If we could take him, we would. He is so sweet and well-mannered. Knows some basic commands. Is a loving, 67 lb lap dog wannabe. Please, someone give this guy the family he deserves. The shelter is calling him Benson. Thanks!

    Blue is black/white and brindle un neutered male pit bull. He has two different colored eyes -One is ice blue and the other is brown. Probably weighs about 60 lbs. He has been in our family since he was a small pup. My x husband has had him for the past several years, but unfortunately he passed away in Oct 2017. So I took him home with me. However I have 2 dogs of my own, one is another male pit/lab mix and they do not get along. It has became too much for me to deal with, but first and foremost Blue is not getting the attention he deserves. He is a very friendly and loving dog and deserves the best.

    Nigel is still a pup and has a lot of energy. Nigel needs an experienced handler because he was not socialized when he was a puppy. He needs someone that is willing to help him channel his energy to be productive. He is fearful of new things and needs someone that is willing to work with him and teach him these things will not hurt him. He has come a long way in the time that I have had him. He takes treats very gently and gives gently kisses. He loves belly rubs. Nigel is very smart and willing to learn. He doesn't do well with cats. He needs proper introductions to other dogs, because again he tends to be fearful outside of his regular ... (Read More)routine. He is crate trained and house trained.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Adult

Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Seizures,
 Abused/Neglected 

    [Read About Natural Seizure Care] This is Phoebe. Phoebe was pulled from the Critical List at MAS. There was just something about those eyes that told me she had to be saved.Phoebe has had multiple litters of puppies and it definitely took a toll on her body. Phoebe was heartworm positive, however she has completed her treatment and is recovering nicely. After her re-check from the hw treatment she will be spayed before she is placed in a home. She is current on vaccinations, crate trained, house trained,and is working on basic commands. Phoebe is so sweet and when she looks at you with those eyes, it just makes you melt. Her fur is so soft. She is pretty curious and ... (Read More)likes to get into things if allowed to roam free.She wants to be near her human at all times when she is out of her crate. Phoebe has had seizures in the past, however we think it may have been hw or medication related. I give her some extra vitamins and supplements to keep that in check because we didn't want to start her on meds until we knew if this was just a side effect of the things listed above. So far, so good but she will need a family that is diligent and mindful of the seizure activity so they can keep an eye on her.This girl wants to be part of family so bad after years of being bred for money. Her eyes should say it all. (Less)

I am heartworm negative, microchipped, and weigh a trim 55 pounds. I'm ready for life on a couch! My ancestry is American Bulldog with a few other breeds probably thrown in there. Come adopt me and see what a true couch potato looks like! Rocket is a male pitbull mix found as a stray on Davis Street. He is brown in color and was wearing a collar with a lock on it. He is very much improved now on weight and has really come around so he is available to adopt or rescue. He has been fully vetted and is heartworm negative and microchipped. He has high anxiety toward the other dogs and will latch onto another dog if given the chance. He also has really started growling at barking at men who have come to visit him.

Rescue Me ID: 17-07-31-00507Roman (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    One look at Roman's face, neck and legs; and you'll know his history up to when he was rescued. The intake photos of this (likely) bait dog (too graphic to include here) show he couldn't have been a great competitor in the ring. When his owners fled the area, he was left behind, chained without food or water but with open tear wounds festering and a collar so tight, it was embedded in his neck. Turn the page on this sweet boy, and you'll find a heart full of love for the kindness of our volunteers and the strangers who subsequently showed him compassionate attention. He's such a grateful cuddle bug, he'll work his way onto your lap on the ... (Read More)sofa or lean against you for a massage if you're standing. Roman is about four years old, weighs a strong 45 pounds, and responds cheerfully to every human he's met since entering our program. He's up to date on all shots, neutered, heartworm negative, microchipped, and on preventatives for parasites. Quite the food-motivated hound, Roman is attending obedience classes and is doing great with his sit, down and heel commands. 'Stay' is a tough assignment for such an exuberant dog; but he's getting there. His wag motor is always in high gear (watch that tail!), and he especially enjoys soft toys and an energetic game of tug. Roman has also now graduated from basic obedience training and ready to learn more! Most of the time Roman's happy with canine neighbors, but you can't blame him for an occasional tendency to be suspicious of their intentions. For this reason, we are seeking an adoptive household with no other pets. If you have a soft spot in your heart for a dog that has surfaced from a miserable, tortured existence and bounded into a life of happy playfulness and eagerness to learn what you have to teach him, then Roman may be the perfect 'best friend' for you!

PIease Read Before Adopting a Pit Bull in Tennessee
    Pit Bull Dogs can make good pets in Tennessee 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.
