Rescue Me ID: 14-09-13-00311Cyrus (male)

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hello my name is Cyrus and I'm a neutered three year old happy boy. I had a loving owner, but because she was homeless, she no longer could care for me. I love to play and go for walks. Most of all, I love people. I love to lay in the sun and watch the world. Since I've been in this shelter, I developed a dislike for other dogs. I'm a very smart boy and I know basic commands, so all the people say that with training I can learn to like other dogs again. I really need to find either a forever home or a nice RESCUE group that can help me with my training and adoption. Please help me get the heck out of this shelter.....not sure how much time I ...

Rescue Me ID: 14-09-10-00066Bella (female)

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

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

    This is Bella. She is a beautiful 2.5 year old 50lb purebred pit bull. She is full of energy and LOVES attention and to play. She can stay perfectly busy chewing on one of her Kongs, nylabones, or antlers, but always prefers to be in the company of someone. She is full of energy and upon being greeted, will shower you with kisses and lick you as she continues her happy dance. The ONLY problem/downside to her happiness is she has 'happy tail' and has periodically split open the tip of her tail from wagging so much, and knocking it on things! It is also for this reason she may be best without an infant/baby around, simply because she tends to ... (Read More)whack anything/everything with her constantly happy tail. Bella knows basic commands and particularly after she calms down responds and recalls well. She would benefit from more work in this area. She loves being outside and enjoys running circles around the doggie park with whatever pack happens to be there on that day. Bella is a sweet sweet girl and deserves to have nothing but the best life possible. Another dog, and lots of room to run and play would be PERFECT for this sweetheart. (Less)

    This is Apollo. Hes a 4 year old Blue Nose Pitbull and he's an adorable little boy. He loves to go on long walks and run and chase things around. He enjoys the company of others and loves to cuddle up with others. He can sleep all day and be calm or he can be excited and play all day. He is obedient but he does like to do things on his own every once in a while. He does require attention because he suffers from bad anxiety of being left alone. But as long as he is looked after had his belly scratched and lots of kisses he'll be a great companion.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Needs Vaccinations, Aggressive, Fearful/Anxious 

    Zooey is 1.5 years old. We have had Zooey for 3 months now and she has adjusted well to our family. However, we have a very active household with neighbor kids coming and going and Zooey is highly aggressive with strangers. She has nipped at a couple of kids while I was in her presence and watching her every move and the children that she nipped at. She was not provoked, startled or threatened in any way. She then is aggressive and growls and tries to nip at us while we put her in her kennel to stop her behavior. We do not physically discipline her. She gets a ton of attention from us as my wife is a stay at home/homeschool mom. She is only ... (Read More)in her kennel for discipline and bedtime. She has alot of time outside to play and she gets alot of attention and playtime with our whole family of 5. She has such a sweet personality otherwise and it is so hard to think of giving her up because her pros outweigh the cons but I cannot have an aggressive animal in a home with children and visitors that I can't trust her to be good around. We have spoke to several non kill shelters and they have refused to take her because they can't rehome an animal who has shown aggressive behavior. I have also contacted the local MSPCA and they have confirmed that any shelter will kill her upon reception. We do not want her to die because we do see marked improvement from her and don't want to give up on her and want her happy and satisfied. We thank you for your time looking at our situation. Please help us figure out what to do with the fun, playful, sweet, lovey girl. Thank you. (Less)

    Ice is a 2-yr-old, male pit bull. He was rescued from a high-kill shelter in Miami a year ago and has since been bouncing between foster homes and boarding facilities. Currently he's being boarded at Best Pet Hotel & Daycare in Hollywood, FL. Ice is great with people, well-behaved, already neutered, very intelligent, and good with most dogs (not sure about cats). He had a formal temperament test conducted and passed with flying colors. Here are some comments from his past foster: 'He spent a few months in my home where he was around dogs ranging from 4 pounds to about 60 male and females. He is crate trained, potty trained, knows sit ... (Read More)command. Loves to go on walks and loves to cuddle in bed and the couch with his humans. He is a good dog who is more gorgeous in person than any of these pictures show. He also loves to jog and use the treadmill.'

Tigger was evaluated for temperament and he did great! He is crate trained and house trained. He would make a great addition to an active family.

    Honey has come along way! She was first taken to a shelter in NYC when her owner had to give her and her brother up for personal reasons. her brother was adopted and she was left behind. Honey waited and waited..nobody came. She put on deathrow (to be euthanized)by the ACC. DARL's team came through with the help of social media friends and saved this beautiful girl. It took about 3 weeks for Honey to adjust to her new suroundings with her foster dad Tommy. He having another dog was a challenge. It took a little time for Honey to be in the same room with Tommy's pup. But, they did it. She is now ready for a slow introduction with other ... (Read More)dogs. We require an experienced owner to adopt Honey. Honey loves walks, going fishing, camping, car rides or just snuggling up with you.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    This is Buddy! Buddy is an extremely sweet and affectionate pit bull who is on the bigger side, at 72 lbs. We estimate he is about 3 years old. Buddy is an incredibly fast learner. He learns commands very easily and can already 'sit', 'stay', 'come', and go 'in the crate'. Buddy has also learned to wait politely for his meals, and accepts treats very gently and gingerly. Buddy loves to play fetch and chew on his rope, but he is also very happy to snore the day away on his bed after a good walk (he is pictured above in his favorite sleeping position). His very favorite thing in the world is to roll around on his back in the grass and ... (Read More)let you rub his belly. This will inevitably end with him falling asleep with a big grin on his face. Buddy would be a wonderful companion to someone who wants to make him their one and only pet. He gets very excited around other dogs and it will take some work for him to learn how to ignore other animals on walks. Given his history of abandonment, this sweet guy gets anxious when left alone for too long so is hoping to find someone who can spend a lot of time with him. Do to his size and still developing manners, he would be best in a home without young children. (Less)

