Rescue Me ID: 14-04-18-00255Patches (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Hello I am Patches, an 8 year old gorgeous girl with so much love to give. I love nothing more than cuddling with my foster mom or foster brothers ( an 8 year old rottie and an 8 year old beagle). I sit very nicely for treats and am very gentle taking one from foster mom's hand. I have no feeding aggression even if one of the other dogs comes to my bowl. I previously lived with a two year old who would take my bones away while I was chewing them so I would just go find another one. I also let her pile her toys on top of me while I was sleeping. I am housebroken, can sit very nicely and I love to be with my people. I sleep in the room ... (Read More)with my foster mom. I do not chew or destroy anything in her house. I am not crate trained and just sleep on my bed when she is gone. Even though I am 8 I do love to go for a long walk or run around the fenced in yard. A previous foster home had six cats and I was fearful of the large ones but whined and chased the smaller ones in playful manner. I have never met a rabbit so I don't know how I would be in a house with them. If you are looking for a forever friend that just wants to cuddle, lick your face and love you I may be the one for you. If you are interested in finding out more about me please fill out an application on our website http://www.brokentailrescue.org/adoption-application. Patches is being fostered in Leominster Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable, so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix.

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

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

    Tuukka is a great dog unfortunately we can not keep him due to new jobs that do not allow us to have any time home with him so he is in his crate for long periods of time. He loves to play but also loves to cuddle( thinks he is a lap dog). He is great with kids just at first gets excited. But with a little more training and being around more people that excitement won't be so much. Loves to run and go for walks he is very submissive when other dogs walk by him he lays on the ground until other dog is passed him. We do not want him to go to a shelter or to be put down so we are looking for a great loving home.

Animal ID: 1152Lola (female)

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

Health: Vaccinations Current 

    Hello! I'm Lola, a 2-3 year old bundle of LOVE! My favorite activities are snuggling, getting pats and giving kisses. If you're into this, we're a match made in heaven! I am about 55lbs, if you're wondering. I'm good with other dogs, having lived with both males and females. And, cats don't seem to bother me. I have been cooped up in a house for quite some time, with no real attention from people, so please forgive my exuberance! I am just SO HAPPY! I seem to be house trained and am learning about the crate, which I don't mind. My foster parents are teaching me all the rules, and they tell me about this thing called 'obedience ... (Read More)school'. Sounds awesome! Showing off and getting treats... What's not to like?! I can't wait to find my forever home and forever people, won't you consider making me yours? Lola is being fostered in Ludlow, MA and her adoption fee is $300. (Less)

Animal ID: 14-04-12-00328Tanner (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Tanner is high energy and needs the right owner for him to be a good pet. He is obedient kid friendly and very sweet and submissive to his owner. He is Neutered but is still dog aggressive when he gets jealous. It would be best if he was the only dog. I currently have three other dogs and cant give Tanner the attention he deserves. His major behavior issue is separation anxiety he must be crated when you are not home. He does not react well to loud aggressive people or being yelled at so who ever has him has to be responsible and nice a person that is willing to do what's best for him. He loves running around in the woods and has a high prey ... (Read More)drive so if your outdoorsy or a hunter he would be good for you. (Less)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    This handsome boy is Goomba! Goomba was found as a stray on the streets of Philadelphia and was brought into Animal Care and Control in North Philly. He found a home pretty quickly but couldn't stay there after he started getting into some scuffles with the resident dog. Goomba is an incredibly sweet dog who absolutely loves being close to his humans, chewing on Kongs and taking up as much room as possible on the couch. He does need some help with his basic manners (he's a puppy after all!) but he is a fast learner and is improving daily. Goomba would do best in an active home where someone can help him burn off his puppy energy! He is ... (Read More)about a year old, neutered, and roughly 70 pounds (although he could stand to lose a few of those). Goomba does not get along with other dogs and needs to be an only pet. He doesn't understand how big he is so he should be placed with adults only or older kids who have dog experience. He is a big, lovable goofball just looking for a family who will appreciate his unconditional love! (Less)

    Lyrix is about 9 months old she is Pitbull/Lab mix. She is a Very sweet dog however we have had a German Shepard for about 10 years and they are bothe females. The German shepard is Very Aggressive with Lyrix and we need to keep them apart or the German Shepard will attack Lyrix. We have done well keeping them separated but since my grandson who is 3 moved into my home it is hard to keep them apart. We have put locks on doors so my grandson would not open the doors and let the dogs near each other. We feel that Lyrix could get out somehow and we do NOT want her getting Hurt by the German Shepard. Lyrix needs a Good home, she is very sweet, ... (Read More)gets excited when she 1st sees you, jumps up at you and then is calm. (Less)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Vangie is a sweet eight month old pitbull mix who is solid white except for the adorable black speckles on her ears. She was surrendered to us by her owners when they couldn't afford to care for her any more. Vangie previously lived with kids, cats and other dogs with no issues. She would benefit greatly from some confidence boosting training. A confident dog friend would also be good for her as she really enjoys other dogs. Vangie needs to work on not jumping up but she just loves people so much that she just wants to say hello to everyone. She has already learned sit and she waits patiently for treats. Vangie hasn't been crate trained ... (Read More)in the past but her foster home is working on teaching her to appreciate her crate. (As I type this, she is contently sleeping in the crate.) She is also acclimating to a leash very well. Please stay tuned for updates as we learn more about Vangie. She currently weighs 37 lbs. If you are interested in finding out more about Vangie, please fill out an application on our website by copying and pasting the following link into your browser. http://www.brokentailrescue.org/adoption-application/ Vangie is being fostered in Millbury and the adoption fee is $325. Please understand that we will not place bully breeds in homes with same gender bullies. 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. (Less)

