Rescue Me ID: 14-04-18-00255Patches (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hello I am Patches, an 8 year old gorgeous girl with so much love to give. I love nothing more than cuddling with my foster mom or foster brothers ( an 8 year old rottie and an 8 year old beagle). I sit very nicely for treats and am very gentle taking one from foster mom's hand. I have no feeding aggression even if one of the other dogs comes to my bowl. I previously lived with a two year old who would take my bones away while I was chewing them so I would just go find another one. I also let her pile her toys on top of me while I was sleeping. I am housebroken, can sit very nicely and I love to be with my people. I sleep in the room ... (Read More)with my foster mom. I do not chew or destroy anything in her house. I am not crate trained and just sleep on my bed when she is gone. Even though I am 8 I do love to go for a long walk or run around the fenced in yard. A previous foster home had six cats and I was fearful of the large ones but whined and chased the smaller ones in playful manner. I have never met a rabbit so I don't know how I would be in a house with them. If you are looking for a forever friend that just wants to cuddle, lick your face and love you I may be the one for you. If you are interested in finding out more about me please fill out an application on our website http://www.brokentailrescue.org/adoption-application. Patches is being fostered in Leominster 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)

Chihuahua 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 

    Hi I'm Tiny! I am a 4 year old Whippet and Chihuahua mix who weighs about 6 lbs. I am TINY! Can you believe I have even put on some weight since coming into the shelter? They tell me that I need to put on a few more pounds, but I love treats so that shouldn't be a problem. I need a slow introduction to strangers, as I will bark and carry on when we first meet. I am just afraid and once I feel comfortable I will jump on your lap and look for attention.Although I just love the 2 dogs in my foster home, there are some dogs that I don't like. We would have to meet to be sure. I am a great combination of spunky and snuggly and I am enjoying ... (Read More)being picked up and cuddled by my foster mom. I am housebroken if kept on a schedule and sleep all through the night in my crate with my cozy blanket without making a peep. I have been nervous around some new men, I am so small that they can be scary! I am a sweetheart and would love to go to training classes and learn that these people are always bringing me treats! If you are interested in finding out more about Tiny, please fill out an application on our website by copying and pasting the following link into your browser. http://www.brokentailrescue.org/adoption-application/ Tiny is being fostered in Holyoke and the adoption fee is $350.

Animal ID: 1152Lola (female)

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

Health: Vaccinations Current 

    Hello! I'm Lola, a 2-3 year old bundle of LOVE! My favorite activities are snuggling, getting pats and giving kisses. If you're into this, we're a match made in heaven! I am about 55lbs, if you're wondering. I'm good with other dogs, having lived with both males and females. And, cats don't seem to bother me. I have been cooped up in a house for quite some time, with no real attention from people, so please forgive my exuberance! I am just SO HAPPY! I seem to be house trained and am learning about the crate, which I don't mind. My foster parents are teaching me all the rules, and they tell me about this thing called 'obedience ... (Read More)school'. Sounds awesome! Showing off and getting treats... What's not to like?! I can't wait to find my forever home and forever people, won't you consider making me yours? Lola is being fostered in Ludlow, MA and her adoption fee is $300. (Less)

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    Spencer is a gorgeous 8 year old ginger gentleman. He has a lot of dignity except when he displays his vast tummy to the world. He loves scratches, snuggling up to his people and is very friendly. He gets on well with the dog in his foster home. He'll make a wonderful family cat. He currently weighs 22lbs, and if truth be told, could lose a few pounds. He has been diagnosed with diabetes and requires insulin shots twice a day. This isn't as traumatic as it appears. The needles are very thin and he barely notices! We hope that if he loses a few pounds his diabetes will be controlled with a good diet. If you are interested in ...

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Vangie is a sweet eight month old pitbull mix who is solid white except for the adorable black speckles on her ears. She was surrendered to us by her owners when they couldn't afford to care for her any more. Vangie previously lived with kids, cats and other dogs with no issues. She would benefit greatly from some confidence boosting training. A confident dog friend would also be good for her as she really enjoys other dogs. Vangie needs to work on not jumping up but she just loves people so much that she just wants to say hello to everyone. She has already learned sit and she waits patiently for treats. Vangie hasn't been crate trained ... (Read More)in the past but her foster home is working on teaching her to appreciate her crate. (As I type this, she is contently sleeping in the crate.) She is also acclimating to a leash very well. Please stay tuned for updates as we learn more about Vangie. She currently weighs 37 lbs. If you are interested in finding out more about Vangie, please fill out an application on our website by copying and pasting the following link into your browser. http://www.brokentailrescue.org/adoption-application/ Vangie is being fostered in Millbury and the adoption fee is $325.

