Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Meet Leah, she is such a sweet heart!! Leah has not had an easy life although we don't know all the details we do know she was in a very unstable household and was removed because of it. She is living in our home with 3 dogs and 2 cats. When she first arrived she was a very scared little girl!! She followed me everywhere didn't want to be out of my sight. She does not like being in a crate or walking into small enclosed area like a bathroom. She is very well behaved, no jumping she is house trained, knows basic commands and walks pretty well on a leash. Leah has adjusted very well over the past few weeks. Her personality is starting to show ... (Read More)she is such a happy dog her favorite time of day is when it's time to eat, she gets very excited and does her happy dance. She enjoys running around a fenced in yard and enjoys playing chase with her dog friend. She doesn't show any interest yet with toys although she likes to chase a snow ball. Leah is pretty mellow and loves to lay on the couch next to you, but also would love a good hike. She is nervous around strangers but with proper introductions she does very well. We are not sure on Leah's breed she could be a pit mix, she is on the small side 35-40 lbs, about 2-3 years old, is spayed up to date on vaccinations. We prefer to adopt her in a home without young children because she is still uneasy in certain situations and young children tend too move fast. (Less)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Most Cats 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Name: Radar Sex: Male Breed: Besenji/Pit Mix Age: 8 months old Weight: 48 lbs Good with: Dogs and dog savy cats. Untested with kids Radar is being fostered locally and looking for his forever home. He was found abandoned in a parking lot and it was clear he wasn't taken care of. He is a very sweet boy who is good with other dogs and cats. Here are the comments from his foster mom after just a couple days! He is still settling in.... Radar is an absolute love bug. He is full of puppy playfulness but is happy to snuggle up with anyone willing. He leans right in to you, tail wagging, big smile and will do anything for a back or belly rub. He ... (Read More)knows sit and is working on down and place. He sleeps quietly through the night and is still sleepy when I wake him up the morning. His favorite toys are squeaky toys, his KONG and he is good at fetch. We are working on a leave it command and his pulling on a leash. He can get puppy mouthy when playing but is pretty good with corrections and is a very strong boy so may accidentally knock over little ones. Radar is still getting used to the idea that food will come every day for the rest of his life so we feed him alone so he doesn't have to worry that someone or something will take it away. He sleeps in his crate but will get nervous if the door is closed. If you are interested in adopting, fill out an adoption application at www.survivortails.org!

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Trooper is a gorgeous 1 1/2 year boy who was rescued last August from NYC Animal Care and Control's kill list (he had developed a cough). After lots of love and care, he is now a very happy Tripawd and ready for his forever home! Trooper is a very cuddly and sweet, funny pup who loves to run, play ball and frisbee, and could spend hours in the pool, swimming and diving for toys. Trooper is healthy, housebroken, UTD on vaccinations, neutered and microchipped. Trooper is great with most dogs he has met, male and female, young and old, big and small. He spends lots of time with a pack of wonderful fosters, and they all love playing and ... (Read More)laying around all day, even sharing treats, toys, and feeding together without a hitch. Trooper is unknown with young children and cats. Anyone looking to adopt Trooper should be ready to continue his training as he is still fairly young and has some leash reactive behavior. He is available through private adoption, and I require a home check and vet references to adopt Trooper. This is such a wonderful boy, anyone lucky enough to bring him home will be forever grateful, and forever in love. Many more photos as well as videos of Trooper playing with his friends, and having fun in the pool are available. ** PLEASE EMAIL ME ONLY as I work nights and am often unable to to return calls in a timely manner! Trooper is an instant favorite with everyone he meets, and he will be incredibly missed, leaving with a huge piece of my heart. (Less)

    Hey everyone, this is Ace. Our son brought him home from CA when he returned from college and is not responsible enough to care for him. He is a great dog, very loyal, loves car rides, likes to cuddle, and loves to play outside. We have a kitten and an older lab and he gets along great with both, however we aren't looking to get a new dog at this time. He is house broken and can be left alone for hours without an accident. Once he likes you, he will be your best friend and follow you everywhere. He is up to date on all of his shots, neutered and is in great health. While in CA, he spent a lot of time our son's girlfriend's daughter, who is 7 ... (Read More)years old, and they got along great. He is a good dog that is looking for a caring home. (Less)

I have lots of fun when I am outside, especially running around with my foster brother: I just tumble and play play play. After playtime I also like to cuddle! My foster mom ... (Read More)calls me a 'Velcro dog', which means I like to follow her around and be by her side. I am a considerate house guest-- my foster mom says any day now I'll start doing the laundry and making coffee! I am also sweet about sharing my edible goodies-that is, I am not food aggressive around other dogs or people, and take treats gently from hands. Mostly I'm looking for a family to display my goofy smile to and share kisses with my big tongue.

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.

Rescue Me ID: 15-01-15-00410Tia (female)

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.

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)

Personality: Average Energy 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Callie will be at the Aveda store at the South Shore Plaza on Saturday 3/28/15 from 1-2pm. 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.

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.
