Rescue Me ID: 14-11-21-00067Cooper (male)

Pit Bull    Age: Puppy

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

    Meet Cooper! Cooper is a happy, friendly, 50 pound, 1½ year old pit bull who's a waggy, licky bundle of goofy affection-- he's never met a person he didn't like! He'd love to snuggle with you on the sofa or leeeeeeeean lovingly against you or sit on your feet or rest his 8,000 pound head on your lap. He would ESPECIALLY love to share that sandwich-- but he'll wait patiently at a polite distance because he's a good boy. Cooper plays a ridiculous game where he pushes his head under the sofa throw (with the entire rest of this body sticking out) and you have to pretend you can't find the doggie and then you uncover his head and ... (Read More)THERE's the doggie! If you've ever hung out with a two year old you probably know this game. :-) Outside, he loves to play "chase the squeaky snake on a rope". He has great play manners and is careful of people, for an awkward young goofball anyway. He's friendly towards other dogs, although he has a typical dash right in, "yeehaw!" pittie greeting style which some dogs will find off-putting. Cooper's a lean 50 lbs and very athletic-- if he jumps straight up he can get the top of his head over the neighbor's 6' privacy fence to take a peek! Cooper's a very smart boy and a fast learner. His ideal family will take him to classes, which he'll love and be a star at. You've got a head start since he already knows sit, down, stay, and come! You can watch videos of his early training sessions at http://youtu.be/ACp9dTL7PkY and http://youtu.be/04zhkn4PFeA . Cooper walks well on a leash, but he hasn't had a lot of exposure to the world, so everything is new and exciting and needs to be sniffed or stared at. Regular long walks are all he needs to gain a little more experience. If you have a good sense of humor and think that having a 50 pound eternal puppy sounds like a blast, your home might be the one Cooper's been waiting for!

Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Pumpkin! He is a 10lb Chihuahua mix, who is estimated to be 1-2years old. Poor Pumpkin ended up in a local shelter, where he spent most of his days hiding in his kennel shaking, afraid of everything. Now that he is in a home, we are seeing a happy, sweet and playful pup! He is brand new to BTR, so please check back for updates as we get to know him better. Pumpkin is still very scared in new situations, and freezes. If you go slow with him and show him that he's safe, he will warm right up. He is playful, friendly and cuddly with people, but he needs a slow approach, especially with men (it just takes an extra few minutes). Pumpkin ... (Read More)LOVES dogs, and would love to go to a home with a playmate. He is great at dog parks and on walks, but seems inexperienced with leash walking, so we use a harness and this is helping. He is quiet and good in his crate, so apartment life would suit him just fine. He loves toys of all kinds, and bones to chew on, so keep those coming!

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Hi there! My name is Bella and I am a seven year old, 28 lb whippet/cattle dog mix. My owner had to move yesterday and couldn't take me with her, so, understandably, I'm pretty sad and confused. I may bark and lightly growl initially but I am super friendly, loving, and affectionate-- just a bit scared now that I am in a new place after 7 years with my family. However, I do warm up-- I promise! I I lived with small children and I am good with dogs and cats. I am house trained; I will bark to get your attention and then walk in circles in front of the door to alert you that I need to go out (not to brag but my foster mom says I'm super ... (Read More)smart). I do like my crate as I look at it as my place of comfort--the door stays open and my special stuffed animal and my bed from my old home are in there. My foster mom also says that I am also quite the hoarder because I will carry into my crate almost anything left lying on the floor--shoes, jackets, stuffed animals, my leash--you name it, it's fair game if it's on the floor. The great thing is that I just like to snuggle with these goodies--I don't chew them (my foster mom says I am pretty funny. Oh, she also calls me a coyote because she thinks I look like one--you'll have to come meet me in person and tell me if you agree with her! Boy, does this lady have a lot to say!!). That magical time of the year is fast approaching and all I really want is to find a home where someone will love me forever.

