Rescue Me ID: 15-07-26-00189Coach (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    The classic Christmas song's refrain goes 'imagine my surprise, when I opened up my eyes, to see my hippo hero standing there!'. This sums up Coach! Coach is a nine month old, 60(?) pound lab mix puppy whose foster mom was expecting an eight year old lab mix. Coach has already won his foster parents' hearts after just two days in foster care. He is exuberant-as only a puppy excited by life in a home can be. Coach is polite with other animals; he play-bowed to one of his foster parents' resident cats, and wiggled his whole body while also cooling the house down a few degrees with the speed of his wagging tail as he and a foster brother ... (Read More)sniffed thru a baby-gate. We believe Coach will be equally polite with children. Coach has had no accidents in the house, and even knows 'sit'. He will need continued training to work on his manners. If you are looking for a dog sweet as summer berry pie, consider adding Coach to your home! f you are interested in finding out more about Coach, please fill out an application on our website by copying and pasting the following link into your browser: http://www.brokentailrescue.org/adoption-application/ Coach is being fostered in Framingham and the adoption fee is $300.

NOTE: Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable, so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label. We expect that all adopted dogs will enroll in a formal dog training class with their new owners. Obedience and training classes are an excellent way to learn more about your newly adopted dog, gain handling and training experience, and improve your relationship with your pet. (Less)

    My name is Liberty. I'm seven years old. Originally it was just me and daddy, but my daddy married my mommy and I'm jealous of mommy and daddy's young kids . I'm a great dog for a male companion or a couple. I like to lay in the yard and take short walks. I do not like the rain and prefer to stay out of the snow as I have a very short coat. I do not like other cats or dogs. I prefer to be number one. I would love to spend my time laying around with you and licking you to death!

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Sweet little Leila is a 3 year old pit mix weighing in at only 33 pounds. Leila was not given the best life initially and then was abandoned by her original owner. Well, sweet little Leila is a bit timid and fearful, particularly around men, but the good folks she had the fortune to end up with were able to get her potty trained and crate trained, and even taught her a few basic commands before seeking rescue help. Leila has seen a vet and, although a bit underweight, is in excellent health. She is now in foster getting the TLC she so deserves, and she is searching for her perfect forever home! Leila seems to find comfort in other dogs, ... (Read More)she's playfully curious about cats, and she is a doll with children. When afraid, her instinct is to recoil and move behind her most trusted human; she will approach on her own when she understands the individual in question is not a threat. Leila is also food-motivated and loves to connect with gentle humans. If you are interested in adopting Leila, please call 508-994-0220 or e-mail (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-06-28-00451Brock (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Look into Brock's eyes and you'll find it difficult to look away. Those big brown eyes have a soulful look to them, and when coupled with his white bib and white paws, make all who seem him want to know more. Brock is a young pittie mix. He is approximately one and a half years old and sixty(60) pounds. Brock has been in our rescue for a few weeks now, and his foster mom says he gives the best to hugs. Truly Brock loves: he loves to kiss, he loves to play. What more is there to know?! Brock is excellent in his crate, he goes in 'like a little angel'. He is not a fussy eater, which gives him points over some of his foster siblings! ... (Read More)Brock is sweet with all people, so would make a great dog for any family. Young children may get knocked over by his tail wagging, but next comes a big Brock kiss. In his foster home, Brock nicely shares space with the resident cats. Beyond loving on his people, Brock's favorite activity is playing hard with his foster brother who is also a pittie mix. They have so much fun being goofy bundles of energy together! Being a young dog still, Brock needs a home who is willing to work on consistency in house training. His general love of food, and love for life, will be useful tools for that skill. In sum: Brock is a sweet young dog with an irresistible face, who is being fostered in Framingham, MA.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Sadie is a very cuddly, loving girl and has been a great dog the past four years. She loves to play with her bones and go running. She has a great personality and really needs a loving home with a big yard. It is unfair to keep her in the city and with my job and working in downtown Boston I feel she would be happier with a yard and a family that can spend the time with her she deserves.

Migo is approx 1 year old, neutered, micro-chipped, utd on vaccinations, and is completely house and crate trained! He is great with adults and kids, but not known around cats.

