Rescue Me ID: 15-02-28-00243  (male)

Pit Bull    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 

    I am assisting the Ashfield Police with finding placement for this dog. Dog is friendly but owner is elderly and frail and dog is too hard to handle and is taking the upper hand. Beautiful blue-nose 1 year old, neutered, so must have had some vaccinations. Pic to be posted asap. Not sure of his name or how he is with other animals or kids.

Rescue Me ID: 15-02-26-00271Cricket (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Cricket is a stunning 10-12 month old male pit mix (we think pincher/lab) that was rescued from NYC Animal Care and Control's kill list (he was a stray brought in with kennel cough!) I have been fostering Cricket for about 5 months now after the family that was originally adopting Cricket, fell through after their existing dog was having behavioral and expensive medical problems. We have since been seeking a home for him as I would keep him in a heart beat, but can not give him the exercise and time he needs with my existing pack. Cricket gets along with all dogs he's been introduced to, and does well with my mixed pack of young and old, ... (Read More)male and female, big and small. It is unknown how he is with cats. Unfortunately, my oldest dog is no longer interested in having Cricket around and they have to be seperated. For this reason, and for the safety of my pack and Cricket as well, I am searching for Cricket's forever home. The rescue that I have worked with in the past just had a huge transport of southern dogs come up and their fosters are full and they are unable to find an open foster home right now. If you are a rescue that is interested in fostering Cricket, I can absolutely continue to pay for Cricket's medical care and am able to donate food to your rescue as wel. Cricket is 10-12 months old, neutered, up to date on shots, and beyond incredible. Attached is one of my favorite photos of Cricket and a video of his appropriate and silly play with other dogs his size. I have tons more video and pictures for anyone that may be interested in Cricket! If you are not with a rescue, I requre a home check and vetinary reference to adopt Cricket. If he makes someone half as happy as he has made me during his temporary stay as a foster, they are one lucky person. Available for adoption 3/5/2015 (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-02-08-00255Duncan (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected,
 Aggressive, Fearful/Anxious 

    DUNCAN IS STILL LOOKING FOR HIS FOREVER HOME. He is 65lb, cockapoo/pit/hound mix who will be 1yr old on February 15th. He needs a home with NO KIDS!! And a large yard. He needs an owner with experience handling dogs with fear aggression. He doesn't trust new people and it takes him time to get used to new people. During this time, he barks, snarls, growls, darts away if the new person tries to touch him, etc. He is very intimidating to new people, but once he warms up, he is the absolute best friend you could ever have. I have spoken with behaviorists about his 'problems' and have been told the behavior can more than likely be managed at the ... (Read More)least and at the most the behavior could be completely reversed, but we don't have the financial ability to provide him with that training. He is an amazing dog and a snuggle bug. We believe he was abused in his last home, causing him to act aggressively towards children he doesn't know and fear adults, especially men. He was born last year in a litter that my dog had, unexpected. He was placed at 12wks old and came home about 4mths ago due to biting a child. The family threatened if we didn't pick him up, they would be putting him to sleep, so we picked him up that day and have worked with him since he came home. He has learned all basic commands (sit, stay, lay down, come, paw and call back. He is also neutered and up to date on shots as well as completely house trained and crate trained. We will be asking a $120 re-homing fee, vet reference, home check and an adoption contract. He will go with his large crate, Thundershirt (anti-anxiety jacket for dogs), dishes, collar and leash.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Seeley is a wonderful dog who aims to please. He's an active dog who loves romping in the snow and exploring the scenery while out on walks, but is also very attentive to his people. He will sit on command (especially for treats!) and he takes treats so gently. He loves to toss a toy around to entertain himself. Seeley is housetrained and cratetrained. He has been briefly introduced to cats and though perplexed about the furry being, he showed no aggression after giving the cat a nose-to-nose sniff. He also gets along well with other dogs. Seeley is very new to our rescue so we will be posting more info as we get to know him. If you ...