Lab Mix    Age: Young Puppy

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

    Meet Thor! Thor is a 26 lb Labrador mix who is about 6 months old. His coloring is really beautiful, almost a white! Thor came to us via a rescue in Puerto Rico where he was found with his 8 littermates. He was really nervous at the shelter and is doing well in foster care. Thor will need to learn a lot of things! He is afraid of people and will hide from them. He is set up in a penned off area in the center of his foster home and his foster mom has to use a leash to walk him from the area to the backyard. He also needs to remain leashed in the fenced in backyard for now until he learns that people are FUN! He is eating treats and ... (Read More)will allow some petting, and he even snuggled his foster mom on the couch on his first morning. His favorite thing is when his foster dog brothers are put into his pen with him. He LOVES their company and tries to get them to play by hitting his paws on the ground and play bowing. Thor should only go to a home with another playful dog who can show him the ropes. Thor's foster mom has taken in a few dogs with similar temperament and nervousness as Thor's. She says that these types of dogs are the most rewarding to foster and adopt. They really are the sweetest little love bugs around once they realize how awesome life can be. As an adopter you have the opportunity to change a life and show a dog who may not have a great past that everything is going to be alright. They make so much progress in such little time, every hour brings new improvements! Thor hasn't been around cats or kids but we think a home with kids 12 and up would be ideal for him. Thor is brand new to the rescue and we will post more information as we get to know him. If you are interested in finding out more about Thor, please fill out an application on our website by copying and pasting the following link into your browser: http://www.brokentailrescue.org/adoption-application/ Thor is being fostered in Holyoke and the adoption fee is $375.

Ruby is just a baby at 14 weeks olds and needs an adopter that will patiently show her that the world isn't as big and scary as she thinks it is.

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Hank, the Gentle Giant! Hank is a fun-loving one year old male lab-pittbull mix who weighs in at 74lbs, who thinks he's a lap dog. Imagine Nana from "Peter Pan" and "Clifford the Big Red Dog" all rolled up into a large one-year old puppy and you have a snapshot of Hank. Hank has been friendly and appropriate with all animals he's met, including another male pit, a female Rottie, a male mixed breed, a duck (!), pet rats, and a cat. He is young, energetic, and interested in everything. Hank would do great in an active home that's used to big, enthusiastic dogs! Hank's enthusiasm is not just expressed in his ... (Read More)eagerness to play with other dogs, or play ball, (see the video for his "drop it" skills!), but also in his constantly wagging tail. His tail does NOT stop, and he has that happy slow wag when he's relaxing, or a whole body wiggle and loosey-goosey swag that just travels from his nose to the tip of his tail. Hank also loves to show affection by providing free face and hand-washing. Just ask his toddler foster brother! Hank is house-broken, up to date on his vaccines, neutered, and working on his leash manners. He is a bundle of love who would thrive in a role as ambassador for large dogs everywhere and would be excellent at providing comfort to those in need.

Domestic Cat    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Bazzle is a sweet B&W tuxedo cat who LOVES to be petted! He was a street cat until some nice person decided he would be safer living inside and took him to our shelter. He was clearly an indoor cat before because he is perfectly trained and very affectionate to his humans. One of the most interesting things about Bazzle is that he is POLYDACTYL. That means he has an extra toe on each of his paws. He is about 8 years old and is happy to just sit in the sun or rub against your leg and purr. Still plenty of years left in this sweet boy! It is unknown how Bazzle will do with other cats, dogs, or children, so it is best for him to go into a ... (Read More)single-pet household.

    Meet Ghost! Despite his name he is 100% real and 100% adorable. Ghost is a little guy at 8 lbs and 9 months old, but don't let the short legs fool you. He's very active and loves to play, go for walks, or go for hikes in the woods. He even has fun playing in the water at the beach! His favorite toys are paper towel rolls and acorns, and like any little kid he loves to play in the leaves. Back home after his adventures, Ghost is a lap, bed, or couch cuddler who'll give you kisses. He loves attention and contact, and he'd probably do best in a family where someone is home most of the time. Ghost loves other dogs and cats, especially ... (Read More)young cats that will play with him, and he's very affectionate with people he knows. He is slow to warm up to new people, though, and gets stressed if they try to push him too fast. It can take him a few hours or even a day or so to get completely comfortable with someone. His ideal home will understand this and let him get acquainted at his own pace. It's completely worth it to make friends with this little lovebug!