Rescue Me ID: 15-05-25-00111Maggie Mae (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Not Good with Cats 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi, my name is Maggie Mae and I am a sweet and playful 4 year old American Staffordshire terrier who is looking for my forever home. My coat is a deep rich chestnut color - I am very much a redhead with a personality to match. I am very strong and sturdy (I weigh in at 65 pounds!) but my personality is my best feature. My foster mom tells me I am so beautiful and good that I won't be looking for a home for long. I hope that is true - I really want a forever family of my own. I am strong-minded and my ideal home is with a kind, experienced, and confident person who will manage my environment to make me feel safe and loved. I can get worried ... (Read More)at loud noises, really windy days, and strange men-- I know it sounds silly from a big dog like me, but it just stresses me out. So if we could live someplace quiet, without a lot of people going in and out, that would be perfect. I often feel more comfortable around women, so it would be totally fine if it were just the two of us girls! I hate cats. Really. My foster mom says it is not polite to say that but I think it is good to be honest. I am also choosey about my doggy friends. I have lived with dogs before and some I got along with and others - not so much. It is important that we give each other some space. As is typical of my breed I love my family and want to keep them safe. It is important to introduce new people properly so I understand that people coming to our home are friends. I know sit, stay, sit pretty, and wave. I am perfectly housebroken and crate trained, though I never have to sleep in a crate because I am so well behaved. My favorite 'den' is under my foster dad's desk. I like to sleep in the bathroom at night - sometimes I even close the door. Every girl needs some quiet time!

Rescue Me ID: 15-05-22-00551Nancy (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Nancy currently lives with her family which includes a newborn child. We have cared for her since she was about 6 months old. She now weighs 50 pounds and is a little over 3 years old. Nancy loves people -- she is VERY excited to meet you, but calms down quickly and is a sweetheart. She is non-destructive as long as she is not confined to a cage or closed off area. When Nancy does not feel trapped, she can be left alone with no fear of destruction. We can leave her all day at home alone (full run of the house), and nothing is out of place, no accidents, or any trouble. Nancy knows how to sit, lay down, wait to be told 'ok' before eating ... (Read More)her meals, and runs over to her bed when told 'go home!', and will gladly 'touch' your hand (no matter how high you hold it!) when told to 'touch!'. She is also completely house trained, and can last a full work day+ when needed. We love Nancy very much and are heartbroken to let her go. She should be with someone who is patient and loving and who can put in the time with her to get her comfortable in her new home. We are looking for the best possible home for her. Nancy takes anxiety medication. She should continue this medication in her new home, as it has helped her a lot. We rescued her from a neglectful/abusive situation. Anyone interested in Nancy should support non-painful training techniques. Nancy would make a good pet for someone that does not have other pets or young children. Nancy has never hurt a child and is very gentle and relaxed around our newborn, but we think a young child who doesn't have boundaries may over-stimulate Nancy. To see more videos/pictures of Nancy, you can view her Instagram account: https://instagram.com/nancysgrams/ You can see she can be a loving and wonderful dog. Please note that the descriptions on the photos are meant to be humorous and not necessarily an accurate representations of how Nancy acts or thinks :) (Less)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Senior

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

    Hi, I'm Star! I am a friendly, 13 years young pit bull mix whose owner could no longer take care of me. I am on the smaller size for a pittie, about 40 lbs. Well, okay, I may have done some emotional eating-- we've all been there. My foster mom describes me as a brindle meatloaf, but I'm sure she just means I'm a reliable standby! I am pretty fantastic because I'm already housebroken and I walk nicely on a leash. I love car rides too! I get along great with other dogs, and would be happy to live with dog savvy cats. Recently I met a toddler and took the offered cookie from the kid's tiny fingers very gently. My foster mom was so ... (Read More)impressed she said I could live with any kids! I am sweet and cheerful and in good health for my age. Okay, brag time, I am very bright and quite the escape artist. I can climb chain link fences and open the car windows from the inside. (I thought my foster mom needed a little excitement in her day. Just trying to help!) I'm good at escaping from crates too. So my perfect home would have a high fence that isn't chain link, and owners who are good at keeping temptation away. I am spayed, up to date on my vaccinations, and microchipped, and I'm so ready for that new home! Maybe it's with you? If you are interested in finding out more about Star, please fill out an application on our website by copying and pasting the following link into your browser: http://www.brokentailrescue.org/adoption-application/ Star is being fostered in Framingham and the adoption fee is $50.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Abused/Neglected 