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    Harley is a pure bully, half pit half bulldog. Hes all white with a few black spots. Hes about 80lbs of pure muscle. He's extremely energetic and he just wants to play. He nips as playful dogs are known to do, he doesn't bite anyone on purpose. We just have a small child in the house and between her and all her little friends coming over we just dont want to risk it, but hes a very loveable dog and I think he would flourish in a house where hes the only pet, hes a jealous one. Not asking for any money as I rescued him myself. He has a few toys, a collar, a leash and its all his to take with him.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    I am trying to find a home for this dog I know. The owners want to euthanize him because they think no one else will be able to take him. He is always friendly with me but I have seen some social anxiety in him. He needs to be trained and walked because they never walk him. He is black and white and about 50lbs. Not a huge guy. They asked me to bring him to be euthanized and I just can't unless I really try to find him a home. Please email me for a picture. Beautiful dog.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Are you looking for a happy dog who is filled with delight for life? Read on to meet Tia! Tia is a 51 pound female blue staffordshire terrier mix who is believed to be between four/ four and a half years old. Tia still has boundless energy--she was once clocked running alongside a snowmobile at about 30 mph! In addition to running fast in the snow, Tia loves long walks, hikes, and doing any active activity. Tia is happiest when she has an outlet for all of her energy and excitement. Tia is very affectionate with humans, loving them almost as much as activity. Even though she weighs 51 pounds she is quite certain she is a lap dog; she ... (Read More)loves to cuddle! While Tia always wants to snuggle on top of her people she's also content to nestle nicely next to, (but always touching!), her humans. She truly loves being around people, and we believe she'd be fine living with children who can handle her enthusiasm for being energetic. Tia does not mind traveling in the car-she even seems to enjoy it (and has never gotten car sick)- so would make an ideal travel companion for a family who likes to explore New England's various woods and mountains. While Tia is not a puppy she is still working on her manners. She knows 'sit', and without other distractions can 'stay', but needs reinforcement that jumping on guests is not an appropriate greeting, and that fences are not there to test agility(as in, Tia needs to learn that she's not in a race that measures how high and far she can jump). Tia responds well to training and direction when people have the time and discipline to train her. Tia walks nicely in a harness on a leash, however she can strongly pull the walker if she sees another dog. Tia plays appropriately-but very physically-with other dogs at day care, however she does not live well with cats. In a snapshot: Tia is a dog with a zeal for life who would benefit from a cat-less family with an active lifestyle. If you enjoy outdoor activities and the joys(and challenges) of training, then Tia may be a fit for you! Please fill out an application on our website by copying and pasting the following link into your browser: http://www.brokentailrescue.org/adoption-application/ Tia is being fostered in Worcester and the adoption fee is $300.

Rescue Me ID: 15-01-13-00286Nala (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Average Energy 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    Nala is a sweet girl in desperate need of a family to call her own. She has come from a neglectful previous owner whom left her crated all hours of the day, never socialized her, and gave her poor training. Nala is currently with a trainer working on desensitizing her insecurities due to the neglect, trainer reports she is doing wonderful. BUT, Nala needs a foster or forever home to go to. She cannot stay with the trainer past her scheduled time. Local rescuers knew that if she were to be taken to any local pound she would not have survived, and fortunately was able to get her started on her second chance at life. Unfortunately if a ... (Read More)placement cannot be made for this deserving girl she still may end up in the pound. PLEASE (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-12-10-00628Koda- Movie Star Looks (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Koda, a dog who could rival George Clooney in swoon factor! Koda is a real sweetheart-just look at that smile- who is estimated to be two years old and a hearty 60 pounds. Koda is great with everyone he meets, and has been known to stop traffic with his handsome looks! Koda has the best disposition: he is a sweet and playful boy who loves other dogs. Koda is a smart cookie too - he knows sit, down and pretty much has roll-over mastered as well! Though we think he'd be great with kids, Koda is excitable so small kids may be knocked down by his eagerness to play. That being said, we haven't actually seen him with young ... (Read More)children, so he may surprise us and be completely mindful of their space. Koda can be annoying to cats though, so probably shouldn't live with them for their sanity! While he does pull on his leash this is something that Koda's family would be able to work on in private or group training. With his smarts, and consistency from his adoptive family, Koda will be sure to be a model (runway?!) walker. Koda loves playing! He still has some puppy tendencies, so is continuing to learning which toys are his(his favorite toys are antlers!), and which items are off limits. He will need to continue this training in his adoptive home. Koda is neutered, up to date on his vaccinations, house-trained and crate-trained. He is an excellent and respectful player who would love a doggie buddy with whom to play, play play! If you are interested in finding out more about Koda, please fill out an application on our website by copying and pasting the following link into your browser: http://www.brokentailrescue.org/adoption-application/ Koda is being fostered in Framingham and the adoption fee is $300.

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)

    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.

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.'

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant

    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.

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.

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 

    Callie will be at the Aveda store at the South Shore Mall Saturday 2/6/15 from 3-4pm. Please come out to meet this sweet girl! Hi! 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. 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 enjoy just ... (Read More)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. 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 Lunenburg.

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. Unfortunately, Pit Bulls are often used for illegal dog fighting.
