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 hard to look away. His big brown eyes have a soulful look to them, and when coupled with his white bib and white paws, brings the viewer to want to know more. Brock is a young pittie mix. He is approximately one and a half years old. Brock is brand new to our rescue, but already his foster mom says he loves to hug he 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's not a fussy eater which gives him points over some of his foster siblings! Brock's child and cat compatibility are currently unknown, but ... (Read More)will be updated as soon as we know more about him. 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.

Rescue Me ID: 15-06-19-00269Sadie (female)

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.

Rescue Me ID: 15-06-15-00216Mack (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    This is Mack he is about a 4 or 5 year old pit bull and is just a big goof! He loves to explore the yard and loves to chase a tennis ball. Mack was picked up by animal control and no one has come to claim him. He is up to date on vaccinations and will be neutered prior to adoption. Mack does get excited easily and can be a bit jumpy but he is working on controlling that and learning that sitting instead of jumping gets him what he wants. He is a fast learner and some of the things he is working on are his manners, how to settle and how to walk on a leash. He is house trained. He is very friendly and loves to meet new people and is good with ... (Read More)other dogs but does get excited and wants to play, but learns quickly if the other dog does not want to play. He has not been around cats so we don't know how he would react. He would be best with older children because he gets excited easily and could easily knock a small child over. Mack loves to work for hot dogs or tennis balls and loves to go in the kiddie pool or drink from a sprinkler. He is just a happy go lucky guy. (Less)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Migo is a beautiful pup who is absolutely adored by his foster family, who say he is one of the sweetest and most hilarious characters they have ever met. Migo loves to run and play ball, and can spend hours cuddled up for movie night. Migo is a happy boy who is eager to please, responds well to positive reinforcement, and will do anything for a treat! Migo is approx 1 year old, neutered, micro-chipped, utd on vaccinations, and is completely house and crate trained! Migo was born partially blind, but it never gets in the way of enjoying life. He's rarely frightened or deterred by obstacles he encounters, he simply finds a new way ... (Read More)around, wagging his tail the time thru. Because of Migo's sight issues, he's unfortunately had a couple of encounters with dogs he couldn't recognize as unfriendly, so he feels more relaxed, safe and happy as the only dog in the household. Migo deserves a wonderful life in a loving and active home with a family that has time to play as well as cuddle. MIGO IS BEING FOSTERED IN BOSTON, BUT HIS FAMILY IS WILLING TO MAKE A LONG DRIVE TO FIND THE PERFECT HOME! (Less)

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! If you are interested in learning more about Maggie Mae, please fill out an application on our website by copying and pasting the following link into your browser. http://www.brokentailrescue.org/adoption-application/ Maggie Mae is being fostered in Framingham, and the adoption fee is $300. "Like" Broken Tail Rescue on Facebook! 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)

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    Age: Young Adult

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

    Murphy is an incredibly loving, dorky boy and it is absolutely breakingly heart to post this. He is dog aggressive, and I don't have the skills to give him what he needs. (Training, lots of walks, etc) He's an excellent snuggler, and a giant love bug. He's always been well behaved towards my nieces. He adores people, in general. We've had one too many times of dog aggressive behavior, and I'm finally admitting that I can't give him what he needs. I'm devestated, but committed to finding him a wonderful new home with someone that can love and properly care for him.

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.

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 the 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 ... (Read More)pretty 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!

Rescue Me ID: 13-10-22-00288Scooter (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Scooter is a lovable, very playful 6-year old female pittie that is an owner surrender. UNTIL SOMEONE STEPS UP SHE WILL BE SITTING IN THE SHELTER. She has separation anxiety, and would do best with someone who only works part time, or from home. Is good with dogs her own size and larger that can tolerate rough play, but would be best in a small dog and cat-free home! Scooter deserves a place to lay her head and be loved and attended to. If you are interested in fostering or adopting, please email katiem@survivortails.org

Rescue Me ID: 13-09-24-00230Callie-Super Girl! (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Senior

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

    Have you been lamenting the lack of girl-centered super hero movies? Hi! My name is Callie and I am a 50lb black lab mix. Let me into your heart and I will be sure to swoop in to save the day! I am young at heart, but the vet thinks I'm between 9 and 11. My fur may be graying, but it's like the saying goes: your only as young as you feel! I have lots of energy to do all sorts of fun things with you and I love EVERYTHING. Need to get outside for some exercise? I love to go for walks or hikes! Wanna stay inside? I love to play with my toys or cuddle with you after a long day! Need a traveling companion? Car rides are my favorite! I also ... (Read More)enjoy just relaxing in my bed or playing with my toys. I don't want to brag but my foster mom says I'm super smart. Since coming to live with her I have learned 'sit', 'stay', 'down' and I even learned how to ring a bell when I need to go outside. I have also been going to classes where I am learning 'place' and also working on how to behave properly around other dogs. Even though I'm getting better at ignoring other dogs in my vicinity on walks, I would prefer to be the only animal in your life. I have been patiently waiting for my furever family because I know good things come to those who wait but nothing would make me smile bigger than having my own home and my own family this holiday season. My unconditional love and gratitude would be all yours, and with my happy go lucky attitude I make a great sidekick to any situation your superhero is a part of! If you are interested in learning more about Callie, please fill out an application on our website by copying and pasting the following link into your browser. http://www.brokentailrescue.org/adoption-application/ Callie is being fostered in Grafton.

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.

    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.