We also have 2 cats whom Kanna is friendly with but she is a bit rambunctious with them. I highly recommend Kanna go to a home where she will be a happy ONLY. Thank you for considering our beautiful and very special girl...

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hello I'm Tarzan :) I'm a handsome 3 year old boy looking for my forever family! I was found as a stray and spent four long months in a Worcester shelter. While I was a favorite with the staff, the stress of the kennel was just too much for me. Thankfully, I've been moved into a foster home and am now enjoying the comforts of quiet living. A warm bed, full meals, and a regular cuddle buddy are significant improvements! I guess you could say I'm a 70lb surfer-dude with a go-with-the-flow attitude. I just take life one day at a time. Right now, I am exploring my interests. So far, I've found that I love rubber balls, playing hide-and-seek ... (Read More)with toys, and taking long walks with my human friends. With the help of a harness, I am learning not to pull when I go out....but sometimes it's hard because I just get so excited!!! I haven't tried jogging yet but my foster mom promised to take me soon. Honestly, I think I'll make a perfect running buddy...hunky, strong, and quick :) Since leaving the shelter, I have shown a lot of interest in other dogs but my excitement can sometimes be overwhelming to others. My foster mom is helping me to approach my playmates in a more relaxed fashion but it would probably be best for me to be the only dog in a house with older kids and/or adults. I am fully housetrained and food/toy motivated. For a cookie, I will gladly show you how nicely I can sit as well as the other commands that I am still working on (like down, stay, heel, come, and wait). I have always been well-behaved in the car. In fact, if you look into the back you might see me practicing my surfing skills...even when the roads are rough, I can maintain my balance on all fours while I watch the scenery go by. Right now, my favorite destinations are the local parks, ponds, and of course, pet stores, where I like to pick out my own toys and treats :) At home, I settle down quickly. While I always enjoy playing with my people, I am a self-sufficient guy and can be content entertaining myself. Usually, I'll toss my toys around for a while, stretch out in some funny positions (doggie yoga), and then eventually curl up in one of my beds for a good long nap. At heart, I am a chill dude looking for a life long friend...could that be you???

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Needs Vaccinations, Aggressive 

    In October 2012 I 'rescued' this dog from a really bad environment. When we first took him it was suppose to be temporary but next thing I knew it had been a year. I am now going thru a divorce and my husband can't take him. So now I am making the effort to re-home him. He was about 4-6 months old when we got him. And we have had him for about a year and half. But I honestly dont know an exact age. He was not house trained and had really bad food aggression. He will still show aggression to my other dog from time to time, over a toy or treat, but has never showed it towards a person. He is house trained and sits by the door when he ... (Read More)wants to go out. Sometimes even if he doesn't have to go to the bathroom but just wants to play. He is crate trained and is crated when I leave the house, but sleeps with me at night. He is a great snuggler but is just as content down stairs on the couch if I let him. But here is the 'catch': I want to make sure he is going to someone who can take care of him FINANCALLY. I AM NOT ASKING FOR ANY MONEY TO BE GIVEN TO ME He hasn't had any shots that I know of and I have absolutely no paper work for him. I will bring him to meet you in your home. This way I can see what his new living situation will be like and how he reacts to it. If you decide you want him to me a new member of your family, I will want a vet to verify an upcoming appt before I hand him off for good. He will need rabies shots to get registered anyway; this is just a way for me to be sure he will receive the care we have failed to give him. He is a very smart and loving dog that deserves a good home. He is a barker when someone comes to the door, and we haven't really broken him of jumping all together but we have tamed it a bit. With him will go a collar, leash, and large double door crate His name was diesel when we got him, but it really didn't fit, so we changed it to weasel, which is much more fitting to his personality. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you have or interest in meeting him. He is a little bigger now than in these pictures but still has the same build. He is the brown one To make matters worse for this pup he now has a cut on his tail from wagging it too much and too hard. I know from experience with my older dog, that its hard to heal and usually just gets worse until it needs to be amputated. I only have Saturdays off from work so unless you are within 40 minutes of Spencer MA it will have to be a weekend meet. If you are over 50 miles away, a gas donation would be appreciated but not required. (I drive a 13mpg truck) CHILDREN: I have not had him around anyone younger than 7. He is a jumper and might knock small ones over. CATS: I have never seen him with a cat, or other small animals. (Less)

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. 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.