Crate trained: yes This is April, but we saved her in August from a high kill shelter in the South. April is now being locally fostered. She loves other dogs and is fine with cats too! She is very sweet..shy at first, but extremely loving once she feels comfortable. She is a gentle girl who would be fine for a family with respectful children. She wants to be with her family, she stays close by. She loves her toys and to play with her fosters dog. Loves ... (Read More)walks and car rides and exploring the world around her. She is smart, she progressed on the house training in less than a weeks time to no accidents in the last few days. She knows her name and sits for a treat. She is eager to please. She sleeps the night in the crate without peeping until her foster mom gets her first thing in the morning to go out. She came out of quarantine with some missing fur but home life and grain free food suits her well as the fur has almost completely filled in. We believe it was poor nutrition and stress as all test were negative for mites, etc. She is a gem and her foster mom and dad are going to miss her! A great family dog.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    My name was Natalia but my foster dad calls me his little Natty Boo - and I like it!. I am 55 pound of love. The world is a new and exciting place for me. I spent the first few years of my life in a crate, so I am just enjoying my life now. I can meet new people and see new things and smell the flowers - I LOVE flowers!! I would do best in a quiet home. I get nervous when I hear voices like when you neighbors are having a party. I would not do well in an apartment complex or similar setting where I can hear the neighbors. I also don't like thunder or firecrackers - but be honest - who does?? I have poor depth perception due to an old ... (Read More)untreated infection so I sometimes becomes nervous because I cannot see how far away things actually are. It is hard when you can hear things and smell them but not see them very well. I barked at a sunflower once until my foster dad picked me up so I could sniff it. Then we were friends! I think the car is magical. I LOVE going in the car. I could be your co-pilot. I would be better than GPS. We could go places where we can discover new smells. Birds and flowers are wonderful new things to me, so strolls in the woods - or even just some time in your garden - would make my day complete! Right now I have a playmate and I LOVE having a big goofy submissive boy that I can push around and play with. What girl doesn't like to push around her boyfriend, am I right? We play until we are both exhausted, then pass out in our beds. We have so much fun that I think I would like a home with a big boy. I am not so good with other girls because I don't like when they touch my toys. I will share with boys, though. I tends to chase cats, though not in an aggressive way. I wants to sniff them and maybe play with them but the cats don't seem to want to play back. I am a special gal...that people are just drawn to! Please come meet me!

Rescue Me ID: 14-03-15-00491Tarzan - lovable goof (male)

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 am fully house and crate trained and am highly ball motivated. I love balls of all varieties: tennis, rubber, squeaky. If you can throw it, I'll play fetch for hours! 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, ... (Read More)my favorite destinations are the local parks, where I can meet up with my doggie friends :) Off-leash, I love running and playing with other dogs. I'm a gentle giant who willingly shares toys and lets small dogs and puppies call the shots....which make me a popular play buddy! At home, I settle down quickly. I always enjoy playing with my people, but when they're busy 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. My life has gotten so much better these past few months, but I still experience some anxiety when walking on leash in busy areas. Luckily, my foster mom recognized that this type of fearful reactivity is common for a former stray and she reached out to a behaviorist who is helping me learn to self-soothe, draw comfort and confidence from the human-dog relationship, and direct my energy towards safe, productive behaviors. If you would like to learn more about my training and/or help to finance it, please visit my online fundraiser at: http://www.youcaring.com/pet-expenses/help-tarzan-get-the-training-he-needs-to-find-a-forever-home/158853#sthash.6Jy9tnXW.dpuf I like kids, but because I'm big and energetic, I'm looking for a home that doesn't have any kids under age ten. At heart, I am a sweet loving boy looking for a life long friend...could that be you???

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Hi! My name is Stella Bella and I am one of the sweetest dogs you will ever meet! I absolutely adore being with my people! I will follow you all around the house just to be by your side- but I'm also independent enough to respect when you need your space. I am around 7 years old but you would never know it by the way I play! I LOVE toys. Give me a toy bin full of squeaky toys and stuffed chewy things and I am in heaven. I have plenty of energy to go for long jogs with you if you are the type but am just as content to stop and smell the flowers on walks. I'm really the best mix of personality you could ask for- energetic and fun outside and ... (Read More)cuddly and calm indoors. I would love to follow you around the house and lay softly snoring at your feet(or by your side) all day. I am so quiet and gentle, you might not even know I am there! I may even roll over for some tummy rubs (okay, that's not a maybe, I will definitely want tummy rubs!). I am totally house-trained, almost never bark, and am okay hanging out on the couch all day, even if you aren't home. My absolute favorite thing(after belly rubs and stopping to smell the flowers) is car rides! If you are someone who needs a good navigator in your passenger seat, I'm your dog! I had a rough life before coming into rescue, but despite being treated so poorly, I am still the nicest, sweetest girl you will ever meet! I need to work on my leash manners, but I do great with a good harness. I am already spayed, completely house-trained, and up to date with my shots. I am great with most other dogs and stellar(get it? Stella-r!) with cats, but I would also be content to be the only recipient of your attention! I know how to sit, and lie down and I am a quick learner. In one foster home I learned meal-time manners(sit before breakfast! sit before dinner!) and impressed my foster mom with taking a seat(unasked!) in the hallway when I saw her pick up my harness and leash. I really just want to make you happy and spend time with you! I have waited such a long time to find the right family who will love me as much as I love them! My foster parent is willing to answer any questions that you may have about me.

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. A disproportionate number of Pit Bulls are put down in major American cities each year.
