wrestle with them of all ages and sizes. With an active family who has time, patience and the love to give this girl she will make an awesome new family member. She needs someone who understands the breed and how people react towards them. A family that will never move to a state or city or home that bans or treats dogs in a negative way and appreciate and respect that not every one likes the breed. PIPER has a lot to give her family in lover, affection, fun and making lots of wonderful memories. She is waiting patiently for her perfect family to find her. 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! We do not have cats at the rescue so we are unable to say how any of our dogs would react around cats. PIPER is available for adoption through Give a Dog a Home, German Shepherd Dog Rescue for an adoption fee of $250. 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 feel that you have the heart and home to give this precious stunning girl a wonderful life, please go to our website, under the APPLICATION tab, complete, then submit the APPLICATION. Our process takes around 2-4 days, and ensuring your references are aware that we will be calling, could speed up the process. Once you have been approved, we discuss any questions in regards to the dog you are wanting to adopt, then you complete and submit the contract, make payment and then we can work out the pick up / transport arrangements. Please do NOT submit an application if you are not looking to take home a new best friend within the next few weeks. PIPER 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 (Less)

    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

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Not Good with Cats 
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 ... (Read More)plenty of kisses and snuggles! (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.

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. 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.