Rescue Me ID: 14-09-05-00307Gilligan (male)

Lhasa Apso Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Most Cats 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Gilligan! He is a Pekingese and Lhasa Apso mix who weighs about 14 lbs. He is estimated to be about 2 or 3 years old. Gilligan came to rescue from a local shelter and feels great after a much needed haircut! He was a very good boy for his haircut, even though we knew that he was in some pain due to the matting he was licking the hand of the groomer. He is such a silly little dog. His face is just too cute and he can usually be found rolling around on the hardwood floors to scratch his back or playing fetch with his squeaky toys. Gilligan is very affectionate with his foster family and good with his foster siblings; he also seems ... (Read More)to be fine with cats. He is however weary of strangers and strange dogs. He is looking for a home where an experienced dog owner can provide him with gentle but firm leadership; someone who is good at training dogs or is willing to work with a trainer to improve Gilligan's tolerance of strangers. At this point, Gilligan can only go to a calm home with little coming and going. Gilligan would do best in a single-family home with a securely fenced in yard. If you are interested in finding out more about Gilligan, please fill out an (a href='http://www.brokentailrescue.org/adoption-application/' target='new')application(/a). Gilligan is being fostered in Somerville. The adoption fee is $375.

Dachshund Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Hi there! My name is Rayna! I am a two year old, 22 lbs Dachshund mix. My foster mom isn't sure what I'm mixed with - I look like a German Pinscher with short legs! I would love to live with other dogs so that we can play together. I'm good in my crate and like to go for walks. I pull on the leash but my foster mom is working on that. I'm a little nervous when I meet new people especially men. But after a few minutes, I realize that they're OK and nothing to worry about. An owner who is active would be perfect for me. I listen well to corrections. I'm affectionate and love to be petted - I follow my foster mom wherever she goes. I ...

Rescue Me ID: 14-08-26-00170Rocky (male)

Domestic Cat    Age: Young Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Rocky is a gorgeous, black, long-haired four-year-old. Weighing in at about 13 pounds, he's a big boy! He also has gigantic double paws. He can be quite a love bug, giving headbutts and purring, but there's an occasional hiss in there, too! Rocky was an owner surrender. After being an indoor-outdoor cat and transitioning between homes, he had some inappropriate peeing problems. He has no medical problems, though, and we think that in the right household he will adjust and pee only where he's supposed to. He would do best in a household without other cats, and probably without children. But he doesn't seem to mind small dogs. If you are ...

Rescue Me ID: 14-07-21-00546Coach Tully (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier 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 

    Coach Tully is 72 pounds of pure muscle and power. His energy and athleticism, combined with his desire to please, lead us to believe that he would excel at agility courses. He certainly is a champ when it comes to the high jump! If he played football, he would be the nose tackle! He is active and goofy and loving and he wants to run and play and chase balls and get petted and bug his foster brothers and sisters to play. We would be lying if we said he was calm and well-mannered because he's not. He fairly bursts with excitement and the world is his oyster and he is busy jumping from one adventure to the next. This dog loves walks, hikes, ... (Read More)playing ball, and any activity you can give him. When he is done playing, he wants to pass out on the sofa upside down next to you. He loves people and other playful dogs, and he would do exceptionally well in a home with a dominant playful female dog. He loves to be pushed around by a bossy female. He takes correction very well from both humans and other dogs. If you have a lazy older dog who wants to sleep in front of the fireplace and not be disturbed, your own dog might bite you if you adopt this one because Tully sees no reason for any dog not to play. Cats should also play. Tully loves cats and does play bows to coax them to play with him. Once he gets enough play time, Tully loves to chill in the house. He will sit next to you while you work on your computer or watch TV. He likes to put his head in your lap to get petting. He is loving boy who needs a family of his own. Even though he is big and strong and excitable, he is a sweet and loving boy. He would love a family who will work with him to help him stay calm and save the athletics for the field! Coach Tully is neutered, vaccinated, and ready for his new home. If you are interested in finding out more about Tully, please fill out an application on our website by copying and pasting the following link into your browser. http://www.brokentailrescue.org/adoption-application/ Tully is being fostered in Framingham and the adoption fee is $300.