Maltese Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hello there! I am Yeti! I am a two year old tail chasing ball of fluff and personality! I can't be more than 10 lbs and they think I am a Maltese and Poodle mix. I may be small but I am a big dog in a little body. I love to run around and play. I am great at the dog park and get along with all dogs, big and small, I would even love to go to doggy daycare if you have to work! I love to snuggle and be petted but sometimes I can be a little fussy so please be patient with me! The world can be a scary place and I need a human companion who can take charge and give me the boundaries and structure that I need. I am looking for an adult-only home ... (Read More)please, as I am little and fragile and I like to be the center of attention. I would love to live with other dogs though! I may look like a stuffed animal, but I'm not and I need rules and limits just like any other dog. If you show me who is in charge in a loving and gentle way, I will be your devoted friend. After spending some more time with Yeti we are seeing some behaviors that will need attention. He is small and cute but he is full of personality and he likes to do things on his own terms. He has to learn that he is not in charge and we are looking for an adopter who is willing to seek professional help with his training. He will sometimes growl and show his teeth when being handled, and he has been barking at strangers in the house. He is great out in public with all people that he meets. We think that he would do best in a quiet household with not a lot of visitors. As we spend more time with him we are working on finding out what his triggers are and looking into ways to deter this behavior and will update his profile as we learn more information. (Less)

Chihuahua    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Henry! Henry is a Chihuahua weighing in at 10lbs, who is 10 years young. In the short time that Henry has been with Broken Tail Rescue, he has won the hearts of many volunteers, with his sweet and gentle demeanor. All that Henry really wants are people to call his own and a warm bed or lap to snuggle on. He is a calm, friendly guy who bonds quickly, and whole heartedly loves anyone who gives him some attention. Don't let his age fool you though, Henry is full of life! He can keep up on long walks, trips to the park, and other activities that younger dogs enjoy. Henry is playful with small dogs, but a bit intimidated by large dogs. He ... (Read More)lives with a medium sized dog just fine in his foster home, so it's expected that he could live with a large dog, it just might take some time for him to warm up. A very busy home with young kids is probably not the best match for Henry, but older kids who are respectful and understand that a dog of Henry's size is not a toy should be just fine! Henry is a quiet guy, so he would be ideal for apartment living. He adjusted to the sights and sounds of city living quickly, so we expect that he could live just about anywhere. He loves to tag along for errands, rides well in the car, and walks nicely on a leash. Henry has no problem being handled, which is great because he looks pretty darn cute in dog clothes! He is housetrained, and is fine taking bathroom trips in the morning, after a work day, and before bed. Click on Henry's video to see him in action on the first warm day this Spring! Please consider adopting Henry and giving him the loving home that he so deserves! More photos and videos of Henry can be seen (a href='https://www.facebook.com/EinsteinForAdoption/' target='new')here(/a). If you are interested in finding out more about Henry, please fill out an (a href='http://www.brokentailrescue.org/adoption-application/' target='new')application(/a).

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Hi! My name is Ringo and I'd love to meet you! I am an 8 month old Chihuahua/Beagle mix weighing in at 15 lbs, and I am sweet as pie. I didn't experience a lot in my previous life, so I am spending my days in a foster home overcoming my nervousness, and learning how to be a fun loving puppy. My foster Mom thinks that I'm doing great! After a week of lots of love, treats, and space when I need it, I have learned that the world is not such a scary place after all. I think that taking walks or playing in the park, playing with tennis balls, finding sticks outside, and making new friends is really fun. I also love taking naps! I am a laid back ... (Read More)guy for a pup my age, and although I enjoy activity outside, I'm just as happy hanging with you and cuddling. I have been great with other dogs of all shapes and sizes, as well as people. My foster Mom thinks that I'd do best living in a forever home with kids over the age of 5, who can give me space if I am nervous and want to take a break from the action. I have been fine with the older kids that I've met, I just don't have much experience with the really little ones. I am housetrained and crate trained, and do just fine when left gated in the kitchen when my foster Mom is at work for the day. I also sleep through the night in my doggie bed. I am a fast learner and love treats! I respond to my name and am working on 'sit'. I am a quiet guy, but will alert you with a bark if I think something sounds funny outside. I really need a patient person or family that will work with me during a transition, and praise me for being a social guy. I will re-pay you with kisses and a lifetime of love and gratitude! Thanks for reading about me, and considering adopting a rescue dog!