    Blackie is a very sweet, loving dog that has had a very difficult, sad life. She was found on the streets of TX, left for dead. We believe she was used as dog bait and then discarded like trash when the fight was over. She was taken to the vet and rec'd all the medical needed and once she was healthy, was transported to boarding. Blackie has known no love in her life. No petting...No walks, No cuddling on the couch with a companion that loves her. All she has known is to be beaten by humans and attacked by dogs. She has come so far and now needs someone to show her that life can be good. Please, this sweet girl needs to know what it's like ... (Read More)to be loved. She will be good with dogs but NO dogs recommended because of her past. She is still living in boarding in TX but will be transported anywhere to someone that will treat this girl right. Please, she's waited long enough. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-10-06-00600Maddie (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Hi, I'm Maddie! I've had many names over my short 2.5 years but when you say Maddie, I'm ready to listen. Not to brag, but I am extremely smart. I am house-trained, crate-trained, and know a slue of commands; sit, down, paw, wait. I'm willing to learn more too if you have a treat, a toy, or some love- I'm not picky. I also love walks and can go for miles and miles. I never pull on my leash because I want to be right next to you the whole time, not in front. What kind of walk would it be if I'm not even next to you?! I used to live with dogs and cats in my last foster home and loved it! I live with just humans now, which is pretty ... (Read More)great too because I get all the lap space! I'm only 45lbs so obviously I fit on your lap. I'm a little weary of strangers coming into my house (shouldn't we all be?) but once my foster parent gives the okay, I'll be their best friend. Especially if they have food or toys. My favorite games are tug of war and fetch. I get pretty into it, but once my foster parents says 'drop it' I know it's time to let go. I get really excited about play time, so much so that my whole body wags and my tail whips around really fast. It could definitely knock down a small child so older children may be best for me to play with. Moving is a hassle, so I'd really love a home to grow up in. Preferably a place where we can be really active and practice my commands! If you are interested in finding out more about Maddie, please fill out an application on our website by copying and pasting the following link into your browser: http://www.brokentailrescue.org/adoption-application/ Sage is being fostered in Framingham and the adoption fee is $300.

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Have you been lamenting the lack of girl-centered super hero movies? Quick learning self starter seeks to obtain a permanent position as family member in your home. Skills include being versatile as children's playmate, including honored tea-party guest, first mate on a pirate's ship, and superhero. Generally up for participating in adventure! Also seeking position as expert kitchen floor cleaner. Interested? My name is Callie and I'm a 50lb black lab mix. I am young at heart, but the vet thinks I'm between 9 and 11 years old. Though my fur may be graying it's like the saying goes: you are only as old as you feel! I have lots of energy: ... (Read More)I go hiking up Mt Wachussett with my foster mom almost every week! I always walk faster than her because I know what's waiting at the top of the mountain: CUDDLES! See, my age does not get in the way of my eagerness to participate in fun activities with you and I love EVERYTHING! Need a traveling companion? Car rides are my favorite and I am an excellent co-pilot! Need to get outside for some exercise? Let's go for walks around your neighborhood, or continue my tradition of hikes up Mt Wachussett! Prefer to have quiet inside leisure time? I love to play with my toys or cuddle with you after your long day! I'm always happy to have kids around to play with. I have a keen sensitivity to the world around me, which makes me an ideal companion for those learning to navigate the world, after all, I have a decade of worldly wisdom to share in my deep eyes, and wagging tail. I'm super smart, though my foster mom says not brag. Even so, since coming to live with her I have mastered 'sit', "stay", "down" and I even learned how to ring a bell when I need to go relieve myself outside! Recently I have been going to classes where I am learning "place" and also working on how to behave around other dogs. While I am getting better at ignoring other dogs in my vicinity on walks, I would prefer to be the only furry friend in your home. I have been patiently waiting for my furever family for almost two years because I know good things come to those who wait. Nothing would make my smile broader and brighter than having my own home and my own family. My unconditional love and gratitude would be all yours.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Pit Bull in Massachusetts
    Pit Bull Dogs can make good pets in Massachusetts 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 Massachusetts Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Some people believe that Pit Bulls are identical to what Bulldogs were in the past. 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.