Rescue Me ID: 14-06-30-00264Skippy (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Skippy is a sweet, calm, eight year old mixed breed who is great with other dogs. He loves shredding squeaky toys and playing tug, and taps you with his paw when he wants attention. He also likes his back scratched and will back up to you to get it done. Skippy came to us with a heart murmur and we've had an echocardiogram done, which we can go over with you. He can't exercise too much, but otherwise the murmur isn't bothering him, and he doesn't need any medication now. He might in the future, and because of this, we've reduced his adoption fee. This happy little guy is looking for a forever home with extra fluffy dog beds and lots ... (Read More)of squeaky toys, scritches, and love. He'd be happy with another dog to pal around with as well as with just people to love. If you are interested in finding out more about Skippy, please fill out an application on our website by copying and pasting the following link into your browser. http://www.brokentailrescue.org/adoption-application/ Skippy is being fostered in Millbury and the adoption fee is $250.

Rescue Me ID: 14-06-20-00255JJ 10lbs (male)

Maltese Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Hi, I'm JJ! I might look small, but I make up for that with my BIG personality. I might only be two years old and 10 lbs, but I'm up for a good adventure, and my foster mom says I have TONS of sass. I loooove to be outside, but also am satisfied curling up in my bed or crate and resting while my foster mom does work. I'm even pretty good outside the crate. No chewing or messes yet, though she's not sure if I'm 100% house-trained just yet. I like other dogs and want to play SOOO badly with the resident cats, rats, and birds. I think they're SUPER EXCITING. I could probably get along with any dog-saavy animals. I'm good on my leash and love ... (Read More)going for long walks, and am really good at sitting on command. I love my people and am a wiggly, dancey-prancey little thing who will entertain you all day! I especially love rolling around on the floor, perching on things, and generally being cute. That being said, I need some time to get used to strangers, and I don't think I want to hang out with those jumpy littler humans - I never know what they're going to do and it makes me uncomfortable. I will need a confident leader in the house, otherwise, I'll just run the show. My foster mom says that I have to learn to NOT be the boss. Hmph. We'll chat about that. I love snuggling and sitting with my people, giving kisses, having my belly rubbed, all the good things in life. But I need it to be on my terms. So many people think that just because I'm BEAUTIFUL, I should be petted. Earn my trust, and you'll get my love. How about that?

Lab 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 

    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 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 ... (Read More)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. My unconditional love and gratitude would be all yours.

Rescue Me ID: 13-09-22-00422Bella (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Most Cats 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi! My name is Stella Bella and I am one of the sweetest dogs you will ever meet! I absolutely adore being with my people! I will follow you all around the house just to be by your side- but I'm also independent enough to respect when you need your space. I am around 7 years old but you would never know it by the way I play! I LOVE toys. Give me a toy bin full of squeaky toys and stuffed chewy things and I am in heaven. I have plenty of energy to go for long jogs with you if you are the type but am just as content to stop and smell the flowers on walks. I'm really the best mix of personality you could ask for- energetic and fun outside and ... (Read More)cuddly and calm indoors. I would love to follow you around the house and lay softly snoring at your feet(or by your side) all day. I am so quiet and gentle, you might not even know I am there! I may even roll over for some tummy rubs (okay, that's not a maybe, I will definitely want tummy rubs!). I am totally house-trained, almost never bark, and am okay hanging out on the couch all day, even if you aren't home. My absolute favorite thing(after belly rubs and stopping to smell the flowers) is car rides! If you are someone who needs a good navigator in your passenger seat, I'm your dog! I had a rough life before coming into rescue, but despite being treated so poorly, I am still the nicest, sweetest girl you will ever meet! I need to work on my leash manners, but I do great with a good harness. I am already spayed, completely house-trained, and up to date with my shots. I am great with most other dogs and stellar(get it? Stella-r!) with cats, but I would also be content to be the only recipient of your attention! I know how to sit, and lie down and I am a quick learner. In one foster home I learned meal-time manners(sit before breakfast! sit before dinner!) and impressed my foster mom with taking a seat(unasked!) in the hallway when I saw her pick up my harness and leash. I really just want to make you happy and spend time with you! I have waited such a long time to find the right family who will love me as much as I love them! My foster parent is willing to answer any questions that you may have about me.