Rescue Me ID: 14-03-15-00491Tarzan (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 was found as a stray and spent four long months in a Worcester shelter. While I was a favorite with the staff, the stress of the kennel was just too much for me. Thankfully, I've been moved into a foster home and am now enjoying the comforts of quiet living. A warm bed, full meals, and a regular cuddle buddy are significant improvements! I guess you could say I'm a 70lb surfer-dude with a go-with-the-flow attitude. I just take life one day at a time. Right now, I am exploring my interests. So far, I've found that I love rubber balls, playing hide-and-seek ... (Read More)with toys, and taking long walks with my human friends. With the help of a harness, I am learning not to pull when I go out....but sometimes it's hard because I just get so excited!!! I haven't tried jogging yet but my foster mom promised to take me soon. Honestly, I think I'll make a perfect running buddy...hunky, strong, and quick :) Since leaving the shelter, I have shown a lot of interest in other dogs but my excitement can sometimes be overwhelming to others. My foster mom is helping me to approach my playmates in a more relaxed fashion but it would probably be best for me to be the only dog in a house with older kids and/or adults. I am fully housetrained and food/toy motivated. 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, my favorite destinations are the local parks, ponds, and of course, pet stores, where I like to pick out my own toys and treats :) At home, I settle down quickly. While I always enjoy playing with my people, 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. At heart, I am a chill dude looking for a life long friend...could that be you???

Rescue Me ID: 14-01-31-00173Guinness (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Hi my name is Guinness and I am loving life right now! I am a Chihuahua and Miniature Pinscher mix, am about 1 year old and weigh about 8 lbs. My daily schedule consists of playing, then a long nap, with some more playing, and an even longer nap. My favorite place to be is on the back of the couch on top of a blanket. I was so nervous when I came to my foster home but now I run around the house like I have been here for years! I am always following my foster mom around hoping that she will chase me and I get so excited when she does! There is a video of my playing that you should watch. I constantly play bow and prance around, my legs ... (Read More)are really long for my body so I look hilarious! I love treats and food. I will try anything and so far I am a big fan of blueberries and bananas, who knew? I know how to sit for a treat and have a lot of potential to learn more tricks. I love to see what my foster mom is cooking so I stand behind her in the kitchen on my hind legs so that I can see the counter tops. I can also jump really high if I get really curious! Maybe you could enroll me in agility classes? I would put those big dogs to shame with my skills! I sleep in a dog bed in my foster mom's room at night, although I am able to jump on the bed I usually do not. When it is really cold I do like to sleep under the covers in the big bed though, she doesn't mind, she said I keep her warm too. I am doing really well with house training and crate training. I am quiet in my crate when the people have to leave the house and usually go potty right when I go outside. It is very cold out though, so sometimes I just want to come right back inside. I like to go for walks but sometimes the leash scares me before it gets put on me. Once it is on I will proudly walk all around the neighborhood. I am great with other dogs and I think I would be ok with cats, I don't even play with toys! I take a little bit of time to warm up to new people but after a few minutes I will probably be jumping on your leg begging for attention. Would you like to meet me? If you are interested in finding out more about Guinness, please fill out an application on our website by copying and pasting the following link into your browser. http://www.brokentailrescue.org/adoption-application/ Guinness is being fostered in Holyoke. 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)

Domestic Cat    Age: Young Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Sally came to us from Worcester as a shy little gal and has come a long way since then! She has warmed up to our volunteers and is becoming so affectionate and loves to play and roll around! She loves treats and playing with her catnip mouse toy. And we think she'd make the perfect only cat in a loving household. Sally should be the only cat in her forever home, but we think she might like dogs! We know for sure that she loves people, though, and would love to meet you. Sally's cropped ear just means that she was spayed while she was still a stray. We think it gives her pretty face even more character! If you are interested in finding ...
